Supermodel 101: Naomi Campbell

Few people have experienced such loss as Naomi Campbell. Working with every major fashion house from the 80’s on, she’s had to suffer through the suicide of Alexander McQueen, the murder of Gianni Versace and the death of Azzedine Alaia (tips of the icebergs). Still she’s endured. This woman taught me how to drag people to the library to get read. Her career is nothing short of iconic, 1/3 of “The Trinity” (which will get a tribute later), in countless music videos from Michael Jackson, Jay-Z, Madonna to George Michaels, her infamous feud with fellow supermodel Tyra Banks, the level of major she’s been in court (this fee is an insult to my wealth… I really don’t want to be here right now, but I’m forced to be so…), that model competition show where she read that girl to tears and the other judges, just an astounding career from a formidable woman. She can throw a phone at me anytime. Naomi Campbell’s walk is so acclaimed that even her falls (Vivienne Westwood) are major. Thank you for showing us how to kill the game. What I’ve learned from her the most, is know your worth and put people in their place if they try you. Photos: Naomi’s Insta

Peter Lindbergh 1944-2019

RIP Peter Lindbergh the German photographer who captured the rise of the 90’s supermodel (the most prolific era of modeling EVER). “This should be the responsibility of photographers today; to free women, and finally everyone, from the terror of youth and perfection.”
