On darker-skinned models, below is quite an old photograph of a girl modelling an Italian woollen suit. I always assumed she was African but maybe she was a dark southern Italian.

Does anybody recognise her? I have had good luck with this sort of query recently, so maybe I will get lucky again.

    That is the french model Nadege du Bospertus who was a top model in the early 90s. She was a big favorite of Versace and Armani. She is with D Management in Milan. 🙂

      Thank you!

      I have always thought her very lovely. I have that old picture of her over my desk still.
