Stunning! Janelle Monae, Lupita Nyong’o, & Aja Naomi King Cover ‘Vanity Fair’

Published: Thursday 26th Jan 2017 by Sam

Vanity Fair captures the media’s move towards increased diversity on their 2nd annual Hollywood Portfolio cover.

Stars, both established and rising, aligned for the striking shot which was lensed by Anne Leibovitz. 

Included is Janelle Monae, who has received rave reviews for her roles in ‘Hidden Figures’ and ‘Moonlight’ (both of which received several Oscar nominations).

Also featured is Lupita Nyong’o, whose recent film ‘The Queen Of Katwe’ was critically acclaimed.

We were also elated to spot Aja Naomi King. For, beyond her work on ‘How To Get Away With Murder,’ she’s still managing to shine through the darkness that encased ‘The Birth Of A Nation’ – which she starred in last year alongside Nate Parker.

Peep the ladies close up’s after the jump…
