26-year old singer Janelle Monae is the new beautiful face of CoverGirl! Her debut 10-page spread will be featured in Vogue’s September issue. Janelle is known for her signature black and white tuxedo look, and encourages all women to “use their beauty and strength to transform the world around them.”
The singer says:
“One of my core values is to help redefine what it means to be a strong and beautiful woman in the music and fashion worlds and to empower the wonderful things that make us unique. Becoming a CoverGirl is truly an honor and a gift: it opens up a new platform for me to inspire women to feel stronger, braver and more beautiful inside and out.”
Very genuine and empowering words, so make sure to pick up a copy of next month’s issue and congrats to Janelle on her new journey! Check out pics from the campaign after the jump.
