Up until now, there are still a lot of people who are still talking about Kanye West and Kim Kardashian’s Vogue cover.  Now, let’s find out what a real model has to say about this.  When Naomi Campbell recently stopped by at “The Morning Show,” she was asked about her opinion on the controversial cover.  Before the super model could answer, she burst into laughter and said:

“I do not want to comment because I’m a fashion model and I’ve been working for 28 years. When you get a Vogue cover, it’s a build in your career. It’s a stepping stone to achieve that and you know, I’m a fashion model. What more can I say.”

Does Naomi think that Kim and Kanye have the right to be featured on the cover of Vogue?  She said:

“Those are your words. I’m being politically correct. That’s Anna Wintour’s choice to put them on the cover of her magazine. Who’s to question it?”

It seems that Naomi does not want to miss her chances in obtaining another Vogue cover.

What do you think?

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are featured on the cover of the latest issue of Vogue.  Aside from the famous couple, their adorable daughter was also included in the photo spread of the April 2014 issue of Vogue.  Before some fans of the famous fashion magazine will start to react or maybe cancel their subscriptions, Anna Wintour revealed the reason what made her decide to do this. She wrote:

“Part of the pleasure of editing Vogue, one that lies in a long tradition of this magazine, is being able to feature those who define the culture at any given moment, who stir things up, whose presence in the world shapes the way it looks and influences the way we see it. I think we can all agree on the fact that that role is currently being played by Kim and Kanye to a T. (Or perhaps that should be to a K?)”

“As for the cover, my opinion is that it is both charming and touching, and it was, I should add, entirely our idea to do it; you may have read that Kanye begged me to put his fiancée on Vogue’s cover. He did nothing of the sort. The gossip might make better reading, but the simple fact of the matter is that it isn’t true.”

“There’s barely a strand of the modern media that the Kardashian Wests haven’t been able to master, and for good reason: Kanye is an amazing performer and cultural provocateur, while Kim, through her strength of character, has created a place for herself in the glare of the world’s spotlight, and it takes real guts to do that.”

Isn’t it a beautiful advance wedding gift for the couple?

“I was sitting at a red light when this beauty @tannyfanny came up to my car to say hello :) She left a comment on an IG post that same day. When it came time to cast models for the shoot, I tracked her down! Was so awesome working with local #nola talent.”

 

Tanyell also post some inspiring words on her Instagram.  This message is not only intended for the models, but also for other individuals which are having their own dreams.  She said:

“I try to be appreciative and positive with every part of my life. From simple things such as being able to walk, to having a job, to waking up every morning…. I feel that mind set(faith) will open doors to even greater things that we don’t expect. Don’t focus on the greater things u want if u don’t believe in the littles things you have. .. Thank you Solange! @saintrecords”

Isn’t it a cute story?

“I’ve been on almost every magazine in existence, but this is my first time posing for Shape, and I’m thrilled. Of course.  I wish I had done it when I was younger, but it’s an honor to be here at any age.”

What is her secret in maintaining a perfect skin and body?  She revealed that she drinks a lot of green juice which is composed of green vegetables that are blended and juiced.  Yet, she did not regard this as starving herself:  Naomi explained:

“I don’t believe in starving myself. I’ve never done it, and I never will.  I’m even more active when I’m juicing, doing both yoga and Pilates every day.”

The supermodel further revealed that she also drinks hot water, steak, fish, lemon, along with abundant amounts of veggies and salads.  On most days, she does yoga and if she has only a limited time then she will do a 10 minute workout.

Solange Solange

Solange revealed her funky side on this month’s issue of Harper’s Bazaar.  She looked gorgeous while wearing several outfits created by famous designers such as a Ralph Lauren sweater dress, a Moshino jumpsuit as well as a $12,500 Chanel dress.  The photos were taken by Julia Noni.  Inside the magazine, Bey’s little sister revealed why she spends time in Cajun country so she can finish her new album.  She said:

“I figure there’s no better way to buckle down and finish it than to be as far away from everyone as possible, cell phone and computer behind. I’m not very good at writing songs when I have a lot of clutter in my mind.”

When it comes to following Beyonce’s footsteps, Solange reveals:

“My parents constantly tried to talk me out of being an artist,” she says. “They had gone through the whole journey with my sister and just wanted me to have a normal teenage life.”

What can she say about her failed relationship with her ex-husband Daniel Smith?  She said:

“In a lot of ways, emotionally and mentally, I feel far older than 27.  Just going through a marriage and a divorce—which I essentially did by 21—will give you an insane amount of perspective on life.”

