WATCH: Naomi Campbell on Diversity, Dolce & Gabbana, and Linda Evangelista

Naomi Campbell Linda Evangelista

A strong advocate for more diversity in fashion, supreme supermodel Naomi Campbell recently sat down with Style.com to share her hope for a more inclusive style industry.

The 45-year-old (gag!), who was read for filth by Empire's Cookie on what turned out to be the show's best episode, is still vocal about the lack of models of colors on the runway. 

When she joined the Diversity Coalition campaign initiated by legendary models Iman Bowie and Bethann Hardison, Campbell contributed to a new movement that pushed advertisers, fashion designers, and magazine editors to use more diverse talent.

But there is still work. The model cites her own experience, when she became the first black model to appear in a Dolce & Gabbana campaign -- thanks to Linda Evangelista, apparently.

Watch the video below.
