The art of beauty
Naomi Campbell’s rise to superstardom, among the greats of photography and fashion
Collector’s Edition of 1,000 copies, each signed by Naomi Campbell within a multiple artwork by Allen Jones.
Supermodel, entrepreneur, activist, provocateur. Since her teenage rise to stardom, Naomi Campbell has dazzled the world with her looks, her strength, and her irrepressible spirit. The first black model to grace the cover of French Vogue and TIME magazine, she has been the face of hundreds of magazine covers, countless editorials, and advertising campaigns, and a favorite subject for some of the best photographers of the ’80s, ’90s, and today.
This signed, limited, two-volume Collector’s Edition celebrates Campbell’s remarkable career amidst the greatest legends of fashion and photography with jaw-dropping images and exclusive autobiographical text. Volume 1 showcases the very best of Campbell’s portfolio, with photographs from the likes of Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, Richard Avedon, Anton Corbijn, Patrick Demarchelier, Helmut Newton, Herb Ritts, Mario Testino, Ellen von Unwerth, and Bruce Weber, and such unforgettable shoots as Peter Lindbergh’s joyful sequence of Naomi dancing as Josephine Baker on the beach in Deauville for Italian Vogue, or Jean-Paul Goude’s stunning composition of Naomi racing a cheetah for U.S. Harper's Bazaar.
Volume 2 features Naomi’s extensive autobiographical text, illustrated by magazine covers, ads, never-before-seen personal snapshots, video stills, and more. Naomi recalls her childhood; the beginning of her modeling career; her work with fashion’s greatest designers, including Azzedine Alaïa, John Galliano, Marc Jacobs, Karl Lagerfeld, Gianni Versace; and experiencing the meteoric rise to superstardom. Photographer biographies and an illustrated appendix are also included.
