Beyoncé’s Vogue cover, 2018
It shouldn’t come as a surprise to find Beyoncé on this list of iconic photos – after all, she’s one of the most successful singers in the country. The Queen of Pop is considered one of the most influential artists in history. While every person in the country must be familiar with the singer, it’s hard to determine she has just one iconic photo with which she’s recognized.
Some people say Beyoncé’s 2018 Vogue cover is her most iconic photo. In the photo, the singer is wearing a floral headpiece, an ivory gown by Gucci and minimal makeup – to emphasize her natural beauty – in a shot that captures the eye and the heart. What makes the photo historic, however, is the person who was standing behind the camera – this is the first cover photo that was taken by an African-American photographer.
