Model of the month (2 of 3)

July's Model of the Month is Naomi Campbell.

I made Naomi Campbell this month's model of the month because she is without a doubt one of the most important black models of all time. Her flattish nose and very full lips and chocolate skin are proof of her West African heritage. The features that make her unattractive to some black people are the very features which are celebrated in high fashion.

Why is it that the high fashion world loves to celebrate the beauty of dark skinned black woman? Why not hiphop

As you can see this Chic's body is to die for.

Naomi whats your secret.

She proves that age is just a number and there is no reason for any of us to let things go without a fight.

This chic is so bad that Beyonce gave her shoutout in her song Get Me Bodied

Naomi or "Ne ne" burst on the scene in the late 80's. Unlike some of her fellow top models she did not spend years struggling as a up and coming model. She rose to the top ranks immediately. Some of her problems may be attributed to her quick rise to supermodel stardom in that she became rich and spoiled in such a short time that it destroyed some part(her innocence?) of her.

That said, I must say that I hope Naomi has learned her lesson and will no longer assault any more of her employees. You have to give it to her, she held her head high while surviving community service. On her last day she strutted out of that community center like a Queen.

You aint never lie when you said she is one of the most important black models of all time.

Naomi is gorgeous. I hope she eventually gets her attitude to match her outer beauty.

She really came off well in that pitiful episode of Tyra where Tyra wanted Naomi to apologize to her.

PS: Naomi appeared as a dancer in Culture Club's "I'll Tumble 4 Ya" video. She appears around 0:47. I think she's the 4th one from the left.

Another note: there's a new show on called "A Model Life" that comes on 10PM Fridays on TLC.

It's a competition like Top Model (six girls are vying for a contract with Next Models), except there's only one minority (a girl from Brazil who seems a little dim) and NO BLACKS! Travesty! I complained about it on a message board and was dismissed with "it's sad, but it represents the real industry." Whatever.
