Representing the “Shape issue” is Beyonce, who has been photographed by Mario Testino for the April ’09 cover of Vogue. It’s the second time this year that Anna Wintour has chosen a black woman for the cover (Michelle Obama was the first for the March ’09 issue). With the headline “Real women have curves, Beyonce at her best”, it’s great to see the 27-year-old land the cover, but might I casually remind Ms Wintour that real women come in all wonderful shapes, and not solely of the curvy variety.

Here it is folks! The much-anticipated March ’09 Vogue cover starring Michelle Obama. It seems it was accidentally posted on WSJ’s fashion blog ahead of its launch tomorrow, and quickly picked up by Jezebel for our viewing pleasure (thanks peeps!). Photographed by Annie Leibovitz, there has been plenty of chatter already on forums about the portrait and of course the choice of outfit – a sleeveless fuchsia dress by Jason Wu.
