    Ask and you shall receive. Thanks for the FYI.

  17. I am jacking that “Black don’t crack unless you’re on it” line.

    Beautiful cover. :iagree:

  18. Hmm same cover different people :noway: get some originality Essence DANG i love seeing my fellow sisters on a magazine cover but could you give each of them your cover? WHAT they don’ t deserve to grace the cover by themselves? WHATEVER

  19. They look stunning! Taraji really steals the photo tho…

    @ Voice: your grievance is unfounded. This is a regular article Essence runs yearly. The fact that they choose different people offers insight to how Essence listens to and understands its readers. Yes each of these women could definitely grace a cover by themselves; but the point is that they are each representing women of different ages, so calm down and stop hating on Essence.

    BEAUTIFUL cover ladies. :bowdown:

  21. Lady in the middle is gorgeos!

    Do i know you ? How do someone hate on a magazine?What was your point in that rant ?[because you made no sense to me]
    You have a problem with me expressing myself?

  23. Like the cover and the girls. It’s always interesting when celebrities talks about how they age and how they stay young. They never really tell you about the facials,botox, facelifts, etc…They always speak about eating healthy and exercising and laughing and…. That comment was not about these three ladies, just celebrities in general. Let’s face it, celebrities stay young cause they have access to every anti-aging products imaginable.

  25. “i love seeing my fellow sisters on a magazine cover but could you give each of them your cover? WHAT they don’ t deserve to grace the cover by themselves? WHATEVER”

    Child they are not mainstream enough to get their own covers don’ t you know that ? Smdh Beautiful cover but i am with voice, I hate hate hate when they put sisters together on a cover with a rushed interview like seriously don’ t they deserve to be on a cover by themselves? Whatev

    Iman has to be one of the most beautiful women Ive ever seen. I cant believe she’s in her 50′s. Serena is a little too masculine for my taste.

  27. SFC JONES, LENNON

    All beautiful women but what I’m confused about I guess I got to read the magazine is what do they have in common why these women but I am a huge Serena Williams fan I love her and her sister

  28. Beautiful photo…and choice of women.Wow…
