Beauty Flashback - Whitney Houston, RIP

Whitney Houston on cover of Seventeen Magazine RIP In this series, I look back at models, entertainers and celebrities who have left an indelible mark on the world of beauty, fashion, modeling, and style for me via magazine covers.

On Saturday, February 11th 2012 the singer, entertainer and world wide star Whitney Houston passed away in Los Angeles on the eve of the 2012 Grammy Awards.

While looking at all of the television and internet coverage of her life, it dawned on me that for many of us fashion/beauty obsessed girls, we knew Whitney actually started her career off as a MODEL. This 1981 Seventeen magazine cover was one of her first major breaks, and she became one of the few African-American models on the magazine.

I love this cover because it completely captures two of the things she became known for over the years - her amazing smile and skin!

RIP Whitney, you will be missed. - RLB
