Black Models: Back to Stay
September 12, 1988
This Elle magazine cover starring Karen Alexander was featured in a Newsweek story I reported. I must confess I'm horrified to see that although I had lunch with Iman, and if memory serves, Beverly Johnson, too, none of their quotes made it into the final edit. In the end, the experience proved to be prophetic: Six months later, I left Newsweek to work for Elle.
