Black Beauty Icon: Beverly Johnson

February 01, 2012

Well as we all know its February and that means its Black History Month. So, I want to talk about the first African-American supermodel Beverly Johnson. Looking at this stunning picture to the left, I'm sure you can see why she is a supermodel. Beverly Johnson is more than a model she is a mom, actress, author, activist, businesswoman, TV personality, and a BEAUTY icon.

As a model in the 1970s, 80s, and 90s, Beverly appeared on more than 500 magazine covers from Glamour and Cosmopolitan to Essence, Ebony and French Elle. She has thousands of editorial pages, and hundreds of advertising campaigns to her credit. Her success during the 70s and 80s transcended race as Beverly became a household name. She signed with the Ford Modeling agency and was one of the highest paid models in the industry in a very short period of time. Her work wasn’t limited to print; Beverly also worked the runway for such designers as Yves St. Laurent, Valentino, Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren and Halston.

August 1974, Beverly Johnson was the first African American model to
grace the cover of American Vogue.
