Vanity Fair magazine’s ’16 Tinseltown cover is sweet. Kudos to VF for their timing of this age (and shade) bending display. This season’s cover girls span generations, ethnicities, and cultures.

Dressed in black, two-time Oscar winners Jane Fonda, 78, and Cate Blanchett, 46, along with Viola Davis, 50, Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence, 25, Charlotte Rampling, 69, Oscar winners Brie Larspn, 26, Rachel Weisz, 45, and Lupita Nyong’o, 32, Alicia Vikander, 27, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, 32, Oscar winner Helen Mirren, 70, Saoirse Ronan, 21, and Oscar winner Diane Keaton, 70, look regal for the 22nd edition of the publication’s annual Hollywood special.

The two-time SAG Award winner Davis commented at this year’s Award show that the issue of diversity is not a trending topic, but this colorful edition of Vanity Fair is sure to be trending high on most lists.

These brown sisters are a triple threat and they look fab. Davis even copped a spot in the main view of the cover. Their résumés boast of powerhouse films like Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens, the most popular film franchise in the world that’s approaching a milestone as the third film in cinematic history to reach $2 billion in box office sales and leading roles in Belle, Concussion and Eat, Pray, Love.

You get no argument from me; these ladies are members of a very exclusive club and they have a class picture to prove it.
