Beyonce has posed for her raciest cover yet, appearing unclothed, covered by only a liberal coating of bronze glitter.
The daring editorial appeared in the relaunch issue of Flaunt magazine, an American fashion and culture publication known for its slightly alternative content.
Shot by photographer Tony Duran in 2011 as part of Beyonce’s Year of 4 album campaign, the resurfaced images showcase the singer’s famous curves, and leave little to the imagination.
In a head and shoulders shot that shows her slicked back hair, the star is almost unrecognisable. Who knew she could look so different minus her trademark long locks?
In the accompanying interview, Beyonce responds to questions about her status as a gay icon and shares tidbits about her likes and dislikes.
And while the nude cover certainly seems to indicate that she is anything but shy, Beyonce reveals she has certain limits when it comes to opening up to the public.
"I have chosen to keep certain aspects of my life private," she said. "But I also love sharing what makes me happy, especially through photography."
The star is sure to make fans happy with the sultry shots that run within the pages of the mag, which include a full-body image of a glitter-covered Beyonce seductively stretched across the floor, as well as a series featuring streaks of body paint smeared across her bare body.
Of course this isn’t the first time Beyonce has turned heads with her daring style.
