Naomi Campbell Did a 10-Day Juice Cleanse Before Walking for Versace

Forget about those models who claim to pig out on burgers and fries the day of a runway show--Naomi Campbell isn't one to bullshit--or require any actual solid foods to stay alive, apparently.

Forget about those models who claim to pig out on burgers and fries the day of a runway show--Naomi Campbell isn't one to bullshit--or require any actual solid foods to stay alive, apparently.

The 43-year-old supermodel told The Edit that, in preparation of walking in Versace's Fall 2013 couture runway show in July, she allowed herself a diet of liquids-only. For an effing week and a half.

"For 10 days prior to the Versace show, I just drank juice--carrot, ginger, pineapple--to cleanse," she divulged. "[Generally] I’m not extreme about what I eat--I let chocolate and crisps come in at times. You have to allow the little things that make you happy." (Ten days without food sounds pretty extreme to us but...)

"It was emotional for me to do the show after 14 years,” she continued, referring to her long-time absence from the house. "I knew about it for months and couldn’t tell anyone. When I did my fitting in those amazing clothes, it was just overwhelming."

After 10 days without food, we think it's fair to say that watching a kitten playing with a ball of yarn would be overwhelming. Let's just hope Campbell rewarded herself with a nice low-fat crisp or two at the after party.
