Naomi Sims 1949 - 2009


The first African American Super-Model died Saturday at age 61. Naomi Sims lost her battle with cancer but won many battles in her lifetime. She was a trailblazer, a beauty, and successful business woman. A nice tribute here posted by Monica Roberts.
R.I.P and thank you to a great American lady.

Jackie the life photo of Naomi is one of the most memorable one for me.I don't know what's about the photo that i have never forgot it. Maybe it was the fact she had such beautiful dark skin. She sure did help pave the way for so many.
