Supermodel Naomi Campbell is the cover star of the March 2017 issue of Town and Country magazine and the 46-year old model shows that she’s got that black girl magic with her beautiful skin.
She looks stunning wearing a Carolina Herrera gown with Van Cleef & Arpels jewelry on the cover. In the magazine, Naomi Campbell talks about the age difference between her and other models and more.
Here is what she had to share with the mag:
On walking the runway—and what it’s like now at age 46: “I feel nervous when I walk out [onto the runway]. I just try to make it down in one piece and make it back in one piece. I enjoy it, but I’m nervous. Especially now. I mean, I’m 46, and these girls are 21 or 18… I don’t know if it’s about the age thing, necessarily, but for me there’s always a vulnerability there.”
On her drive to take action after Hurricane Katrina: “I was shocked seeing all these people walking around the streets of New Orleans with nowhere to go, with their homes in their bags. So I picked up the phone and called Teddy Forstmann, who owned IMG at the time, and said I needed to put together a benefit show in seven days.”
On her relationship with Nelson Mandela: “He was always there for me, and he never judged me. He was very instrumental in showing me that I have the ability to help others. He’s the one who sent me to do fieldwork for his children’s fund, and when I would get too emotional in the beginning he would coach me about crying in front of the kids and learning to deal with it.”
