Naomi Campbell

She may have been delayed for more than an hour – but in the end Naomi Campbell proved to be very much worth the wait.

The supermodel flew into the capital – a city she once called home – on a private jet (natch) yesterday morning and this afternoon was unveiled as the brand new face of Newbridge Silver

Over the next two years, Ms Campbell will front campaigns for the Irish jewellery company, kicking off with the Little Blue Box drive.

Proud as punch Newbridge CEO William Doyle said this afternoon that the supermodel was "one of the the most beautiful and recognisable faces in the world".

He added that she embodies "grace, style, beauty and strength," and was thus an "ideal fit" for the brand.

And certainly, Ms Campbell looked radiant this afternoon wearing black leather sleeveless dress by Alexander McQueen. 

Facing around 40 members of the media, including the likes of Anne Doyle, Glenda Gilson, Andrea Roche (who booked her on behalf of Newbridge Silver), Holly White, and Michele McGrath, the model said she misses her time in Dublin.

"The city has changed so much and grown so much, though," she added. "I remember walking down Grafton Street and popping into a load of the different pubs – I always remember getting free pints of Guinness. I never used to pay!"

She also made sure to look up old friends; Ali Hewson, the wife of U2 frontman, Bono, being top of her must-see list.

Undeniably, and now into her fifth decade with an incredible 30-year career under her belt, Naomi looks breathtaking – something this afternoon she attributed to plenty of yoga and Pilates as well as a "balanced" approach to food and diet.

"Not too much sugar," she stated, "plenty of water and sleep – but I live my life too."

Though she swore she's not high-maintenance when it comes to her off-duty beauty regime.

"Yes, I do love fashion," she confirmed, "but I like to go fresh-faced when I'm not working – I like to let my skin breathe."

The 45-year-old beauty, a former love-interest of Irishmen Adam Clayton and Michael Fassbender, this afternoon makes her way to RTE to pre-record a segment for The Late Late Show with Ryan Tubridy.

As well as boasting one of the most impressive and lengthy catwalk careers of any model, Ms Campbell also has something of a reputation for court-appearances.

Earlier this year, the Londoner was convicted of scratching a photographer's eye in Sicily six years ago.

She even was handed down a six-month sentence by an Italian court – though the term was subsequently suspended.

Still, Ireland certainly suits her and it seems that Naomi will be spending significantly more time here now that she's signed the dotted line with the Kildare-based brand.

Up first: she'll be launching an as-yet still under wraps project next month, and in a personal capacity says she's looking forward to visiting the famed Newbridge Silverware Museum Of Style Icons.

"I have to see Michael Jackson's glove!" she laughed. 

Ms Campbell, who has reportedly been courted by Newbridge for some time and has taken a generous six-figure sum for the gig, of course takes over as the face of the company from Amy Huberman.

Mr Doyle praised Amy for her "major contribution" to Newbridge, but also said it was time for a change. "That's just the nature of brands," he explained.

Supermodel Naomi Campbell has been convicted of assaulting a paparazzo.

She scratched the photographer’s eye during the incident, which happened in Sicily six years ago.

The Londoner was handed down a six-month sentence by an Italian court on Friday – though it’s unlikely she’ll see the inside of a prison cell: the term has been suspended.

And according to The Telegraph, her lawyer has also vowed to appeal.

"We are appealing the ruling surrounding the 2009 incident," attorney Guido Carlo Alleva said in a brief statement.

Gaetano Di Giovanni was taking pictures of the model with her then-boyfriend, Russian billionaire Vladimir Doronin, in the Sicilian town of Lipari when Campbell hit him with her bag.

The outburst resulted in a scratch to Mr Di Giovanni's eye, causing him to seek medical treatment and take three days off work to recover from the injury.

Ms Campbell had been ordered to stand trial in Italy in 2013.

And while she reportedly reached a financial settlement with the photographer on condition that he withdraw the charges, the public prosecutor nevertheless proceeded with a conviction due to the severity of the incident.

Back in 1998, Naomi, who boasts a 30-year career in modelling, was ordered by a court to attend anger-management classes after striking her personal assistant with a mobile phone.

