Lights, Camera, Naomi! The Supermodel Reinvents Her Style for Television

When it comes to supermodel style, few can compete with Naomi Campbell. The modeling legend looks good in anything, but she makes it her business to show up on the red carpet wearing show-stopping pieces by friends like Donatella Versace and Riccardo Tisci. Campbell’s gift for glamour lends itself to appearances at awards shows or fashion parties, but her ever-expanding career has taken her into new territory. As one of the stars of Lee Daniels’s latest television show, Star, Campbell is joining TV veterans like Benjamin Bratt and Queen Latifah on-screen. The soap, which is centered on the competitive Atlanta music scene, will give Campbell a chance to show off her acting talents, while pulling her into the world of TCA panels, talk show appearances, and promotional events.
Though Campbell is no stranger to television—she was a coach on the reality competition The Face back in 2013 and 2014—her switch to straight-up acting has impacted her style. For her promo appearances, she opts for an understated version of her signature style. At yesterday’s Fox All-Star Party, she selected a demure sequined red and black Azzedine Alaïa look that highlighted her height, while a press event at the Langham Hotel saw her in knee-high python Givenchy boots and a camo-pattern jacket from the label’s Resort 2017 collection. On talk shows with Wendy Williams and Harry Connick, Jr., Campbell was similarly chic in a tartan column dress or a crimson satin sheath.
While all of Campbell’s looks have been elegant and appropriately alluring, her TV star wardrobe isn’t as ostentatious as the full-tilt glam she's known for. Saving the drama for her performances, Campbell has found a way to wear all her favorite designers while presenting herself in a new light. And even with the lower-key style, Campbell still manages to shine when it counts—like at the Golden Globes, when she pulled out two Atelier Versace gowns in a row. Once a supermodel, always a supermodel.
