We all got in trouble together, and we all went down together. We learned that from our mothers, watching them and how close they are. So, of course I'm going to be like that with other women. I don’t understand hating another woman. We go through so much as women. Why am I, another woman, going to add to the stresses that women already have? Why would I do that?" – @tarajiphenson and #foxybrown #pamgrier talk shop on their shared experiences playing formidable roles for women of color, executing death-defying stunts, and uniting women in entertainment.⠀ ⠀ Interview by Pam Grier , Photography by @alexandersaladrigas @ceruttiandco , Styling by @ronnie_hart , Hair by @tymwallacehair , Makeup by @ashuntasheriff @tmgpresents , Manicure by @honeynailz @exposureny using @debrorahlippman⠀ ⠀ Editor-in-Chief @marc.sifuentes, Creative Director @herecomeslouis , Associate Editor @benprice4real ⠀ ⠀ Special Thanks to @theplazahotel and Pamela Sharp of Sharp & Associates.⠀ ⠀ Jacket by @michaelkors, necklace by @marcjacobs, tights by @wolford #empire #proudmary #tarajiphenson #iriscovetbook #hairstyles #blackgirlmagic #queen

Not just in the industry, but in the world, because art imitates life. If we’re artists, then we need to be setting examples for the world. That’s how I was raised, that’s all I know." – @tarajiphenson and #foxybrown #pamgrier talk shop on their shared experiences playing formidable roles for women of color, executing death-defying stunts, and uniting women in entertainment.⠀ ⠀ Interview by Pam Grier , Photography by @alexandersaladrigas @ceruttiandco Styling by @ronnie_hart Hair by @tymwallacehair , Makeup by @ashuntasheriff @tmgpresents , Manicure by @honeynailz @exposureny using @debrorahlippman⠀ ⠀ Editor-in-Chief @marc.sifuentes, Creative Director @herecomeslouis , Associate Editor @benprice4real ⠀ ⠀ Special Thanks to @theplazahotel and Pamela Sharp of Sharp & Associates.⠀ ⠀ Jumpsuit by @dundasworld, Boa by @helmutlang, Earring by @ericksonbeamon, Shoes by @aquazzura @proudmarymovie @empirefox #tarajiphenson #iriscovetbook #empire #hiddenfigures #proudmary #diva #yasss #queen
