Mary J. Blige is bringing all the heat this fall season. The award-winning singer and actress gave us chills with the covers of both Health Magazine and Cultured Magazine.
For the October issue of Health Magazine, Mary poses in a nude top, matching skirt, and her signature platinum blonde tresses. At age 49, she is serving looks like none other. Throughout most of the shoot, Mary shows that she’s fall ready in rich browns, burnt oranges, and muted yellow colors.

Besides serving fashion goals, Mary dropped some gems during her interview. “Self-love is the hardest thing to feel because we live in a world where everybody is hurting,” Mary told the magazine. “Until you get satisfied with who you are, other people won’t ever be satisfied. That’s the growing process.”

Who but Queen @therealmaryjblige could inaugurate the launch of our second annual #CulturedLivingLegends issue? The singer, songwriter, actress, producer and newly-minted wine entrepreneur represents the resilient and innovative spirit that has come to shape our conception of what it means to be a legend. In a season overshadowed by uncertainty and loss, we found ourselves attracted to individuals like @therealmaryjblige, who have embraced life’s challenges through constant reinvention, but without losing the beat of their own intuition. “At the end of the day, it doesn't matter what your status is, we have been broken down to understand that we are all in this together and we should never look down our nose at anybody or say that we’re better than anyone just because we have more money or we have more this, because COVID is the great equalizer,” Blige tells @marjon_carlos.

If you thought Mary killed her spread with Health, wait until you see what she did on the cover of Cultured Magazine. The cover shot features the Queen of Hip Hop and R&B draped in a gold Balmain gown, with thigh-high boots, and a gorgeous jeweled crown on her head.
In another shot, Mary looked fierce in knee-length blonde braids, an oversized fur coat, and an elaborate gold choker.
Mary’s sense of style has always been iconic. Since the 90’s, she’s been giving us a mixture of high-fashion looks with urban flare. This fall, we’ll get to see her legendary style play out on the big screen in the Power spinoff, Power Book II: Ghost.
Both covers basically say, “I’m still the Queen.” Here for it! What are your thoughts? Are you feelin’ the Health and Cultured Magazine covers?
