Naomi Campbell: Still a Diva, In Case You Were Wondering
By Max Berlinger
Remember way back in 2007 when supermodel Naomi Campbell was court-ordered to complete five days of community service for assaulting her maid with a diamond-encrusted cellphone over a missing pair of jeans (hahah, like the maid should have expected anything less)? If you don't, just know that Naomi did not come to community service -- at a sanitation facility -- in some slouchy sweats and and a baggy T-shirt. Oh, no, she had none of that. Girlfriend wore straight-up runway looks each day, with the final day finding her in a floor-length silvery gown with a metal belt (Dolce & Gabbana, if memory serves correctly). It was basically a big eff you to everyone involved, and it worked. Naomi looked both amazingly beautiful while making a joke of diva-like persona. Grazia Daily caught up with Campbell and confronted her about the ordeal, and she took it in stride:
Grazia: It is so fabulous that you wore this to do community service!
Naomi Campbell: Well, I was done! Here, I was leaving for the day, I had finished!
G: But you wore couture every day, right?
N: Yep! Why shouldn’t I have done? Why should they expect me to go looking bedraggled or something?
G: When did you decide to dress like that?
N: I didn’t, it wasn’t planned at all. I decided on the day and I still gave them what they wanted, it didn’t stop me from doing what I had to do though.
G: You even did the work in the heels?
N: No. Not the heels! I wore boots – only heels when I was arriving and leaving!
Oh, and for those haters out there, the clothes were auctioned off for charity afterwards.
