There have been many famous models over the years, but there has only been one Naomi Campbell. The supermodel defined a decade of fashion with her iconic walk, impeccable style, and enviable friendships. She also shattered barriers from the very beginning of her career.
In 1988, she became the first black model on the cover of French Vogue. A year later, she was the first black model on the cover of British Vogue, appearing with Christy Turlington, Linda Evangelista, Cindy Crawford, and Tatjana Patitz.

In more recent years, she's been awarded prestigious honors, including the CFDA's 2018 Fashion Icon Award and the 2019 British Fashion Council's Icon Award. She also started an incredible YouTube channel that is a must-watch.
