Hello Glamazonians! Sorry I’ve been M.I.A these past few days, blame the summer classes I’m taking. I checked my email yesterday and a lovely reader said to me, “I’m surprised you haven’t blogged about Kerry Washington‘s Vanity Fair cover photos yet, knowing how much you love to blog about her. I know you’ll have a ton to say, so I’m waiting patiently.” Trust me love, the minute I saw those photos I momentarily lost my mind. Not only because of KW’s stunning cover photo, but because I found out that Vanity Fair hasn’t had a black woman on the cover in SIX YEARS! Seriously, I don’t make this stuff up! Not even typical magazine cover staples like Beyoncé, Rihanna and Halle Berry. The print industry has this stigma, this mentality, that having black women on the cover of magazines can’t and won’t sell as many issues as having women of other races. Back to Queen Kerry. After her amazingly fierce ELLE Magazine photos, and now Vanity Fair, I expect Marie Claire, Rolling Stone and of course the fashion bible, Vogue, to be knocking on her door. Make it happen Anna Wintour, we know you love Scandal too. It’s about time that more people are taking note of her powerhouse talent. College graduate(George Washington University), political and social advocate and a great role model to boot, this woman is here to stay, Hollywood, now grant her the cover of VOGUE!
SO BUY THE COVER GLAMAZONIANS. BUY IT, BUY IT, BUY IT GLAMS! CLICK HERE TO SEE THE REST OF THE PHOTOSHOOT.
