The Fashion Bomb News Breakdown: Naomi Campbell is Always Fashionably Late, Freida Pinto For Interview Magazine, And House of Harlow 1960 Introduces Handbag Line

Premier Model Management agent Carole White reminisced with the UK Telegraph about her glorious days managing Naomi Campbell. She said, “Naomi was less disciplined and used to get me into trouble. Mostly it was because she was late, but sometimes she just didn’t turn up. I used to lie to her about what time she had to be at a job, but she soon worked that out, so I had to lie further. If the call time was 10am, I would tell her it was 8am so she would think it was 9am, but I still had to cross my fingers that she’d be on time. She missed planes too. Once after she missed a flight to Austria I had to organize a private jet to get her to the job because the money was so huge she had to be there.” Damn, Naomi, how you gonna be on CP time?
