Celebrity Naomi Campbell shows off her Body Type One (BT1) figure/shape during her vacation at the beach with friends and family including her ex-boyfriend Vladislav Doronin. The candid images reveal no signs of skinny fat (cellulite, thin fat, loose skin, saggy skin, crepey skin, normal weight obesity) anywhere on her body. The full development of her vertebra/posture and muscles/muscle mass is obvious.
Science recognizes that one pound of muscle burns six calories daily, but one pound of fat/skinny fat only burns two to three calories. Which directly affects metabolism. Even since giving birth to her first child, having so many developed vertebrae, muscles, and muscle mass assists greatly in terms of metabolism (BMR) and metabolic rate, including aging gracefully.
BMI and genetics/DNA are important. But diet, exercise, and lifestyle also matter. It will be interesting to see how well Naomi Campbell maintains her body shape figure as she continues to age.
Naomi Campbell Figure/Shape – BT1
Supermodel Naomi Campbell displays her Body Type One shape/figure while taking time off at the ocean. Her entertainment career began in 1978 at the very young age of 8 when she appeared in a Bob Marley music video for the song Is This Love. Having studied dance from age 3, including ballet, with the intention of being a dancer, she tap-danced in the Culture Club music videos I’ll Tumble 4 Ya (1983) and Mistake number 3 (1984). However, as a student at the Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts, in 1986 her path led to modeling when she was scouted and signed by the head of the Synchro Model Agency, Beth Boldt, debuting on the cover of the British magazine version of Elle.
Her steady rise to fame over the next few years involved modeling and walking the catwalk for diverse famous fashion designers including Gianni Versace, Azzedine Alaïa, and Isaac Mizrahi. She also posed for the renowned photographers Peter Lindbergh, Herb Ritts, and Bruce Weber. By the late 1980s, while overcoming institutional racism and discrimination she formed the trio known as the “Trinity” alongside models Christy Turlington and Linda Evangelista, becoming the most in-demand and recognizable models of their generation.

Along with Turlington, Evangelista, Cindy Crawford, and Claudia Schiffer, she subsequently formed the elite group of models declared “supermodels” by the fashion industry. Newcomer Kate Moss was eventually added to collectively become known as the “Big Six”. Interview magazine named Naomi Campbell the reigning supermodel of them all in 1990. However, despite representing her since 1987 and all her success, Elite Model Management fired her in 1993 on the grounds that “no amount of money or prestige could further justify the abuse” to staff and clients.
Her long successful career boasts gracing British Vogue (appearing with Turlington, Evangelista, Crawford, and Tatjana Patitz), French Vogue (first black model), American Vogue (including the first time a black model graced the front of the September magazine, traditionally the year’s biggest and most important issue), Italian Vogue (all-black version), Vogue Australia, Vanity Fair, Essence (40th-anniversary), Playboy, British GQ, and British Harper’s Bazaar, to name a few. As well, she has done advertising campaigns and walked for the likes of Dolce & Gabbana, Yves St. Laurent, Vivienne Westwood, Christian Dior, Marc Jacobs, Chloé, Diane Von Furstenberg, Prada, Chanel, Givenchy, Burberry, Zac Posen, Blumarine, Karl Lagerfeld, Gianfranco Ferré, Versace, Helmut Lang, John Galliano, Ralph Lauren, Jean Paul Gaultier, Tommy Hilfiger, Oscar de la Renta, Michael Kors, Anna Sui, Louis Vuitton, Hermés, Marchesa, Roberto Cavalli, and Valentino.
Moreover, she partook in the closing ceremony of the 2012 Olympic Games modeling haute couture representing British fashion. She also appeared in music videos for Michael Jackson, Duran Duran, and Anohni. Naomi Campbell’s demanding fashion and supermodel responsibilities help with maintaining her body shape figure by increasing her metabolic rate thus burning more calories to keep excess fat weight at bay.
