Supermodel Veronica Webb made a big splash in the fashion world in the early 1990s. She was the first black supermodel to win an exclusive contract for a major cosmetics company (Revlon). The 5’11” former Victoria’s Secret model also pursued an acting career: she made her debut in Spike Lee’s 1991 film Jungle Fever.
Thirty years later and Veronica is still modeling! The 56-year-old mother of two recently modeled for Kim Kardashians’ SKIMS bra and boyfriend-inspired briefs (below).
She captioned the SKIMS under trench coat photos below: “Nobody’s perfect.” That chic coat Veronica is wearing below is by Camilla and Marc and those rain boots are by HUNTER.
Below are photos from her Victoria’s Secret days. She writes of that time: “in 1992: I’m 27 years old, 5’11, and 120 pounds. I was underfed and anxious.”
She writes today “I weigh 155 pounds. I work out and diet because my heart health and my brain health deserve it. Yes, it’s nice that I can slip into jeans or a bikini – but that’s not my number one goal.”
