Naomi Campbell Says Her Quarantine Wardrobe Consists of Elizabeth Taylor's Old Caftans
The supermodel says she has a collection of the late actress' pieces that she bought at auction
Naomi Campbell is finding comfort in her vintage wardrobe collection while self isolating at home.
Although she’s keeping it casual during the day like the rest of us, the supermodel recently revealed during a phone conversation with InStyle that she’s switching things up at night by wearing Elizabeth Taylor’s old caftans.
“I’m in the most practical clothes I could ever wear — T-shirts, sweats. It’s Adidas, it’s workout clothes, and the shoes are sneakers and slippers,” she told the outlet on Monday. “Then at night, to give a little change, I wear caftans. I’ve got some really great ones. I’ve got some I bought from Elizabeth Taylor’s auctions, so I have some of hers.”
But Campbell’s impressive collection of caftans doesn’t stop there: “I’ve got one from the Middle East. I’ve got some beautiful ones from Africa,” she said.
“I may dress up for something here and there — I wore something the other night for cooking with Jon Gray from “Gastronomical Cribs” with Ghetto Gastro. But again, it was a caftan,” the star said, when asked what she’s been wearing while staying inside amid the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
“I’m just chilled. I’m not counting days. I can’t. It’s just … this is what we’re in,” Campbell added.
Throughout the pandemic, the supermodel has vocalized her concern on social media while sharing encouraging and uplifting content with her fans — most recently through her live YouTube series No Filter with Naomi and her new Amazon Prime series Making the Cut.
“It’s giving hope and opportunities to many,” Campbell told InStyle of the new competition show (which also stars Tim Gunn and Heidi Klum). “There are many people out there who are probably going to look at it and say, ‘I could be on the next one,’ and that’s what it’s about. We want those people, worldwide. There are some amazing young, gifted designers out there who just don’t have the platform, or are able to get the connections that they need to get out there. This show gives that opportunity.”
“We have to stay in the light. We have to. To keep each other up every day,” Campbell said.
