Our sister site Racked National sat down with supermodel Beverly Johnson (aka the first black woman to grace the cover of Vogue) to talk beauty and Johnson's new line of products. On her reasons for launching a beauty line: "My daughter wears her hair natural, and that’s the thing, even if you wear a wig or a weave you want to take care of your hair underneath. People don’t know that." [Racked N'tl]
