Supreme Models: Iconic Black Women Who Revolutionized Fashion Cover Image

To date, there has never been a book devoted exclusively to 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, Beverly Johnson, and Donyale Luna to the supermodels who reigned in the nineties–Tyra Banks and Naomi Campbell

The book also observes the newest generation of models–Adwoa Aboah, Jourdan Dunn, and Joan Smalls–who are shaking up the fashion industry by speaking out about racial prejudice and becoming social media sensations.  Written by celebrity stylist and journalist Marcellas Reynolds, Supreme Models features more than 70 women from the last 60 years.

The book is filled with gorgeous photographs of the women, and details their most memorable covers, campaigns, runway shows, and editorials. Black models have been influencing fashion and pop culture for decades, reshaping the standards and boundaries of beauty. Supreme Models is a celebration of their monumental impact.

The author will be present Friday, November 22 at 7:00 pm at Book Soup, 8818 Sunset Boulevard,West Hollywood.
