To back her choice up, she said: "Until there is a mosaic of perspectives coming from different ethnicities behind the lens, we will continue to have a narrow approach and view of what the world actually looks like."

"That is why I wanted to work with this brilliant 23-year-old photographer Tyler Mitchell."

"When I first started, 21 years ago, I was told that it was hard for me to get onto covers of magazines because black people did not sell."

"Clearly that has been proven a myth. Not only is an African American on the cover of the most important month for Vogue, this is the first ever Vogue cover shot by an African American photographer."

"It’s important to me that I help open doors for younger artists. There are so many cultural and societal barriers to entry that I like to do what I can to level the playing field, to present a different point of view for people who may feel like their voices don’t matter."

"Imagine if someone hadn’t given a chance to the brilliant women who came before me: Josephine Baker, Nina Simone, Eartha Kitt, Aretha Franklin, Tina Turner, Diana Ross, Whitney Houston, and the list goes on."

"They opened the doors for me, and I pray that I’m doing all I can to open doors for the next generation of talents."

"If people in powerful positions continue to hire and cast only people who look like them, sound like them, come from the same neighborhoods they grew up in, they will never have a greater understanding of experiences different from their own."

"They will hire the same models, curate the same art, cast the same actors over and over again, and we will all lose. The beauty of social media is it’s completely democratic."

"Everyone has a say. Everyone’s voice counts, and everyone has a chance to paint the world from their own perspective."

Tyler Mitchell - the photographer

Tyler Mitchell talked about how it is to meet Beyonce in person saying: "When she sat down for me there was immediately the kind of comfort level you’d have with a friend, which was quite unexpected,"

"You’d imagine someone as famous as Beyoncé to be protective of her image, but she was really an open book—and that’s exactly what you want as a photographer."

Rihanna on the cover of British Vogue

Beyonce however, was not the only one who made history this! Rihanna also made history by being the first black woman to be on the cover of British Vogue.

The editor-in-chief of the magazine says: "I always knew it had to be Rihanna. A fearless music-industry icon and businesswoman, when it comes to that potent mix of fashion and celebrity, nobody does it quite like her."
