Model Naomi Sims died on Saturday at the age of 61, losing her battle to cancer.
Sims was considered the "first black supermodel" after appearing on the cover of Ladies Home Journal in November 1968, during a time when African-American models were very few.
She also subsequently modeled for designers like Halston, Fernando Sanchez, Teal Traina and Giorgio di Sant'Angelo.
Sims also appeared on many magazine covers, and two images - a 1969 cover of LIFE and a 1967 New York Times fashion magazine cover - are on display at the Metropolitan Museum's "The Model As Muse" exhibit.
After five years, she retired from modeling and started a wig-making business that specialized in designs for black women, earning her millions. Naomi Sims also has at least five books behind her name.
