Happy Birthday Naomi Campbell! 6 Reason Why We Love Her
The British supermodel celebrates her 44th birthday today without looking a day past her red hot sexiest. Apart from being one of the most powerful women of color to ever grace the catwalk, she is also a savvy business woman, a super sassy and opinionated speaker and a truly talented model. Here are a few reasons why we are still in love with the famous runway walker today today.
She was the first African American model to appear on the cover of both British and French Vogue, a favorite of photographers Bruce Weber and Peter Lindbergh and a model in Madonna’s art book Sex. Kudos enough to make any fashion junkie swoon.
Despite famously falling in a pair of Vivienne Westwood pumps, Campbell is still known to have one of the best walks in the business. She has catwalked for Versace, Alaiia and Mizrahi and is still a runway favorite to this day.
Campbell’s career is the stuff of legends. Apart from being one of the most famous supermodels in existence, she has written a book, tried her hand at acting and is set to launch her own fashion line by the end of the year. #NaomiForPresident.
Model of Color
Campbell has always been vocal about the rights of women of color in the fashion industry. Gracing the covers of many formerly racially opposed fashion magazines, as well as influencing famous designers such as Yves St. Laurent to speak out in favor of diversity, Campbell has been an influential voice in the diversity movement in fashion.
