Naomi Campbell Shot Essence Magazine Cover with iPhone
Written by olucapri on May 21, 2020
In celebration of Essence magazine’s 50th birthday, supermodel Naomi Campbell recently made history by shooting her own cover for Essence magazine, in isolation with her iPhone.
Happy Birthday, Essence! (Incidentally, a couple of days later, GQ America published its cover with Robert Pattinson, who also shot his own GQ cover and spread but with a Nikon DSLR.)
Naomi Campbell has always been a natural cultural leader of the pack. A mover and shaker. The iPhone of smartphones. The TikTok of silly dances. So it’s no wonder she was the first to make this history. What else can this icon of fashion, culture, and inclusion, teach us about remaining relevant, and engaging younger audiences?
