Naomi Campbell and Tyra Banks

When Tyra first stepped on the international fashion scene, the two models were constantly competing for the same jobs. "I got to Paris and it was very difficult. I did very well, very fast. But then the industry was saying, 'Look out Naomi Campbell, here comes Tyra Banks, Naomi Campbell sit your bu** down, this younger one is coming to take your place,' Tyra said in an interview. However, after years the two mended their relationship and there’s now nothing but respect between them. "It does irk me that two women of color have to be pitted against each other. You can have more than one woman of color in a fashion show," Naomi revealed to Andy Cohen on ‘Watch What Happens Live’. She added: "I'm very proud of Tyra and what she's done with 'America's Next Top Model'."
