Supermodel Sheila Johnson

Like Beverly Johnson, with whom she shared a last name (but no relation), Sheila Johnson was a top black model of the seventies and early eighties and was fairly ubiquitous - not to mention drop-dead gorgeous. Also, like Beverly Johnson, Sheila Johnson even did a couple of iconic magazine covers.


There the similarities end.

While Beverly Johnson had a more athletic image, Sheila Johnson was more soft and alluring, as evidenced by the picture below, which she did for an ad for Napier jewelry.


This once high-profile model has kept a low profile of late, but she's still an iconic (there's that word again) figure in the modeling world. Those who remember her do so fondly.



Oh, Sheila. . . . :-)
