Iman, Naomi Campbell and Tyra Banks have paved the way for ethnic models in fashion. While fair-skinned models flood the runways, these dark-skinned beauties prove that true beauty and talent transcends. Check out our list of the top black models in fashion!
Few in modeling history have established staying power like Iman. Born in Mogadishu, Somalio, she was discovered in 1975 at 20. Iman proves sheer versatility, with several books, a successful makeup line and her role as host on Bravo's The Fashion Show. This ageless beauty was recently the recipient of the CFDA Fashion Icon lifetime achievement award. We can only hope that we look half as good as Iman does when we're 55 years old!
