Veronica Webb has received many accolades during her rise to elite status in the fashion world. Throughout her tenure as an internationally known super model she has graced the covers of Elle and Vogue in addition to several other major fashion magazines. In addition to those amazing accomplishments, she was also the first African-American model to land a major cosmetics contract.
Now with over two decades in the game she continues to be a major player in the fashion industry but has been absent from the runway for five years. This hiatus came to an end last Thursday when Veronica took the catwalk at the Seven Bar Foundation’s LINGERIE New York 2010 gala and fashion show, for the nobel cause of supporting microfinance loans to women.
Hennessy Black helped celebrate Veronica’s return to the runway by collaborating with fashion designer Dara Young to create a wonderfully designed LED lit Hennessy Black ‘Light Goddess’ Corset that Veronica wore during the show. In addition, Hennessy teamed up with world renowned mixologist Brent Harcombe to create a signature drink that was served at the event called Silk Webb.
Before the show, I had a chance to speak to Veronica on the red carpet about how she became involved with the foundation and the importance of microfinance.
