You're more composed, when you're working on the runway. Because, you know, you're working. You're doing a show, you're showing the new collections of whatever designer you're working for. Where as working on the red carpet, it's you, who you are as a person. Even though you are, and could be still working for a designer. It's still, it's live, it's more you, it's your personality. That's how I look at it. It's two different things. I think most of the red carpet moments that I've loved, is when I've been with other girls of my generation, and we've gone down together. I don't really take it all that seriously. I just try to have fun. And the red carpet, really, is a fun thing to So my personal style is hectic. I can't tell from one day to another what I'm going to wear. I could put a vintage dress from the 30's, I could wear something from present day. It really depends on my mood and what I feel like wearing and. Well, I pulled out the storage.
Naomi Campbell has called out Elle Germany after the outlet published a feature about Black models titled "Black Is Back."
"I’ve said countless of times we are not a TREND," she wrote. "We are here to STAY. It’s ok to celebrate models of color but please do it in an ELEGANT and RESPECTFUL way."
Campbell wrote that in her career, she's seen other Black models mistaken for her.
"Do you know what it feels like to do the job (@naomichinwing) and not even be given the right name credit?" she wrote. "Very disappointing to say the least. If you would like a conversation to know how to have a diverse mind we are here to sit and accommodate."
She concluded: "It’s very important for a publication to be culturally sensitive and give credit where it’s due. We all need to unite on this matter."
Elle Germany released a statement on Instagram on Wednesday, writing, "In our current issue we approach the colour black from different angles. One of our focuses was to feature strong black women who work as fashion models. In doing so, we were guilty of several errors for which we sincerely apologize."
"It was wrong to use the cover line 'Back to black' which could be misconstrued to mean that black individuals are some sort of fashion trend," the statement continued. "This obviously was not our intention and we regret not being more sensitive to the possible misinterpretations. Misidentifying the model Naomi Chin Wing as Janaye Furman is a further error for which we apologize. We are aware of how problematic this is. This has definitely been a learning experience for us and, again, we deeply regret any harm or hurt we have unwittingly caused."
