Folks, today is Naomi Campbell‘s birthday. Since her debut at the age of 15 she’s become one of the most iconic (and notorious) supermodels in the world. She almost immediately snagged the cover of British ELLE back in 1986, and then went on to become the first black Vogue Paris cover model. Since then, there has been no stopping her. These 42 covers only scratch the surface of her body of work.
Bad temper aside, it’s safe to say that Ms. Campbell is one of the greatest and most beloved models of our time. No matter what she does, whether she’s throwing a cell phone at your head, judging a reality show, or starring in Cavalli ads, it’s safe to say that at 42, Naomi Campbell is still fierce. With every photo shoot, public appearance, or turn down the catwalk, she still keeps us interested. And we love her for it.
So, here’s to you Ms. Campbell: You’re 42 years old, and don’t look a day over 27. Cheers!
