You’d think that with all of her milestones and legendary status, Naomi Campbell would have tons of beauty campaign under her belt but, that is not the case. The 48-year-old British supermodel has only just landed her first beauty campaign in her over 30 years of modelling, and it’s with NARS Cosmetics.
The announcement was made on both the cosmetic brand and Naomi’s Instagram pages with a stunning beauty shot of her.
According to Francois Nars, “Naomi is a living icon and brings such strong personality to the camera. She and I are like family. I have known her since the very beginning of her career. From the start, I have admired her, her beauty, and her style.”
Now to the issue of why she has never fronted a beauty campaign: Naomi has inferred on multiple occasions that she’s been discriminated against because of the colour of her skin. She told Evening Standard in 2017, “I’ve never done [a beauty campaign] for anyone. People say, ‘Oh you’ve got beautiful skin’ and yet I’ve never done one.”
