Naomi Campbell

Each year TIME magazine rolls out their highly coveted list of “ALL-TIME” most influential style stars since the magazine’s 1923 launch, and this year the list is broken down into categories of Designers & Brands, Models, Muses, Photographers, Editors & Stylists and Style & Design. While the list of 100 luminaries lacks diversity, it does manage to highlight fashion icons such as Naomi Campbell and FLOTUS Michelle Obama. See who else made the cut.

Naomi Campbell was the first Black model on the covers of French and British Vogue and the supermodel boldly broke through the predominantly white industry in the 1980s and '90s.
