Beyoncé graces the cover of the September issue of CR Fashion Book, from former French Vogue Editor Carine Roitfeld. It's the first-ever collaboration between the two, and they totally pulled it off; not only does Beyoncé look stunning in looks from Prada, Saint Laurent, and Givenchy (the shoot was styled by Givenchy creative director Riccardo Tisci), but the singer also nailed her avant-garde poses and even paid homage to her hit song "Drunk in Love" while posing with a Chanel surfboard on her back.
Along with the gorgeous photos is a poem written by Beyoncé called "Bey the Light" in which she muses about her 2-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy. She writes, "It's my daughter, she's my biggest muse. There's someone, we all find out soon, more important than ourselves to lose." She also sheds some light on her onstage alter ego, Sasha Fierce: "Though we're different as blue and red, I'm not afraid to draw from her in performance, rifts, even in bed."
