Naomi Sims Dead At 61

I'm sad to report that Naomi Sims, the first Black supermodel, has passed away at age 61. The legendary model lost her battle with cancer Saturday, according to the The New York Times.

Sims broke down many barriers in the industry and scored coveted covers of publications like Cosmopolitan, Life and Ladie's Home Journal, and walked the runways of legendary designers such as Halston and Bill Blass.

May this legendary Brown Bombshell rest in peace.
