Naomi Sims: Supermodel

Published: 3/30/2012

Naomi Sims would have celebrated her 64th birthday today. As the first black supermodel, she shattered boundaries and made a name for herself in a fashion world that was still quite prejudiced in the 1960s and '70s. She went on to become an author and entrepreneur with a multi-million dollar beauty empire. Her own beauty and poise were remarkable – but don't take our word for it.
