The unconventional Naomi Campbell

Naomi Campbell is a diva with a capital "D." The British actress and model has been in the news since she was 15, and her net worth is estimated at $60 million. The diva status comes with a number of eccentricities. She can afford them.

Exemplary hygiene

The model has often caught attention for the ways she protects herself against germs on airplanes. Her travel routine, sometimes ridiculed, is now an example in times of coronavirus.

Travelling with Naomi

On her YouTube channel, 'Being Naomi', the model shows her beauty tricks or her day-to-day life. In one of her latest videos, the queen of extravagance explains in a very graphic way how she travels.

A peculiar outfit

During one of her journeys, Naomi Campbell surprised crew and fellow passengers with her head-to-toe jumpsuit, mask, gloves and XXL glasses. It was a look more appropriate, experts commented, for going to a radioactive zone than for a flight from Los Angeles to New York.

Plastic and Burberry

The complement the outfit, Campbell wore a Burberry cloak. It is one of the model's favourite brands.

A cloak of almost $3,000

The cloak has a market price of $2,790 and is made of cashmere and lambskin.

Burberry in the trash

The best part of this is, of course, that the cloak was going to get dirty in the plane. So what did Naomi Campbell do when she arrived in New York? She threw it in the trash.

Don't touch your face

The trip and outfit sparked a debate on social media about exaggerated hygiene and decadence. What's more, in the same video assistants touch the top model's face to put on her earrings. And that is one of the most important rules in preventing contagious diseases: don't touch your face!

An inconsistency?

Commenters on social media pointed out that Naomi Campbell may be very afraid of viruses and germs, but she also ignores the World Health Organization's recommendations of avoiding contact and keeping your hands away from your face.

Hydrate when flying

Hygiene measures were not the only ones promoted by the top model. She also showed her audience that she hydrates extremely well before take-off. She does it both on the inside and the outside, with serums and creams.

Naomi Campbell's cleansing ritual

Before she travels, Naomi Campbell makes sure everything is perfectly clean and germ-free. She goes over every travel item thoroughly and carries her own gloves and disinfectant wipes on the plane.

The seat cover: a must

Naturally, Naomi Campbell's routine includes not touching the fabric of the plane seats. She brings her own seat cover and does not care what other people think of that. It's her health and she decides how to protect it.

Not without a mask

Finally, since other travellers often cough or sneeze, the model wears a mask that she does not remove until she steps off the plane at her destination.

Naomi Campbell and airports: a dangerous combination

Airports are a source of germs and stress for Naomi Campbell. Here, she sometimes shows a bad temper. Among her altercations on airports was a confrontation with London police in 2008 over her luggage.

A world-famous temper

What happened? Apparently, one of her suitcases could not come along on the plane as she wanted, and the model flew into an epic rage. British media report that she insulted and assaulted some of the British Airways staff.

Naomi Campbell: in custody

Her fury was such that police had to intervene. She then attacked the police officers and even spat on them. Finally, Campbell was expelled from the aircraft and arrested.

Naomi Campbell's phone is a weapon

It was not the first arrest for the top model. Campbell had already been arrested in 2006 for assaulting one of her assistants. She allegedly threw a phone at her, inflicting a wound on the back of the assistant's neck. In 2000 she had been convicted by a Canadian court for hitting another assistant with her phone as well.

Jeans were the cause

In 2006, the reason for the phone assault was the disappearance of a pair of jeans. Campbell claimed that she merely threw the device in the air and that it was only bad luck that it hit her assistant Ana Scalovino in the neck. The assistant needed 4 stitches.

Sentenced to community service

Campbell was sentenced to community service, anger management workshops and a fine.

Shopping for fruit

One of Campbell's eccentricities is that she likes to go grocery shopping herself. It is not all about leisure, though. In her Youtube show she admits that she cannot let other people pick her fruit for her.

A trendsetter in times of COVID-19

Naomi Campbell is not a woman in the mainstream. But in times of a global pandemic, she turns out to be somewhat of a trendsetter.
