Vanessa Williams


Vanessa Lynn Williams was crowned Miss America on September 17, 1983, making her the first-ever African American to win the title. But the fun didn’t last long: Ten months into her reign, nude photos surfaced and she was forced to resign. That didn’t stop Vanessa. She has had a successful singing and acting career (perhaps her most popular role has been on Ugly Betty) and has also been a spokesperson for RadioShack, acne kit Proactiv, makeup makers L’Oréal and Crest Rejuvenating Effects Toothpaste. She has four kids, has been married twice and was born on March 18, 1963, in Tarrytown, New York.
