One of our favorite models, Joan Smalls covers the July 2012 issue of W. Magazine, but we were even more excited to find beautiful spread featuring iconic supermodel Naomi Campbell inside the ‘zine, as part of a promotional campaign for her new Oxygen show “The Face.”
Here’s some details via DailyMail:
The 42-year-old has modeled a range of luxurious high-end ensembles during a photoshoot for the July issue of W magazine.
The shoot is part of a promotional run that the model is currently in the midst of as she prepares for the launch of a new TV reality series titled The Face.
The supermodel, who lives in Moscow with her Russian billionaire boyfriend Vladislav Doronin, will mentor aspiring models on the show, which is being made by Oxygen network.
As styled by Giovanna Battaglia, she has been photographed for W in designs by Louis Vuitton, Miu Miu, Prada, Marc Jacobs, Dolce & Gabbana, Etro and Mary Katrantzou.
Photographed by Australian-born snapper Emma Summerton, she also shows off a range of accessories such as a Fendi iPad case, a Missoni clutch, a Bally handbag and Yves Saint Laurent heels.
Miss Campbell, who is rumoured to be looking to buy a villa in Ibiza with Mr Doronin, offered the magazine some advice for younger, less experienced models.
She said: ‘Whatever you do, do it 110per cent. That’s what my mother taught me, and it’s what I’ve always believed in.’
It seems that the model had prepared plenty of advice in preparation for her small screen role.
Two other high-profile personalities will join Miss Campbell on the show but they are yet to be announced.
Each of the contestants on the show will be competing to become the face of a major brand.
Miss Campbell herself has fronted campaigns for Valentino and Ralph Lauren, as well as Hilton hotels and Dunkin’ Donuts over the years.
In a press release announcing the news, she said: ‘With The Face the audience will get a real insider’s look at this exciting industry that has been so good to me.
She told W magazine that she is a big fan of reality TV.
‘I love the Real Housewives – all of them,’ she said. ‘Of course, I would never expose myself in that way. But I’m happy to share my experiences.’
We can’t wait to see Naomi on her new show — really just for the pure fashion of it. We still remember when she dressed up every day to do community service. That b!tch knows how to serve it…
