Beyoncé modeled Ivy Park in one of her three British Vogue covers, and, well, that’s one way to promote a new collection. Days after releasing her second athleisure range with Adidas, Beyoncé was revealed as the star of the magazine’s December 2020 issue, and would appear in a 20-page fashion story shot by 21-year-old photographer Kennedi Carter, who is now the youngest person to have shot a British Vogue cover.
In her most colorful cover, Beyoncé wears a yellow Ivy Park jumpsuit, oversized organza jacket and matching bucket hat that doesn’t appear to be available for purchase, at least as of right now. At $140 for the jumpsuit and $160 for the jacket, the look is decidedly the most affordable of the three. Accessible, on the other hand, it is not, as much of the collection famously sold out in a flash.
Another cover shows Beyoncé in an architectural, black Alexander McQueen evening jacket with red accents, which the brand’s creative director Sarah Burton said was unexpectedly inspired by Welsh love spoons. “The heart is a universal symbol of both strength and love,” Sarah told British Vogue. “Beyoncé is an icon who inspires both of those things in people of all ages around the world.”
And then, of course, there is the final, supremely sexy cover of Beyoncé posing in a mesh bodysuit by Mugler. Creative director Casey Cadwallader said the bodysuit, which is comprised of 64 panels, has been in the works since 2017, and ultimately took 100 hours to sew. Casey said, “Beyoncé is our queen and this look is fit for a queen.”
