Gabrielle Union Covers Essence Magazine for the Ninth Time
Gabrielle Union is the latest brown sista to land a November magazine cover. In addition to Nicki Minaj covering Maria Claire and Aja Naomi King and Lupita Nyong’o covering Elle, we have Gabby- who for the ninth time- is covering Essence magazine.
The Being Mary Jane actress has been a longtime favorite of the magazine since she graced her first cover back in March of 2005. If I am correct, only singer Mary J. Blige has been featured on the cover more times. A total of ten, I believe.
And while this isn’t my favorite cover image of the actress, her husband, Dwyane Wade, seems to be pretty impresses by it. He left a message under his wife’s photo on her Instagram page, saying “I hope you saved that rain coat. I’ve got plans for it.”
Look for Gabrielle’s cover to hit newsstands Friday, October 14th.
