GLAM EXCLUSIVE: A First Look at Beyonce’s 2nd Calendar
Queen Beyonce is back again, ready to give even more to her loyal fans. After an epic summer on the run with Jay Z, providing her BeyHive with intimate video footage of their personal family life with Blue Ivy, she's finishing the season with one more offering.
If the cover of CR Fashion Book, plus the inside spread wasn't enough, Beyonce created an official calendar for 2015 (the second she's launched), posing for 12 original images along with a centerfold. Glam exclusively has the first look at February and June, as well as the breathtaking centerfold, all of which are beyond stunning. (No surprise there, of course.)
For February, Beyonce worked with Nick Farrell to achieve the perfect shot in the surf. She's sporting a gold headdress with feathers and a matching accented top and bottom quite similar to the outfit she wore in the video for “Put it in a Love Song” with Alicia Keys. Giving that epic Beyonce posing, she's transporting us to the beaches of Brazil in a single photo.
As for June, the look appears to be a take on one of her “Partition” costumes, a flapper style headdress with matching triangle top. (If the look is indeed the same from her video, the hat was sourced from Crazy Horse Paris' archive, paired with a vintage crystal bra and body chain by Lorraine Schwartz.) Robin Harper captured the more intimate, black and white shot which portrays Beyonce in a private moment.
For the centerfold, the honor went to photographer Yosra El-Essawy whoemployed a bit of backlighting to further highlight the beauty of Beyonce. A cut out bandage style bathing suit provided the outfit, while she allowed her shorter hair to show off that spectacular gaze we've all come to know from the brilliant talent and entertainer.
Photographers for this year’s calendar include Yosra El-Essawy, Santiago & Mauricio, Nick Farrell, Robin Harper, and Mason Poole. The calendar retails for $14.99, which you can purchase on her site.
