"The LEGEND jumped out"

Beyoncé has reportedly been given "unprecedented control" over Vogue's September issue, according to a report from HuffPost.

According to sources who spoke with HuffPost, Beyoncé will have control over the cover, captions, and photographs of herself inside the issue. If that wasn't enough, Beyoncé also reportedly commissioned a young black photographer to shoot the cover, a first in the publication's 126 year history.

Needless to say, the internet is well and truly shook because the history making icon jumped out. The internet's reactions to Vogue reportedly offering Beyoncé this kind of control are as iconic as the news itself.

Predictably, people are pleased that Bey leveraged her influence to bring along young black talent. So, who is the 23-year-old reportedly set to become the magazine's first black cover photographer?

Who is Tyler Mitchell, Beyoncé's reported Vogue photographer?

According to his website, Tyler Mitchell is a 23-year-old New York based photographer. He has worked with publications like Dazed, Teen Vogue, and The FADER as well as brands like Mercedes Benz and Givenchy.
