*Black supermodel Naomi Campbell lashed out at the fashion industry last week for not using more Black models.
The 40-year-old Campbell acknowledged that things have improved since she first hit the catwalk in the 1980s but she told London’s Evening Standard that the use of women of color has actually appeared “to go backwards.”
The British-born Campbell cited the example of one major fashion show which recently “used 81 models and didn’t use one of us.”
The often fiery Campbell added, “We need to raise awareness again and need to start using women of color more.”
The highly paid Campbell said she was speaking up not so much for herself but for the younger Black women seeking careers in modeling.
