According to The New York Times, famed supermodel Naomi Sims passed away on Saturday at the age of 61 due to cancer. She was regarded as the world's first African-American supermodel and helped pave the way for many minorities. After gracing the covers of Cosmopolitan, LIFE and the like, Sims went on to start her own company making wigs for African American women as well as writing multiple books on beauty and the modeling industry.
Her influence on the world has been felt all over and her presense will be greatly missed.
