Everyone knows Naomi Campbell can strike a killer pose — the girl has been doing it for decades — but the supermodel’s dramatic stint on Empire has proven she can capture a pretty wide range of emotion on screen, too.
Naomi, 46, appears in a bold new shoot for W magazine, highlighting her crazy-long legs above all else. And in an accompanying interview, she explained how she goes all-in with emotion when the camera is rolling.
‘I just go to that place of pain,’ she told the publication, explaining how she manages to cry on demand.
Her body as enviable as ever, Naomi poses in color and black-and-white for the high-fashion magazine, adopting a series of power-stances.
In one frame, the 5′ 9″ stunner dons a La Perla bodysuit, sheer at the middle to show her toned tummy and finished off with clear Gianvito Rossi ankle boots.
In another, she offers a peek at her backside as she is half-zipped into a pair of Vetements x Manolo Blahnik waist-high boots that only someone with legs as longs as her could pull off.
She glows in a Michael Kors Collection gown in another image and pays homage to the ’70s in a fourth, rocking a crocheted Moschino top and pants with her hands on her hips.
The model-turned-actress — who shares a drama coach with Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise — was happy to talk about Empire, but mostly in a way to tease her fans.
Speaking of her character Camilla Marks, she remarked on a scene from last season: ‘She definitely drank poison, but I can’t say if she died…’
Naomi also has another acting project on the horizon: She’ll appear in anew musical drama, Star, which is set to premiere next year.
Like Empire, Star was created by Lee Daniels. It will also star Lenny Kravitz and Queen Latifah.
‘The energy is so great — it makes you want to get up and dance and sing,’ Naomi said.
Naomi also noted that modeling and acting aren’t really so different after all, as they both rely on doing what you’re told.
‘I’ve always taken direction as a model. Whether working with photographers like Richard Avedon or designers like Marc Jacobs, I’ve always asked them, “What would you like of me?”‘
