The recording artist, and now actress in hit film Dreamgirls, graces the coveted cover of Sports Illustrated annual swimsuit issue, in a teeny yellow-and-pink bikini made by her designer mother Tina Knowles.
The sensational pictures below show Beyonce: ‘The Dreamgirl As You’ve Never Seen Her’.
The 25-year-old singer-actress (‘Dreamgirls’) dropped 20 pounds on a liquid diet for her role in the film, but these pictures show she has lost none of her bootiliciousness, as she poses seductively on a Florida beach in the bikini designed by House of Dereon, the fashion label she started with her mother.
It’s a somewhat controversial move as unlike other magazines which feature more and more celebrities on their cover, Sports Illustrated is seen as one of the most important models only covers, Heidi, Tyra, Petra and Elle have all featured in previous years.
The 2007 swimsuit edition continues with a music theme inside, featuring scantily clad models posing with Kanye West, Aerosmith, Renee Zellweger’s ex-husband Kenny Chesney, and Gnarls Barkley.
