howtobeafuckinglady:

truly. not only did she surpassed her contemporaries (linda, stephanie,christy,cindy,claudia) she did so while being black. she’s so past that whole 90’s supermodel thing especially since none of those girls have worked like that since then. her body of work is incredible and the fact that she’s STILL booking major covers is just like wild to me.

praise her light
