Naomi Will Soon Open Modeling Agency!!!

Veteran supermodel Naomi Campbell has gone on a mission around Africa to recruit more black supermodels.

The 37-year-old beauty has contacted scouts in Kenya to start looking for talent and plans to set up an agency in Nairobi.

Speaking in Kenya at the weekend (18-19Aug07), Campbell explains, "I believe there are pretty girls from your lovely country who can grace the international catwalk and the front pages of fashion magazines. "Anything which increases the pool of African talent is a good thing, but it will be a while before we see a big change in the industry."

Elite, the world's biggest modeling agency, set up an office in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi, four years ago (02), but it has since closed.

In Related News: Supermodel Naomi Campbell has criticized the editors of Vogue in her native Britain for not putting enough black models on the magazine's front covers.

Campbell, 37, also claims some of the modeling industry's biggest agencies ignore many black faces. The beauty says, "Black models are being sidelined by the major modeling agencies. It is a pity that people don't appreciate black beauty. "

Even myself, I get a raw deal from my own country in England. "For example, I hardly come on the front pages of the London Vogue magazine.

Only white models, some of whom are not as prominent as I am, are put on splash pages. I don't want to quit modeling until I find that black models get equal prominence and recognition by the world media and information instruments."

Campbell first appeared on the front cover of Vogue when she was a teenager in 1987 and last appeared five years ago (02).
