Taraji P. Henson
Elle magazine's annual Women in TV issue hits newsstands on Jan. 13, and the stunning ladies featured might just be the most diverse group in a while. Though 2015's iteration featured Lena Dunham on its cover and only three women of color in the entire issue, this year's crop of cover stars include gorgeous women of color including How to Get Away With Murder's Viola Davis, Quantico's Priyanka Chopra, and Taraji P. Henson, who recently took home the Golden Globe for best actress in a TV drama and hilariously passed out cookies to the crowd in honor of her epic Empire character, Cookie Lyon. Also featured on their own covers are Veep's Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Olivia Wilde, who stars in HBO's Vinyl. In the issue, each star opened up about her breakthrough small-screen role and what it means to be a woman in the television world.
