I'm surprised to find Bey on the cover. Too bad this wasn't the American version. We won't get into why it isn't...
I remember when women on the cover was non-existent, especially a woman of color.
I remember buying this issue. I still have it stored safely away in the basement.
Design-wise, it is interesting watching how GQ magazine made subtle changes in its layout, masthead, and typography.
Look at all 500+ covers till you're dizzy here.
