With this tribute, TASCHEN celebrates the remarkable career of the one and only Naomi Campbell: supermodel, entrepreneur, activist, and provocateur. A reigning top model since the age of 15, Naomi made history as the first black model to grace the cover of French Vogue and TIME magazine. British-born Campbell, who has appeared on over 300 magazine covers and in countless editorials and advertising campaigns, has worked with the best photographers of the ’80s, ’90s, and today—in looking back over her career this book also revisits a broad selection of the greatest fashion photography of the past quarter century. In two volumes, this signed limited edition captures Campbell’s bold personality and striking beauty in both words and pictures.