In 2008 she admitted attacking police at Heathrow in a row over lost luggage.

Oh the Kardashian-Jenner-West-Disick clan, we can barely keep up with them all. If someone’s not getting married, they’re headlining Glastonbury. If they’re not having a baby, then they’re getting into some risky business outside a night club.

And when they’re not taking selfies… Well, we don’t know actually know what happens then.

 

One thing we do know, when they post a selfie online, people go crazy.

Case in point, Kendall Jenner just smashed her big sister Kim’s record for ‘most liked’ photo on her Instagram page.

 

A photo posted by Kendall Jenner (@kendalljenner) on

The 19-year old posted the photo a month ago and it has since gathered 2.5 million likes. Compared to Kim and Kanye’s wedding photograph which only had a measly 2.4 million.

 

Nothing like a little sibling rivalry, eh?

It’s not just Instagram that Kendall is gathered more and more fame. Most recently the reality TV star turned supermodel was hanging out with legend Naomi Campbell.

Both models walked the runway for Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci at his Paris show. Kendall hit the runway in a pale ink lingerie-inspired gown with a skirt consisting of tassels, and not a whole lot else.

Naomi turned heads so hard the people in the FRO got whiplash when she slipped into a tiny G-string bikini and blazer.

Proud mama Kris Jenner and beau Corey Gamble were spotted at the show, along with Courtney Love.

It’s not all work and no play for Kenny J though. She managed to get herself to not one but two of the biggest music events happening last night.

She made an onstage appearance with a host of other famous model friends at pal Taylor Swift’s gig before she and Cara popped over to Glastonbury to see Kanye West headline.

Record shattering, modelling and rock concert performing, all in a weekend’s work for the young model.

We’re exhausted just thinking about it.

Naomi Campbell has dismissed rumours she got into a physical fight with fellow model Cara Delevingne during Paris Fashion Week. 

The story by Page Six reported that the two women got into something of a brawl at Castel club in Paris when Naomi accused Cara of disrespecting Rihanna. Apparently, Cara tried to pull off Naomi’s wig during the the fracas, but it didn’t budge.

However, Naomi has now addressed the story on Twitter, writing: “Don’t know where this story has come from about @Caradelevingne and I fighting! It is completely untrue, ignore the rumours XN.”

Despite tweeting a rather telling “I don’t f*** with you!!! You lil stupid ass bi***” only nineteen hours ago, around the time of the party, Cara retweeted Naomi’s dismissal of the fight.

Hmm, sounds to us as if something did go down with the ladies, but they have obviously pushed their differences aside.

We can safely say that this is Katie Price as we have never seen her before!

The model and recent Celebrity Big Brother winner took to the catwalk at Naomi Campbell's Fashion For Relief show last night, a fundraising event which saw celebs like Laura Whitmore, Pixie Lott and Jourdan Dunn strut their stuff for charity.

The usually glamourous Katie embraced androgynous style for the evening, wearing a black tuxedo, a buttoned white shirt and a silk bowtie:

We have to admit she looks fab!

She finished off the look with slicked back hair and some striking red lipstick. Stylist Matt Roskell said he was nervous to work with Katie but jumped at the chance to overhaul her image.

"I always thought the tan, hair extensions, fake eyelashes detracted from rather than enhanced her beauty," he said. "I was really excited, if a bit nervous, about being assigned to Katie but felt this was an amazing opportunity to show her and the fash pack how fierce she can actually look."

Although she took some convincing, Katie soon came around to the idea of rocking a masculine style. "Once she was on-board with my vision and agreed to it, she walked the catwalk with a confidence I haven't seen in her in a long time," Matt said.

As for Katie, she says she was "totally up for" putting herself at the mercy of the stylists.

Quite the transformation!

This has to be the most bizarre Justin Bieber news we have heard in a long, long time.

The singer split from his on-again-off-again girlfriend Selena Gomez before Christmas and although he was briefly linked to model Hailey Baldwin, both parties have denied there is anything going on.

We are kinda hoping that there is though, because we REALLY can't get on board with his latest potential crush.

