This might be the fiercest fivesome to appear on a magazine cover in years. W Magazine chose wisely for their March 2017 cover.

Photographers Mert + Marcus snapped Jennifer Lopez, Donatella Versace, Jessica Chastain, Taraji P. Henson and Kate Moss in black ensembles for the publication’s celebration of powerful women. Each of these ladies exude confidence, power and beauty out of every talented pore. Check out more pics of the ladies below, along with quotes from the accompanying interview.

Jennifer Lopez On Her Figure

“I never appreciated my body or my looks when I was in my 20s. Now I’m like, Look at me! Look at you! Not in a conceited or arrogant way—I just appreciate myself in a way I didn’t when I was that age. And it’s not about perfection. I like the scars that I have.”

Taraji P. Henson On Her Success In Her 40s

“It’s supposed to be over for me at 46, but here I am. I’m a late bloomer, and I’m okay with that. Know why? Late bloomers last looong.”

Donatella Versace On The Power Of Fashion

“I only truly understood it recently, in the last five or six years. Before that I felt I had to produce the “right” kind of Versace collection. But now I am designing for a woman who works, who has children—or maybe she doesn’t work, but she definitely has power. The power to keep on going forward. I have to succeed in showing women that we can do more, that we are stronger than men.”
