Iris1000 7 years Fiend, I agree with you on that one. I remember reading at one time that Naomi had had Tyra removed from a Carl Lagerfield Chanel show. It brings up the question of why she is even making statements as though she is concerned about other black models at all. Is the real problem that she is not getting called for work? ashante_l 7 years hmm idk she is a great model so idk Fiend 7 years i just want to point out the hypocrisy of her statement of why she won't retire; wasn't she the same person who was black listing Tyra Banks when she was the new up and coming black model?? And i remember she made some stupid comment that British Vogue(? im not sure if it was Vogue or Vanity Fair) never put her, a British black model on their cover, and a blogger pointed out that she had been on their cover a couple of years earlier. SHe is always pulling the race card when she thinks its convenient and will get her sympathy. She should just admit she is in it for the money, and as long as she is still wanted she will keep doing it. Hate Her. nina_e 7 years as long as she's still getting work, what's the point of retiring? Plus MORE ETHNIC MODELS! I'll broaden my statement skigurl 7 years she's totally crazy, but still hot why would she retire supergurl 7 years I'm with you, Lala77. I don't know who makes me barf more Mariah or Naomi Campbell. I never thought she was beautiful and FOR GOD'S SAKE SHE'S LOOSING HER HAIR, PEOPLE. i'd rather see some fresh faces. Ditto for Kate Moss. Hang it up, ladies. Lala77 7 years Can't believe I can dislike someone more than Mariah :( Jude-C 7 years Why should she quit if she can still work? Le-Luxe 7 years She can still work it- so why not? Still gorgeous baby! bleached 7 years She may be crazy but she is a really great model. Her face isn't expressionless and empty like some of the vacant models today. WORK IT NAOMI! EkaterinaBallerina 7 years She might be a complete psycho in real life, but she's an absolutely fantastic model. Her spread in Italian Vogue was stunning. She should do it for as long as she can! I doubt her retiring will have an effect on the lack of black models on the runway. And furthermore, ageism here?!? She looks better than ever at her age and I find it impressive that she's stayed so long in an industry notorious for its ageism. simplyfab87 7 years As crazy as she is, she is still fab. She should not retire bastylefilegirl 7 years Ummm she looks great, can still strut looks like she has barely aged I say no. freegracefrom 7 years Why should she retire? She's got a great job and she's still getting jobs obviously. baltimoregal 7 years I don't know that Naomi Campbell is a great representative for black models! She has been mean to other black models in the past... HipMom 7 years She looks good and she has a point - why should she retire? She is kind of obnoxious, but that doesn't disqualify her ;-) RoyalBlueMoss 7 years Why should she stop? Because she's over 30?? There shouldn't ever be a retirement age for models. kerish 7 years ....Is there a retirement age for models? ........the new black models are younger,does that mean they attract a different type of contract than she would? ........... she still looks good but I would love to see her trying something new.... sophia247 7 years she is a realy gd model Rnicolew 7 years Shes hotter than ever now, and she's right, there arent enough black models in the industry, losing her would be tragic! rabidmoon 7 years As long as she can get work and look good, why not? What I do wish she'd do is stop losing the plot and going off on people. :P Its tacky. JaeB 7 years Uh, why should she? She still does it well. And it's...what she does. She's fine as a model. As long as she still gets hired, why not? Even if there were more black models, I don't think there'd be a reason for her to retire yet. sundaygreen 7 years she bores me.
