Avonte Wright (c. 1974- ) was one of the top black swimsuit models in America in the late 1990s and early 2000s. She is now retired and running her own skin care business, but her pictures still appear in magazines.
She has beautiful eyes, great lips and a wonderful face. But it is mainly her large breasts that have brought her success as a swimsuit model. Her measurements are 36D-25-34 (91-64-86 cm).
Her breasts seem too large for her body, just like with Pamela Anderson, yet they seem to be natural. She says they get in the way of people taking her seriously.
She often makes the point that beauty comes as much from the inside as from the outside.
She has been in music videos for Men at Large, Dogg Pound, Sisqo, and R. Kelly. She has also been on television and in films, but mainly as a dancer or a pretty face. You can see her in “The Parkers”, the HBO film “The Mike Tyson Story”, “Rude Awakening” on Showtime and in the straight-to-DVD film “Three Strikes and Foolish”.
She is best known by far for her pictures in calendars and men’s magazines. She is often pictured with Sacha Kemp.
She is not as famous as, say, Buffie the Body or Melyssa Ford: she has been on cover of Black Men magazine twice, for example, but she has never made the cover of King. She has been in Smooth magazine but never on its cover. You will not find her in the Wikipedia.
In March 1998, when Black Men first put her on the cover, they took a chance: she was unknown except on the Internet. When she first saw herself on the cover she thought it was someone else: they had made her skin lighter! She appeared again on the cover in March 2000.
Like Kenya Moore and Lizz Robbins, she was born a bit too early to be a video vixen in the full sense.
She is also a bit too thin. The move from thin black models to thick ones starting in the late 1990s meant her sort of figure fell out of fashion.
She retired from modelling and went back to school. After that she started her own business, Skin Amour. The name means “Skin Love”. It sells make-up that makes your skin look good.
She got into that business when she was going with a man who had better skin than she did! So she tried all different kinds of things to make her skin look better. She was like a walking science project. In time she found stuff that worked, but since she could not buy it anywhere, she made it for herself and started selling it to others.
She is from Hollywood, Florida.
She says: “I don’t let the game change me, I change the game!”
