Naomi Campbell
Professor Stuart Hall
Supermodel who is frequently hailed among the world's most beautiful woman

By the age of 27,Naomi Campbell had already conquered the fashion world, setting modelling runways and magazine covers ablaze with a sophisticated, sultry style that has made her both a media star, and international celebrity. After only a few years in the modelling business, she quickly began breaking new ground, becoming the first black model to appear on the covers of Time Magazine, as well as French and British Vogue. Since then, she has become a veritable renaissance woman proving herself exceptional beyond the realm of supermodel.

She was born in May 1970, in Streatham to Valerie Campbell, a fashion designer and model. Naomi began her career at 15, when Beth Boldt, an agent at Elite, spotted her walking down a London Street near Covent Garden (and near her school) and offered to have her pictures taken. She spent two years on the Paris runway; hit the cover of French Vogue and a year later made history again, when her face--and legs--appeared on the cover of American Vogue, making her the first black woman to appear on the number one fashion magazine in the States. She quickly became the darling of top international designers, forging an especially close relationship with Versace, for whom she modelled for 12 years before an acrimonious parting of the ways in 1999.

The following year Naomi launched a fragrance - named after herself of course - backed by a worldwide marketing push and promotional tour. She has also dabbled in films, appearing alongside Antonio Banderas in Miami Rhapsody and with Sophia Loren and Kim Basinger in Prêt-à-Porter.

Campbell has been romantically linked with Robert De Niro, Sylvester Stallone and Mike Tyson.
