naomi sims

on August 3 2009, the lovely and elegant Naomi Sims passed away from complications due to Cancer. she was 61.

she broke barriers with her appearances on magazine covers long before any other black model and has left behind iconic images only made possible by her determination to overcome the numerous boundaries she faced in life, both personally and professionally.

rest in peace, Ms. Sims. thank you for breaking ground.

See and not only was she the first black super model, but of the darker persuasion too. Nothing against my light sistah's, but I'm proud of my dark skin and it is nice to see that all shades of brown are appreciated!
