Naomi Campbell talks about Using Fashion to Champion Charity on the cover of ELLE USA’s New Issue



Supermodel Naomi Campbell joins Gisele Bundchen, Doutzen Kroes, and Anja Rubik as the latest cover stars for ELLE USA‘s July 2019 Conservation Issue.

ELLE’s new edition aims to celebrate and raise awareness of women making a difference in climate change—from marine biologists to supermodels.

Naomi, who was in Lagos earlier in the year and spoke about using her platform for philanthropy, shed more light on her humanitarian work; from the Fashion for Relief show for Hurricane Katrina to the #Togetherband campaign, a partnership between the UN Foundation, Bottletop Foundation, UBS, Eco-Age, Project Everyone, and to work toward the UN’s 17 global goals for sustainable development.
