Naomi lashes out at racist fashion industry
[an error occurred while processing this directive]Super model Naomi Campbell has accused the fashion industry of racism and is vowing to boycott designers who only use white models. Campbell, famous for being the first black model to grace the covers of the British and French 'Vogue" magazines, claims labels are using fewer "Black, Chinese and Hispanic" models than ever.

According to the 37-year-old model, she is disgusted and sad about the whole issue. Naomi says that fashion needs to go back to the way it used to be when wonderful designers like Yves St. Laurent, Gianna Versace and Azzedine Alaia just had a great line up of beautiful women White, Black, Chinese and Hispanic.

[an error occurred while processing this directive]Naomi claims that one particular fashion house refused her clothes, because they "already dress Beyonce". The super model says, "I've taken it upon myself to never wear that designer - it's such an ignorant thing to say."

Campbell is also boycotting an unnamed European designer she claims refuses to use non-White models in its shows. Meanwhile, Naomi has decided not to grace the catwalk in New York because she claims she "hasn't been asked".
