From Catwalk Queen:
Fed up with a lack of black models in the fashion industry, Naomi Campbell has spoken out about her frustration by criticising magazine editors.
“Black models are being sidelined by the major modelling agencies,” she said at a press conference in Malindi, Kenya, where she is currently on holiday.
Five years after her last cover for British Vogue, Campbell highlighted the racial inequality amongst the fashion industry and the media.
“I even get a raw deal from my own country. For example, I hardly come on the front pages of London’s Vogue magazine. Only white models, some of whom are not as prominent as I am, are put on the front pages,” she said.
