HAWT BLACK MODEL FACT ~ Naomi Campbell

This Jamaican-English catwalk queen is arguably the greatest Black supermodel on the planet. Soon after a fifteen-year-old Campbell was “discovered” while shopping in London’s Covent Garden, she landed the April 1986 cover of Elle. Two years later, she became the first black model to grace the cover of Paris Vogue—but only after Yves St. Laurent threatened to withdraw his advertising after it refused to place Campbell, or any black model, on the pages (how much do we love YSL?). The rest, as they say is “herstory.”
