Golden Gabby Douglas has been making her rounds in the media. From Oprah to Letterman to Essence, we’re all consuming of the Olympic gynmast darling, Gabby. Essence has this breathtaking way of taking our favorite celebrities and glamming them up to make us wish we could shine half as bright.

Being that Gabby already shines brighter than gold, Essence didn’t have to try to hard to give the “Flying Squirrel” her sparkle. Check out this behind-the-scenes look at Gabby Douglas at her Essence shoot in some of my favorite screenshots below! And if that’s not enough for you, check out the October and November issues of Essence for the FULL shoot!
