The 44-year-old supermodel news how to work a coat (Michael Kors above and Burberry Prorsum atop), doesn’t she? Rocking high end looks from Net-a-Porter’s site including Givenchy, Burberry, Lanvin, La Perla, Calvin Klein Collection and more, Naomi Campbell is letting folks in on her charmed life.

From being a teen model/theater prodigy to ruling the supermodel & fashion world for decades….Naomi’s still slaying in everything she does.

Read excerpts from the interview:

She’s gearing up for her role in Lee Daniels’ upcoming show “Empire”

Right now, Campbell is living between London, New York and Chicago, where she is filming the forthcoming Lee Daniels-directed TV drama called Empire, based around a hip-hop family. She plays Camilla, a love interest. “I am connected to one of the sons. It’s fun. I am blessed – I can kiss someone else and it’s only acting,” she giggles.

She’s still got that sass

With that, she piles her multiple, incessantly bleeping tech devices into a sheepskin Givenchy handbag that is stuffed with all those regular things like a hairbrush, makeup and cash. She’s off to see Mario Testino. “For a casting. After 28 years, he wants me to go to a casting!” Campbell winks and makes her exit, still the queen of the walk.

Her runway ritual

“I still get SCARED; I cross myself before I go onto the RUNWAY. I PRAY my dress isn’t going to fall off.”

Her thoughts on the previous Ebola crisis

“The next time I travel, I will have a mask, latex gloves, bleach and sprays. I travel so much you have to do whatever you have to do to
make yourself feel safe until we are told otherwise,” she says.
Nelson Mandela always said to me, ‘Use yourself to help other people.’ I feel that now more strongly than ever before and I try
to do that in the best way I can.”

On holding her fashion family closely

“If people are down, you help them up,” she says. “If we are in the same town at the same time, we always have dinner. Or if I’m doing an event, my homies are coming!”
