“It was a very special honor and unusual experience for me to be able to shoot and style my own cover for Essence’ 50th Anniversary Issue on my [iPhone],” the model shared. “While it was a sad reminder for me of all the people in media and production who are not able to work due to the coronavirus, it also brought me hope and encouragement to know that our people and our infrastructures are resilient.”

“We are rooted in knowledge and creativity and continue to take back full control of our narratives,” she added. “We will come out of this stronger than ever. Happy Anniversary @Essence magazine . As we both turn the century together wearing : vintage @Chloe by Karl Lagerfeld.”

Campbell has also been keeping busy hosting Instagram Live chats with friends and filming content for her YouTube channel.

However, some fans were quick to notice the reflection of someone in one of her clips in which the supermodel was sharing her looks for the glamorous Met Gala. The NSFW tweet can be seen here.
