    The original cover isn’t really going to be in the corner like that, right?


    they all look amazing….all of them.

  • Mrs. Rance

    Wow, that is really gorgeous. This is the best idea Ebony has had in a while. I’m trying to decide which one I want for my little collection.

    I love them all, but can someone tell me who Mary is suppose to be? I didn’t recognize the original, and they didn’t have the name up either.

    • Jay Rock

      Diana Ross

    My bro got me a copy I haven’t had Essence Ebony or Jet in years
    While the covers look nice I wanted to see the new and improved version
    Ebony had me right in their corner until they opted to profile Diddy self indulgent White Parties
    Like that sh*t was something profound for our community lol

    If you put a mask and cape on Usher he would look like Handyman from in living color!
