    Oh holy day, praise Beysus, and thanks be to Flaunt Magazine for bestowing upon us the Beyoncé editorial we've been dreaming of. Behold Beyhold, Queen B, glittering in all her glory. This is the most stripped-down we've ever seen her. Shot back in 2011, photographer Tony Duran managed to do the impossible and get a naked Bey to pose for his camera, but we'd like to stress that this isn't a nude shoot. It's tastefully conceptual, and despite the ostentatiousness of the glitter and body paint, it feels raw.

    Oh, and the accompanying interview isn't half bad either. Bey tackles everything from her favorite place to kiss, empowering the youth, to how fabulous Tyra Sanchez is (Ru Paul's Drag Race's Beyoncé-impersonating contestant).

    Why these glorious images were kept under wraps for two years is beyond us, but thank the pop music gods they're here. We're "Bowing Down," because that's what these hard-edged elegant photographs demand. (Flaunt)
