Naomi channels her rage in this poignant ad which addresses the discussion of diversity, or the lack thereof, in the modeling industy. The ad was produced by fashion photographer Nick Knight. The silence is deafening...

...But, due in large part to the efforts of Bethann Hardison--agent, former model, mother of actor Kadeem Hardison and the person who discovered Tyson Beckford--that silence is being broken. It's encouraging to see so many industry titans protest the dearth of black models. The all-Black Vogue Italia issues and discussions lead by Iman and many others is heartening, but it will be even more interesting to see what happens on the runways this fall! I can't wait!

P.S. - Naomi's wearing Rodarte (both dresses)!
