Naomi Campbell Celebrates 30 Years Of Modeling With Book Launch

Not many models have had a career like Naomi Campbell. Discovered at age 15, the British beauty celebrated her 30 years in fashion with the launch of her new book, “Naomi,” a collection of her body of work.

The 45-year-old was feted by the fashion industry’s heavy hitters on Thursday in New York City at a soiree hosted by Marc Jacobs and Benedikt Taschen at The Diamond Horseshoe.

For the occasion, the catwalk queen made a spectacular appearance in a flesh-baring, floor-length purple sequined dress and gold heels.

The new tome by Taschen features a 3-D cover that resembles Campbell’s bust and includes a collection of her portfolio, autobiographical text, magazine covers and never-before-seen photos. The autographed two-volume set retails for $1,750.

Among the guests, Bella Hadid posed for a selfie with her “mentor” Campbell, who called the 19-year-old a “bright rising star” in a photo posted on her Instagram page.
