Remember when we shared the behind-the-scenes video of Olympic gold medalist Gabby Douglas getting glam forESSENCE‘s December issue? Well, we finally have a look at the lovely cover.

America’s new sweetheart shines in a Notte by Marchesa black-and-gold frock and one of her two gold medals for the glossy’s annual “Women Of The Year” issue.

In the cover story “Gabby Takes Flight,” the 16-year-old opens up about her life after making Olympic history.

(Gabby also snagged a spot on Glamour’s “Women Of The Year” list.) Even so, she doesn’t seem jaded by her success.

“In my dreams I didn’t think about how many shows I would be on and how many people would tweet me…it’s so cool!” Gabby told ESSENCE.
