The book goes on telling the stories when they - Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington, Cindy Crawford, Kate Moss, and Naomi herself - were young and rising models in their twenties, though "none of them really understood what impact they were having" on their audience. This also led them to make a couple of public mistakes. Once Naomi and the other models wanted to show the journalist "how much fun they were having," but it turned into a complete disaster. "We were dragging a heavily pregnant woman around with us to these different places trying to show her how cool we were. [...] We came across as brats. That wasn't our intention," Campbell acknowledges that their inducements were misunderstood. "We didn't understand how it might be perceived differently. None of us had PRs to advise us," the model continues explaining the different nature of those years in her autobiography.

It was a completely new and unaccustomed world for the aspiring models, even not with a prefix "super" at that time. They were genuinely surprised by the people's level of attention.  "Everything we wore and every restaurant we went to was written about in the papers. It seemed weird to us that people should care. We couldn't walk down the street without people chasing us," Naomi remembers. Once, they even had to be rescued by the police.
