With a fabulous weekend, it only made sense that Beverly Johnson ended up at Just Fabulous.

Johnson, the first woman of color to be on the cover of Vogue, was at Just Fabulous in North Palm Springs for a book signing of her memoire, “The Face That Changed It All.”

A Rancho Mirage resident, Johnson was a fashion pioneer and had a weekend full of recognition.

On Thursday, Dec. 1, she joined championship boxer Timothy Bradley, Palm Springs police chief Bryan Reyes, philanthropist Nelda Linsk, and Palm Springs mayor Robert Moon for the tree lighting ceremony.

On Dec. 3, Johnson was the Grand Marshall of the Palm Springs Festival of Lights parade, joining Reyes and Linsk. Earlier on Saturday, Johnson received her star on the Palm Springs Walk of Stars.

The weekend ended with Johnson doing a book signing at Just Fabulous, where she took time out to star in this video.

The book includes her encounters, including Bill Cosby, Mick Jagger, Warren Beatty, Jack Nicholson, Mike Tyson and Chris Noth, Mr. Big in “Sex and the City.”
