At one time filling endless column inches with the goings on of her really super supermodel life, Naomi Campbell has stormed the zeitgeist once again with the launch earlier this year of her now wildly popular No Filter With Naomi YouTube series. It debuted April 6, just weeks after the worldwide lockdown, when everyone was fresh with panic and dread. She struck a nerve with her honest about her previously not widely publicized germaphobia.
It has since evolved into a show where she gathers up the women of Cooldom and Awesomeville for a chat about what it means to be perpetually awesome. This has meant virtual link ups with the likes of Christy Turlington, Sharon Stone, Karlie Kloss, Anna Wintour, Serena and Venus Williams…you get the idea. But after a short hiatus, she returned on June 23 to deal with the very serious matters at hand, following the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police. So the guest list morphed into civil right activist Opal Tometi, activist/poet Cleo Wade, trans actor Indya Moore, and the like.
But we are all very much in need of music to calm our savaged souls—and so were beyond excited to hear that today, August 25, No Filter With Naomi will feature none other than ethereal songstress and former First Lady of France Carla Bruni. The latter has a gorgeous new single, “Quelque Chose,” and a full album coming in September—and we just can’t get enough of her right now.
