In 1974, she was the first black model to land the coveted cover of Vogue
magazine and went on to grace more than 500 others. The New York Times
has called her one of the 20th century’s most influential people in fashion, and she has been honored at Oprah Winfrey’s
Legends Ball. But 59-year-old Beverly Johnson shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
The woman who forever changed the face of the fashion industry is now an entrepreneur with her own namesake collection of hair extensions and wigs. On the heels of the success of the hair line, Johnson is now launching a multi-cultural line of styling products called Model Logic in Target stores nationwide and also offers skincare products on her new e-commerce website BeverlyJohnson.com.
“I wanted to be more than just the face on the box or the name to help sell the product. It was time to really share my secrets, formulas, talent pool of resources, and lessons learned throughout my decades as a model and actress,” Johnson says.
We also asked the beauty what she does to keep herself in supermodel form. “I stay abreast of all the latest health and beauty advice and finding my fitness passion of playing golf has been an incredible lifesaver, providing me with physical and mental nourishment,” Johnson says.
