NAOMI CAMPBELL COVERS VOGUE MAGAZINE

Legendary supermodel Naomi Campbell graces the cover of US Vogue for the first time in 27 years.

The outspoken 50-year-old beauty icon is looking all kinds of angelic on the cover and throughout the spread, and even speaks out on advocating for black models throughout her career.

Here’s what she had to say about racism within the modeling industry:

“I never used to say the word racism; I just used to say, it’s territorialism. I never wanted people to say that I used that as an excuse, that I was throwing that word out. Now I’m happy that everyone’s all on the same page, that everyone feels comfortable to come out about their experiences without feeling some stigma. But for me, nothing’s changed. I’m going to speak the same way.”

On racism in both American and British media:

“I’d rather have racism be right in front of my face and know what I’m dealing with, than to have it suppressed. No disrespect to the country I was born in, but we need to dig it up and bring it up and deal with it. No more chucking it down the sides.” 

On her thoughts of racial injustice:

“I absolutely believe we are going to get the positive outcome we deserve, but we have to do our work in making sure we get it. I think reparations are important for the people to really see that this is something that’s been taken seriously.”
