And the inside feature itself, packed with unusual images of our favorite communications officer.
I love the candid in-costume images of Nichelle in the article, and especially below, as she gracefully brightens the set with her shape and smile. Look at the one of her standing between the wardrobe mistress and stylist, who helped create her onscreen image. Isn't she gorgeous? And the one on the bike... be still, my beating heart! It's not good for you to get so worked up.
Note the above ad for the "lighter, brighter skin" product. Then, as now, it seems that the societal pressure to conform to a certain image drives people to make changes to their appearance; changes that God never intended, and are certainly not desirable. Be who you are, everybody, and be proud of it! At the very least, be content.
Bonus: Below, a rare moody b&w photo, not from the magazine, but a publicity still from before the series.
