I love Essence magazine and what it respresents to us as black women. My love for the magazine is why I constantly showcase it on this website despite the fact they are constantly recycling cover models. I would love it if they would feature some of these established as well as up and coming models on the cover such as Jourdan Dunn, Joan Smalls, Sessilee Lopez, and Chanel Iman. I mean we are constanly complaining about the fact that so-called mainstream magazines are not showcasing models of color, but yet magazines aimed at us are doing the exact same thing. Essence is supposed to be the trendsetter not the follower. Essence is a niche magazine that doesn't require it to always have celebrities on the cover in order to sale. I mean let's be honest they have the same five or six women on the cover anyway. I just want more from the magazine that I fell in love with when I was five years.
