Beverly Johnson (born October 13, 1952 in Buffalo, New York, USA) is a supermodel.

Beverly Johnson is the second African-American model to grace the cover of American Vogue.The August 1974 cover was shot by famed photographer Francesco Scavullo. Donyale Luna,an African-American model had previously appeared on the cover of foriegn issues of the magazine. As well as Donyale Luna's appearance Ms. Johnson's appearance on American newsstands was a landmark that helped expand the notion of beauty and it helped dispel the myth that white women would not buy a fashion magazine with a black model on the cover.

Was honored by Oprah Winfrey in her Legends Ball special.

No, she was the first black woman on American Vogue. The first black woman on Vogue was Donyale Luna on UK Vogue. :)
