Naomi Campbell’s retirement is no secret to anyone. She’s made it clear, repeatedly, that she only stayed that long because of the overall white catwalks.
She who was supported by her fellow supermodels back in the days, the girls refusing a catwalk appearance unless Naomi came along, is preparing herself for a gracious career as a mother. Rumors about who will get to wear the Naomi crown started to fly from all four corners of the fashuniverse.
After the Fashion for Relief charity catwalk auction, Chanel Iman was suspected to be the chosen one. She appeared alongside Naomi, wearing the same Azzedine Alaia dress as Naomi’s, in white. Well, this time, for the Issa show, part of the London Fashion Week, Naomi flanked the designer Daniella Issa Helayel on one side and on the other all smiles and braids was none the other but Jourdan Dunn.
Who’s the next Naomi, then? Do you think she should have a contest-show “The Next Naomi” and choose a fresh face?
I understand why she likes to make a statement and leave the model scene gracefully. If thats the idea. To me Chanel Iman and Jourdun Dunn are great models in their own league. Not ‘a’ new or ‘the’ new Naomi. So no contests here…Chanel and Jourdun have proved themselves yet enough.
I agree with Adriana, there’s certainly room for both these gorgeous up-and-coming models to make a mark in the fashion biz!
There no longer has to be only one top Black model! So there is no next Naomi only more Chanels, and Jouduns!
Its time for this, no one wondered who the next Turlington or Evangelista, or Christensen or Crawford would be, so why this contest Kpriss?
