Naomi Campbell may be 45, but she still looks incredible for her age. And to highlight this fact, the former supermodel shared a collage of photos reminiscing her modeling days. Campbell shared three photos side-by-side, all in bikinis, showing off her extra-long legs, with the hashtag “tbt” (“Throwback Thursday”) and several kiss emoticons for a caption.
While the post may come across to some as being arrogant or a little cheeky, Campbell’s fans seemed to approve. With over 10,000 likes in two hours, she just proved how timeless her beauty really is, and that she still persists as one of the greatest icons of the modeling world. As one admirer commented, “Naomi Campbell, you still a super model, a name, a legend [sic],” and another wrote, “QUEEN Naomi Campbell.”
One can hardly disagree, given the fact that Campbell began her career at the age of 15, and to this day, continues to work. Her current projects include recurring acting roles on the hit TV shows Empire and American Horror Story: Hotel, which also stars Lady Gaga.
On her debut in American Horror Story, Campbell confessed in a recent interview that she was extremely excited and “honored” at the same time when she was approached by one of the writers, Ryan Murphy. Campbell was brought on to play the role of Claudia Bankson, a strong, outspoken magazine fashion editor. Explaining how her modeling career helped shape her for her role, Campbell said, “I kind of know how it works at magazines, obviously, but I kind of wanted to make it more about her, and her life, and where she comes from as a person.”
