Naomi Campbell’s Mysterious ‘I’m Watching You’ Choker


Naomi Campbell gave testimony this morning at the war-crimes tribunal for former Liberian leader Charles Taylor in The Hague, saying she was handed "dirty-looking stones" by two strangers after a 1997 dinner party hosted by Nelson Mandela; she claims she gave the questionable rocks to charity. But never mind all that. What did she wear to court? A demure cream-colored knit dress and cardigan from Azzedine Alaïa's spring/summer collection. Classy enough. But look closer and you will see a mysterious choker with an "evil eye" on it. (It's just an eye to us, but ABC News called it evil, so it must be true.)

The model said testifying was "an inconvenience," and she was reluctant to do it at all: "This is someone [Charles Taylor] that I read up on the Internet that killed thousands of people supposedly and I don't want my family in any danger in any way." Perhaps this intimidating accessory was a warning, then! She's watching you, so watch out, buddy. [WWD, Houston Chronicle]
