TIME WARP: Naomi Campbell Endears on The Tonight Show in 1996
There’s a secret part of us that loves Naomi Cambell when she’s at her tantrum-throwing worst — but there’s no denying that she’s totally endearing when at her best. Case-in-point her appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno in 1996. Sporting this year’s coveted crop chop, Cambell gets candid about how she keeps her stomach happy with Kenny Rodgers’ fried chicken, despite just meeting Leno for the first time. “I don’t diet, I don’t workout,” she says, much to to the dismay of all women, everywhere.
While there’s plenty to love about this interview, including her professing her love for her then-boyfriend, our favorite bit is when she reveals that she learned her famous walk from a couple of trannies. *Edtiors note: It’s all about walking on the ball of your foot, not your heel.
Whether you’re falling in love with her all over again, or realizing that she’s not a monster (just a Gemini), we invite you to get charmed by the 26-year-old supermodel below:
