5. Louise Vyent (Surinam)
Another pioneering 80s model, Vyent may also be the most under-rated on this list–on both counts: Caribbean and supermodel. But with multiple Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and Glamor covers in the 80s, appearances in SI’s swimsuit issue and the Victoria secret catalog–not to mention a major Revlon campaign–this browning of Dutch/Surinamese descent was clearly a force to be reckoned with. More importantly, she ALSO appeared opposite Eddie in Boomerang as “woman from Holland”–which is how we knew she was predestined to be on this list.
