Naomi Campbell reacts to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's Vogue cover

USMagazine, Tuesday, March 25, 2014, 9:20am (PDT)

Supermodel shade! Naomi Campbell had no response to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's Vogue cover while appearing on Australia's "The Morning Show" in a segment dubbed, "The Original Supermodel," on March 25. But her expression said everything.

"I do not want to comment," the "Face" judge said diplomatically to hosts Larry Emdur and Kylie Gillies, after they had asked about the Kimye cover. The five-time US Vogue cover girl briefly hesitated and then bursted out into a fit of giggles.

"I'm a fashion model and I've been working for 28 years," Campbell added. "And when you get a Vogue cover, it's a build in your career -- a stepping stone to achieve that."

The hosts, dissatisfied with her response, pressed for more information. "Kim and Kanye haven't earned the right to be on the cover of Vogue?" one host asked Campbell. She simply responded, "Those are your words -- not mine. I'm being politically correct."

Campbell, 43, rose to fame in her teenage years as part of the "Big 5," alongside world-famous supermodels Cindy Crawford, Christy Turlington, Linda Evangelista, and Claudia Schiffer. The five gorgeous women frequently took over Vogue's pages -- covers included -- during the height of their reign in the '90s.

Since Kimye's April 2014 Vogue cover was revealed last Friday, celebrities have opined over whether or not the reality star and her rapper beau deserve to grace the front of fashion's bible. Sarah Michelle Gellar took threw some serious shade at the cover last Friday and tweeted, "Well……I guess I'm canceling my Vogue subscription. Who is with me???"

"Bound 3" stars James Franco and Seth Rogen released a hilarious spoof of the new Vogue cover last weekend that went viral. And the "Muppets" even offered their own parody, featuring Kermit and Miss Piggy striking the same prom pose.

Anticipating the backlash, Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour even penned a letter addressing Kardashian's long-awaited cover. "It was, I should add, entirely our idea to do it," she said. "You may have read that Kanye begged me to put his fiancee on Vogue's cover. He did nothing of the sort."
