As the whole world probably knows, Naomi Campbell was in court this week to appear as a witness in the case against Liberian dictator Charles Taylor. Although I have a keen interest in global politics, I couldn't help but focus on Naomi's beauty rather than her words.
The 40 year old model, who looks better than most women in their twenties, strutted into the witness stand in a cream modern Jacky O. inspired ensemble with killer heels to match. There are few women in the world that can make a fashion statement whilst testifying in front of the world's highest court and Campbell did not disappoint on this front. The retro up-do was an impressive nod to Prada's A/W1O catwalk show.
It is a shame that the content of her testimony was not as impressive as the outfit. Its lack of conclusiveness left me wondering whether a combination of hairspray fumes and a tight hair-weave meant that Miss Campbell couldn't give a good enough testimony that could put Mr Taylor behind bars for life (child soldiers....he makes me sick!)
Ps...the necklace she was wearing has the Turkish symbol for luck on it. Just an interesting fact I thought you might want to know.
