Naomi Campbell opened up to Harper’s Bazaar for the March issue, where she talked about aging, plastic surgery and her place in the fashion world.
On her diet: “For me, carbs are a treat now.”
Campbell, 41, is vigilant about her beauty routine too: steams, facials—“everything I can to keep my skin elasticated.” She says plastic surgery is fine “for those who do it for themselves and not to please someone else,” but she isn’t fazed about getting older. “I don’t worry about a number, I’m fine with aging.”
On her past: “Look, you have to make mistakes. That’s how you learn and that’s how the world works,” she says. “I’ve made a few.”
“What makes a person is the ability to look at themselves and deal with their own lives,” Campbell says. “How you deal [with your actions] is what defines you.”
On her career: While she’s made headlines for her antics and activism off the runway, Campbell, at her core, is still a supermodel. “But I would never call myself that,” she says, laughing. “I don’t have any superhuman powers.”
“I still love what I do,” she says. “It’s a new challenge to see how people can change your look. I like words like transformation, reinvention, and chameleon. Because one word I don’t like is predictable.”
