Pop star Beyonce is on the cover of British Vogue’s December 2020 issue and she debuts on the cover with not one, not two, but three cover images! Yes, all the covers are pretty lovely.

For British Vogue’s new issue, the singer was photographed by 21-year-old Kennedi Carter.

Editor-in-chief of the magazine, Edward Enninfulsays about Beyonce, “I had the enormous honour of interviewing Beyoncé, and working with the gifted up-and-coming photographer Kennedi Carter on a 20-page fashion story. At just 21, Kennedi becomes the youngest photographer to capture a British Vogue cover. Everyone always wants to know what it’s like to work with Beyoncé and her incredible team, and the answer is… flawless. A perfectionist to the core, more than anything, she wanted her Vogue moment to be filled with positivity as this trickiest of years draws to a close. As ever with Beyoncé’s goals, she got her wish.”

In the issue, Beyonce talks about how she feels changed by the events of 2020 as well as spending a considerable portion of her creative life working to elevate black, and specifically African, voices.

Cardi B, who is one of the four stars to cover Vogue magazine’s January 2020 issues, gave her opinion on feminism. She also explained why she got back with Offset after they broke up.

On feminism, Cardi, whose birth name is Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, said: “Women always want to talk about feminism and supporting everybody, except if it doesn’t fit your category of what to support.

“Certain women that claim they are feminists only think that a certain type of woman should represent that. Like oh, you have to have a college degree, and you have to fu**ing be, practically, like, a senator, or Mother Teresa, or a Christian holy woman. No, you do not.

“Feminism means being equal to a man, and I am.”

On why she got back with Offset after she separated from him for cheating on her last year, she said: “Everybody has issues. I believe in forgiveness. I prayed on it. Me and my husband, we prayed on it. We had priests come to us. And we just came to an understanding like, bro, it’s really us against the world.”

She added: “He has my back for everything, I have his back for everything, so when you cheat, you’re betraying the person that has your back the most. Why would you do that? We have come to a clear understanding. For me, monogamy is the only way. I’ll beat your a– if you cheat on me.

Addressing fans who weren’t in support of her and Offset getting back together, she said: “When me and my husband got into our issues — you know, he cheated and everything — and I decided to stay with him and work together with him, a lot of people were so mad at me; a lot of women felt disappointed in me.

“But it’s real-life sh**. If you love somebody and you stop being with them, and you’re depressed and social media is telling you not to talk to that person because he cheated, you’re not really happy on the inside until you have the conversation. Then, if you get back with them, it’s like, how could you? You let all of us down.”

Anyone who had a Barbie doll growing up was rightfully obsessed with dressing them up in different ways.

Now, Vogue has commissioned six young fashion designers to dress the icon in their signature style, with one of them being Nigerian designer, Mowalola Ogunlesi.

Mowalola launched her eponymous brand nearly two years ago, and has since styled Solange for Dazed Magazine; Skepta’s hazy “Pure Water” video; Nike’s Naija World Cup kit launch; and Grammy-winning rapper, Drake, who was spotted wearing a custom Mowalola jacket.

Now, for the brand’s latest dose of international acclaim, Mowalola got to dress Barbie in her signature style, which is best described as free-spirited. This certainly translates to Barbie’s latest look – a neon green tie-dye co-ord, which is a part of her S/S20 collection.

Speaking about her designs and her Barbie to Vogue, Mowalola said:

“Mine is a world where everyone is free in terms of what they wear, in terms of how they think, and my women aren’t threatened by anyone – they are taking back their power.”

She is a Mowalola superhero – strong, captivating and ready to have a really good time. I want to be wherever she’s going.”

Here’s a photo of the original Mowalola piece:

The image is one of several photos created by Mitchell with Beyoncé for Vogue‘s September issue last year, when he became the first African-American to shoot a cover for the magazine.

Mitchell wrote on his Twitter handle:

A year ago today we broke the flood gates open Now I’m glad to share this picture is being acquired into the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery’s permanent collection.


Toyin Ojih Odutola has gained a lot of popularity over the years for her pen ink drawings, which raise pertinent questions about the construct of blackness. Now, with a recent sale of one of her stunning pieces, she’s officially the third highest selling Nigerian artist of all time. 

After moving from Nigeria to America at the age of five, Ojih Odutola became aware of her blackness and began questioning her identity. Due to the shock of this transition, she used art as a coping mechanism, and over time, it transformed into an “investigative, learning activity” for her. 

Speaking with Vogue about how art helped her escape, Odutola said:

“I was obsessed, capturing everything I saw and being fascinated with the incredibly simple task of looking at something and transmitting it onto paper. It’s an immediate magic.”

Yesterday at the Sotheby’s, Toyin sold one of her fantastic drawings, titled ‘Compound Leaf’, for £471,000 (roughly N215 million), making her the 3rd highest selling Nigerian artist of all time — behind fellow female artist, Njideka Akunyili Crosby, and the legendary Ben Enwonwu.
