Yes Queen Bey!!! Beyonce not only made the cut for ‘Time’s’ prestigious 100 Most Influential People issue, but she even rocked the cover! As far as we’re concerned, everyone can just bow down to the queen. Congrats Bey!
From wearing Mama Knowles’ originals in the “Say My Name” days, to booty popping on the “Crazy in Love” video, to teaching fellas to “Put a ring on it” to — drumroll please — Time! That’s right, Beyonce is on the cover of Time‘s 100 Most Influential People 2014 issue — so basically she didn’t just make the cut, she is the star of the show. And as you can imagine, an influential person has NEVER looked so good.
Beyonce Sparkles On ‘Time’ Cover
Hotness has officially come to Time in the form of none other than Bey. The superstar, 32, absolutely rocks the iconic cover with cool fashion and absolutely stunning beauty.
Wearing what looks like an old-school 1950s bikini made up of white high-waisted bottoms and a matching halter top with a sheer t-shirt layered over it, music’s reigning queen looks super fly in the black and white cover photo. Her hair is stuck straight with a very blonde ombre that falls naturally, slightly windblown on either side of her body. Her eyebrows are extra thick and dark and other than that it’s all natural for this beauty.
I really can’t spot a stitch of makeup! Just flawless skin from her forehead to her thighs where the pic cuts off. Even her manicure is au naturel and flawless.
Speaking of flawless, don’t miss the left inner thigh muscle taking center stage. Werk!
Inside the issue, writer Sheryl Sandberg explains why Bey deserves to be a Time cover girl. “Beyonce doesn’t just sit at the table. She builds a better one,” Sheryl pens. “Her secret: hard work, honesty and authenticity. And her answer to the question, ‘What would you do if you weren’t afraid?’ appears to be ‘Watch me. I’m about to do it.’ Then she adds, ‘You can, too.'”
‘Time’s’ 100 Most Influential People
While I find it hard to focus on anyone else when I could just be staring at Bey, the queen is in good company when it comes to the list this year.
Fellow “most influential” peeps include Robert Redford, Steve McQueen, Kerry Washington, Amy Adams, Miley Cyrus, Brit hottie Benedict Cumberbatch and OITNB creator, Jenji Kohan.
Congratulations to all, and a special shoutout to Time for the best cover ever. And of course, all hail Queen Bey.
