Beyoncé slays, OK? On Thursday, March 31, Elle magazine released the stunning cover for their May 2016 issue, featuring none other than the beautiful Queen Bey.
In the image, the superstar, 34, abandons her signature long locks in favor of a short curly ‘do. The “Formation” singer also shows off major leg, wearing pieces from her new athleisure line, Ivy Park.
According to the fashion mag, the normally tight-lipped Grammy winner sat down for a rare in-depth interview featuring a range of topics that include freedom, feminism, self-love and body positivity.
A preview of Beyoncé’s feature will be released on Monday, April 4, her 8-year wedding anniversary with hubby Jay Z. The issue will officially hit newsstands two days later, on April 6.
The gorgeous cover shot comes the same day the Destiny’s Child alum treated fans to the official ad for Ivy Park. In it, she puts her enviable curves on display in an array of swimsuits, sports bras, leggings and more from the activewear collection.
“I would wake up in the morning and my dad would come knocking on my door, tell me it’s time to go running,” Bey says in the two-minute video. “I remember wanting to stop, but I would push myself to keep going. [Running in the park] taught me discipline and I would think about my dreams. I would think about the sacrifices my parents made for me. I would think about my little sister and how I was her hero. I would look at the beauty around me — the sunshine through the trees. I would keep breathing.”
The pop diva then goes on to explain how her trips to the park became transformative experiences following the birth of her 4-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy.
“There are things I’m still afraid of. When I have to conquer those things I still go back to that park. Before I hit the stage I go back to that park. When it was time for me to give birth I went back to that park,” Beyoncé continues in the clip. “The park became a state of mind. The park became my strength. The park is what made me who I am. Where’s your park?”
