Purely stunning. Erykah Badu is just one woman of fabulosity that covers Essence magazine's beauty issue. But she is my favorite. Solange Knowles also graces the May issue. The ecelctic pop singer shares her beauty regimen in staying young and looking, as her sister Beyonce says, flawless. Lastly, RnB singer Ledisi is glowing on her cover. I love and appreciate that these three women not only fall into their own category of individuality, but their hair and look is natural. Sometimes little girls, and women, need to be reminded that it is okay to embrace your roots. Thank you, Essence.