Justin was spotted backstage at a New York Fashion Week show over the weekend holding hands with none other than… Naomi Campbell.

Yes, that Naomi Cambell. The one who is 24 years his senior.

While we reeeeally can't imagine that Naomi has any feelings for Justin in that way, the 20-year-old singer certainly looked smitten and could barely keep his eyes off the supermodel:

Naomi kept her eyes to the floor the entire time, avoiding any engagement with either Justin or photographers.

With the Baby singer launching his modelling career last month with a VERY daring shoot for Calvin Klein, maybe he was just looking to Naomi for some advice?

We sure hope so!

Naomi Campbell has fallen victim to the perils of autocorrect in a majorly embarrassing way.

Upon the fantastic news that Malala Yousafzai had been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, the supermodel took to Twitter to send her heartfelt congratulations.

Unfortunately for Naomi, Malala’s name was autocorrected in her tweet, and she ended up congratulating “malaria” instead.

Naomi clearly had nothing but the best intentions, but we are cringing so hard for her.

To make matters worse, the tweet is still up on her account and has already been retweeted over a thousand times!

Naomi/ Naomi’s “people” – please read this and change the tweet!

She has taken on the runway, gotten her own fragrance and mentored on The Face, but now it seems Naomi Campbell has fashion in her sights.

It seems Naomi has taken a leaf out of Kate Moss’s book as she prepares to launch her own fashion line – and we can’t contain our excitement!

The supermodel is currently in negotiations about possible collaborations, saying: “I’ve been approached by a few brands to design a line for them. It’s something that interests me and I’m in negotiations.”

Kate Moss, who has her own Topshop collection, may have been Naomi’s inspiration for starting her own line.

Talking about her friends who have their own stamp on clothing collections, Naomi said: “I’m always so proud of my friends who develop great lines in fashion. I’m genuinely happy to wear the clothes they create.”

It’s not just clothes that The Face host will be designing, she has her eye on accessories, lingerie and swimwear.

Naomi Campbell is dating Hollywood hottie Michael Fassbender.

The supermodel has proven she’s still got it by snagging the gorgeous Irish actor.

The pair was reportedly seen openly kissing and cuddling at a London restaurant this week.

Naomi had been attending the launch of a fashion exhibition at the V&A Museum in London, while Michael had pre-recorded an appearance on BBC1’s The Graham Norton Show. The two met up afterwards to enjoy a night of PDAs.

Naomi is said to be totally smitten with Michael – we don’t blame her.

Michael was very recently dating his 12 Years A Slave co-star Lupita Nyong’o, while this is the first romance Naomi has been linked to since she split with Russian billionaire Vladimir Deronin last May after five years together.

X Factor winner, Sam Bailey was so delighted that she had topped the UK charts that she decided to celebrate, with a food fight.

The mother-of-two was performing at the London club G-A-Y where she was presented on stage with a cake to congratulate her album The Power of Love, reaching no.1 in the charts.

But instead of digging into the massive cake, the X Factor winner decided to instead have a massive cake fight backstage.

The 36-year-old singer was completely covered in cake after the fight but didn’t seem to mind as she tweeted later how much she enjoyed it.

“My first and ever Cake fight!!!! Loved it so muchxx.”

And as if being No.1 wasn’t enough, Sam learnt that night that supermodel, Naomi Campbell was a fan of her music.

Naomi made a surprise visit on stage to congratulate the singer’s success but this was before the cake fight, took place of course.

Naomi Campbell has revealed that some of the 90’s supermodels are reuniting for an upcoming project.

Talking on CBS This Morning, Naomi only had great things to say about her time with the girls: “I came up with a group of ladies and I don’t think you’ll ever get that group of ladies together again.”

Ever the modest lady, Naomi.

Continuing on about how there will never be a group of models like the 90’s supermodels ever again, ever…ever, she says: “You’ll get one here, one there, one there, but on a whole, you’ll never get it again.”

Naomi also teased: “We’re working with each other in a few weeks as it happens.”

Naomi’s lips were (surprisingly) shut about the whole affair but she did add: “In a very nice, sunny, warm place on water.”

We want to know more!
