There were a serious lack of magazine covers featuring Beyoncé‘s gorgeous mug last year. But thanks to GQ, we’ve got the very first one of 2013, and it is hottt.
On the purported cover, Bey wears a cropped athletic tee (no doubt a nod to her upcoming Super Bowl halftime performance), red leopard undies with (unnecessary) zipper detailing, a thick gold chain, and a delicate body chain. Tousled waves and a smokey eye complete the seriously sexy look.
Beyoncé is wearing a lot less clothes than we’re using to seeing her in lately, but then again, this is a men’s magazine, and the February issue includes a list of the “100 Sexiest Women Of The 21st Century”, which we’re sure Queen B tops. We’ll just have to wait for her rumored Vogue cover to see her in some fashions.
On a semi-related note: Bey has also been confirmed to sing the national anthem at President Obama‘s second inauguration on January 21. Yesss! Alright, now go take a look at a sneak peek of the GQ cover here.
Update: GQ has finally released the official image! Without further ado, here is Bey’s Terry Richardson-lensed cover:
