Naomi, Liya, and Iman cover Essence’s 40th Anniversary Issue
By Claire

Trailblazing supermodels Naomi Campbell, Liya Kebede, and Iman cover Essence’s 40th Anniversary Issue:

The collector’s edition will do double duty as the magazine’s weighty September Fall Fashion issue, and will feature the first official spreads by Essence’s controversial fashion director, Elliana Placas.
Though it’s unknown if Elliana styled the cover, the fashion pages will undoubtedly receive lots of attention. Another thing to look forward to: an open letter by Michelle Obama to black women.
Will you be picking up Essence’s September Issue?

    This cover is beautiful. I’m glad I’m a subscriber. I am very curious about the fashion pages, however.

  4. i love it says:

    2 eastafrican ladehs on the covah, yay! and NAOMI my favorite model of all time.

    i live in the hague, too bad i didnt get to see ms campbell, but she looked untouchable on tv! go girl!

    I’m not loving the cover, Iman is the only one doing it for me. However, I love Essence and can’t wait to see what’s inside.

  6. rocks says:

    HHAHAHA

    I CANT BELIEVE CUSHITES ARE IN A BLACK MAGAZINE

    Cushites ARE NOT Black, scientifically proven

  7. rocks says:

    If White people arent featured in magazines like Essence, then why the hell Cushites are? they are as distinct racial group as Europeans are in relation to Black people

    Now, stop going off topic. Thxs

    Rocks, what planet do you live on? If you’re from Africa and African, you’re black point blank-period.

  13. Three of my fav BLACK models of all time (yeah Leah is black haters). I am sooo going to frame this cover, lol. Iman works upstairs from me so I get to see her and gossip with her assistant all the time, lol jealous bombers….? ;-)

  14. notbuyingit says:

    Uhm, being from Africa and being African don’t make you black…and I like all the women…but the text – why black men love you…makes me cringe…that sounds so desperate…

  16. esme says:

    @sunkissed- the afrikaners from south africa would describe themseleves as africans from africa, but they would never describe themselves as black, so i don’t know about that assertion.

    anyway i totally love this cover, three of my favorite black models, esp. liya kebede.

  17. artsylee says:

    I’m cool with Liya and Iman on this cover. Naomi on the other hand has a digusting personality and she’s a horrible person despite her fierceness and I just can’t see past this to her beauty. Her testimony at the war trial of Charles Taylor was the coup de grace for me.

    But hooray for Liya and Iman. They are both beautiful on the inside and out…

  18. LoudPen says:

    I like this cover. I won’t be buying the issue but I’m digging this fierce cover. And is it just me or has the “September issue” for fashion magazines become cliche?

  20. Love the other two says:

    Look at Naomi’s face–she’s had work, and not good work at that. Why doesn’t anyone mention this????
