After a four-year trial, former Liberian president Charles Taylor has been found guilty of involvement in Sierra Leone’s civil war.
Clad in an Azzedine Alaia cream skirt and cardigan, Naomi Campbell finally testified today in the Hague in the war crimes trial against former Liberian president Charles Taylor and accused warlord. Though the model has spent the last few months trying desperately to avoid testimony — she refused to address the topic on Oprah and knocked down an ABC News camera after being asked about it — a court subpoena gave her no other choice.
