Where Are They Now? 6 Groundbreaking Supermodels
Find out how they're staying fit, healthy, and beautiful as ever
The first African-American woman to grace the cover of Vogue, the first plus-size supermodel, and the former face of Halston, way before Sarah Jessica Parker made the label chic again—these are all milestones made by groundbreaking fashion models Beverly Johnson, Alva Chinn, and Emme. But where are they now? We caught up with six former supermodels to find out what they are up to (bestselling books! haircare lines!) and how they are staying healthy and fit.
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.
