Cynthia Bailey is undeniably beautiful.
The “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star showcased her good looks this weekend in a stunning selfie. She was tagged by fellow costar Eva Marcille to join in on the “We are Black Women” challenge to take up the fight against racism and police abuse of African-Americans.
“I accept @evamarcille 🌻,” Bailey, 53, wrote via Instagram on Saturday, June 6, with a photo of herself to accompany a meme sweeping the internet. “We are BLACK WOMEN! We build.. We don’t tear down other BLACK WOMEN!! We have felt the pain of being torn down and have decided that we will be deliberate about building others! Far too often, us women find it easier to criticize each other instead of building each other up. With all of the negativity going around, let’s do something positive!”
The model’s image showed her wearing an ornate bib necklace over a velvet maroon garment and an eye shadow look that complemented her wear. She also wore her hair in light brown curls to pull together her gorgeous glam shot.
Bailey’s fans went wild over her photo and remarked about how gorgeous she looked. “Werk Sis!!! Just stop it with those fantastic cheekbones!!! Gorgeous!!! 😘” one fan exclaimed. Another wrote, “This face! 😍🔥The Most Beautifulest Person I know !!♥️ Breathtaking.” A third wrote, “Gawjus! N looking fresh.” Someone else commented, “Gorgeous Miss Bailey. I love you 🖤💋 Beautiful picture! Colorful and Stunning.”
At the age of 18, Bailey moved to New York City from her hometown Tuscumbia, Alabama, to pursue her modeling career.
She landed a contract with Wilhelmina Models and began modeling for various magazines, including Vanity Fair, Vogue, Glamour, Essence, and many more. Last month, Bailey backed up her fellow modeling alum Tyra Banks after Banks received backlash for her former “Top Model” critiques.
“I love Tyra,” the mother of one told Page Six. “We actually came up together, and I’ve always had a lot of respect for her and still do. I think some of the things she said to the models could’ve been taken out of context, but one thing I know about Tyra is she’s definitely a pioneer in this industry.”
Bailey put her modeling career on the back burner when she joined the “RHOA” cast in 2010 with ex-husband Peter Thomas. She currently stars on the show and is apparently one of fan favorites on the Bravo series.
