The life of a model is hard, guys. Naomi Campbell is, by all measures, past her prime in this youth-obsessed world, especially when it comes to runway modeling. She’s one of the world’s supermodels, of course, but that doesn’t mean she didn’t feel the pressure when it came to hitting the catwalk for the recent Versace show during Fashion Week. In fact, she felt so much pressure that she only drank juice for ten days straight.
From The Edit:
“For ten days prior to the Versace show, I just drank juice – carrot, ginger, pineapple – to cleanse.”
However, I guess it all paid off because:
Kblockquote>”I was quite stunned at the reaction – I remember the room being quiet and I thought, ‘Oh my God, they don’t want me here!’ It was emotional for me to do the show after 14 years. When I did my fitting in those amazing clothes, it was just overwhelming.”
I don’t really know too much about modeling (nor do I care), but Jesus Christ. If Naomi Campbell, who is modeling royalty and extremely slim/toned, still has to starve herself for the industry from time to time, I have little hope for all the youngins desperate to make their mark.
