Naomi Campbell forgets that she’s been a Vogue cover girl

It’s probably a good thing Naomi Campbell doesn’t ply her trade in an industry which requires her to check her facts before making accusations. The black British model reportedly said that British Vogue is racist because they have never put her on their cover.

“They’ll put the same white model for half the year — I swear like six times, but wouldn’t put me on once in my own country. But I still want my British Vogue cover,” said Naomi while discussing racial discrimination on the catwalk recently.

She also said she appeared on the cover of French Vogue only because Yves Saint Laurent “called up … and told them he’d pull his ads if they didn’t. So of course I got the cover.”

If you check’s Cover archive, you will see that Naomi has graced the cover of UK Vogue eight times since 1987, five times solo, once with P Diddy, and twice with various other models. Maybe the “same white model” she’s talking about is model buddy Kate Moss who’s appeared on the cover 24 times since 1993…

The British Vogue cover count for other top models Naomi could be talking about:

Amber Valletta: 9 (covers)
Angela Lindvall: 5
Carolyn Murphy: 4
Christy Turlington: 9
Cindy Crawford: 6
Claudia Schiffer: 2
Elizabeth Hurley: 4
Gemma Ward: 3
Gisele Bundchen: 12
Helena Christensen: 3
Linda Evangelista: 13
Natalia Vodianova: 5
Stella Tennant: 4

    She is a total embarrassment to herself. Another reason why designers and magazines are turning to actresses to promote their products.

    She is going on about being black now, but back in the day she had no problem being as nasty as she possibly could to Tyra Banks and other up and coming black models as she wanted to be the ONLY black model on the catwalk. So I am disgusted she is using the race card now.

    If she had more dignity and self control like Tyra Banks she would have another outlet to extend her career instead of being a washed up ex con.

    How embarressing. God that woman should know when to stop/shut up.
