The New Boy
By Jenny Bahn
Naomi Sims is often credited as being the first African American supermodel. No matter what her title — the girl has style. There are plenty of old school street style shots of her sashaying down the streets of New York City, sporting a host of relaxed, boyish outfits. Her look has withstood the test of time, proving that class is always classic. We’ve taken her look and added a few twists, vamping it up a bit for more modern times.
