Naomi Campbell may be one of the most successful supermodels today, but she had a particularly uphill battle to climb.
In a new Apple TV+ documentary series called The Super Models, Naomi opened up alongside fellow stars Christy Turlington, Linda Evangelista, and Cindy Crawford about her rise to fame. And she couldn’t help but praise her friends for all they did to help her get to where she is today!

Still all too real today as white supremacism rears its ugly head again, and unfortunately it DOESN’T have any geographical limitations. But back to the ’80s… While the author wasn’t willing to let racism stop her, she realized instantly there was truth to what she’d been told:
But even just her daily life was a struggle at times — and she benefited greatly from her friendship with two fellow future supermodels: Christy and Linda! She said:
Ugh, so terrible.
The one good thing to come of this was that the models went on to live together and form a long-lasting friendship. Naomi now considers Christy and Linda “sisters” for the way they both stood up for her
