One thought on “Fun Black Fashion Fact: Beverly Peele”

  1. I remember her from my tween and teen years! I loved keeping up with her, Tyra, Naomi, Iman, and Veronica in the late 80’s and early 90’s. It meant alot to a young black girl to see women who looked like me in the high fashion mags not just rapper’s videos. I wish my neice who is 11 now could say the same.
