American supermodel Tyra Banks has done it all: ad campaigns, cosmetic endorsements, singing, acting, and being the executive producer/judge of the popular show "America's Next Top Model," but first and foremost, she is one of the hottest black models. Tyra's career started in Paris where she booked twenty-five shows within her first week there. Walking the runway for all the major fashion designers landed her major print ads, and Tyra became the first black Victoria Secret model to land on the catalog cover in 1997.

Achieving what few supermodels have done, Iman is known worldwide by her first name only. Somalian supermodel Iman received her big break when photographer Peter Beard spotted her walking in Nairobi and asked to photograph her. Eighteen year old Iman agreed to the price of eight thousand dollars which was the price of her tuition. Moving to New York, Iman was quickly thrusted into the fashion world where she stayed one of the top supermodels for fourteen years before retiring.

Naomi Sim paved the way for other African American's in the industry by never giving up her pursuit of becoming a fashion model. Naomi faced racial prejudice from agencies and instead of giving up, she took a hold of her career by asking photographer Gosta Peterson to photograph her for The New York Times fashion supplement. The following year, Naomi appeared on the cover of Life magazine with the caption reading, "Black Models Take Center Stage".
