The Black Model Museum [#003]: The Beauty Dynasty

From The Cocoa Lounge
Generations of Beauty: Black Models
Three generations of fashion industry giants.

In one historic snapshot, circa 2001, Vanity Fair Photographer Annie Leibovitz captured over 30 years of black beauty from all around the globe. To us, it was one of the most relevant images published in the magazine in years.

(Models pictured. Front Row (l to r) : Gail O'neal, Karen Alexander, Shakara Ledard, Clara Benjamin Naomi Campbell, Iman, Second Row: (l to r) Kadra, Kara Young, Cynthia Bailey, Tyra Banks, Liya Kebede, Beverly Johnson Third Row: (standing) (l to r:) Oluchi, Katoucha, Adia, Noemie Lenoir

Absolutely beautiful! I have this photo in Iman's coffee-table book, I Am Iman, but I'm dying for a wall-sized print. Simply gorgeous!

Amazing photo, but a shame that all the black models from the last 30 years can fit on one page
