Marcellas Reynolds

Today we're joined by Marcellas Reynolds, a true renaissance man and the author of Supreme Models: Iconic Black Women Who Revolutionized Fashion, a stunning collection of photos and essays that pays tribute to black models over the past 60 years, including editorials, magazine covers and ground breaking ad campaigns. We talk about the challenges of growing up gay on Chicago's South Side, his early fashion icons: his mother and grandmother, being discovered while waiting tables and modeling for designers Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger and Nautica. We talk about his transition into styling, followed by entertainment reporting and acting and how Supreme Models became his passion project and a labor of love eight years in the making.
