Donyale Luna – The First Black Supermodel, Whom History Forgot
Fashion model Donyale Luna, the first black model to appear on the cover of Vogue, modeling to a captive public audience, in a shopping mall in Sydney Australia. Donyale, who also appeared in several movies produced by Andy Warhol, died in 1979 at the age of 33 from a heroin overdose.
It’s slow progress since Donyale Luna became the first black supermodel nearly 50 years ago. Especially since most inveterate fashion-watchers don’t even know Luna’s name.
