About the Book



"The first-ever book celebrating black models, filled with revealing essays, interviews, and stunning photographs"--Provided by publisher.



Book Synopsis



The first-ever art book celebrating top black models, filled with revealing essays, interviews, and stunning photographs

To date, there has never been a book devoted exclusively to top black models. Supreme Models fills that void, paying tribute to black models past and present: from the first to be featured in catalogs and on magazine covers, like Iman, Donyale Luna, and Beverly Johnson, to the supermodels who reigned in the nineties--Tyra Banks, Naomi Campbell, and Veronica Webb. The book also observes the newest generation of models--Adut Akech, Jourdan Dunn, and Joan Smalls--who are shaking up the fashion industry by speaking out about racial prejudice while becoming social media sensations.

Written by celebrity fashion stylist and journalist Marcellas Reynolds, Supreme Models features more than 70 women from the last 75 years. The book, filled with gorgeous photographs of the women, details their most memorable campaigns, covers, editorials, and runway shows. Black models have been influencing fashion and pop culture for decades, reshaping beauty standards and boundaries. Supreme Models is a celebration of their monumental impact.

"Supreme Models features photos, essays and magazine covers of fierce black females such as Naomi Campbell, Iman and Veronica Webb. . . . Supreme Models is as historical as it is visual.
