While Naomi Campbell is famous for being tactful, the supermodel kept it classy when asked about Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s “Vogue” cover.
When asked by Australia’s “The Morning Show” hosts about the magazine while promoting her reality series “The Face,” which she has covered a number of times, the outspoken star declined to answer – mostly.
“I do not want to comment,” she said at first, “Us Weekly” reports. When pushed, she responded diplomatically, saying, “I’m a fashion model and I’ve been working for 28 years. And when you get a ‘Vogue’ cover, it’s a build in your career, [it’s] a stepping stone to achieve that.”
The hosts asked if she believe they “haven’t earned the right,” but Naomi wasn’t having any of it.
“Those are your words – not mine,” she added. “I’m being politically correct. That’s Anna Wintour’s choice to put them on the cover of her magazine. Who’s to question it?”
In the editor’s letter, Wintour dispelled rumors that Kanye “begged” her to put them on the cover.
