Naomi Sims

On a recent trip to an Andy Warhol exhibition, I came across the below photograph of the artist and Naomi Sims and it reminded me of what an inspirational woman she was. 

Naomi Sims is regarded as the first black supermodel.

What I really love about her is her foresight to start a business that went on to become a multi-million dollar company. She also wrote a few books including 'How to be a Top Model' and 'All about Success for the Black Woman'. Here are some pics in celebration of the wonderful Naomi Sims who passed away in 2009; Phenomenal woman.
