With several runway shows and magazine covers becoming more inclusive when it comes to body positivity, it seems that there are still people who are questioning this movement. There also some who are calling it a form of “white feminism” because of the abundance of white women being featured in these platforms.
But amid all that, Ebony, a magazine dedicated to women of color,decided to feature four plus-size women on its latest issue to hopefully break that stereotype.
The cover includes Orange Is the New Black actress Danielle Brooks, fashion blogger and designer Gabi Gregg, and singers Jazmine Sullivan and Chrisette Michele where they’re dressed in military uniforms, most likely inspired by Beyoncé’s song “Formation.” According to Bustle, the cover story will tackle “plus-size image battles,” as well as “unfiltered” interviews with the cover girls.
Speaking of “unfiltered,” the cover also seems to be minimally edited to show the realness of these women. Gabi also tweeted a behind-the-scenes photo of the four of them, and it doesn’t look too far from the final shots.
