Featured Article: Four Covers of Town & Country June 2019


Ava DuVernay, Melinda Gates, Christine Lagarde, and Yara Shahidi are the four cover stars of Town & Country’s Summer 2019 issue, on newsstands May 14th. These 4 female power houses come together as the “women who are changing the world” for the magazine’s annual Summer issue dedicated to Philanthropy.

46-year-old filmmaker Ava DuVernay is gearing up for the release of her latest Netflix project, “When They See Us” (premiering on May 31st). Here for T&C, she sheds lights on the brutalities of the criminal justice system and what she hopes audiences take away from the story of the exonerated Central Park Five men. The five men (Yusef Salaam, Antron McCray, Raymond Santana Jr., Kevin Richardson, and Korey Wise) are photographed here exclusively for the publication.

Yara Shahidi, currently starring in The Sun Is Also a Star (in theaters now), gets candid on activism and Instagram, love across borders, and more. Just in time for Mother’s Day (Sunday, May 12th) Shahidi is photographed alongside her mother, Keri Shahidi, who both speak about philanthropy as a family value.

Christine Lagarde is the first woman to hold the position of managing director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) which is an organisation of 189 countries with a lending capacity of $1 trillion. The 63-year-old executive opens up about female economic power and what gives her hope.

Melinda Gates, who’s recently released her first book, “The Moment of Lift,” was interviewed by John Legend and explains why she thinks it is time “that we have a woman as the leader of the country” and what she and her husband Bill Gates strive to achieve with their foundation.
