    Naomi Campbell started her career at the age of 15 when she was noticed on the street by a fashion recruiter. A year later, she went to Paris, where her rise to stardom commenced in earnest.

    British supermodel Naomi Campbell celebrates her birthday on 22 May.

    Known in some circles as the 'black panther', she has worked with dozens of famous couturiers throughout her 30-year-long career, and many of them fell victim to her beauty and professional attitude toward modelling.

    Days before she turned 51, Campbell shared a picture on Instagram, revealing that she has become a mother. She did not provide any details but said that she was absolutely happy to be blessed with a daughter.
