Mother-Daughter duo Vanessa Williams & Jillian Hervey aka Lionbabe serves up some “Flawsomeness” to kick start 2017 with hair and beauty goals for Essence Magazine’s January Issue. It’s not hard to believe that Jillian would follow her in mother’s footsteps. Vanessa Williams is a double threat she can go from the stage to the big screen effortlessly. Both artists open up about their journey in and out of the spotlight. Here is a brief excerpt of the cover story by Cori Murray:

Williams, 53, and Hervey, 27, know fierceness runs in their family, but so does maintaining a strong work ethic and staying true to who you are at any age. These traits have served Williams well in her 30-plus year career, which survived being dethroned as Miss America in 1984 to becoming an award winning film, TV and Broadway actress and recording artist. Now television has come calling again—next spring she stars as an aging mean girl talk show host on VH1’s Daytime Divas.
