Mary J. Blige covers Ebony looking fly as usual. The singer is a visual treat in this figure-hugging, leopard-print dress with giant chandelier earrings. We love that elegant blond swoop, which reaches back to a fabulous bun.
The shoot took place in Hollywood with legendary photographer Mark Baptiste. In a behind-the-scenes video, the photog reminisced over previous projects with the superstar. “We’ve done some beautiful collaborations over the years. It’s like family. You get together and create beautiful imagery.”
Mary J. wears a number of chic ensembles, including a high-shouldered white dress that looks insane with its display of her curves. “To me, it’s about capturing a moment and the beauty of a woman,” Baptiste says while photographing the singer.
The issue is on newsstands now.
