Beauty Icons: Beverly Johnson

By Glinda

No list of beauty icons would be complete without her.  In 1974 she became the first African-American woman to be featured on the cover of American Vogue, and went on to have a long career as a model, with over 500 different magazine covers.  It certainly isn’t hard to see why she was in such demand.  She is, in a word, stunning.

 

The one that started it all.

Posing for Cosmopolitan in 1976.

Looking better with no makeup than anyone has a right to.

    She is an amazing person, too! All the interviews that I’ve read make her sound both smart and fun.
