For its 50th anniversary issue, ESSENCE released a Naomi Campbell cover that was styled and shot by the supermodel of the 90s herself using her iPhone. For now, the days of traveling models and crowded photoshoot sets are over and publications are getting creative in other ways with at-home shoots that can be created with accessible high-quality equipment.
For the first-ever ESSENCE magazine cover shot entirely on an iPhone, Campbell did her own hair and makeup, and chose an outfit of her own before posing for a relaxed smartphone self-portrait. According to the magazine, this cover "[marks] the first time in the brand’s 50-year history that a cover star was her own photographer."
