Between the Women’s March and this new Hollywood Issue of Vanity Fair, we are experiencing all of the Girl Power feels. This cover screams, “I am woman. Hear me roar!” and we can’t help but love it. This is the second year that the fabulous publication has celebrated some of the most powerful and talented women in the film industry. This year’s line-up is more diverse and our souls are so happy. Every cover needs black girl magic and we are so happy to see Lupita Nyong’o, Aja Naomi King, and Janelle Monáe plastered across this spread.
