Naomi Campbell – Black is Beautiful

Description:

Go to www.blackisbeautifulamsterdam.nl for more information and an online researchlab. Supermodel by Marlene Dumas is a litho of a beautiful black woman, British top model of Afro-Caribbean descent Naomi Campbell. High-spirited Naomi Campbell, who ranks among the worlds best known super models was the first black model to make the cover of Vogue. She was discovered at the age of 15 and had a successful and trail-blazing career. Despite all the wanted and unwanted attention she receives, she frequently complains about the lack of attention given to black models. “Black models are being sidelined by the major modelling agencies. It is a pity that people don’t appreciate black beauty”. In her 1994 novel Swan she sardonically writes that the dominant view in Europe is that black girls are better for summer clothes, as if they wear no clothing in winter! Shes militant and she is committed to fighting discrimination against black models. I dont want to quit modelling until I find that black models get equal prominence and recognition by the world media.
