Naomi Campbell turns 47 years young today, and regardless of the reputation the supermodel may have earned outside of the catwalk, the fact remains that Naomi’s walk is as fierce as her tongue, or her ‘tude, depending on who you ask.
At just 15 years old, Campbell was discovered while window-shopping in London, which is where the Afro-Jamaican and Chinese-Jamaican beauty was born. Her career took off immediately, and just one month before her 16th birthday she appeared on the cover of British Elle.

As we celebrate her legacy and another year of life, here’s a look back at Campbell doing what she does best — commanding attention on the catwalk. Here are her fiercest runway moments over the past two decades.
