1. Naomi Will ALWAYS Be The Queen!

Naomi Campbell has been in the fashion industry for more than 20 years, and if you thought she was going to sit down, think again! The legendary supermodel is a mentor for her hit show, “The Face” and is STILL booking major runways and magazine covers worldwide. In honor of her 44th birthday, we want to celebrate the Queen herself and revisit some of her fabulous qualities and recent moments. Keep werking, Naomi!

2. She Doesn’t Mind Learning From Others

She can teach us how to walk anyday, but that doesn’t mean she isn’t willing to pick up a few cues, too. NeNe even had a chance to teach her the art of shade, hunny.

3. But, She Knows What She’s Talking About When It Comes To Racism In Her Own Industry

Naomi can have fun, but she’s serious about calling out designers who choose to not book Black models for their runway shows. Go, girl.

4. …Including Trans Models Trying To Break In The Industry

The industry is changing, but Naomi doesn’t mind being a part of that change. She recently celebrated trans model Carmen Carrera (who’s also starring in Tyra Banks’ new reality series: http://bit.ly/1gQCXDz) for breaking barriers.

5. She’s Just As Obsessed With Lupita N’yongo As We Are

Lupita has been having an amazing year and everyone knows it, including Naomi. The supermodel was just as excited to talk about Lupita as we are. Yes to sistahood!
