RIP to An Icon of Style

Wednesday, August 5, 2009

Naomi Sims passed away last week...

For those of you that aren't familiar with her, chances are you saw her work on any stylish wig-wearing family member. You were officially considered "balling status" if you rocked a Naomi Sims wig. For people of color, Naomi Sims was the cadillac of hair. Don't believe me, ask your grandmother or older aunt.

But before her infamous line of wigs and certainly before Naomi Campbell, Tyra, Alek Wek, Iman and Beverly Johnson, there was Naomi. There are numerous tributes around the net that can certainly give more justice to Sims than I can...but just know that a true icon of style is no longer with us...but her style lives on.
My own tribute is a look at my versatility of style thanks to women like Naomi Sims...

My fellow twitter friend Afrobella has done a smashing tribute to Sims...check it out here.
