2. Naomi Campbell

The biggest mistake people make regarding models is not only believing they would be arrogant but also judging them by the negative press coverage that attempts to encourage this view. Despite stories about her negative model behavior, Naomi Campbell has accomplished a lot and doesn’t seem to be quite done yet. The British model has been one of the most popular faces to appear on runways and magazines. She is especially important since she was the first black model to be presented on the covers of the British and French Vogue. And despite her 90s success she is still highly booked (D&G, Cavalli) and seen across magazines as much as in the 90s, if not more. Does the word ‘babe’ even account for ‘icon’? If you look at what she’s done, Naomi is without doubt iconic.
