The Beauty of Retrospect: Cynthia Bailey

I revisit a model I've featured before with two astonishing photos. 

When I first saw the picture below on the cover of a magazine - specifically, the June 1995 edition of Essence - I was breathless, speechless, and all that other incredible stuff you feel when confronted with the image of a woman who's beyond beautiful. :-)

The woman in question is Cynthia Bailey, an Alabama native who took the modeling world by storm in the nineties. This cover photo made the June 1995 issue of Essence one of the hottest-selling issues of the magazine in its entire history.

In addition to several editorial assignments, Cynthia Bailey has done ads for Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, Lord & Taylor, and too many other clients to list.

And if you think she looked gorgeous in 1995, you should see how she looks in 2011 - just look at the next picture!

She currently appears on a reality show, "Real Housewives of Atlanta," and she lives in Georgia's capital with her daughter Noelle.
