*Naomi Campbell has teamed up with Italian brand Yamamay for an exclusive, limited-edition collection of lingerie, which includes bras, panties, slips and camisoles priced between $32 and $65. The supermodel also stars in the ads for the “IamNaomiCampbell” collection, which was shot my famed fashion photographer Mario Testino.
According to WWD, the range will boast “a nocturnal color palette, including black and purple, and enriched with precious decors.” As of now, Campbell’s collection is available on Yamamay’s website, which does not ship to the U.S.
Campbell’s entry into the lingerie world seems overdue, as fashionista.com notes, other supermodels such as Helena Christensen, Gisele Bündchen, Heidi Klum, Bar Rafaeli and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley already have their own lines or have collaborated with established brands.
The “IamNaomiCampbell” collection features lingerie sets with such fierce names as “Supervillain” and “Magnificent.” Of course, as you admire Campbell’s flawless form in these ads, it’s no wonder lingerie brands like Agent-Provocateur and La Perla have hired her for campaigns.

Meanwhile, Campbell, who has been at the top of her game for nearly 30 years, has also turned her hand to acting – with roles in “Empire” and “American Horror Story: Hotel” as Vogue editor Claudia Bankson.
In a interview with The Independent, Campbell revealed that she landed the role of Claudia partly because of Anna Wintour – the infamous editor-in-chief of U.S. Vogue.
“She sat me next to [series co-creator] Ryan [Murphy] at a dinner party, so I should really thank her,” said Campbell who also plays Camilla Marks on “Empire.”
Murphy recalled that meeting with Campbell during a chat with Entertainment Weekly. “I was at a dinner party, and I sat next to Naomi Campbell, and obviously I’ve always loved her,” Murphy shared. “I said, ‘We’re writing this episode and do you wanna come on the show and play something extreme?'”
“She was very excited about her upcoming moments that she has that push the boundaries,” Murphy added. “So I said, ‘Great.’ I offered it to her and she accepted. She’s very professional.”
