Cover Girl | More Naomi Campbell

8 07 2008

For more than two decades, supermodel extraordinaire, Naomi Campbell has been the platinum standard for models of color. In case you forgot why Campbell is special, her spread in the latest Vogue Italia will refresh your memory.

If this stunning statuesque model walked away from the catwalk for good her legend would be firmly secured. She made her first public appearance 30 years ago in the Bob Marley video, “Is This Love.” Her good looks secured her first modeling contract at the age of 15. Several months later, she graced the cover of Elle Magazine. Two years later, Campbell became the first Black model to appear on the cover of Vogue Paris. She also broke the cover color barrier for Vogue UK, Vogue Nippon and Time magazine.

But it was 1990s when she truly exploded into pop culture. She famously posed nude in Madonna’s “Sex” book along with rapper Big Daddy Kane. Campbell also appeared in music videos for the top artists of her day including George Michael, Michael Jackson, Nelly, Jagged Edge, Jay-Z, P. Diddy, The Notorious B.I.G., Macy Gray, Prince and Usher. But it was her modeling that remained her hallmark.

At her peak, Campbell was part of TWO major supermodel powerhouses: the “Big Six,” alongside Cindy Crawford, Claudia Schiffer, Christy Turlington, Linda Evangelista and Kate Moss, and “The Trinity,” alongside Turlington and Evangelista. In all this ebony erotic temptress has appeared on more than 500 magazine covers.

Campbell is the link between legendary Black supermodels Beverly Johnson and Iman to much younger contemporaries such as Tyra Banks. We have always been fans of this sexy long-legged, seductive beauty. Now 38, Campbell’s latest spread for Vogue Italia proves that much like fine wine, she continues age gracefully and sexually as well.

You work it – GIRL!!!!!
