Fashion’s Reigning DivaA sneak peak at Naomi Campbell’s new Taschen book
For nearly 30 years, supermodel Naomi Campbell has captivated the fashion industry and beyond. Now Taschen is celebrating her iconic career with a signed, two-volume limited edition that includes stunning examples of her best work and a candid autobiography.
Campbell was discovered on the streets of her native London when she was 15. “I never planned on being a model,” she explains in the book. Like her mother, Campbell dreamed of being a dancer. But it was her skills at the art of movement that caught the attention of photographers across the globe and made her the first black model to grace the cover of French Vogue and Time magazine. Since then, she has landed hundreds of covers and advertising campaigns, and her dynamic personality—and her infamous temper—has kept her in the tabloids.
“I don’t think I was born beautiful. I just think I was born me.”—Naomi Campbell
