Talented Mert and Marcus captures Naomi Campbell & Kate Moss to the December cover story of both German and Russian Interview, the legendary supermodels were styled by Patti Wilson. Kate and Naomi also interview each other for the epic December edition.
KATE: I read that you made your first public appearance in a Bob Marley video.
NAOMI: Yeah. I was 7, I think. He was such a handsome man. I remember I started crying when I saw his dreadlocks because I thought they were worms. But he was really, really gentle.
KATE (on ethnic prejudice in the modeling world): When I first got to New York, I was like: “What are they talking about?”. I couldn’t tell, you know. It was really weird and also I think growing up in South London, it’s so mixed race.
NAOMI: Exactly, we just know our area and how we were raised, so it was a big eye opener to me.
KATE: Did it feel like a battle you were fighting? And are you still fighting for equality in fashion?
NAOMI: It felt… I can’t say that the word battle is the right word but it definitely felt like it was an uphill struggle for something. I felt like I had to do what I had to do for my race and to keep awareness out there.
