Ms Webb was born on 23rd February, 1965 in Detroit, Michigan, USA.
She was noticed by a make-up artist. Initially her modeling work was done alongside writing, journalism and reporting.
In the late 80's, Veronica lived in Paris at the house of designer Azzedine Alaia, among a group of personalities like Patrick Kelly, Tina Turner and Karl Lagerfeld. She really enjoyed interacting with these creative people at that time in her life.
Her brains, beauty and outgoing personality made her the perfect model for Revlon, the cosmetics giant and she became the first African-American woman to be offered a contract with a major cosmetics firm.
In 1985 Webb made her feature film debut in Spike Lee's Jungle Fever. Her film credits include Animal Husbandry, The Big Tease and Spike Lee’s Malcolm X and Jungle Fever. She has also been featured in a recurring role on the television show “Damon” and has appeared in “Just Shoot Me,” “Clueless” and Vogue magazine's syndicated style show Trend Watch.
Veronica has also been named on American Vogue's best dressed list three times.
Ms. Webb dedicates her time to several charitable organizations: LIFEBeat, Product Red and the RPM Nautical Foundation.
She is married to George Robb and they have 2 daughters together: Leila Rose Robb (born October 12, 2002) and Molly Blue Robb (born May 21, 2004). They live in the Florida Keys.
Webb can currently be seen as a co-host on Bravo's Tim Gunn's Guide To Style.
