Naomi Campbell Drank Only Juice For 10 Days Before The Versace Runway Show

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.

Naomi Campbell’s Assault Story Keeps Changing

From Page Six:

After we reported Naomi Campbell was attacked by Paris muggers who injured her leg, the supermodel addressed the incident at a Television Critics Association press conference yesterday.

“I had an injury of my knee and I am on the mend. I cannot discuss any further as there is an investigation,” Campbell said while promoting her upcoming series, “The Face,” in LA. Campbell was attacked by thugs in November as she tried to get into a car, Page Six reported exclusively last week, and suffered what’s suspected to be a torn ligament. The beauty has recently been seen without a wheelchair, but wearing flat shoes rather than heels.

But wait. Wait. Because I thought that there was no investigation, because there was no report made? Didn’t French law enforcement officials all agree that none of them knew anything about a gorgeous, British, model citizen (ha, see what I did there?) being attacked on the streets of Paris while hailing a cab like a … well, like some common person? Wasn’t it altogether determined that Naomi wasn’t pressing charges in the incident, because she didn’t know who had attacked her, and really, wanted to keep it all kind of private anyhow?

Gosh, it just confuses the hell out of me when stories like this evolve and evolve and evolve. Next thing we’ll be hearing is something about a phone actually causing the injury. Maybe it’ll be that there was a cord or something that Naomi was ultimately tripped by or over, or something. Who knows.

Stay well, girl!

Naomi Campbell Got Her Ass Kicked, is in a Wheelchair

From TMZ:

Naomi Campbell reportedly suffered a torn ligament in her leg when she was mugged on a street in Paris.

The supermodel was hailing a cab when she was attacked and robbed by multiple assailants reports the NY Post. The attack — which occurred more than a month ago — left Campbell in a wheelchair and crutches.

The Post says Campbell’s boyfriend, Vladimir Doronin, has upped her security since the incident.

When called for comment about the incident, Campbell told the paper, “I am sorry, I do not talk to press, but I am fine.”

So I’m not going to make any crass comments about karma and phone-throwing and staff-abusing, because it’s never cool when anyone hurts or maims anyone for any reason, but wow. Naomi Campbell, “brutally mugged”? Yikes. Is no one safe these days?

But hey— here’s a note of interest: when French police were asked about the incident, they claimed that they had no knowledge whatsoever about an attack on Naomi Campbell or any other non-French traveler in recent weeks. A law enforcement source said, “A high profile celebrity being attacked in Paris would be something everybody remembers. If such a serious crime had taken place then a criminal enquiry would have started by now – especially if the victim ended up in a wheelchair.” Naomi, as you can see in the photo above, is indeed in a wheelchair (and not just a wheelchair—a Jazzy).

Naomi, however, was brief in her description of the attack, as noted by TMZ. Despite her brevity, a “friend” tells the New York Post that there was way more to it than just being knocked down and ending up OK—the source said, “It was terrifying [for her]. Naomi believes the assailant had been watching her, casing her out, and waited for a moment to strike when she was alone. She was attacked in the street as she hailed a cab, and robbed. Her leg was injured as she was violently pushed to the ground. She was understandably very upset and shaken up.”

Even further bizarre is the fact that other sources are also saying that it would be completely out of character for Naomi to hail a cab—alone—when she’s more of a higher-maintenance traveler than that. An employee at a limousine service that Naomi utilized in the past had this to say about his former client’s taxi-shunning ways:

“The thought of Naomi Campbell hailing a taxi in the street is laughable, let alone the idea that a gang would attack her. It all sounds absolutely bizarre. Naomi is quite a demanding lady, and always has lots of assistants around her too. She’s seldom alone!”

What a weird thing, huh? Get well soon, Naomi!
