Now, BV Buzz has obtained an exclusive preview of a magazine, titled FEARLESS, which was not necessarily inspired by Vanity Fair's negligent blackout, but the issue certainly motivated the publisher to get the ball rolling.
"The idea to put a group of young women on the cover was thought of long before the year's Vanity Fair controversy, but after it happened, our editorial board thought it was a great opportunity to celebrate women of color who are actresses in young Hollywood," said Arian Simone, the magazine's editorial director.
On its debut issue, FEARLESS features young Hollywood ingénues Tia Mowry ('The Game'), Lauren London ('This Christmas'), Naturi Naughton ('Notorious'), Monique Coleman ('High School Musical'), Jennifer Freeman ( 'My Wife & Kids'), Kyla Pratt ('One on One'), Tiffany Hines ('Nikita') and Chyna Layne ('Precious').
In addition to the new glossy being available nationally on newsstands soon, FEARLESS will also be available in a digital format, accessible on both iPhones and iPads.
