Naomi Campbell Calls Out Posh Spice For Using Almost All White Models

CelebritiesDirt Bag

Naomi Campbell, who awesomely heads up the fashion industry advocate group Diversity Coalition, which calls for more people of color in fashion shows, had to turn her keen eye on her VERY OWN BEST FRIEND, Victoria Beckham. (Okay, they’re not best friends, I don’t think, but they’re celebrity friends which means they’ve probably met at least once.)

Supermodel Naomi Campbell called out her friend Victoria Beckham for only having one model of color in her presentation during February’s New York Fashion Week.
But Campbell revealed to the UK’s Daily Mirror that she phoned the Spice Girl-turned-fashion designer personally about the matter.

Team Campbell. (Which I almost always am. Except for when she has a hair brush.) (Is that what happened?) Anyway, it seems like a perfectly reasonable response to an insidious issue, and it’s cool that she’s able/willing to talk openly about it with her powerful friends. Posh, slam those stereotypes down and wind our expectations all around! (Sorry.) [NY Post]

Nicole Kidman speaks up about her marriage to Xenu’s #1 Henchman.

“I was so young,” Nicole Kidman tells Vanity Fair contributing editor Sam Kashner in the December-issue cover story, reflecting back on her marriage to Tom Cruise when she was just 23 years old. “And you know, with no disrespect to what I had with Tom, I’ve met my great love now. And I really did not know if that was going to happen. I wanted it, but I didn’t want it for a while, because I didn’t want to jump from one relationship to another. I had a lot of time alone, which was really, really good, because I was a child, really, when I got married. And I needed to grow up.”

BUT HOW MUCH DID HE PAY FOR YOU??? God, celebs will never give us the dirt we’re owed by existing on this planet. Jesus. Sorry, I mean Xenu. [Vanity Fair]

(I don’t have a kid, but you know.) [Daily Mail UK]
