Naomi is one of the original “big five” fashion models who were photographed on the streets of New York by the visionary photographer Peter Lindbergh.
That 1989 image became the cover of the January 1990 issue of British Vogue and heralded the birth of the supermodel.
The five models on the iconic cover were seen by George Michael who asked them to appear in the video for “Freedom 90” and introduced supermodels to MTV audiences globally.
Along with Linda & Christy, Naomi was part of what became known as “The Trinity” – the three widely-recognised fashion models of the supermodel era.
Naomi scored her first British Vogue cover in December 1987 and, whilst she is the second Black model to appear on the cover of the magazine, she is the first to not have had her face obscured.
Naomi was the first Black model to appear on the cover of French Vogue and the first to appear on the important September issue of American Vogue.
With her fashion success, Naomi has managed to raise awareness of various charities and social issues, including the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund, Breakthrough Breast Cancer, We Love Brazil, Fashion for Relief, and White Ribbon Alliance for Safe Motherhood,
As well as modelling, Naomi has appeared in numerous productions – just some of Naomi’s acting credits include “Empire”, “Girl 6”, “Star”. “I Feel Pretty”, “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air”, and “American Horror Story”. Naomi was the head-judge in “The Face” and had cameos as herself in “Absolutely Fabulous” with Joanna Lumley & June Whitfield, and “Ugly Betty”.
30 years on from that January 1990 cover, Naomi is still modelling – on catwalks, in editorial, and in campaigns – as well as contributing to British Vogue under the fresh stewardship of Edward Enninful.
