There’s no denying the fierceness that is Naomi Campbell.
One of the original “Big Five” supermodels, Campbell has been modeling since she was 15 and has graced the covers of over 500 magazines during her multi-decade career.
At the Glamour Celebrates 2017 Women of the Year event held in New York City at Brooklyn Museum, 47-year-old Campbell was in attendance looking absolutely amazing!
The supermodel wore a gorgeous asymmetrical polka dot blouse with a plunging neckline, black wide-legged flare pants, and platform boots.
Her 90’s-chic look was perfectly accented with a sleek and simple bob haircut and a thick black choker.
Campbell’s appearance at the event happened shortly after she spoke out against critics of newly appointed Vogue editor, Edward Enninful. She stated that criticism of Enninful was racist and due to a vendetta against him.
Enninful, 45, was appointed editor-in-chief of Vogue earlier this year after Alexandra Shulman resigned after 25 years in the position.
He is the publication’s first black and first male editor in Vogue’s 101-year history. One of his first moves in his new position was to make Campbell a contributing editor.
Criticism of his appointment arose due to Enninful’s lack of journalistic experience as well as his fondness for partying with A-list stars.
Shulman appeared to take shots at Enninful and his Instagram page in an article she wrote last month, writing, “The new guard of editors… will be less magazine journalists and more celebrities or fashion personalities with substantial social media followings. It’s certainly not a job for someone who … thinks that the main part of their job is being photographed in a series of designer clothes with a roster of friends.”
Defending Enninful, Campbell said: “I’m not pleased at how he [Enninful] has been treated. I’ve been in this business for 31 years, and I’ve never seen anything like this in my life. I find it racist.”
Seemingly alluding to Shulman’s article, she claimed Enniful had “got the job fair and square”.
She told The Guardian, “He has worked in this business for many years. It’s like a vendetta.”
Campbell was the first black model to appear on the cover of TIME magazine, French Vogue, and Russian Vogue as well as the first British black model to appear on the cover of British Vogue.
Still, as stunning as ever, Campbell doesn’t appear to be giving up her reign as a fashion queen anytime soon!
