Outside it's diamonds and fur, inside Mert & Marcus go for a "wilder" look.

Fetch, I know you have more to say about this shoot than that. I mean it's nice, but aren't you tired of Naomi being naked? And there's animal print!

Naomi IS naked all the time. I mean she has a great body, if I had her body my neighbors would know me as "that chick that wears a bikini to take out the trash," but really she was in lingerie in Mexican Vogue last month, showing her booty in Vanity Fair, in various state of undress in July's Italian Vogue and now topless again.

The only other top model I can think of who is nude so often is Kate Moss and I think Naomi still has her beat.

I guess the "I'd rather go naked than wear fur" ad she did for PETA was just for publicity because clearly, girlfriend does both and OFTEN.

Naked or not, Naomi is fabulous. Models like her are truly a dying breed.

I know Naomi is bananas but glad to see her rocking it at her age. Who says models are "done" at 25? She is almost 40.

I hear you. If I had her body I might walk everywhere naked. ha I forgot she did a PETA ad. She is always wearing fur!

I like the cover, despite her Photoshopped skin tone.

Beautiful cover picture of Naomi.

Naomi had a Russian Vogue cover not to long ago.I noticed she has had a few Dutch Vogue covers. She must sell a lot in those countries.

BTW, Russian Vogue has a lot of nice outfit inspiration pages and editorials, but not the sort of edgy editorials Italian and Paris Vogue are known for.

@chic noir

They do seem to love her in Russia, she seems to pop up in a lot of magazines over there. I wonder if she's still dating/engaged to that Russian guy.

Brigitte, as far as I am aware of she is. I notice that some of the fashion ads in Russian Vogue use blk modles too. I wonder why since the blk population in Russia is small.Naomi had another Russian Vogue cover less than 18 months before this one.

the whole thing baffles me because Russia is not none to be friendly towards black people. In fact, the disdain for black people in Russia is overwhelming. A handful of African students studying in Russia are murdered every year, due to hate crimes and the authority brushed it off. Two students from Cameroon, were attacked on the streets of Moscow and killed. We are still waiting for justice. But then again, fashion is never a reflection of reality. size zero women, All black vogue Italia but we all know the treatment of black people in Italy etc. etc.
