From Rihanna & Beyonce on Vogue, to Lupita on the cover of Net-a-Porter’s Mag, here are all the cover girl pictures from glossy magazines we love
Cover girl inspiration oozed out of many magazine covers this month! Women of color especially rocked magazine covers this month and stunned in the most inspiring yet minimalistic way. But for Rihanna’s pencil-thin eyebrows and dramatic lip on the cover of British Vogue, most of the “sisters” opted for minimalistic looks. Maybe a little eyeshadow here and there and some lipstick, but nothing over the top.
Cover girls are expected to inspire and empower and these women delivered. Net-a-Porter’s cover girl for the month was our very own Lupita Nyong’o. Lupita discussed the need to change beauty standards for people of color especially when it comes to hair. The actress uses her cover girl platform to inspire kinky-haired people, especially children, to believe they are beautiful.
A valuable lesson on remembering where you come from
Funny girl Tiffany Haddish graced the cover of Glamour magazine as well. She discussed serving as a role model for underprivileged youth. Having been a part of the foster care system, Hardish talks about considering fostering kids herself. She revealed that she encourages fans to bring suitcases to her shows. These suitcases are then donated to foster children. Talk about not forgetting where you come from!
Meanwhile, Vogue India, cover girl Suhana Khan discussed the experience of growing up as a star kid. This was her first-ever magazine shoot but judging from the pictures, it’s hard to guess that. Interestingly, the 18-year-old dished out some insightful words about trolls. She acknowledged that trolls can mess with your self-confidence . However, to deal with it, she tells herself that other people have bigger problems. Such wise words from an 18-year-old.
In Africa too and Wakanda…
