There’s no denying that Cynthia Bailey is a gorgeous woman, and it clear that she’s only getting better with age!


The 47-year-old Real Housewives of Atlanta star posted a photo of herself on the cover of Essence magazine to Instagram, and it’s clear that not much has changed for her in the looks department over the 19 years since the cover was shot.

“This was my first @essencemag cover. It was shot in 1995. It literally flew off the newsstands & was one of their highest selling covers! June 2015 will be the 20 year anniversary,” writes Cynthia.

With the exception of the sleek, straight locks she sports today, it hardly looks like any time has passed since the photo was taken, with Cynthia’s flawless skin and graceful beauty defying time.

“This cover was very instrumental in making my modeling career hugely successful,” she adds. “I am forever grateful to @essencemag for their love & support! I can't believe that I have been a part of the@essencemag family for 20 years! Never forget the people who believed in you & saw the vision even before you did. I am so honored & proud to represent Essence.”

What do you think of Cynthia’s Essence cover? Are you surprised at how little her looks have changed over the years?
