“Keep a punk-inspired look chic with classic heels.”
exclusive NAOMI CAMPBELL behind-
This issue celebrates fashion’s rebellious new spirit, following punk’s glorious runway return. From studs and plaid at Givenchy and Versace to leather jackets and spiky ankle boots at Saint Laurent, there were references galore to this anarchic period, even if most designers gave it a modern ladylike twist.
Beautiful and rebellious are two words that could definitely be attributed to this week’s cover star, Naomi Campbell. However, her appearances on the US and now the UK version of model show The Face marks a new period in the British supermodel’s life. Ms Campbell talks mentoring, maturity and fighting for racial equality in the fashion industry, while showcasing some of the season’s most standout lady-punk hits from Versace, Gucci and Altuzarra.
