Princess Elizabeth Toro from Uganda

#ThrowbackThursday- way before the world fell in love with Lupita Nyong'o there was Princess Elizabeth of Toro from Uganda. Listed as one of the most beautiful women in the world she was one of the first three African women to be admitted to Cambridge University and the first to be admitted to the English Bar Association. The statuesque beauty was 'the first black woman to have been given a spread in Vogue and the first to appear on the cover of Harper's Bazaar'. Proving she had beauty and brains she was also the first woman to have served as Uganda's minister of foreign affairs and the first to be its ambassador to the United States. What an incredible real life role model. We salute you Queen!
