Naomi Campbell: “I really had no idea how to walk; I took what l learned from my days as a dancer and my mother’s advice. She used to show me how to walk in the passageway at home. And dance is great because it can help your posture.”
Naomi Campbell: “It’s life anything can happen. The runway could be slippery, shoes not scraped or clothes not closed properly. But you can always work it out to your advantage by not taking yourself too seriously. Don’t forget to have fun!”
Show The Clothes
Naomi Campbell: “Pay attention to what you are wearing and how it moves on you, how the shoes feel. Each outfit is different. Get a sense of the music and show ‘you’ but don’t show off.”
If You Take A Fall
Naomi Campbell: “My biggest fall was at the Vivienne Westwood show in Paris in 1993. But I got up, laughed and kept going. The shoes are now on display at the Victoria & Albert museum.”
