The 'Crazy In Love' singer speaks about her image during a new photoshoot with Vogue magazine.

Beyonce has opened up about her new-found confidence with her body since giving birth to daughter Blue Ivy last year.

The 'Love On Top' singer welcomed her first child with husband Jay-Z over a year ago and told the March edition of US Vogue magazine that she now has a greater understanding of her figure.

"Right now, after giving birth, I really understand the power of my body," she told the publication. "I just feel my body means something completely different."

She continued: "I feel a lot more confident about it. Even being heavier, thinner, whatever. I feel a lot more like a woman; more feminine, more sensual. And no shame."

The Destiny's Child singer's cover shoot comes fresh from her win at this past weekend's Grammy Awards.

Last month, Beyonce also confirmed that she has teamed up with the 'SexyBack' star on her forthcoming new album.

"We had dinners with the producers every day, like a family," she explained of her team-ups on the latest record.

"It was like a camp — weekends off," she added. "You could go and jump in the pool and ride bikes ... the ocean and grass and sunshine. ... It was really a safe place."

The 'Countdown' star is also set to debut her new documentary feature later this month - which features intimate footage from her personal family life.

The film will premiere on HBO on 16th February.

The March issue hits newsstands nationwide on 19th February. and is available now.
