Naomi Campbell has accused British Vogue of snubbing her simply because she is black.

Naomi said: “I’ve never been on the cover of British Vogue and I’ve asked a million times and they’ve always refused me.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!”

She said: “The only time they care about black models is in February because it is Black History Month.

Personally, i think she raises a valuable point. Im a devoted reader of fashion magazines and its extremely rare to see any models other than the blonde blue eyed convention. Perhaps the size zero debate is shadowing the clear, remaining racism in the fashion industry.

But erm Ms Campbell…Black History Month is in October. And stop throwing shit at people you nutter.
