Winner of the Miss World crown in 1976, Cindy Breakespeare is more of a beauty queen than a top fashion model but there is no doubt that her win opened doors for every other Caribbean model on this list–and symbolized small-axe Island triumph in the 70s. Around the same time, her relationship with Bob Marley enthroned her as unofficial Jamaican royalty (Breakespeare was Marley’s lover and is mother of Grammy-winning musician Damian Marley aka Jr. Gong)–and propelled her into the rarefied celebrity realm of the supermodel.
