Naomi Campbell on Her Versace Juice Cleanse & Continuing Racism

Outfitted in amazing leather and figure-hugging looks, Naomi Campbell is The Edit's latest cover star. The legendary model also speaks to the magazine on racism still being alive in the fashion industry. She says she has been told some horror stories:

"I do think there is still racism. Joan Smalls and Jourdan Dunn and I speak with each other and, sometimes, I'm a little horrified with the things they tell me." 

Naomi made a surprise appearance at the Versace Autumn/Winter 2013 show and she admits she was stunned by people's reactions: 

 "I was quite stunned at the [silent] reaction - I remember the room being quiet and I thought, 'Oh my God, they don't want me here!' It was emotional for me to do the show after 14 years. I knew about it for months and couldn't tell anyone. When I did my fitting in those amazing clothes, it was just overwhelming." 

She says that to get in shape for that catwalk appearance, she went on a special juice cleanse: 

"Since I had my operation on my [in 2012, after being reportedly mugged], Pilates has become very important. I don't want to build muscle, just to tone. I let chocolate and crisps come in at times. You have to allow the little things that make you happy. For ten days prior to the Versace show, I just drank juice - carrot, ginger, pineapple - to cleanse." 

 On aspiring models and what they need to know: 

 "I want people to really understand what the world of modeling is about, and how hard we work. I like the mentoring aspect, as opposed to sitting in my chair and judging someone. It's really rewarding to see the models transformed and it makes me feel like I'm doing something right."
