Though I had hoped Nicole would grace the cover alone, she has instead been featured alongside another worthy cover star: Danai Gurira of “The Walking Dead,” Alfre Woodard, who has been featured on a solo cover in the past, and surprisingly, LaVerne Cox of “Orange is the New Black.”
Essence is known to be quite stingy when it comes to who graces their magazine. Rather than feature new faces, the magazine is known to recycle the same celebs over and over again, often giving them multiple covers in the same year; so for Cox, a transsexual, to land a cover so quickly, is to say the least… interesting.
As for Nicole and Danai, both are gearing up for the return of their hit shows this fall. Beharie’s “Sleepy Hollow” returns on September 22, while “The Walking Dead” is set to return on October 12.
Above you can check out the cover, while inside photos will be posted as soon as my digital copy is available.
For all you “Sleepyheads, check out some new promo for the show released earlier today.
Pretty nice, don’t you think?
