Naomi Campbell and Stefano Pilati cover I-D Magazine

12 07 2008

Crazy as she is, one of my all time favorite models Naomi Campbell has been in so many hot spreads lately I can’t keep up. I love this cover of her for the August issue of I-D magazine with Yves St. Laurent’s creative director, Stefano Pilati.

Last year Pilati made some “interesting” comments about his “difficulty” in putting black models on the runway due to their proportions. The comments to me makes it ironic that he is the creative director for Yves St. Laurent, who is recognized for putting women of color on the runway and even helped Naomi land her first cover of French Vogue.

That is a serious river of weave.. I love it thou.. That’s classic-Naomi. She’s been rocking the booty length weeve forever and a day.

Damn shame what it’s done 2 her hairline thou…

Anyhoo It’s interesting that Pilati is trying to use our proportions as a scapegoat for the lack of black chicks on the catwalk. Ok our booties are a bit bigger even when we’re 5’10 and a size 4.. We’re making the no-booty chicks look bad, so they are keeping us out.
