Ford Models has jumped on the celebrating-models-of-color bandwagon with its latest promotion pulling in beauties from the agency's Women, Direct, Lifestyle and Ford+ divisions.

A spokeswoman told us:

Following FORD +'s blonde promo, this concept is to show diversity. It is the 2nd in a series of promos to highlight beauty. The inspiration was the breakthrough into fashion of style icons that weren't the norm at that time. It was Bianca Jagger, Diana Ross, Beverly Johnson and Iman. This was celebration of the of the models of that era. As the plus models today are breaking ground, this is the nod to the models and their inspirational movement that put Beverly Johnson on the cover of American Vogue in August of 1974.

Well, move over, Bianca, Diana, et al. We spy some of our favorite present-day camera-hogs: Damaris Lewis, Marquita Pring and Bre Joyner.

Take a look at the preview pictures below.
