Long before Lily Donaldson, Cara Delevingne, Jourdan Dunn, and Edie Campbell, there was Naomi Campbell — the O.G. British supermodel (and arguably the best, alongside her BFF, the one-and-only Kate Moss).

Naomi is still at the very top of her game, despite being discovered way back when in 1986. She stars on the current covers of both Paper and AnOther Magazine, not to mention her very own $2,500 coffee table book (which came out earlier this year), chronicling her 30-year career in the fashion industry.
