WERQ: Naomi Campbell in Azzedine Alaïa

Posted on February 07, 2013

We thought she was serving up goddess on a silver platter in the last post, but bitches?


Naomi Campbell attends the premiere of ‘The Face’ in New York City in an Azzedine Alaïa gown.

You best be bowing down at the moment.

Good God, look at that ring. Elizabeth Taylor is looking down from heaven, rolling her neck, and muttering, “DAMN, girl,” at the sight of it.

You WERQ that Reverse-Morticia shit, Miss Lady! Snaps of AWE.

    I’m totally on board with it–until you get to her ankles.  Then I’m cocking my head a bit.  Still, Naomi Campbell gets WERQ points just for being fabulous, pretty much all the time.  She’s been looking fantastic lately (always?)

    • gabbilevy


    • Yeah, I can’t get behind the weird lampshade at the bottom of her dress, nor the platform shoes, either. But wow, the rest of her is pretty fab.

      • Tatiana Luján

        I think the lamshade thing is super fun, but  I can’t not want to vomit at the spice girls kind of platform.
        Those shoes should NEVER  be part of the same outfit of that necklace.

        • sharonimus


      • Louise Bryan

        Glad I’m not the only one put out by the lampshade (actually that’s a terrific analogy; I was saying weird stiff flounce until I read that).

  • Annabelle Archer

    White platform shoes and a lamp shade bottomed dress make for a WERQ? No. 
    But I do like the big ass ring. 

    • I can’t and I don’t think I will ever be able to with the platform shoes! I don’t care if they are Lobosomethings, they scream STRIPPER to me.

      • Tatiana Luján

        or Spice Girl.

  • I love how her Wikipedia page has a section for “Assault Charges” …

  • Diego!

    I’m speechless… she looks stunning!!! You go crazy girl! 😀

  • Well yes, but I really don’t like it.

    • SassieCassy

      i like naomi but not this outfit esp. the bottom. naomi is always a werq tho.

  • Loving it top to peculiar bottom.  I love that the lower part of the skirt makes the dress look like a rocket ship from a cheesy 50s Sci Fi film. (in a VERY good way) I keep expecting the hem to start belching flames and smoke, and for Naomi to slowly rise, gathering speed, till she disappears into the heavens.

    • Jacqueline Wessel

      Nice analogy…I hope the belched flames burn those shoes though.

      • Oh, but the shoes house the booster rockets, for that extra burst of speed. Perfect for escaping police after an assault.

        • Jacqueline Wessel

          I guess they could also be used as a weapon.

  • KateShouldBeWorking

    Maybe she wore that huge-ass ring in case she needs to hurl a heavy object at someone.

    • NC_Meg

       Do you think she has a jewelry box full of big ass rings to hurl at people so that she doesn’t have to go after the ring when she throws it, she just pulls another one from the box when she gets home?

      • They are probably easier than getting a new phone and having to change your number, move your contacts list, delete your porn video, etc, etc, etc.

      • DeborahJozayt

        All of her rings have boomarang capabilities. They always come home to Mama.

        • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

          Cool.  A boomerang ring.

          • StellaZafella


            Except, knowing her contacts, that ain’t no costume jewelery, folks. We could all retire to the Bahamas on that diamond cuff alone… the ring would buy the house.

          • jetpackdino

            She could use it in case she has to post bail.

        • kimmeister

          That sounds like the makings of an awesome Disney villainness!

        • usually in evidence bags, though.

        • NC_Meg

           Duh! Silly me!

  • BP180

    People with questionable ethics regarding blood diamonds have the nicest jewelry.

    • Annabelle Archer

      (that made me snicker)

    • Sobaika

      Well played.

  • It looks like a spaceship landed on her hand.

  • Wendi126

    Wondering if the red string on her left wrist is to remind herself to take off the ring before going potty

  • Isana Leshchinskaya

    it’s like, a totally important designer.

    • Sue_Asponte

       Snaps. Just watched that recently.

    • Sobaika

      “An a-whatta?”

    • MK03

      Count backwards from 100. Thank you!

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      I can hear Cher whimpering “But it’s an Alaia” as she contemplates obeying the mugger….

  • mmc2315

    “Reverse-Morticia shit”  ==snort==

    The diamond choker is DIVINE.

  • insertclevername_ici

    as long as that ring isn’t made from blood diamonds….

  • mjude

    she looks stunning

  • kathryn_dc

    The hair needs brushing, but otherwise, very pretty. I’m still scared of her.

  • butterflysunita

    She looks amazing.  And white is so her color.  That said, that dress is just weird.  And what I can see of the shoes is frightening me.  

    • RebeccaKW

       I believe all colors are her color.  No color would have the balls to make her look bad.

  • PuttyGalore

    Oh wow I hate it. The white platforms make that horrid lampshade/rocket fins bottom even worse than it already is.

  • rubigirl

    Mean never ages….

    • DeborahJozayt

      Ain’t that the truth. To Hell with laugh lines!

  • Squarah

    Ehhhhhh……really? Yeah, she’s iconic and everything, but this look is weak as hell. Out. (I know it’s WERQ post, but I can’t acknowledge this as such.)

