Jennifer Lopez and Taraji P Henson are Insanely Hot for W Magazine.
Jennifer Lopez and Tarji P. Henson prove that age truly ain’t nothing but a number as they dominate the latest cover of W Magazine. As if Jennifer Lopez and Taraji P. Henson on one magazine cover wasn’t enough, the issue actually includes a total of 5 cover stars. Joining J. Lo and Cookie is fashion priestess Donatella Versace legendary supermodel Kate Moss, and award winning actress Jessica Chastain. Lensed by fashion wonder boys Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott and styled by Fashion Director, Edward Enninful, this is one insanely hot cover story.
On the cover, the 5 women pose in a powerful group portrait styled in sexy all black Versace looks. Inside the issue each woman gets her own time in front of the camera.
For 47 year-old J. Lo’s closeup, the star serves up a double dose of ageless beauty styled in a gold bodysuit and insane Piaget diamond rings. She also sits down to chat with the mag about about everything from her age to men. “I have no patience for anything that’s not real,” she shared. “Just no bulls–t.” she continued. “Men in their 20s are very confident and cocky, and women are super insecure. And then it flips: Men get super insecure, and women get comfortable in their own skin, in a way that makes them more beautiful. I never appreciated my body or my looks when I was in my 20s. Now I’m like, Look at me! Look at you! Not in a conceited or arrogant way—I just appreciate myself in a way I didn’t when I was that age. And it’s not about perfection. I like the scars that I have.”
Taraji P. Henson channels her inner Cookie Lyon for her images. Styled in a black Lanvin mini-dress, Henson smolders in a glamorous beauty image. The scene is cinematic. A real parallel to to the life of 47 year-old Taraji P. Henson today who group up in a rough part of Washington D.C. The Hidden Figures actress also opens up and discusses everything from being a single mother to being considered a late bloomer. “This is the life I always saw for myself,” she says. “You have to see yourself inside the dream, you know? Why you gonna do something to fail? No, baby, that ain’t me! I always wanted to be one of the big dogs,” she adds.
Henson also comments on the current conditions for black women in film. “I don’t know. It’s been great for me! I own six properties, I’m out of the hood, and my son don’t know the hood.” she reflects. “Now, have they put all the zeroes on my check that I deserve? That’s the question, but not even for me because I don’t write the checks. I just keep working hard, knowing it will come.” she continues.
