Welcome back to another edition of FishbowlNY’s Cover Battle. This week we have Essence versus Billboard. Kerry Washington is featured on the latest Essence cover wearing a bright, gold dress that no other person could pull off. Rocking that dress is the ultimate trump card. If Washington ever encounters someone criticizing her outfit she can shoot back, “I wore that gold dress on Essence’s cover and looked amazing, so what were you saying?”
For its latest cover, Billboard got Katy Perry baked and then photographed her. Not a bad strategy.
So readers, which cover is better? You can vote, comment, or do both.
