With all of the #BlackGirlMagic that has conquered Hollywood lately, it was perfectly fitting to have some of the most talented Black actresses grace the cover of the annual Vanity Fair Hollywood issue.

Janelle Monae, Lupita Nyong’o, Aja Naomi King and Ruth Negga all stun on the cover. Covering the magazine’s annual Hollywood issue, that also features actresses Emma Stone, Natalie Portman and Amy Adams, the beautiful quartet of black women have starred in some of the most critically and financially successful films of 2016. Negga and Monae star in recent Academy Award-nominated films, which were announced earlier this week.

As The Root reports, the cover was shot by legendary photographer Annie Leibovitz and features each actress in a couture gown that harkens back to the days of old Hollywood glamour.

The cover is a notable change from many past Hollywood issues that failed to include much diversity. You can check out the Vanity Fair Hollywood issue when it hits newsstands on February 7th.
