Naomi Campbell in her youth
Naomi was born in the spring of 1970 in Britain. The parents of the future model divorced when she was less than six months old. The mother insisted that her ex-husband did not take any part in her daughter’s life. The mother raised her daughter on her own. Valerie Morris was not the last person in the art world. She was one of the most famous ballerinas in London. Naomi is of Afro-Jamaican descent.
When Naomi was in her teens, her mother remarried. The girl could watch the flexible movements of her dancer-mother for hours. From Valerie, her daughter inherited plasticity and flexibility of movements, which were extremely useful to her on the podium.
Valerie thought that her daughter would be engaged in dancing. Naomi had great potential in ballet, already at the age of seven, she took part in the filming of the video for the Bob Marley track. The song was called “This love?” When the baby was ten years old, she started going to ballet school. In the future, Naomi saw herself exclusively as a ballerina.
Valerie’s remarriage caused the suffering of young Naomi – she constantly quarreled with her stepfather. Because of the conflicts, the girl even tried to appear at home as little as possible. Sometimes she purposely stayed late into the night so as not to accidentally run into a man.

Did Naomi Campbell have plastic surgery?
Fans of the model note that she still looks great. Time seemed to have barely touched her. Naomi is in great physical shape, she is still beautiful and elegant. In the fashion world, Campbell is known as a person with impeccable taste. She is not afraid to experiment with her appearance. She appeared in feathers and fringe, her outfits sparkled with rhinestones. The star loves to shine the most, so she often chooses dresses with sparkling trim.
Naomi has never hidden that she loves wigs. At the same time, she does not hesitate to wear them not only at fashion shows but also in everyday life. It is known that wigs at some point became a salvation for the star. The fact is that by nature she has very weak and brittle hair, which is constantly split and falling out. Naomi tries not to be photographed by journalists without bright makeup and a wig.
The press often wrote that the model resorted to the services of plastic surgeons. Fans noticed that the girl’s facial features became more subtle. No one knows what caused the changes in the appearance of the star – plastic surgery, or time. Naomi herself did not comment on the rumors.
Some believe that she has undergone many plastic surgeries: rhinoplasty, facelift, blepharoplasty, and liposuction.
If you look at the photo of Naomi in her youth and now, it is obvious that the plump lips and the shape of the eyes have not changed.
But, most likely, Naomi Campbell had a nose job. After rhinoplasty, the bridge of the nose and the tip of the nose became much narrower.
Throughout Naomi Campbell’s career, no noticeable changes in her figure have been observed, so rumors about liposuction are most likely fiction.
