The beautiful Naomi is the first black supermodel to appear on the cover of the 'Ladies' Home Journal' in 1968. Sims proved herself at a time when white women were more favored in the modeling industry. She played a huge role in her community as she stood up for all the black women.

Her dark skin color never stopped her from following her passion. The current top models Chanel Iman, Beverly Johnson, and Naomi Campbell follow her footsteps. Fans love how Naomi was always comfortable in her skin.

The Black model, Naomi Sims.

The glamorous model worked very hard to make a mark in the fashion industry. She hired the 'New York Times' photographer, Gosta Peterson, and graced the cover of 'Fashion of the Times'. Hollywood offered her the main role in the movie 'Cleopatra Jones'.

She turned it down as the film promoted racism. We applaud her for always standing up for her rights.

In 1970, she started running her million dollars business. Her amazing collection had beauty and skincare products, wigs, and a signature fragrance. Naomi worked with many charity organizations, drug addicts, and civic groups.
She also wrote several books including 'How to be a Top Model' and ' All about Haircare for the Black Women'. Her admirers will never forget her gorgeous looks and her phenomenal work.
