This sumptuously illustrated celebration of Naomi Campbell’s extraordinary groundbreaking place in fashion accompanies her first major retrospective at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum.
In this remarkable book, trailblazing supermodel Naomi Campbell herself selects her favorite photographs—by iconic photographers such as Steven Meisel, Peter Lindbergh, Paolo Roversi, Ellen von Unwerth, Arthur Elgort, Karim Sadli, and Mikael Jansson—to showcase her life in fashion from the earliest appearances until today.
A series of iconic looks are presented in detail accompanied by extended captions replete with Naomi’s personal anecdotes and recollections. She also personally champions her favorite designers, from legends such as Lagerfeld, McQueen, and Versace to up-and-coming talents—especially from Africa—such as Marianne Fassler and Kenneth Ize.
Featuring a wide-ranging interview with Naomi, this glamorous, engaging, yet accessible book celebrates Naomi as one of the world’s leading role models and inspiration to the creatives of today and the future.
