Supermodel, entrepreneur, activist, provocateur. Since her teenage years, Naomi Campbell has dazzled the world with her looks, her power and her irrepressible spirit. As the first black model, she graced the cover of French Vogue and TIME magazine. She was the face of hundreds of magazine covers, countless editorials and ad campaigns and a favorite subject for some of the best photographers of the '80s, '90s and today.
Originally published as a signed Collector's Edition of only 1,000 copies, this book features the very best of Campbell's portfolio in an updated unrestricted XL edition. It includes photographs by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, Richard Avedon, among others, Anton Corbijn, Steven Meisel, Helmut Newton, Herb Ritts, Paolo Roversi, Ellen von Unwerth and Bruce Weber, and includes unforgettable shoots such as Peter Lindbergh's sequence of Naomi dancing as Josephine Baker on the beach for Italian Vogue and Jean-Paul Goude's stunning composition of the model racing against a cheetah for American Harper's Bazaar.
The collection also includes texts written by Naomi exclusively for this publication, in addition to magazine covers, ads, video stills and more. Naomi recalls her childhood, the beginning of her modeling career, working with the biggest fashion designers, including Azzedine Alaïa, John Galliano, Marc Jacobs, Karl Lagerfeld, Gianni Versace, and her meteoric rise to superstardom. The book also includes photographer biographies and an illustrated appendix.
