Naomi Campbell: The Role Model that Revolutionized Fashion

From the fashion runway to television performance, supermodel Naomi Campbell will never cease to amaze us with her beauty and talent for being a successful producer, businesswoman, and activist for noble causes around the world. Naomi’s generous heart won the affection of Nelson Mandela, who named her his “Honorary Granddaughter.”

From her first steps as a dancer, which included appearing in one of legendary Bob Marley’s music videos, Naomi blossomed into a gracious model who gained wide recognition at only 15 years of age. A London native, Naomi is a proven queen of elegance, beauty, and talent.

Her iconic looks will never go out of style. Even when she distanced herself from the fashion world, Naomi always incorporates her great taste in outfits with the latest trends. Her unmistakable flair is present everywhere she goes, including going on a casual date with her friend, singer Usher, to accompanying her prestigious friends, Baroness Amos and Edward Enninful, to the Buckingham Palace.

The story of Naomi Campbell is inspirational. She was the first black model to appear on the covers of influential magazines TIME and Vogue France and Russia, and the first British black model on British Vogue. It’s no coincidence that she’s graced the covers of over 500 exclusive magazines around the world, earning her the admiration of exquisite brands and fans.

Aside from modeling, Naomi has captured the attention of the television industry and has appeared alongside legendary stars like Madonna and Michael Jackson. Recently, she’s starred on popular TV shows like American Horror Story and Empire.

At 46, Naomi still stuns with her exotic goddess figure. The cameras always seem to catch a confident Naomi, including this year in New York City at the Museum of Modern Art, where she showed off her toned physique in a modern cutaway gown on the red carpet at the WSJ Magazine Innovator Awards.

Charm, class, and grace describe Naomi’s signature style that was popular in the 1980s and 1990s but continues to be glorified in fashion. Naomi Campbell is a fascinating role model on and off the runway.
