- “Icon, goddess, London girl. Indulge in a spot of Naomi worship with this new book.”
- “Few models can lay claim to such an unmistakable body, or to the unmistakable body of work inside. Campbell has coyly played Eve for Peter Lindbergh, raced against a cheetah for Jean-Paul Goude, and transformed into a silvery cyborg for Seb Janiak. Campbell has built the kind of persona that warrants a two-volume coffee-table book by tempering her out-of-this-world looks with a heavy dose of realness.”

The Art of Beauty
Naomi Campbell’s rise to superstardom, among the greats of photography and fashion
This signed, limited two-volume Collector’s Edition celebrates Campbell’s remarkable career amid 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, Steven Meisel, Helmut Newton, Herb Ritts, Paolo Roversi, 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.
In a dazzling meeting of art and fashion, Volume 1 is presented in a multiple artwork by British pop art luminary Allen Jones. Best known for his controversial fetish furniture, Allen Jones has maintained a uniquely striking visual language ever since the emergence of Pop in the 1950s. In sculpture, painting, and lithography, he merges female figuration with the iconography of city life, consumerism, and spectacle. Jones’s work has been exhibited in solo shows around the world, most recently in a major retrospective at the Royal Academy, London. For the Naomi Campbell Art Edition, Jones’s artwork deploys stylized contours and smooth surfaces to invoke a sense of touch, while exploring the role of the supermodel in contemporary culture. In Jones’s words, “it does not attempt to illustrate Naomi, but to encapsulate her.”
