R.I.P. Naomi Sims

Naomi Sims was what we consider the 1st black supermodel. She paved the way for the Naomi Campbells and Tyra Banks we know now.

She also was an entrepreneur and used her name to carry her much further than her modeling. I remember her cosmetics and fragrance lines. She also has a very successful wig line.

You will be missed and you are appreciated for helping to mainstream black beauty.
