Black certainly does not crack! Go head Naomi.

Naomi Campbell Covers Shape Magazine

The still slim and sexy supermodel is stunning on the cover of the April edition of Shape Magazine. Inside she talks diet, exercise and dodging discrimination in the fashion industry.

Here’s an excerpt via Shape Magazine:

If there’s one thing we learned from Campbell, it’s that her journey to superstardom wasn’t easy. She’s battled discrimination in the industry, saying that the color of her skin has been a challenge her entire career. “But I learned if you don’t accept no for an answer, you often get a yes.” Her achievement, of course, partially stems from her fit physique, which she owes to her clean eating and devout exercise routine.

While juicing is certainly a part of her diet, she does not deprive herself. “I don’t believe in starving myself. I’ve never done it, and I never will,” she says. “I’m even more active when I’m juicing, doing both yoga and Pilates every day.” Otherwise, her eating plan is as clean as it gets, kicking off with hot water and lemon plus an intense yoga session while including vegetable juices, herbal tea, and salads with fish or steak.

Still, every woman—supermodel or not—has her indulgences. For Campbell, it’s a chocolate bar in England called Galaxy that she says she can’t give up. Something she learned she could give up, though? Her decades-long addiction to smoking. “People told me that cigarettes are harder to quit than alcohol,” she says. “I didn’t believe it, but you know what? It is harder.” She still struggles to stay off the smokes with the help of a nicotine patch.

To stay fit and balanced, Campbell says she practices yoga for at least an hour most days of the week. But, like all of us, the model finds herself in need of a speedy routine when she can’t fit in a regular session. For her 10-minute workout routine, plus more on her favorite exercises and simple beauty advice, pick up the new issue of Shape, on newsstands and iPads nationwide on March 24.

Congrats to Naomi on nabbing the cover. Check out more photos of her from inside the magazine:
