It’s only fitting that Banks land the cover once again as she was the first black woman to ever be on the cover of the magazine solo in 1997. This is Banks’ third time on the cover. During an appearance on Good Morning America , where she revealed the cover, Banks expressed her excitement saying, “My first one was 23 years ago. How crazy is that? I broke ground [as] the first black woman on the cover.”
