    Encore: Naomi Campbell's Model Behaviour | Cover Girl

    We've delved into the Terribly Famous archives to bring back one of our favourite series. Naomi Campbell is a fashion icon, still killing it on the catwalk in her fifties. To some, she’s a role model. But it wasn’t always that way. Over the next three episodes, we'll tell the story of how a young Black model scaled the heights of the fashion world, but had to fight to get treated right. Until that fight spilled over into an anger she couldn’t control.

PujaBaruah ,

Brilliant show!

I loved Adele’s story narrated over 5 episodes with the right touch of humour, drama and side commentary. In fact the side commentary
Pretty much made my day!
