The 2016 'TIME' 100 Most Influential People List Is Here & The Cover Stars Are Seriously Inspiring
Every year, there's a certain group of celebrities, activists, and creative minds who stand out in the way they inspire others, and now, it's their time to shine again. And now that the 2016 TIME Most Influential People list is here, it's time to honor them for their achievements — and this year's edition offers up six different black and white covers to honor as many people on the list as possible. Although there are obviously 100 people on the list, only a few made the cut for their own cover, and with so many incredible people to consider, it definitely had to be a difficult choice.
So whose faces will you see on newsstands? The covers include Leonardo DiCaprio, Nicki Minaj, Priscilla Chan and Mark Zuckerberg (sharing a cover), Christine Lagarde, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and Priyanka Chopra. The covers are all in black and white, and the actual list itself is divided up into categories like pioneers, titans, and icons. And as usual, the best part of the issue is the essays written about each honoree by someone close to them, so when you sit down to peruse the list, make sure you have plenty of free time, because you're going to want to read it all.
