Ciara Joins Iman & Teyana Taylor As 'Essence' Mag Cover Stars

Ciara, Iman and Teyana Taylor are the cover stars of Essence‘s July/August issues, available now.

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

Ciara on becoming resilient: “The biggest thing for me has been understanding how important patience is…My faith has carried me through every challenge and triumph. When I was younger and wanting things to happen when I wanted them to happen. I could never have imagined that 15 years later I’d be having the time of my life.”

Iman on David Bowie encouraging her to launch her cosmetics line: “He literally did not understand fear. He was in my corner cheering me on every step of the way. If it wasn’t for him, I would never have done it.”

Teyana on showing real love with husband Iman Shupert: “I don’t want my supporters to feel like we’re untouchable. I don’t want y’all to think we’re Perfect Pattys, because that’s just not real. I think sometimes it takes other couples to see like, ‘Damn, they were able to talk and get through it. That’s inspirational…’”
