Even the supermodel Naomi Campbell also faced the racial discrimination from the top brands during her brightest period of the career When faced with racial discrimination, Campbell received support from her white friends; she later quoted Turlington and Evangelista as telling Dolce & Gabbana, “If you don’t use Naomi, you don’t get us.”
Dolce and Gabbana underwent sharp and fierce criticism in response to their actions. Soon after in December 1987, she appeared on the cover of British Vogue, as that publication’s first black cover girl since 1966. In March 1991, in a defining moment of the so-called supermodel era, Campbell walked the catwalk for Versace with Turlington, Evangelista and Crawford, arm-in-arm and lip-synching the words to “Freedom! ’90”. This was the epic event in the long history of her career.
