Elle Magazine’s interpretation of the Lord’s Prayer, “On Earth as it is in Heaven”, could not be a more fitting mantra for the digital age. With a rapturous growth in the cult following of the picture box in our living rooms, the magazine celebrated TV fanaticism in their February 2017 issue with some of 2016’s favourite characters and 2017’s most anticipated performances. We were excited to see the most amazing bevy of powerhouse women gracing the pages of Elle (with a couple token men thrown in). It’s the kind of religiosity ThandieKay can’t help wanting to be a part of, hence, the repost. Not to mention that our very own Thandie Newtown is featured, alongside her Westworld co-star Evan Rachel Wood.
Check out the spread here:
