British supermodel Naomi Campbell swooped into town on Thursday to make her Singaporean catwalk debut at Digital Fashion Week.
According to an article in The New Paper, the four-day festival — held at the National Design Centre — features Campbell on the catwalk for Singaporean designer Zenchi.
At 5pm, an excited group of journalists and fashion designers gathered at Eden Hall, the British High Commissioner’s Residence at Nassim Road to bask in her glory.
It wasn’t until 7.30pm that Campbell, 43, made her entrance. “Flight delay,” she claimed, offering apologies.
In between that and the smiles, all was forgiven.
Her girly side came out when she revealed her plans for her day in Singapore.
“I’m happy to be here...I know I’m going to go shopping after. I’ve been saving up my time and not buying any gadgets!”
She was looking forward to food, too. “Definitely spicy food... I’m part Chinese and I’m so happy to eat, I can’t wait!”
Campbell is part African, Jamaican and Chinese. When the press conference was over 10 minutes later, she was overheard asking where to shop for gadgets.
“It’s an entire building of gadgets?” she asked.
And when she spotted someone taking a photo of her with a white mobile phone, she reportedly went after the guy to find out the model.
