Naomi Campbell positively glistens on the cover of Pride magazine’s Decadent issue. Looking like a glacial queen in a pastel coloured couture gown, the magazine landed an exclusive interview with the reclusive supermodel. I’m very hot and cold when it comes to Naomi. Career wise, I can’t fault her. She’s probably the most successful Black British female there is, and despite being in her forties can still bulldoze the new generation of models off the catwalk.
I remember seeing her sashay down the catwalk years ago and being mesmerised by the rhythm in her walk and the power and confidence she transmitted. However, whenever I watch or read interviews with her, I’m disturbed by her refusal to acknowledge mistakes from her past. Ms Campbell’s propensity to blame all her past phone throwing, bitch slapping misdemeanours on her ‘Daddy issues’ seems infantile, and I’d love for her to get past that and flourish into a women who is in full control of her life professionally and emotionally. That said, I look forward to reading the article as I know how rare it is for her to speak to the press. The magazine is out now.
