From Rihanna’s second cover for Vogue Magazine to Octavia Spencer’s feature in ELLE Magazine, beautiful black celebrities are shining at the newsstands. The latest magazine editorials, featuring Solange Knowles and Oprah Winfrey, are no exception.
Solange Knowles is featured on the cover of ELLE South Africa‘s November 2012 issue. The singer, who collaborated with the magazine’s Fashion Director, Asanda Sizaniwas, on her wardrobe in the “Losing You” video, looks radiant. She wears a mixed print ensemble featuring a blouse and high-waist shorts, accented by red lips and a billowing curly afro. The yellow backdrop adds to the energy and verve of the cover, which names Solange as “Fashion’s New It Girl.”
Oprah Winfrey appears in the November 2012 issue of Harper’s Bazaar. Photographed by Terry Richardson, Oprah looks stunning in a white suit and black blouse and in another photo, a sharp red coat. In the issue, she opens up about growing as a person and taking the leap to form the OWN network.
