Naomi Campbell Won’t Hold Signs on the Runway

Joel West

Model Joel West: "One of my favorite moments that always comes to mind is when I walked the Versace show in Milan and Naomi Campbell was opening the show as the big special guest. It was a mens’ show so they had her like a 'ring girl' carrying a sign down the runway. We met in the middle on the runway and she said 'Here, you take this, I’m sick of holding it.' I was like 'I don’t think I’m supposed to have this sign' but you know, Naomi told me to, so I took the sign. I was like 'Really? You have to walk down one time and you can’t hold this sign?' At least she didn’t throw it at me, right?" []
