BLACK HISTORY ISSUE: "The Drama Queen of the Catwalk Gets Her Crown" Naomi Campbell Honored by Elle

by Anita F. Hill

Naomi Campbell who has captured the public's eye for throwing cell phones and slapping people has turned over a new leaf! On February 22,2010, Naomi Campbell very candidly accepted the Outstanding Contribution Award at the Elle Style Awards, who has been doing her thing in the industry and making her mark on the catwalk for 25 years. Whether you love her or hate her, Naomi's achievements are undeniable.

Since the beginning of her modeling career at the age of 15 (now 39), this feisty chick has graced the covers of over 100 magazines, being the first black model to appear on the covers of the French and British Vogue, and Time Magazine. Though Naomi is known for her abusive behavior and divatude,many do not know that for over 10 years, Naomi has been a part of several charities to give back to the black/ African community, and has even worked with notables such as Nelson Mandela. Most recently, she organized a fashion show to benefit the earthquake survivors in Haiti.

WOW! Who knew that the strong-armed beauty is also a strong black woman who does have some beauty within.
