Naomi Campbell Did Strict Ten-Day Juice Cleanse Before Return to Catwalk for Versace
Not only did Naomi Campbell look amazing for her return to the catwalk this past summer, she was also very, very well-hydrated. The impossibly stunning British supermodel, now 43, revealed to The Edit the secret to her slim body and healthy glow: juicing. And lots of it. Like, ten days of it -- and nothing else.
Speaking to the online fashion magazine about her fitness regimen, Campbell shared, "I don't want to build muscle, just to tone. I'm not extreme about what I eat – I let chocolate and crisps [potato chips] come in. You just have to allow the little things that make you happy." That said, she allowed, sometimes she has to be more extreme. "For ten days prior to the Versace show, I just drank juice -- carrot, ginger, pineapple -- to cleanse."
It worked. The leggy model and The Face mentor made headlines for her utter flawlessness when she strutted down the catwalk at the Versace show in Paris this June. Despite the press' rapturous response to her runway return, Campbell admitted to being insecure when she walked out, opening the show, and there was silence (later, she would find out it was because the audience was simply mesmerized): "I was quite stunned at the reaction -- I remember the room being quiet and I thought, 'Oh my God, they don't want me here!', " she said.
"It was emotional for me to do the show after 14 years," she continued. "I knew about it for months and couldn't tell anyone. When I did my fitting in those amazing clothes, it was just overwhelming.