“We co-parent really well.  I’m able to say, ‘I need to finish this album, can you step up and take care of the boy?’ “

She also revealed her thoughts with regards to fashion.  She said:

“You can pull images of me from seven to 14 years ago and I was absolutely nuts.  I have always been drawn to interesting pieces and colors, but I didn’t quite know how to limit myself and make those statement pieces work. It sounds silly, I know, but having space for my clothes made a huge difference. I was able to get organized, free myself of clutter, and develop a style that felt like me.”

Do you like her fashion sense?

Sanya Richards Ross Sanya Richards Ross

“It’s as hard or as easy as you make it. Because [Aaron] Ross and I started dating in college, I think we figured out what worked for us very early on. I met him and then just a month later, I traveled for a month to compete. He would stay with me a lot and I remember my sister said he would be in the house listening to slow jams. You know, missing me [laughs]. But it’s just been great. We encourage each other. We support each other. Absence makes the heart grow fonder. So, when he’s away at training camp, I miss him desperately and can’t wait to see him and vice-versa. I think it minimizes our fights [laughs] because we’re so excited to see each other most of the time. It’s awesome. It works well for us.”

How can she handle all of these?

Lupita Nyong’o Lupita Nyong’o

Actress Lupita Nyong’o is someone who can catch attention whenever she walks in the room.  She is someone who does not only possess beauty but also grace and style.  However, during her speech at Essence’s 7th Annual Black Women in Hollywood last night, she revealed how she was struggling in embracing her black skin.  She also admitted that she is hoping that one day she could have a lighter complexion.  The following is her speech:

“I want to take this opportunity to talk about beauty, black beauty, dark beauty. I received a letter from a girl and I’d like to share just a small part of it with you: “Dear Lupita,” it reads, “I think you’re really lucky to be this Black but yet this successful in Hollywood overnight. I was just about to buy Dencia’s Whitenicious cream to lighten my skin when you appeared on the world map and saved me.”

“My heart bled a little when I read those words, I could never have guessed that my first job out of school would be so powerful in and of itself and that it would propel me to be such an image of hope in the same way that the women of The Color Purple were to me.”

Lupita Nyong’o Lupita Nyong’o

“I remember a time when I too felt unbeautiful. I put on the TV and only saw pale skin, I got teased and taunted about my night-shaded skin. And my one prayer to God, the miracle worker, was that I would wake up lighter-skinned. The morning would come and I would be so excited about seeing my new skin that I would refuse to look down at myself until I was in front of a mirror because I wanted to see my fair face first. And every day I experienced the same disappointment of being just as dark as I was the day before.”

“And when I was a teenager my self-hate grew worse, as you can imagine happens with adolescence. My mother reminded me often that she thought that I was beautiful but that was no conservation, she’s my mother, of course she’s supposed to think I am beautiful. And then…Alek Wek. A celebrated model, she was dark as night, she was on all of the runways and in every magazine and everyone was talking about how beautiful she was. Even Oprah called her beautiful and that made it a fact. I couldn’t believe that people were embracing a woman who looked so much like me, as beautiful. My complexion had always been an obstacle to overcome and all of a sudden Oprah was telling me it wasn’t. It was perplexing and I wanted to reject it because I had begun to enjoy the seduction of inadequacy. But a flower couldn’t help but bloom inside of me, when I saw Alek I inadvertently saw a reflection of myself that I could not deny. Now, I had a spring in my step because I felt more seen, more appreciated by the far away gatekeepers of beauty. But around me the preference for my skin prevailed, to the courters that I thought mattered I was still unbeautiful. And my mother again would say to me you can’t eat beauty, it doesn’t feed you and these words plagued and bothered me; I didn’t really understand them until finally I realized that beauty was not a thing that I could acquire or consume, it was something that I just had to be.”

“And what my mother meant when she said you can’t eat beauty was that you can’t rely on how you look to sustain you. What is fundamentally beautiful is compassion for yourself and for those around you. That kind of beauty enflames the heart and enchants the soul. It is what got Patsey in so much trouble with her master, but it is also what has kept her story alive to this day. We remember the beauty of her spirit even after the beauty of her body has faded away.”

“And so I hope that my presence on your screens and in the magazines may lead you, young girl, on a similar journey. That you will feel the validation of your external beauty but also get to the deeper business of being beautiful inside.”

She ended the speech by saying:

“There is no shame in black beauty.”

Isn’t it an incredible speech?
