A native of western Pennsylvania , Smith started her career as a fashion model.  She has graced the covers of 15 magazines including Mademoiselle 's first ever featuring an African-American woman.  She is currently the spokesperson for Colgate Palmolive Oxy Plus dishwashing products, General Mills Betty Crocker Cornbread and Muffin Mix, Pillsbury Grands and Unilever's Lawry seasonings, and appears in a national television commercial for Mercedes Benz.
