Queen Bey continues her reign as she covers CR Fashion Book’s fifth issue. Yonce looks amazing posing in a Yohji Yamamoto floral cape, a black corset accessorized with a Chanel “surfboardt”, and a sexy floor length trench coat which is perfect for the fall season. Instead of a traditional fashion spread Bey dedicates a poem to her biggest muse: Blue Ivy. "Utopias they don’t much interest me. I always mess things up a bit. It’s chaos, in part, that helps us see. But for my daughter I dream a day when no one roots for others to fail, when we all mean what we say" she says. The poem which is entitled "Bey the Light" was reimagined by Pultizer Prizer winner Forest Gander. Check out an excerpt from the poem below. The issue hits stands on Bey’s birthday: September 4th as a tribute to the icon.
Bey The Light
“It’s my daughter, she’s my biggest muse.
There’s someone, we all find out soon,
more important than ourselves to lose.
I feel a deep bond with young children–
all those photos in my dressing room–
especially those who’ve been stricken,
children I’ve met across the years–
they uplift me like pieces of moon,
and guide me, whispering in my ear.
I’m tuned to spirits, the emotions of others.
And I feel her presence all the time
though I never met my grandmother.
I learned at a very young age,
when I need to tap some extra strength,
to put my persona, Sasha, on stage.
Though we’re different as blue and red,
I’m not afraid to draw from her
in performance, rifts, even in bed.”
