GabiFresh, Danielle Brooks, Jazmine Sullivan And Chrisette Michele Cover Ebony's March 2016 Issue

Gabi Fresh, Danielle Brooks, Jazmine Sullivan and Chrisette Michele get in formation for the glossy.

OK, OK, ladies, get in formation, 'cause you SLAY.

Ebony magazine has enlisted four women of colour to star on their March 2016 cover, and we have to say it's badass and beautiful.

"The Body Brigade" cover features blogger Gabi Gregg (a.k.a GabiFresh), "Orange Is The New Black" star Danielle Brooks and singers Jazmine Sullivan and Chrisette Michele, all donning military-inspired garb that shows off their curvy bodies beautifully.

Inside the issue, the four women speak on body image, Black women and self-acceptance, and all of them have powerful quotes emblazoned on the cover.

"I'm OK with being seen as big," says Gabi Fresh.

"I'm way more than the physical," Charlotte adds.

I did not come to play with you.... #Unedited #Formation 💋🔥

And as Refinery29 notes, the cover has kept each of the women's skin complexions in tact, something that several mainstream magazines have received backlash for failing to do the same.

We say, this one's a win, Ebony.
