“I love this collection because it’s all about freedom and that’s super fresh and super fierce,” said Webb, the 52-year-old model, actress and television personality, who was also the first African-American to have a major cosmetics contact — with Revlon.

Elgort said, “Veronica Webb is not only a legend, she’s a role model. As one of the true pioneers of the industry, it was an honor to photograph her. I remember the pictures my father [Arthur Elgort] had shot of her in his book, “Model’s Manual,” which I still reference to this day. I was interested in shooting her on black-and-white film on one of my dad’s old Rolleiflex cameras, to create my own timeless images of her.”
