The Fashion Awards 2019: Naomi Campbell Revealed Her Fashion Icons

Presented with the Fashion Icon Award by Sir Jony Ive, Naomi Campbell took a moment to reflect on the significance of her win.

“I learned today that I’m the first woman of colour to receive this award,” she mused.

“That leaves me to say who I consider my style icons: Grace Jones, Josephine Baker, Eartha Kitt, Donyale Luna, Bethann Hardison, Naomi Sims, Dorothy Dandridge, Diana Ross, Diahann Carroll, Janet Jackson, and Tina Turner…

“I could go on and on, but I want to thank you for paving the way for me and inspiring a generation.”
