A race row between British model Naomi Campbell and Russian fashionista Miroslava Duma involving the ‘N-word’ appears to be over after the pair posted a selfie together.
During last year’s Paris Fashion Week, the Russian designer Ulyana Sergeenko, 37, was criticised by Campbell for sending a note to fashion entrepreneur Duma sating: “To my nigg*s in Paris.”
The message referred to the Jay-Z and Kanye West hit from 2011 ‘Nigg*s In Paris’.

Duma posted the note online for her 1.6 million Instagram followers and received a barrage of criticism.
According to local media, Campbell, 48, also shared the offensive message, commenting: “This better not be real.”
According to reports, the former British supermodel also called for fashion fans to boycott Sergeenko’s Paris show.
However, both Russians later issued apologies.
Duma said: “I sincerely apologise for my regrettable Instagram Story that went out. The phrase was taken from a Jay-Z and Kanye West song of the same title.
“However, the world is utterly offensive and I regret using it. I deeply respect people of all backgrounds and detest racism or discrimination of any kind.”
Now it seems as though the bad blood between Duma and Campbell is over after the pair posed for a selfie together.
Netizen ‘CuuraSelangor’ said: “Awesome.”
‘Volk80’ added: “Finally! Great stuff.”
‘MalinaRu’ commented: “It is just business, darlings.”
