Naomi Campbell has shared her expectations for a biopic. While a film or television project has not been confirmed, the supermodel already has qualifications for the leading actress in mind. In conversation with The Daily Mail, the 52-year-old explained who should step into her shoes.
“I would like it to be someone who is unknown and preferably someone from South London,” she remarked to the platform.
Campbell continued, “I’ve had my success, and I want to see the success of the next generation.”
The runway star forged her path in the fashion and modeling industry at a young age. Getting her start as a teenager, Campbell continues to dominate catwalks and magazine covers, breaking barriers for Black women within the industry for over 30 years.
Her historic career moments include being the first Black model to cover Vogue France, the first Black model to cover the September issue of Vogue in the United States, and more. She has also owned the runway for Marc Jacobs, Yves Saint Laurent, Chloé, Prada, Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, Karl Lagerfeld, Helmut Lang, Ralph Lauren, Jean Paul Gaultier, Tommy Hilfiger, and more.
While the globally recognized icon got her start over three decades ago, she still proves to be at the top of her game. This fall, she walked runways during Paris Fashion Week and recently became the face of Sam Edelman’s fall/winter collection.
With all of her accomplishments, Campbell shared with ELLE what she is most proud of in a new interview discussing the campaign.
“Which title am I the most honored to be? A mom,” she shared with the magazine. Campbell introduced her first daughter to the world in February.
When asked about the future of the fashion industry and Sam Edelman fostering new talent, she continued, “I’m all for it, and I hope that Sam Edelman and I can come together on this, since we both feel the same way about mentoring and guiding someone in these emerging markets who’ve been entrusted to design shoes. It would be perfect.”
