NAOMI CAMPBELL’S GOOD SIDE

Excerpted from www.modelsblog.info.

The latest Naomi Campbell news doesn’t involve swearing, phone-throwing or generally bad behavior — the supermodel was all elegance and smiles in Miami last Tuesday for the opening of an exhibition of fashion photography featuring a retrospective collection of pictures of herself.

“In Fashion Photo,” an open-air exhibition in Miami’s Design District, has more than 250 photos by critically acclaimed fashion photographers like Patrick Demarchelier and Mario Testino, including a special section of 52 images of Ms. Campbell taken over the more than 20 years of her modeling career.

The high-glamour exhibit, timed to coincide with the international art fair Art Basel Miami Beach, offers a reminder of the beautiful magazine spreads and advertising images that Ms. Campbell helped to create. It can be easy to forget this side of the model, who made headlines this year and last for off-the-runway tantrums such as kicking police officers in London’s Heathrow airport in April. Last year, Ms. Campbell was sentenced to a week of community service in Manhattan for throwing a cellphone at a maid.

Since April, however, Ms. Campbell has been relatively controversy free. She’s currently the face of Yves Saint Laurent’s Fall 2008 advertising campaign.
