The 23-year-old beauty rocked the heck out of the December 2019/January 2020 issue of Cosmopolitan Magazine. Rocking a pink peek-a-boo leather Jonathan Simkhai top and skirt, along with a pair of Established “Baby girl” nameplate earrings, the Atlanta native gave us nothing short of around-the-way pop music princess.

Mary J. Blige continued her “bad b***h fall” domination!

The Grammy-winning singer and Oscar nominee stunned on the November digital issue of SELF Magazine rocking a white and black Chromat bodysuit, Alain Mikli sunglasses and Aquazurra netted booties.

Rihanna shut down 2019, not just with her uber-popular Fenty line, but by gracing the November 2019 cover of Vogue. The 31-year-old looked absolutely stunning.

Rocking a tan Fenty tulle coat and a full-face of her Fenty makeup line (we’d expect nothing less), the Grammy winner glowed in her 6th — yes 6th — Vogue cover!

8. Coco Gauff on Teen Vogue
