Campbell was best friends with, and part of the group of, elite supermodels such as Christy Turlington, Cindy Crawford and Linda Evangelista. In a 1990 Vogue profile on the earning power of models, Evangelista said:
‘We don’t wake up for less than $10,000 a day’.

Who is Naomi Campbell?
Naomi Campbell was born in Streatham, London on May 22, 1970. Her mother is from Jamaica and Campbell never knew her father, who left her mother before Campbell was born. Her father is of Chinese descent.
Her first brush with fame came in 1978 when the then eight-year-old Campbell was cast in a music video for Bob Marley’s Is This Love.
She studied ballet at the Italia Conti Stage School and it was while there, in 1985, that the young Naomi Campbell was discovered by Beth Boldt of Elite Models.
Within months, Campbell, still just 15, appeared on the cover of Elle magazine.
Two years later, Campbell graced the cover of British Vogue and in 1988 Campbell appeared on the cover of French Vogue, becoming the first black woman to feature on the cover of the publication.
Her friend, the designer Yves St. Laurent, played a key role in making this happen after he threatened to pull his advertising from the magazine.

She made up one-fifth of the famous Peter Lindbergh 1990 photograph for the cover of British Vogue along with Cindy Crawford, Christy Turlington, Linda Evangelista and Tatjana Patitz.
The quintet’s image resonated with pop superstar George Michael who decided to cast the five models in his Freedom! ‘90 music video.
In the same year, Campbell was named ‘the reigning megamodel of them all’ by Interview Magazine.
After Claudia Schiffer and Kate Moss rose to international fame, they, along with Campbell, Turlington, Crawford and Evangelista became known as the ‘Big Six’.
In 1991, Evangelista, Campbell, Crawford and Turlington walked the catwalk for Versace arm-in-arm while lip-syncing the George Michael song and ‘signified a major moment for the industry’.
Campbell worked steadily throughout the early and mid 90s, featuring in Madonna’s book ‘Sex’ and appearing on the covers of Vogue, American Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar.
Campbell also diversified her professional ventures, branching out into acting with a small role on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and recording a music album entitled, Baby Woman.
However, in 1993 Campbell was dropped by her agency, Elite Model Management, which she had been with since 1987. The agency branded Campbell ‘crazy, irrational and uncontrollable’.
The next day, Ford Models Inc. signed her up.
Towards the end of the 1990s, after Time declared that the end of the supermodel era had arrived, Campbell continued to walk the runways but also expanded modelling to other areas.
In 1999 she signed a cosmetics contract with Cosmopolitan Cosmetics and started producing beauty products such as fragrances. That year Campbell also featured on the cover of Playboy.
In 2001, Campbell was photographed by the Daily Mirror leaving Narcotics Anonymous, after which she sued the paper for breach of confidence.
The case went all the way to the House of Lords in 2004, which sided with Campbell and said the model’s right to privacy outweighed MGN’s freedom of expression.
In 2007, Campbell walked the catwalk for the 60th anniversary Dior fashion show and in 2011 featured on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar. In 2012 Campbell and Kate Moss featured in the closing ceremony of London 2012 Olympic Games, showcasing British fashion clothes.
In 2015, Campbell starred as a recurring character on the hit US TV show, Empire and that same year featured in American Horror Story: Hotel as a Vogue fashion editor.
In March 2018, Naomi Campbell confirmed her romance with grime artist, Skepta. Campbell’s past boyfriends include billionaire Hassan Jameel, who was later linked to Rihanna, and P Diddy. Campbell also famously dated Usher, Prince Albert of Monaco and Sylvester Stallone.
In March 2018, supermodel Naomi Campbell finally confirmed that she is dating grime artist, Skepta.
Rumours started circulating back in January when the supermodel was seen with Skepta at two Paris Fashion Week parties on the Thursday and Friday.
A source at the time told The Sun:
‘Naomi and Skepta have been meeting up for a string of secret dates. They are both very creative which is why they have hit it off with each other.’
However, it wasn’t until March 1 that either party officially confirmed their romance. And what a way to confirm: Naomi Campbell and Skepta feature topless on the cover of GQ in a very steamy shot.
Campbell first teased the news on Wednesday, February 28, by uploading a picture to Instagram, of two topless bodies holding each other, with a large question mark superimposed. She had earlier deleted the full photo.
For those who didn’t see that it was in fact Skepta in the picture, the answer definitively came when the cover of the April edition of British GQ was released.
The cover title reads: ‘Race, Sex, Love & Power. When Naomi met Skepta.’
The romance comes after Campbell was rumoured to be dating Egyptian multimillionaire Louis C. Camilleri back in January, whose ($159.7 million) £116 million fortune is nearly triple Naomi Campbell’s own net worth.
