Naomi Campbell is not handing over the supermodel throne anytime soon. At 45-years-old, the British model has been in the game for 30 years and 2016 has been quite the year for her. From giving us 90’s nostalgia with the Balmain Army to her role on Empire to now, the cover of Vogue Brasil.
Naomi Campbell is a trailblazer. She was the first black woman to ever be on the cover of Vogue Magazine for the coveted September issue back in 1989. It was Anna Wintour‘s first September issue with the magazine and she remembers,
“She was wearing this orange Anne Klein sequin suit – it would probably look incredibly ’80s today. And we have this meeting every month where we present the issue to the corporate floor, and I remember all the men in suits being absolutely stunned by the fact that I would put a black woman on the September cover of Vogue.”
27 years later…Naomi is still slaying the cover game. For Vogue Brasil, the stunning supermodel dances in a handpainted Valentino garment. She’s wearing her hair in a 50’s style bouffant and styled by Pedro Sales. This fun, flirty, and fashionable pose gives us an air of the sexy yet playful Brazilian vibe. Check out some of the looks from behind the scenes.
Naomi is fashion perfection, we all know this. What we want to know is: girl, where is that fountain of youth?!
