Beyonce Flaunt MagazineTony Duran for Flaunt

Beyoncé has covered her fair share of magazines (this one included!) but we guarantee you’ve never seen her like this before.

The megastar (and 2012 PEOPLE’s World’s Most Beautiful woman) strips down and glams up in a dazzling coat of body paint and some major makeup for the latest issue of Flaunt.

And just as surprising as that sultry, sparkling cover: The notorious perfectionist opens up to the mag about topics as varied as her drag queen impersonators and awesome sex scandals in history.

Want to know where you can find her and Jay-Z making out? “The Louvre, or under the Arc de Triomphe,” she shares. “Paris is a beautiful, sexy city.”

How about how to pack a picnic to get her in a romantic mood? “A cozy blanket, red wine, fruit, ’90s R&B playing on my iPod. I don’t think you need much else,” she says.

For more insight from Beyoncé, visit, and pick up the latest issue, on stands July 11, for even more jaw-dropping shots (the two below are just a small sample of what’s inside!).

Love The Photos!! She’s powerful!!

Ha ha Julie. I did. I was able to do it, just not as easily as I could have twenty years ago. Why isn’t this considered indecent exposure? She is naked, but simply covered with glitter. I’m from Vegas so believe me, this doesn’t shock me as I see this type of stuff ALL the time on cabs and billboards. What makes it truly indecent? Do the ni….ples have to be shown (not sure which words are allowed)?

Lol, making out in the art museum Louvre? Or in the middle of the traffic jam around the Arc de Triomphe? Seriously, Paris may be a romantic city but the spots mentioned are pretty weird for making out.

Perfectly fake. Sums up everything about her.

Katie on

Her hair looks like that copper looking sponge people sometimes use in their kitchen.

Helen on

Beyonce is one of the most beautiful women in the world….but…those are not her boobs.

Amy on

@NotSaidFred – That absolutely is her left hand. Put your hand behind your back and try it – unless you’re the least flexible person on the planet? Not EVERYTHING is photoshopped.

Good Tx Girl on

I say if you got it, flaunt it, and Bey’s got it alright.

Pam on

@Nana everywhere in Paris is a make out spot. That city is incredibly sexy. My Husband and I honeymooned there and we kissed in those places that she mentioned.
