Naomi Campbell honoured at the British Fashion Council

Supermodel Naomi Campbell was recently honoured at the British Fashion Council and received an award for Fashion Icon. Here’s what she had to say about it – “It’s an honour to be called it, it is. I don’t think of myself as an icon but I respect and am very honoured to receive and blessed that they consider me to be one. I’m not trying to compete with anybody, I just like what I do and I don’t do the same thing every day so it’s a bit of a mix-up and I like it that way.”

She also went on to say that whilst she has been in the industry for several decades now, she has never had a strategy when it comes to her work and that her biggest tip is just to make sure that people take time out for themselves. She said, “I don’t have a strategy. I would work, and then I would not work. You’d see me, and then I’d disappear and do something else and come back. That’s how I’ve basically kept... That’s been the way of my path. I would never quit, I would just take time out. And I think you have to take time out for yourself in life, period, you have to go and do the things you want to do.”        - IANS
