As one of the most recognizable faces in the fashion world, Naomi Campbell holds a great deal of influence in the industry. A case in point? After commenting about the lack of model diversity during London Fashion week, we saw a great deal of Asian and black models walking at the Milan Fashion Week a few weeks later.

Although she is known for her feisty personality, we say kudos to Ms. Campbell as she aims to promote a more diverse runway!

When it comes to her own style, it looks as though Naomi is not straying too far away from her beloved Alexander McQueen. She wore the British brand to the screening of her show, ‘The Face’, showing up in a white jacket and a white skirt.

She changed into a black leather dress, also by Alexander McQueen, for the show’s after-party held at the Greenhouse Restaurant in London. She paired both ensembles with Alaia ankle boots.

Could the change from the white suit to the black leather dress also reflect her strong views on diversity? Whatever her reasons were, we think she looks smashing in both outfits!
