Islandista cover girls – Naomi and Zoe

Two very different islandistas are covering the latest editions of two very different magazines.  The amazonian and fiery Jamaican-Brit Naomi Campbell is on the Fall/Winter 09 cover of Flaunt magazine in a vivid, colour-drenched and dramatic shoot by star photog David LaChapelle entitled ‘The Rape of Africa’.  Some folk are pissy that you can see her nipple … like […]
