Naomi Campbell Never Diets
Naomi Campbell has never struggled with her weight.
The 42-year-old British supermodel - who mentors aspiring models on new show The Face - has never had to rely on diet or exercise to stay slim and she loves to eat good food.
"I don't really know about weight or age. Weight was never something that was part of my time and I worked everyday. I've never struggled with weight and I think food is pleasurable," she said.
But she admits she is "still blessed to be working" in such a competitive industry and thinks up and coming models need to be prepared to stand out to get noticed as they have a lot of competition from actresses when it comes to landing campaigns and magazine covers: "You're up against a lot of girls going for the same job, and they only want a selected few, so you really do have to have something outstanding to catch their eye. In general the world is more competitive these days and there is no real preparation, so it's definitely harder to book the cover of a magazine. It's definitely harder to book in advertising, because they don't just use models anymore."
