When I was a child, I remember viewing the cover of Life Magazine which featured the first black supermodel, Naomi Sims, when it first came out around 1969 (as well as viewing the inside photos). She was the first black model to ever appear on their cover. Naomi Sims was definitely a fashion model icon. Life was one of the magazines my parents consistently purchased for our household. I remember thinking how beautiful Naomi was and hearing how ground breaking it was for a black model to appear on the cover of a major magazine such as Life (since the publication was extra large, in size, it was even more memorable). As a little black girl, Naomi's elegance spoke volumes to me when I saw Life magazine and subsequent publications featuring her. Naomi was also the first black model to appear on the cover of Ladies Home Journal (1960s). It was virtually impossible for black models to be accepted in the modeling industry (when Naomi got her big break in the 1960s)and she had intelligent ways to work around the often closed-door system to ultimately be accepted without altering her elegant style nor who she was. She paved the way for future supermodels Pat Cleveland, Beverly Johnson, Iman and those thereafter who all owe her a depth of gratitude. Glad she was able to attend Oprah's Legends Ball before she passed away. Rest In Peace.
