Beyonce Makes History By Hiring The First Black Photographer For ‘Vogue’ September Cover
Beyonce continues to show the world why she is the "Queen Bey".
She has hired 23-year-old Tyler Mitchell, who is the first black photographer to shoot a cover for the magazine in its 126-year history.
Vogue editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour, has had complete control over each issue of the magazine, down to selecting the outfits worn by celebs on the cover. However, reports are saying the September cover will be her last issue.

Mitchell is no stranger for his work as he previously did work for Marc Jacobs, Givenchy, Ray-Ban, Nike, Converse, Mercedes Benz along with a host of others.
