Beyoncé proves once again that she can be “pulled and poetic” at the same damn time!  The multi-Grammy winning entertainer taps into her inner spirit for a fierce new fashion spread for CR’s Fashion Book Issue 5. The recent MTV Michael Jackson Vanguard Award recipient poses flawlessly for the camera with photos taken by Pierre Debusschere and creative direction from Riccardo Tisci. Check out the images below along with beautiful words pulled from Bey’s poetry where she pays homage to her daughter, Blue Ivy and her late grandmother.

 “You call me a singer, but I’m called to transform, to suck up the grief, anxiety, and loss of those who hear me into my song’s form.”
