Over-the-top supermodel Naomi Campbell poses for the most shocking photos in her long career. She’s featured with a ghostly white model covered in blood and freakishly eerie tattoos, who looks dead.
The photos, which appear in Interview magazine, shockingly suggest necrophilia, that is, sex with dead people. Shades of Sixth Sense!
Clad in black leather and stilettoed heels, the supermodel’s gory, kinky photo shoot also reflects strong sado-masochistic themes. The tiled walls and floors, suggesting either an insane asylum or bathroom, are bloodstained.
Naomi, 40, was interviewed by New York art gallery owner Tony Shafrazi and shed some light on her controversial career and her high-strung behavior.
“You know, none of us ever cared about this word supermodel. It was just a kind of terminology that the press came up with for whatever reason,” she said. “But what we did like was being together. We were very supportive of one another, my group of girls, and I don’t think that happens so much nowadays.”
“I didn’t feel alone. Those ladies still look amazing today. Time has gone by, but they still look amazing,” she said.
Indeed, the era of supermodels, illustrated by Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington, Cindy Crawford, Claudia Schiffer and Helena Christensen is long over.
Most girls on the catwalk are young, usually in their teens, and emaciated because of the industry’s demand for ultra-thin models.
Although she is in the twilight of her career, Campbell still remains loyal to her designers: the late Gianni Versace, Azzedine Alaïa, Yves Saint Laurent and Karl Lagerfeld.
Naomi was discovered while out shopping in London at the age of 15 and vaulted to almost instant stardom, and the cover of Elle magazine the following year.
She was also the first black model to appear on the cover of French Vogue.
Campbell’s diva behavior and temper tantrums are the stuff of legend.
“Look, I’m controversial. It’s not that people don’t know who I am . . . If people want to work with me, then they want to work with me. If they don’t, they don’t.
“I make many mistakes. Many mistakes. I’m not a perfect human being. I have to learn from my mistakes. And a lot of the ones I’ve made have been public,” she says.
“But I’m trying to do better. I admit to my mistakes. I admit to the things that I’ve done wrong. I admit it. But I’m trying to do right by myself and my life now.”
Campbell was recently forced to testify in the war crimes trial of notorious African warlord Charles Taylor.
Taylor was apparently enamored by the model and showered her with so-called “blood diamonds,” which were used to finance his insurgency, after a dinner hosted by Nelson Mandela in 1997.
She described them as “dirty looking pebbles” and claimed she did not know their origin.
“I felt like I was on trial myself—and this was not my trial. This wasn’t about me. This was his trial. But anyone looking at it would think it was about me,” she said.
