The untimely passing of Naomi Sims — one of fashion’s first prominent African-American models — at 61 on Saturday saddened the editors at WWD. Over the years, the paper and its reporters often encountered the stunning, always elegant Sims, who was a trailblazer in the ethnic beauty category, launching the Naomi Sims Collection of cosmetics for African-American women in the Seventies and publishing books that included “All About Health & Beauty for the Black Woman” (1976).
