#14) Georgiana Robertson: Grace in 3" Heels
A Jamaican born girl turned international model, Georgiana Robertson was discovered on the streets of New York and quickly moved up the ranks and runways to a lifestyle that most girls only dream of.
Ms. Robertson is a beauty inside and out. She stands regal, tall, beautiful,confident and humble.
Her sweet natured personality won the hearts of many top designers like Yves Saint Laurent who was rumored to claim her as
" his favorite " when she first started out in the early 90's.
Georgianna became the first woman of color on the prestigious double Christmas / New Years issue of French VOGUE and was the 3rd ever, on the cover of French VOGUE , after Iman and Naomi.
In this day when physical beauty seems to run the world it is refreshing to see a super model with so much grace, manners and genuine care for others.
"Please" , "Thank you" and "Have a nice night" are words that easily fall from her lips. There is no "put on", no performance with her. Robertson keeps it real and hasn't allowed her career as a international model get to her head. Georgiana has walked the runway with top models such as Tyra, Naomi and Claudia to name a few and hasn't lost sense of her roots. She has graced the pages of Seventeen, Vogue, and Sports illustrated magazine and has over 60 international magazine covers under her belt yet she just smiles when you ask her about her career.
She has also worked in film. Starring in movies such as “Pret-a-Porter”(“Ready-to-wear”) and a few music videos like "Hot Stepper". She has made countless TV appearances in the US and overseas. The first woman of color to be used by the L’OREAL brand LANCOME cosmetics, Ms.Robertson is the most successful Jamaican born supermodel to date with a rags to riches story that reminds you to dream BIG and never forget that model or not, you are super!!!!
Ripping international runways is not only glamorous, it's exhausting.
Robertson has returned to a simpler lifestyle, reconnected with her family and is catching up on much needed rest.
