Okay, we really liked how W styled Xtina for the July issue, but attention must be paid to the lady who shares cover space with her this month.
W Magazine July 2011 Issue
Editorial: Beyoncé: Fierce, Fearless, Female

On her videos: “When I sing a song, I definitely have the image for the video in my mind. I kind of hear the choreography that will be in the video, and I can see how I’ll look, even before anyone—the record company, the director—has heard the song.”
On naming her album 4: “The fans have named the album 4, and four is my favorite number. It’s an important number in my life: the date of my birthday, my mom’s birthday, my husband’s birthday, the day I got married. Barack Obama is the 44th president, and I performed ‘At Last’ by Etta James at his inauguration.”
The interview’s only mildly interesting, but the pictures are FABULOUS. Seriously, the girl has a history of fierce, but she’s turned up the fierce dials to 11 with this one. It’s not just the fantastic styling and makeup; she really BROUGHT IT for the camera.
