You could have fooled us, Naomi! Ms Campbell claims she's 'no supermodel'… as she shows off her amazing figure
Naomi Campbell is not often known for her modesty.
But the model showed her humble side when she was asked to look back over her hugely successful career or modelling and charity work.
Asked what she thinks of the supermodel label she has borne since the Nineties, Naomi simply replied: 'I would never call myself that.'
When asked what she thinks of the supermodel label she has borne for years, Naomi simply replies: 'I would never call myself that… I dont have any superhuman powers'
Her reasoning is simple: 'I
don’t have any superhuman powers.' But, as a model who as appeared on the covers of fashion bibles for the past 20 years, she could have fooled us.
The 41-year-old has seamlessly slipped into almost every fashion craze for the past 20 years.
Even during tough times, like when she had to testify at The Hague during a trial about blood diamonds, Naomi generated more column inches through what she was wearing than by what she said.
And there is no stopping her now.
Naomi hand-picked her owns sparkly leotards and hotpants for the shoot, opting for garments by Dolce & Gabbana, Giambattista Valli, Givenchy, Hakaan and Gucci

'I still love what I do,' she told Harper's Bazaar. 'It’s a new challenge to see how people
can change your look. I like words like transformation, reinvention, and
chameleon. Because one word I don’t like is predictable.'
The model looks stunning in the black and white photos accompanying the interview, taken by French photgrapher Karim Sadli.

But she admits that she does need to work a little harder to keep her figure now than she did in her teens.
In 1999, Naomi infamously told Playboy: 'I never diet. I smoke. I drink now and then. I never work out. I work very hard and I am worth every cent.'
But holding onto her radiant skin and trim figure is not quite as easy any more.
She sticks to a strict beauty regime of steams and facials and does 'everything I can to keep my skin elasticated.'
Naomi's diet has also changed.
'For me, carbs are a treat now,' she says.
These photos show that it's worth the effort, Naomi.
