"It’s a nod of appreciation to the people who work tirelessly day in, day out to keep us safe and healthy."

The supermodel gushed over MJ Day for "helping to spread the message of confidence, strength, beauty and body diversity."
The Smiths are at it again! In their first joint magazine cover, Willow and Jaden Smith pose together for Interview in a high fashion shoot and sit down for a Q&A with family friend, Pharrell Williams.
Since 1993,Â People has searched far and wideÂ for the “Most Beautiful Woman” in the world (technically,Â the magazineÂ doesn’t venture outside of Hollywood). The title, although arbitrary and subjective, holds weight in certain circles â and, let’s be honest, who wouldn’t want to grace the cover of a magazine with such a flattering and transcendent tagline. This year,Â Jennifer Aniston received the honor and defines beauty asÂ “inner confidence. Peace. Kindness. Honesty. A life well-lived.Â … Taking on challenges and not feeling shame for things that haven’t gone the way you felt they should have. And not feeling like a failure or allowing people to critique your life and make you feel like you’ve failed at something. That’s just toxic noise.”The 47-year-old was actually named the “Most Beautiful” â once beautiful, always beautiful â in 2004, just weeks ahead of announcing her divorce from Brad Pitt. Yet Aniston, who gushes about Justin Theroux in the May 2016 issue, isn’t the only one to win twice. In fact, Julia Roberts wasÂ People’sÂ “Most Beautiful Person” (men and women weren’t segregated into two separate issues until 2013) in 2005, 2000, and 1993.Not much has changed throughout the contest’s history considering the same women are continuously being selected, but one thing to note is the evolution of retouching. If Catherine Zeta-Jones’ cover hit the Internet today, social media would erupt in outrage. It’s also interesting to note that the feature stories have gotten fluffier and more diplomatic with less hard-hitting questions. At the time of Aniston’s first interview, she opened up about taking folic acids to prepare for a family with her ex-husband. Kate Hudson pondered plastic surgery andÂ Drew Barrymore talked about zits.Looking through the archive, it’s also evident that there areÂ a few shared characteristics among all the winners. The first being that nearly every woman selected has blonde hair. Aniston, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Lopez, Christina Applegate, Hudson, and even BeyoncÃ©. Also, they’re all mostly white. Halle Berry was the first black individual selected, theÂ FormationÂ singer followed in 2012, and Lupita Nyong’o, 2014’s selection, is the only one to flaunt distinctive African features including her natural hair.Yet being selected as “Most Beautiful” doesn’t necessarily make one that â it could just indicate that the actress is, at press time, trendy or promoting a film. Aniston is pushing Mother’s Day, Paltrow was promotingÂ Iron Man 3, and Hudson was pluggingÂ WildAid, an eco-friendly hair care line. Angelina Jolie was so buzzyÂ in 2006 that the magazine ran a stock image with a story that the “Saint” wasn’t even quoted in. Some appearancesÂ coincided with momentous life events. After Christina ApplegateÂ was honored with “Most Beautiful,” she gaveÂ the tabloidÂ her first interview after battling breast cancer. Queen Bey alsoÂ opened up publicly toÂ PeopleÂ after giving birth to her daughter Blue Ivy and Nicole Kidman did so when she was fresh off of breaking free from Tom Cruise and Scientology’s shadow.It’s interesting to note the the actressesÂ PeopleÂ has passed over. Cate Blanchett, Jessica Chastain, Penelope Cruz, Viola Davis, Jennifer Lawrence, Blake Lively, Rachel McAdams, Meryl Streep, Charlize Theron, Gabrielle Union Kerry Washington, and Olivia Wilde to name a few. And this is only actresses! Include musicians, influencers, models, and regular people, and the list of overlooked gets longer and longer.Â Until next year…Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest for nonstop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.
