Jada Pinkett Smith is the cover girl for Essence magazine’s fall fashion issue. The brazen Hollywood beauty wears a gold form-fitting dress with a daring cutout, accessorized with tribal earrings and an embellished cuff.

We’re still drooling over the TwitPic of the 40-year-old mom’ s flawless bikini body, however, this glam shot reminds us that the actress, producer and writer often turns up the heat in sexy designer gowns.

Inside the issue, Jada addresses divorce rumors. Simply put, “Will and I are not getting a divorce,” says Jada, who would rather focus less on her family’s scrutiny and more on using her celebrity for a positive cause. 

As the newly appointed warrior against human trafficking, Jada says, “When something speaks to you as brightly as this particular issue speaks to me, you just put every resource that you have to move things forward. That’s what we do, we move fast. It’s the entertainment business. You have to move like a rocket. We’re talking about people’s lives.”
