Supermodel, businesswoman, activist and provocateur. Ever since she embarked on the road to stardom in her teens, Naomi Campbell has dazzled the world with her style, strength and indomitable spirit.
The first black model to make the covers of the French edition of Vogue and TIME magazine has appeared on hundreds of front pages of coated paper, in countless fashion editorials and in advertising campaigns.
She has worked with the best photographers of the 1980s and 1990s, as well as those of today.
Originally published in a signed Collector's Edition, of only 1,000 copies, this book brings together the best of Campbell's portfolio in an updated, unlimited XL edition.
Includes photographs of Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, Richard Avedon, Anton Corbijn, Patrick Demarchelier, Steven Meisel, Helmut Newton, Herb Ritts, Paolo Roversi, Mario Testino, Ellen von Unwerth and Bruce Weber, among many other prestigious photographers, as well as unforgettable snapshots such as Peter Lindbergh's funny sequence in which the model dances in the style of Josephine Baker on the French beach of Deauville, for the Italian edition of Vogue, or the surprising composition by Jean-Paul Goude in which she runs alongside a cheetah, published by the US edition of Harper's Bazaar.
The title also includes extensive autobiographical text by Naomi illustrated with magazine covers, advertisements and stills, among other materials.
The model recalls her childhood, the beginnings of her modeling career, her work with legendary photographers and top fashion designers such as Azzedine Alaïa, John Galliano, Marc Jacobs, Karl Lagerfeld and Gianni Versace, as well as her meteoric rise to stardom.
This edition also includes the biographies of the photographers and an illustrated index.
