Naomi Campbell's style transformation

One of the all-time greats of the fashion world, Ms Naomi Campbell, turns 44 today - although you'd never guess it from her incredible physique.

One of the original posse of ground-breaking "supers", Naomi was born in London on May 22, 1970. She began modelling at age 15 and has rarely been out of the spotlight since, strutting the catwalk for everyone from Vivienne Westwood to Jean Paul Gaultier.

Naomi's approach to fashion and life in general has always been fearless and she's never shied away from a challenge, whether that's showcasing an itsy bitsy Chanel bikini, schmoozing with world leaders such as Nelson Mandela or fronting out that infamous catwalk tumble.

Naomi was the first black female model to make the front cover of Vogue, was once engaged to U2’s Adam Clayton, appeared in Madonna’s infamous Sex book and dabbled in a singing career, a perfume launch and a reality TV stint, on top of all her modelling.

Come look back on her extraordinary career on the catwalk and beyond, from 1989 to today:
