Glam Cam: Supermodel Naomi Campbell

Naomi Campbell, the supermodel many people love to hate.  I, on the other hand, is what Carrie Bradshaw would call a modelizer, only in a non-sexual sort of way.  I just love 'em.  Of course this is coming from just seeing them in gorgeous magazine spreads, dating rock stars and hot athletes (Tom Brady-love you), and rushing through international airports on their way to their next amazing shoot modeling swimsuits in Rio de Janeiro.  I don't know the side of models of waiting 2 hours for them to show up to a shoot, having phones through at me, or dealing with their high maintenance holier than thou attitudes.

I would love to see more models gracing magazine covers instead of celebrities.  I don't know why or exactly when this changed, but give the job back to those trained to show off designer's clothes on runways and editorial layouts and let actresses stick what they are best at, acting.

Naomi, 41, is getting asked to do jobs she did 20 years ago.  How's that for longevity in a model's career?  Her body and face look absolutely stunning especially considering all the hard partying she did through several years of her career.  However, she has overcome drug addictions and anger management issues and now signs all e-mails "Love &  Light, Naomi".  She arrived in complete supermodel style for her Harper's Bazaar photo shoot: 2 hours late draped in mink.  She then scoured the apparel racks to approve what she would be wearing, not the stylist. And apparently unheard of in today's modeling world she didn't even glance at the monitor between takes.  She's that good.
