Miss Bey plants her flag once again.
Beyoncé covers the May 2013 issue of Vogue UK magazine in a Jonathan Saunders ensemble photographed by Arthur Elgort.
On whether she considers herself a feminist: “That word can be very extreme…but I guess I am a modern-day feminist. I do believe in equality. Why do you have to choose what type of woman you are? Why do you have to label yourself anything? I’m just a woman and I love being a woman. I do believe in equality and that we have a way to go and it’s something that’s pushed aside and something that we have been conditioned to accept. But I’m happily married. I love my husband.”
Just once, we’d love to hear a celebrity, male or female, answer the question with “FUCK YEAH, I’m a feminist. Next?” No hedging, no rushing in to assure people that they don’t hate men; just a simple, declarative, “Yes, I am.”
We also wish we could fly, so there’s that.

We realize these garments are styled and clothes-pinned and photoshopped, like all clothes are in editorials, but she really is working the shit out of those looks and shaming the runway models who wore them first. That Jonathan Saunders skirt looks amazing on her.
