Same photo, different magazines, many years later

This is Beyonce on the cover of 2011 April edition of British Cosmopolitan Magazine

Same picture on the cover of the 2005 September edition of Vanity Fair magazine.
The only difference is that Beyonce's complexion is a little lighter in the Vanity Fair cover.

    why use the same photo for different magazine covers? i had no idea that things like that happened. i thought everyone did a cover shoot for a specific magazine.
    so they just take a random photo of hers and slap it on there to sell to people?

    Déjà vu! I'm sure they intentionally photoshopped it to make her look darker because of all the rage about her complexion recently.
    Abike, thanks for saying it. Missed your posts. Linda, i did so much work at work this week because you were MIA. I'm sure my company must have loved me this week. Lol!

    I don't get it, why r ppl complaining. Isn't the content of the magazine what's important, and not the picture on the cover of it.

    If you go through the history of Rolling Stone magazine you'd realise that its very few times a new photoshoot is done. Most times they just take from the photographer's or their own collection and slap it on the cover of the mag.
