This photo of Helen Williams is from “Skin Deep: Inside the World of Black Fashion Models”, a fascinating book about the rich history, struggles and achievements of women of color in the fashion industry. I love how the vivid yellow chiffon looks against her beautiful brown skin and my devotion to white gloved elegance has me completely smitten! The stunning Ms. Williams began her modeling career back in 1954 and, according to the book, “was the most photographed model of color of her era”. Interestingly, all of this glamour was created for an ad for feminine hygiene products. My, how times have changed!
