"Supermodel Donayale Luna was one of the world's most beautiful women in the 1960s. Born Peggy Ann Freeman in Detroit, Luna began modeling in 1965 and within months, an article in Time magazine declared 1966 to be "The Luna Year." She was the first black model to appear on the cover of British Vogue, was a muse to legendary photographers like Richard Avedon and David Bailey, and vamped through several Warhol and Fellini films. Famously a fan of LSD, the devastatingly beautiful model died of a drug overdose at 39."
