Kerry Washington for Vanity Fair August 2013!


Ok.  Listen up.
Everyone needs to go out and buy this magazine.  I don’t even care if you don’t read magazines…you need to make an exception this one time and buy this.
Let’s break this down…
For starters, Kerry Washington is a brilliant, talented goddess and if you aren’t already her fan…what are you waiting for?   Get to know her.  She’s amazing.
Second, Kerry Washington is a beautiful Black actress.
Third, Kerry Washingtin is a beautiful Black actress over the age of 35. 
It’s been 7 years since Vanity Fair had a woman of color on their cover.  7 years.  It’s incredible rare for major magazines to put a Black woman on the cover of their magazine. 
It’s incredibly rare for major magazines to put women over the age of 35 on the cover and not make their age an issue. 
 It’s UNHEARD of for major magazines to put BLACK WOMEN over the age of 35 on magazine covers.
Buy this magazine.  Show them it sells.  Show them you want to see more women over the age of 35 on major magazines.  Show them you want to see more BLACK women over the age of 35 on major magazine covers.  Show them you want to see more Black women PERIOD on the covers of major magazines.  Show them that diversity sells.
Plus, seriously…Kerry is amazing.  Buy her cover.  Put your money where your mouth is.  Also, Vanity Fair, for the most part, does a decent job of making these women look glamorous without being too overly sexualized.  This is a sexy picture, for sure.  But it’s not a degrading picture.  There is a difference.  Notice her mouth is closed and she’s engaged.   She is in a swimsuit but she’s not sexualized per se.  Support that kind of thing.
