'W' Magazine's March Cover Celebrates These 5 Powerful Women!

Taraji P. Henson, Jennifer Lopez, Jessica Chastain, Kate Moss and Donatella Versace are on the cover of W magazine’s March 2017 issue, celebrating powerful women!

Here’s what the women had to share with the mag:

Taraji, on still being around in her 40s: “It’s supposed to be over for me at 46, but here I am. I’m a late bloomer, and I’m okay with that. Know why? Late bloomers last looong.”

Jennifer, on her fab figure: “I never appreciated my body or my looks when I was in my 20s. Now I’m like, Look at me! Look at you! Not in a conceited or arrogant way—I just appreciate myself in a way I didn’t when I was that age. And it’s not about perfection. I like the scars that I have.”

Donatella, on the power of fashion: “I only truly understood it recently, in the last five or six years. Before that I felt I had to produce the “right” kind of Versace collection. But now I am designing for a woman who works, who has children—or maybe she doesn’t work, but she definitely has power. The power to keep on going forward. I have to succeed in showing women that we can do more, that we are stronger than men.”
