For decades, supermodels such as Janice Dickinson, Cheryl Tiegs, and Gisele Bündchen have been called on to don couture gowns, casual clothing, and sexy lingerie. They make these clothes look their best to sell them in magazines, catalogs, and TV advertisements. Famous for their hot bodies and beautiful faces, entrepreneurs like Tyra Banks and Heidi Klum have crossed over from modeling into TV hosting. Other famous models like Milla Jovovich and Brooklyn Decker have launched successful careers in film.
The women on this black model list hail from all over the world, including Nigeria, Jamaica, and the good ol' USA - and there are many mixed-race models as well. Vote for your favorites to move them to the top of the list, or press re-rank to create your own list of the best black models.
