Beyonce is a vision in a white gucci dress on the cover of the [September1990] Vogue edition, a seminal moment for Queen Bey in more ways than one. 19659003] Beyonce confirmed the rumors that surfaced last week, and recruited 23-year-old photographer Tyler Mitchell for her cover photos "Vogue." He was the first black photographer in the magazine's 126-year history to record a cover.

"When I started, 21 years ago, I was told that it was hard for me to get on magazine covers because black people did not sell," Beyonce told the magazine. "This is definitely a myth, not just an African American on the cover of the most important month for Vogue, it's the first Vogue cover from an African-American photographer."

While Bey did not give an interview on the subject, she continued her practice of avoiding traditional sit-down interviews on her media appearances, instead recounting an essay that tells the story narrates her second pregnancy in "her own words" revealing a traumatic agony she had not previously shared with the public, including an emergency C section and changes in her postpartum body.

"I was born 218 pounds a day Rumi and Sir," she wrote. I was swollen from blood poisoning and had been on bed rest for over a month. My health and my babies' health were at risk, so I had an emergency C-section. We spent many weeks in the neonatal intensive care unit.

"I had to process this revelation over time," she wrote. "I asked what it meant and tried to put it in perspective. I believe now, that's why God has blessed me with my twins. Male and female energy could coexist and grow in my blood for the first time. I pray that I can break the generation spells in my family and that my children will have a less complicated life.
