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.
We caught up with the curvy beauty who speaks out on body image issues and arts funding in schools. “We live in a society that promotes a desire for thinness at any cost in the quest for the attainment of unrealistic beauty,” Emme says. “I want women to know their self-esteem is not contingent upon their dress size and good health is attainable by more than just one body type.”
