Glamour magazine, my favorite go-to publication for looking at fashion faux pas and the black boxes that cover their eyes, has managed to get some of Hollywood’s hottest talent to pose as some of this country’s most iconic women. Paula Patton as Billie Holiday is not such a stretch, but imagining Paula embodying a heroin-addled Jazz singer of otherworldly talent is.
But before I get ahead of myself, these are just pictures. So it is kind of dope to see model Chanel Iman as Althea Gibson giving her best volleying face, although we’re going to imagine that Venus or Serena Williams were too busy being their cute selves to pose for anything related to an icon in their chosen career. That being said, I’m going to leave Alicia Keys‘ photo of her portraying Michelle Obama alone because she does look much classier than Tyra Banks‘ attempt last year. All in all, the ladies look lovely and for the sake of Women’s History Month, I’ll try my hardest to leave the snark out of this post. Instead, let’s give it up to all of our great female icons past and present. [H/T:TB]
