Naomi Campbell: Struggle with racism, gets angry over her daughter…

If you wanted to see how top model Naomi Campbell lives, she invites you to take a tour:

The ebony beauty Naomi Campbell, who later inspired generations of artists and worked for the most prestigious brands, was born in London to a dancer of Jamaican descent. She never knew her father. She was raised by her grandmother while her mother toured Europe with a dance troupe. Naomi later revealed that her moodiness and outbursts of anger were caused by her mother, who de facto abandoned her as a child. She made her first public appearance at the age of seven, appearing in the music video for Bob Marley’s song “Is This Love”, and at the age of ten she was accepted into the Italia Conti Academy of Theater Arts, where she studied ballet.

In 1986 she was spotted by Beth Boldt, head of the Synchro Model Agency, window shopping in Covent Garden and her fate was sealed. In April 1986, shortly before her sixteenth birthday, she appeared on the cover of Elle magazine. It was her first major commission and it rocketed her career. In December 1987, she became the first African-American woman to appear on the cover of the prestigious British Vogue, followed by French and American Vogue. At that time, she was already chasing her own dream and achieved what many girls from the suburbs only dreamed of. Together with Linda Evangelista and Christy Turlington, she formed the trio of the most sought-after models of her time.

Fighting racism and prejudice

Although everything seems like a cloud, Naomi did not have it easy at first, because she had to deal with racial prejudices. But she was able to speak up… Nevertheless, in an interview with Marc Jacobs for Interview magazine, she stated: “I should have spoken up more decisively, but when a person tried to do so, others stopped working with him.” She had great support in her friends Linda and Christy , which once presented the designer duo Dolce & Gabbana with an uncompromising ultimatum: “If you don’t want Naomi, you won’t get us either.” Naomi had support from the beginning with the designer Yves Saint Laurent, who was her mentor. Once he even threatened to pull his ad from a magazine that wouldn’t print Naomi’s photos.

From George Michael to Bono to Madonna, she has collaborated with all the stars of her peers to raise awareness about life on the African continent. Her relationship with South African President Nelson Mandela, who called her his “honorary granddaughter”, left an indelible mark. Since their first meeting in 1994, Naomi Campbell has become an ambassador for the continent. She is proud of her origins and shows it in her numerous projects.

A recipe for beauty

As Naomi Campbell herself says, if you want to be beautiful, you must also feel beautiful. “Surround yourself with people you love, don’t stress and carry things that make you happy and relieve you when you’re tired,” he makes no secret of his positive approach to life. She eats a healthy and balanced diet, you will never meet her in fast food. She drinks a lot of water, gets a manicure and pedicure once a week, uses moisturizing masks and creams, and also exercises. “I do yoga and pilates. I don’t go to the gym. I think it’s better to only exercise with your own weight,” he says.

She is problematic…

Naomi struggled with drug addiction for many years, and she was also infamous for scandals when she attacked people around her several times in anger. Because of one such scuffle with airport staff, she was even banned from flying with British Airways for life. Twenty-four-year-old Russian model Kira Dikhtyar, who met Naomi while filming the fashion reality show The Face, is said to have ended up seeing a psychiatrist because of Naomi. “She is a wonderful woman, but very difficult to work with. She poured all her negative energy only on me. When the shooting was over, they sent me to the doctors. I’m still recovering from it. And TV still pays for my psychiatrist,” Kira confided to the New York Post.

…but at the same time he helps where he can

It must be admitted that Naomi Campbell was able to use her fame as a top model. She herself lent her name to many charities and founded a foundation that helps in the fight against poverty. He actively fought against racism all his life, which was appreciated even by Nelson Mandela. And although she was also accompanied by scandals, including love and drug escapades, her loved ones claim that they can rely on her unconditionally. She herself says: “I’m not perfect, I’m not proud of everything I’ve done, but I won’t be held hostage by my past.” I still have a lot of work ahead of me.”

What is your favorite piece of fashion?

I don’t know if I could pick one favorite thing, but I have a penchant for accessories in general. Some of my very talented friends and designers create the most beautiful handbags that I can’t resist. I’m very lucky to know and love so many incredibly talented people, so I’m never far from fantastic accessories – shoes, bags or jewellery.

What trend do you think will never go out of style?

Self-confidence. The confidence to wear what you feel good in, no matter what. This is timeless.

What is your favorite season to dress up in?

I love statement coats; they’re such great investment pieces and it’s an opportunity to wear something that makes a statement or shows your personality, so let’s just say winter!
