Pat Cleveland
I searched and searched and was shocked to discover that she does not have her own thread.

From http://www.divasthesite.com/Runway_D...Cleveland.htm:
One of the first women of color to enjoy worldwide recognition, American model Pat Cleveland got her break when she was 14, after being spotted on the subway by a Vogue editor. She is best known for her playfully over-the-top poses and worked with Valentino, Oscar de la Renta and Yves Saint Laurent. Also, together with Karen Bjornson and Anjelica Huston she was one of Halston's original models. They were so loyal that they became known as the Halstonettes. Cleveland returned to the runway five years ago, walking at the Bill Blass and Stephen Burrows shows in New York and is now in her late fifties.

From http://panachereport.com/channels/ol...e/Donyale.htm:

Contrary to popular belief, Naomi Campbell is not the runway queen. That title belongs to Pat Cleveland who became the best runway model in fashion history.

Affectionately called Cleveland. Pat Cleveland (pictured above to the left) would dominate the runway like no other model. Legendary performer Josephine Baker made it well known, she wanted Cleveland to portray her in a film, if her life story was ever adapted for a movie because Cleveland bore a resemblance to a younger Baker.

The things that Cleveland did on the runway; have yet to be duplicated. She had a partner, male model and dance partner, Sterling St. Jacques, pictured above, (son of late actor Raymond St. Jacques), they walked the runway like two graceful black panthers and they were known to break into a Tango.

The crowd would stand on their feet in anticipation when they came on stage and they didn't disappoint. At one event, St. Jacques came out carrying Cleveland on his shoulders. They were also dance partners on Soul Train.

Pat Cleveland is currently signed with the Legends division of the Ford Modeling Agency.

When she isn't working on the modeling circuit, she relaxes at her Chateau in the Swiss Alps.

She loves to vacation in Monte Carlo, eating smoked barracuda on private yachts.

When she attends Fashion Week in New York, she has reserved ringside seats and she's treated like royalty.
