Essence Atkins is one of those actresses who has been in the game for a while and has been in some classic flick and shows. She’s also been fine as all hell this whole time. She was down in Essence Fest this weekend looking as fine as ever. The Bossip crew definitely noticed and wanted to salute her un-aging excellence. At 47, she looks just like she did 20 years ago.
So you know what time it is: take a look at the newest addition to our Hello Summer series. So let’s salute a baddie legend and another reminder that black don’t crack.

Y'all know what day it is… On location in Atlanta working on my new film "Open". I'm both starring in and a producer on this one alongside @ninaholidayent (@cassigers & @terrijvaughn). It's a new hat and a lot of responsibility but I'm excited about the challenge. Great things come when you listen to God's promptings instead of your own deficit rhetoric. I am grateful to all who support me and are enjoying the evolution too. #myfriendaredope #blackgirlmagic #lovemyjob #thisis47 . . . And thank you for watching @ambitionsown where the summer is about to get even hotter
