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. . . . :-)

I met Sheila at a Church in Boston on the day she turned 22 and we were all amazed by her beauty and grace!

I'd like to be her boyfriend and live off her wealth and in her shadow

John, I'd never live off any woman's wealth but I'm sure a lot of men would want to be her boyfriend and live in her shadow and never even think about money.
