A major magazine cover shoot is normally something that takes a ton of people coordinating together, but with the current situation, that just is not possible. That did not stop supermodel Naomi Campbell, however, who shot her own cover photo by herself on her phone.
Both Essence Magazine and Naomi Campbell turn 50 years old this year, and to celebrate, the magazine wanted to feature her on the cover, but of course, the current situation makes a traditional cover shoot impossible. Undeterred, Campbell forged on, doing her own hair, makeup, and styling and then photographing herself using her iPhone. She called it "a very special honor and unusual experience."
She went on to say that "We are rooted in knowledge and creativity and continue to take back full control of our narratives. We will come out of this stronger than ever." It is certainly some impressive ingenuity, and hopefully, we will see companies find ways to involve other creatives for the time being.
