Bursting onto the fashion scene in the early 1990s, Cynthia Bailey has given us two gorgeous ESSENCE magazine covers, a film and her life as a cast member on "The Real Housewives of Atlanta." Now as we prepare to see Mrs. Peter Thomas at the ESSENCE Empowerment Experience on July 6-8 in New Orleans, let's take a look back at Cynthia's career.

Following a role in the 1990 Sandra Bernhard-led film “Without I’m Nothing” for which she beat out Naomi Campbell, Cynthia graced her first cover of ESSENCE magazine in June 1995. The supermodel was stunning in kohl-rimmed eyes and berry lipstick. This cover was personal validation that her move from her Southern hometown was a positive choice for her life and career as a thriving model.
