Flashback Friday: Donyale Luna

Donyale Luna

"The First Black Super Model,” Donyale Luna entered the modeling world in 1965, discovered on the streets in her hometown city of Detroit at just 18 years old. People were amazed at her tall slender frame and that face, which was one in a billion. Her big eyes were simply stunning. Her life is also as interesting. I posted some life biographies below of her. For now, I just want to post my favorite photos of her and I hope you all find this beauty as iconic as I do.

'New York is a dream… a man danced me down Fifth Avenue, and all up and down Broadway men were eyeing and whistling at me, and so many other unbelievable things. I'm really getting the works from head to toe by Harper's Bazaar's best! As soon as possible I'll send you a picture of the new me. I'll be on top of the world if it takes every breath I have, every muscle of my skinny body. I feel it, I know it. I'll be some kind of star real soon. Real soon.'
