Beyoncé's latest glossy conquer is the Spring/Summer issue of U.K. magazine The Gentlewoman, and in it, the 31-year-old flawless beauty talks about her business strategy and taking the reigns when it comes to her empire. And she has every intention on passing the knowledge down to her daughter, Blue Ivy.

"I'm controlling my content, controlling my brand and archiving it for my daughter and making sure she has it and she respects it but there's not enough of us that become moguls. And I think there are many ways to get there."

Bey also named Madonna as one of her pop idols with the business know-how to make her brand flourish. The Gentlewoman magazine spotlights strong women and the singer's chic fashion spread, photographed by Alasdair McLellan, is full of fierce poses, power outfits and barely there makeup. In the black-and-white cover photo, Bey wears a black cashmere sweater and white floral skirt, both by Dior, with a sleek ponytail. In another look, she rocks a white pleated dress by Alaïa that fits her like a glove.

If you can't wait to grab a copy of the magazine to peek at her fashion looks for the issue, Bey went ahead and uploaded the photos to her Tumblr.
