Naomi Campbell and Stefano Pilati on i-D Magazine



She really is everywhere right now. YSL seems to be making the most of this collaboration. I think her skin looks flawless here but her positioning is a little...odd.

She was on the cover of ID a few months ago after the American Appreal blackface(?) ad, I think?

Good for her.

Oh Lord, my head still hurts when I think about that AA photo.

Sigh, Naomi you bore me.

Her skin is beautiful, the pose is a bit awkward and I don't dig the Rapunzel wig @ all.

I wonder of she will ever retire from modeling?

Chic Noir said...

@sdg1844- I saw an interview where she said she would not. I find it funny how her fellow supermodels had retired, had children and have returned to modeling, while Naomi keep on going.

I think one of the reasons Naomi continues to model is because she doesn't want anyone to replace her as THE go-to Black model.

Brigitte said...

She is the go-to black model but at the same time I don't really think YSL would have used another black model in her place. I love Naomi but I would like to see someone else in the spotlight every now and then. She's getting as overexposed as Kate Moss at this point.

I love Naomi!

She may not be the best role model, but she's one of mine and represents some of the few black stars Britain has to offer.

I can't blame her for wanting to model for as long as she can after all we as individuals would love to stay in our chosen profession for as long as possible and be successful with it. Whether she monopolises the fact that she is the go-to black model, is something I can’t begrudge either. If I’m successful in my profession and everyone is coming to me, I’d love it and want it to continue, it’s up to others within the same profession to fight to be better and gain the recognition I have.

…Other than that having seen the cover several times and um’ed and ahh’ed as to whether I like it, I agree Naomi’s body positioning is not quite right, yet at the same time I like it more each time I see it. There's something about the composition of the cover that can be interpreted in so many ways that I find it hard to only focus on one thing!
