Beyonce is InStyle’s September 2011 issue cover girl.
The "Single Ladies" singer was photographed by Michelangelo Di Battista at Long Island’s Guggenheim mansion in New York City.
She looked simply radiant at the fashion magazine cover in a gold sequined and star-studded Dolce & Gabbana mini dress, neutral make-up and soft beachy waves.
The Queen of R&B told InStyle:
About her guilty pleasure: “In my free time, I prefer to do nothing but sit on the couch and watch TV. I have to confess that my guilty pleasure is Jersey Shore.”
About her friends: “I am a girl’s girl. Women who don’t have female friends scare me. I love my friends, and I love sitting with them and listening to their stories.”
About taking a break and focusing on her family: “I sacrificed so much as a kid and as a teenager. I have no regrets because my job kept me focused. When you’re young—18 or 19—you have the energy and drive. That’s the time to work as hard as you can. Now I’m a woman, and because I gave it my all, I can focus on my marriage. I can decide I want to have kids. I can be the mother I want to be and dedicate myself to my children.”
The issue hits newsstands August 19th.
