The Fashion Bomb News Breakdown: Naomi Campbell Recalls The Moment She Realized She Was Beautiful, Gemma Ward Returns to Modeling, and Rocsi Diaz Joins Entertainment Tonight

Naomi Campbell was no doubt always unfairly beautiful, but she says she didn’t always know it. When a reporter asked her when she knew she was good-looking at a launch event for The Face, the legendary supermodel said, “I think when I thought that I didn’t look too bad, is when I was a huge Culture Club fan and I used to get hats and stick them on with Sellotape – and all the braids – so that I’d look like Boy George. And that’s when I thought I was okay.” I guess looking stunning in questionable ‘fits is something Miss Naomi’s been doing for years! (Vogue UK)
