Naomi Campbell: Editor 'sacked' in racism row (UK)

 Naomi Campbell, the supermodel, claims that the editor-in-chief of a fashion magazine was sacked for putting her face on the front cover.

Naomi Campbell, who claimed last year that the advertising business was using the recession as an excuse to drop black models, has now gone even further in her accusations of racism.
The 40-year-old supermodel alleges that the boss of a fashion magazine was sacked after putting her on its front cover.

"One time, I went to Australia," she says. "The editor-in-chief of a magazine there told me that she got fired for putting me on the cover. I do remember going there and saying, 'Where's the Aboriginal model? There should be one. They're beautiful women.' "

Campbell, who does not name the journalist in question, has never been afraid to speak out about racism in the fashion business. In 2009, she alleged that major companies were refusing to use non-white women to promote their products.

"This year, we have gone back all the way that we had advanced,'' she said. "I don't see any black woman, or of any other race, in big advertising campaigns.''

In 1988, the Londoner appeared on the cover of French Vogue as its first black cover girl. Yves St Laurent, her late mentor, had threatened to withdraw all of his advertising from the magazine following its refusal to place Campbell, or any black model, on its front page. She also became the first black model to appear on the cover of British Vogue.
