Style Reads: Taraji P. Henson is June Essence Cover Girl

 Essence is on the right path…

…For the moment. Maybe our complaints and gripes have finally been heard and it looks like Essence magazine has finally gotten the message: Variety is the spice of life.

The June issue is a drastic improvement, cover and content wise compared to the last several issues (April and May were great, February we really didn’t want to see Reggie “I Don’t Date Sistahs” Bush on the cover). As our only voice in glossy media for fashion, style, and beauty news, Essence will have to continue this formula if it is to withstand the era of social media.  It’s either change it up or go bust because black women have had it with the same old stories and same old stars. 

Taraji P. Henson shines on the cover in a OMO Norma Kamali swimsuit, a Susanna Galanis agate necklace, and Dannijo rings.  The most noteworthy fashion editorial in this issue, Soft Focus features America’s  Next Top Model runner-up (Cycle 3) Yaya in fashions of the blush variety, including a lavender Burberry trench coat, a really pretty J. Crew sequined silk dress and a draped beauty of a dress by Sophia Kokosalaki.

Divas is a celebration of our hottest female entertainers like Aretha Franklin, Chaka Khan, Tina Turner, and Diana Ross. Single Man of the Month Kwame Boachie-Adeji from New York is some good eye candy, and Daddy’s Home article is definitely worth a look.
