Supermodel Naomi Campbell is finally allowing viewers a glimpse into what it took to become a model and make a name for herself in her show ‘ Being Naomi’.
A supermodel and powerful businesswoman whose face has paved the way for so many women of colour in the fashion industry. Well, we shall wonder no more because the model has opened the veils through her reality show Being Naomi on YouTube.
The show premiered late last year and has been running since with interviews of the most
influential names in the fashion industry. In the show, Naomi removes the filter into her life in the industry and focuses strongly on the relationships she has formed through her work.
In her interview with Christy Turlington, we are let into a friendship that spans well over thirty years. It is like a behind the scenes look into the iconic images that the two women have appeared together in.
There is no doubt that these women shared beautiful chemistry when anyone looks at some of their campaigns. Her most recent interview was with supermodel and icon-in-the-making Adut Akech Bior.
This young woman is phenomenal to say the least. In 2019, aged 20 she was crowned Model of the year. We are introduced to Naomi’s more maternal side here as she dotes on the young model.
The bond and chemistry is unfiltered. Here are two women who share a genuine admiration for each other. Mother and daughter letting us into their experiences in the world of fashion, past the filters and retouched images. Especially as two women of colour navigating an industry whose beauty standards had neither of their features in mind during its conception.
These unfiltered interviews are also accompanied by wholesome content that the legendary
model has been sharing on Instagram since the dawn of the COVID-19 shutdown.
From her home workout regimes to spring cleaning her house and sharing safety tips, her daily live feeds have been on the pulse of the current world pandemic.
So if you are lacking on things to do during these times, take a closer look at the supermodel’s IG. You might learn a thing or two on being Naomi Campbell.
