Here are the most beautiful black women models that I know of who are famous enough to be in the Wikipedia. Some of these are too old to model any longer, but all were models once.
Most are either fashion models, like Naomi Campbell, or hip hop models, like Bria Myles.
Hip hop models or video vixens are for the most part too short or have too much of a figure to be fashion models. But their great figures make them perfect for swimsuit calendars, men’s magazines and music videos. They are also known as video vixens.
3. Bria Myles (1984- ) is an American hip hop model. She has a sweet smile and a wonderful body. I first saw her in Twista’s “Girl Tonight” and then in Kanye West’s “Brand New”. I could not take my eyes off her. More.
4. Beverly Peele was an American supermodel from the 1990s. I only saw a few pictures of her on the Internet back then, but she was great!
5. Taís Araújo (1978- ), from Rio, became the first black actress to appear as a main character in a telenovela on Brazilian television. She is a presenter on the television show “Superbonita”, about how to be beautiful! More.
7. Ildi Silva (1982- ) is a Brazilian television actress from Bahia. She was discovered on the streets of Salvador and became a model. She says that in Brazil she is seen as neither black nor white. According to the BBC she is one-fifth African by blood and one-tenth native Indian. Her green eyes are Dutch. More.
9. Lizz Robbins (1974- ) is an American hip hop model. She was King magazine’s first Web girl of the year and was Jet magazine’s Beauty of the Week twice. Like Bria Myles, she has a sweet smile and a great body. More.
10. Toccara Jones (1981- ) is an American model. She placed eighth in “America’s Next Top Model” in the same season that YaYa Da Costa placed second. She wants to become the world’s first thick black supermodel. More.
Honourable mentions, listed in no particular order: Garcelle Beauvais, Neferteri Shepherd, Tyra Banks, Tomika Skanes, Anya James, Rojane Fradique, Yasmin Warsame, Oluchi Onweagba, Carla Campbell, Charmaine Sinclair, Kenya Moore, Esther Baxter, Meagan Good and Chanel Iman.
Most would put Iman and Alek Wek on a list like this. Iman is beautiful, but she leaves me cold. As for Alek Wek, she seems ugly to me. I never understood what people saw in her.
