She’s fierce. She’s fly. She’s dominating. She’s simply alluring. She’s one of the dopest super models ever. She’s Naomi Campbell our EGL Chick of the Week!
Considered one of the five original super models, Naomi Campbell is an icon in the world of fashion and beauty. Although her career began at the tender age of 15, Naomi, now 45 years young, shows no signs of retiring. Her most recent work includes a Vogue spread with fellow super models Cindy Crawford and Claudia Schiffer wearing Olivier Rousteing’s Balmain collection. And to add to her myriad of magazine covers, Campbell is red hot on Portugal Vogue 2016. Talk about slaying for decades!
But Naomi’s talents don’t stand solely on catwalks and pages of premiere magazines. This intelligent business woman understands the importance of multiple streams of income. Campbell is also an actress. We’ve watched her on television as far back as in the early ‘90s appearing on the “Fresh Prince of Bel Air” to her current reoccurring roll on Fox Television’s hit series “Empire,” as well as a slew of programs in between. Not really needing a full on speaking part, in light of her stunning on screen presence, she continues to mesmerize anyway. With her piercing glare, and the sharp British articulation, Naomi leaves viewers no choice but to fall under her captivating spell. Naomi Campbell also has executive producing credits under her belt. She’s a threat in front of and behind the camera.
To whom much is given, much is expected. That’s okay because Campbell is a believer in giving. In 1993, she began her charitable contributions by working with Nelson Mandela. Her philanthropic nature continues through her own organization Fashion for Relief, established in 2005. Naomi’s organization raises awareness and funds through hosting fashion shows around the world – New York, London, Cannes, Moscow, Mumbai, and various other destinations. This fashion powerhouse has raised millions to support those in need.
Amazing. Beautiful. Bold. Relentless. Let’s celebrate the Naomi Campbell, the EGL Chick of the Week.
