There’s no supermodel quite like Naomi Campbell, thanks to her legendary walk. Models around the world try to replicate it and look to her for inspiration when they’re trying to make their mark in the fashion industry.

She’s walked for every high-fashion designer name in the books. Think Chanel, Dior, Alaïa, Oscar de la Renta, and Versace, and that’s just scratching the surface. Naomi also helped break barriers for black models in the industry when she appeared on the cover of French Vogue in 1988.

One moment no one can forget is when she fell during Vivienne Westwood’s Fall 1993 show and just kept smiling. We’ll also never forgot the moment that she shut down Milan Fashion Week with the OG supermodel gang, Cindy Crawford, Claudia Schiffer, Helena Christensen, and Carla Bruni. They all walked in sparkly gold gowns to honor the 20th anniversary of Gianni Versace’s death. Keep reading to see 44 times Naomi Campbell proved she’s the definition of a supermodel.
