Super model, Naomi Campbell who also doubles as a contributing editor for British Vogue is on the cover of the March edition of the magazine. Inside, the magazine’s editor-in-chief, Edward Enninful discusses his relationship with Naomi.
On when he first met Naomi
“I was a young fashion director and Naomi was already famous well beyond the industry, but we bonded on sight. After the shoot wrapped, she invited me to jump on a private plan to Dublin with her. I was due back in London and had only £10 in my pocket but that’s just the way it is with Naomi. A quarter of a century later and she hasn’t changed. You never know where you’re going to end up.”
“There has been so much written about her over the years, but I think many would be surprised to discover how loyal and generous she is. As a friend, she is kind and very sensitive, yet at the same time she is a fighter; Jamaican, a buffalo solider, who stands up for herself. To me, she will always be a legend, like the last of the silent movie stars: Greta Garbo, Marlene Dietrich, Naomi Campbell. With all the flashbulbs, the fashion, the entourages, the jets, the philanthropy, the red carpets and the world leaders on speed dial, she seems to live at twice the pace of the rest of us. All the clichés genuinely do apply to Naomi – you could not make her up and she really is larger than life.”
