Luxe Be a Lady

Fashion legend—and future television star—Naomi Campbell dresses up in fall’s most exquisitely embellished pieces.


After 27 years of vamping on catwalks and posing for cameras, Naomi ­Campbell, 42, has some advice to impart to young models: “What­ever you do, do it 110 percent,” she says, sounding unnervingly stern. “That’s what my mother taught me, and it’s what I’ve always believed in.” Such words of wisdom are but a ­teaser for her new show The Face, a model-­competition series airing next year on the Oxygen network. Campbell (whose early television appearances included a role on The Cosby Show in 1988) will star as a ­mentor—­responsible for “nurturing” contestants. The supermodel-turned-celebrity is close enough with Nelson Mandela to call him “granddad,” but she’s not above doing, and watching, reality TV. “I love the Real Housewives—all of them,” she effuses. “Of course, I would never expose myself in that way,” adds Campbell, who now resides in Moscow with her billionaire boyfriend, Vladislav Doronin, and would make a spectacular Russian Housewife, if there ever were one. “But I’m happy to share my experiences.”
