Naomi Campbell calls out lack of diversity in British Vogue staff
Naomi Campbell is calling out the lack of diversity in the British staff at Vogue.
She posted an image of the staff from the September issue of the magazine, when editor-in-chief Alexandra Shulman was leaving, on Instagram. The picture shows a whole bunch of white men and women.
“This is the staff photo of @britishvogue under the previous editor #AlexandraSchulman,” Campbell captioned her post. “Looking forward to an inclusive and diverse staff now that @edward_enninful is the editor.”
The new editor, Edward Enninful, is a native of Ghana who was raised in London and will be the first non-white man to lead the magazine.
Already, Enninful has brought more diversity to the plate with a recent Gap campaign and the casting of the 2018 Pirelli calendar, which included all Black people. Campbell was part of that calendar.
“If you put one model in a show or in an ad campaign, that doesn’t solve the problem,” Enninful told Time last year. “We need teachers in universities, we need internships, we need people of different ethnic backgrounds in all parts of the industry. That really is the solution; you have to change it from the inside.”
