Dorothea Towles (First Successful African American Fashion Model In Paris) Modeling for National Bohemian Beer...1955 African American Cooking Show...Washington, DC
Occasionally I post photos from my historical collection...sometimes music, sometimes beer, sometimes something else. When I was growing up, my father was a Regional Manager for the National Brewing Company...makes of National Bohemian Beer (Natty Boh), Colt 45 Malt Liquor and other brews. This photo from 1955 is of Dorothea Towles (later married and became Dorothea Towles Church). According to Wikipedia: Dorothea Towles Church (July 26, 1922—July 7, 2006) was the first successful black fashion model in Paris. Church was revered in France during the five years she modeled in Paris. "If you're beautiful, (the French) don't care what color you are," Church said. Church recalled her experience in Paris of the early 1950s in a 2004 interview for Women's Wear Daily: "For once I was not considered black, African American or Negro. I was just an American." The French fashion establishment "treated you like a queen," she said. In her 1998 book Black and Beautiful, author Barbara Summers quotes Church about her celebrity status in Paris at the beginning of the 1950s: "I got invited out all the time. I was the only black model in Europe and I just thought I was an international person." Church was not totally immune to prejudice in Paris, however. Pierre Balmain wouldn't allow her to borrow his designs for an Ebony Magazine shoot out of concern Balmain's white clientele would be offended. "They didn't think that African American women would buy the clothes, that they could buy the clothes," Church told Summers. "That's where my education and my experience came in. I knew about black history and black society." Instead, Church told Balmain she wanted to wear the dresses to a party. The photographs later were published in Ebony. While on a modeling assignment for Elsa Schiaparelli, Church overheard someone describe her as Tahitian.

“BEAUTIFUL” Vogue

“SUPERB” The Daily Express

“MAGNIFICENT” Black Hair

“AN ENTERTAINING CHRONICLE” VIBE

“LOOK AND LEARN” Independent on Sunday

“CRISPLY WRITTEN, WITH SMART DESCRIPTIONS” i-D

“A SMART, SUMPTUOUS BOOK, INTELLIGENT AND INSIGHTFUL” Essence

“CONTROVERSIAL AND THOUGHT-PROVOKING” New York Amsterdam News

How did Martin Luther King change the face of fashion? What did Malcolm X think about hair straightening? Why did the Afro go out of fashion? Why did Josephine Baker use lemon juice to lighten her skin? Who was the first black model on the cover of ‘Vogue’? Who spat in the face of a well-known fashion designer because he used black models? What lies behind Beyonce’s blonde ambition? Was Michael Jackson more white woman than black man?

Find out the answers to these and many other thought-provoking questions in this third edition of Ben Arogundade’s best-selling book, ‘Black Beauty’. Originally published in print in 2000, with a second edition in 2003, this new digital edition has been extensively revised specially for the format.

‘Black Beauty’ chronicles the way in which the beauty values of blacks have fared throughout Western culture, from antiquity to the present. It analyses the aesthetics of make-up, hair, skin-tone and facial features, and the way in which they have historically been both accepted and rejected within society. The narrative draws on the galaxy of African American stars of twentieth century film, fashion, music, television and sports. From Josephine Baker to Beyonce, from traditional African hairstyles to coloured contact lenses and blonde weaves, ‘Black Beauty’ has become the key text for all studies of this branch of beauty history.

In 2003 ‘Black Beauty’ was adapted into a major three-part documentary, ‘When Black Became Beautiful’, for BBC TV.
