May 22, the supermodel and fashion icon Naomi Campbell turned 50! It's hard to believe, because the incomparable Naomi is still in perfect shape and can beat a new generation of models. To celebrate the diva's anniversary, Valentino published a series of black and white photographs taken last year for the brand's pre-fall 2019 campaign. Due to the rather frank nature of the shooting, these photos remained in the archives but, fortunately, were showed last Friday.
Naomi Campbell appeared in front of the camera wearing nothing but a Valentino handbag while sitting in the subway car or roaming around the station. In the very first picture posted in Valentino's ******* account Naomi does not cover herself up, that is why it was deleted by the administration of the social network.
Pierpaolo Piccioli posted a photo of Naomi from this provocative series in his account as well, saying that during the filming all safety precautions were taken. However, it was decided to publish all these photos only now.
Creative director of Valentino also wrote a touching greeting for the model. "Happy birthday Naomi. I wish that this day will be joyful and full of love, because you deserve it all. You are special for a lot of reasons, and the most special one, to me, is your fierce, delicate and compassionate humanity. Thank you for your friendship", he said.
