>> It had me wondering, and it probably had you wondering too: why was Naomi Campbell wearing the likes of a chinchilla coat, Chanel newsboy cap and Louboutin stiletto boots to her community service job this week at the Department of Sanitation? If I was doing community service at the Sanitation office, there's no way I would be wearing my best.
But maybe I would think differently if Steven Klein was taking my picture. Naomi recently shot the July cover for W magazine with Klein, and yesterday he was taking pictures of her as she walked out of the sanitation office. Part of the inside editorial for W, maybe? Just hope that Klein doesn't take the theme too literally and have us end up with a trashy editorial (sorry, couldn't resist).
UPDATE: The Telegraph has confirmed with Patrick McCarthy, editorial director of W: the pictures will run across 20 pages in the July issue. Also of interesting note: Naomi's basic rate is between £25,000 and £30,000 per day (the shoot ran all last week -- you do the math). And the estimated cost of her outfits last week (many of the pieces from Fall/Winter 2007 collections): £236,136. Not too shabby for a week of scrubbing a few toilets and such.
