While Italian Vogue may have paid homage to black beauty this month, Ebony magazine would like you all to know that they do it on the regular, 24 hours a day and seven days a week.
This month, the magazine pays tribute to eight different black men (Barack Obama, Prince, Denzel Washington, Billy Dee Williams, Jay-Z, Marvin Gaye, Muhammad Ali) by giving them each a cover for its July issue.
Inside the issue, the mag counts down its 25 coolest brothers of all-time. As the mag says:
"These brothers radiate confidence and have an alluring charisma that sets the standard. From their sleek, debonair styles to their smooth-as-silk personas, these magnificent Black men have conveyed, captured and conquered the quintessence of “cool” while making it appear effortless."
So the next time you're at the news stand hustling for four issue with Sessilee's, Jourdan's, Naomi's, and Liya's face on them check out the current issue of Ebony. It too explores the issue of black beauty and the varying shades and forms it comes in.
