Last season, British GQ ran a story about the electric intelligence of Naomi Campbell. Tomorrow might be her chance to prove it's true. The legendary model is slated to sit on a panel called "Blacks in Fashion," along with Andre Leon Talley, Robin Givhan, Damon Dash and Tracy Reese. According to the organizers, the fashion heavyweights will address questions like, "In an industry supposedly dictated by beauty and style, why are certain groups granted limited access? Why is the fashion model of color categorized by race? Why is this generation of Black models nearly invisible?" We hope Naomi does address that last question, especially since every time an emerging model is black, she's called "The Next Campbell" ... something that's always bugged us, since neither Gerren Ford nor Chanel Iman actually look like her. The panel happens tomorrow at 10:30 AM, in the Bryant Park Hotel, and on a vague side note: the first 10 models at Heatherette were all black.