  • It looks like Naomi is wearing a Ring Pop!

  • Tatiana Luján

    Hate the shoes and the stringy hair/wig/whathever. I like the lampshase/rocket bottom of the dress.

    • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

      How does she walk in that dress?!

      • H2olovngrl

        She doesn’t. She rides around on a litter carried by her shirtless minions, of course.

    • Squarah

      Yeah, that’s a bargain basement wig. We know she can afford better.

  • Sara Brams-Miller

    Except that her shoes are FUGLY and her dress is about an inch too short, buuuuuut whatevs.

  • Trisha26

    She looks pretty but the shoes are awful and the hem area looks like the tail-end of a rocket/missile. 

  • SewingSiren

    Naomi Campbell + Azzedine Alaïa= 1990’s realness WERQ.

  • Lilithcat

    It probably cost a fortune, but that ring looks like a cheap piece of junk.  

    Shoes are clunky, and that hem is just weird.  

    Also she needs to get her hair out of her eyes.

    Not WERQing for me.

  • I’m the exception this time. I don’t like this dress at all. I HATE the bottom, which is the only part that provides any visual interest. And I think I hate the shoes, too.  Finally, I know this ‘do is her “thing,” but I’m SO freaking tired of it.

    Naomi has never been a favorite of mine, plus I have a raging headache, so I’m extra crank with this one today.

    • H2olovngrl

      You are most assuredly NOT the exception on this one. Looks like there are plenty of us not feeling it.

  • libraangel

    I don’t want to agree, but I have to:fabulous

  • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

    I have never been able to stand her, but damn, that is an incredible look.

  • Rand Ortega

    Ka–BOOM!!!! She’s meaner (& crazier) than a wet cat but she’s beyond!

  • MilaXX

    Luv huh and all her fierce craziness.

  • bayusc

    Alicia Keys wore this (in red) for the Superbowl. Naomi showed her who’s boss!

  • erinbinek

    I don’t care for this.  I really don’t like the shoes, and the bottom of the dress ruins it for me.  This look doesn’t even hold a candle to what she was wearing yesterday.

    • carpediva

      THIS, verbatim.

      • Lilak

        (Piggyback ‘verbatim’, if I may.)

  • Eva_baby

    Ahh, I love her in Azzedine Alaïa.  I think Naomi and Alaïa go together like peas & carrots
    …..or Bert & Ernie
    …. or Sid & Nancy

    • MikeW_Vegas

      or T & Lo?

  • I dislike her so much that I can’t judge her clothes.  I look at the dress, and all I can see is “crazybitch” written all over it.  In neon.

  • Something about her make-up in that last picture….
    seems a little drag-queen-y to me.  But what would I know, in flyover country?

  • schadenfreudelicious

    that is one scraggy looking wig/weave…somewhere a horse wants it’s tail back….

  • The ring seems like it would be excellent for backhanding inept minions.

    • schadenfreudelicious

      whilst holding a phone!

    • OrigamiRose

      For some reason, I feel like a minion is, by definition, inept 🙂

  • Pants_are_a_must

    Oh, I LOVE the Kabbalah bracelet. It’s like spirituality for the rich bitch, as previously demonstrated by Madonna.

  • tereliz

    You had me until the calamari hem. It reminds me of a squid somehow. Everything else is pretty much perfect. LOVE that ring. WANT.

  • amaranth16

    Completely breathtaking.

  • I love the dress – beyond love. It’s high art.  The pantylines and the shoes bring it to a grinding halt.  No way this is a WERQ for me. 

  • E. D.

    Hate the shoes, but she’s one person I don’t mind that hairstyle on.  Still looks great!

  • DTLAFamilies

    She looks kind of like Jessica Biel with that hair, no? Not working for me. 

  • H2olovngrl

    Judging by the comments, methinks maybe this should have been an in or out post…

  • Her hair looks like a horse’s tail.  Goody-another reality show!  We don’t have NEARLY enough of those! 

  • OrigamiRose

    The hair is just such a distraction for me… I want to love it but I can’t stop wanting to pull that mess up so you can see her face and dress.

  • That hemline is CRAY.  (In the best possible way, of course.)

  • snarkykitten

    That weave tho

  • PeaceBang

    I am really not feeling the WERQ here. She’s slumped over, the hair is hideous and the hem and shoes are downright fugly.

  • patticake1601

    Love the dress until you hit the rippled fabric. She looks like a huge calamari…a gorgeous one nonetheless. 

  • Anniebet

    I just…I just…WOW!

  • the dress is striking but the entire package (hair, bling, wrong shoes) feels ostentatious, bordering on the vulgar. and the backdrop does nothing to help.

  • guest2visits

    It all looks good until the bottom – the flippers are kind of startling, and the shoes needed to be as special as the jewelry.

  • Monabel

    LOVE the finned hem!

    • barbarienne

       Yes yes a million times agreed! The whole look is great, but that rocketship base launches it to celestial.

  • aahlife

    Naomi sadly is bald in many places, a result of years of traction alopecia.  She needs to wear hairpieces with bangs.  I prefer her old face before her nose bridge and cheek implants.

    • bd73

      i know weaves ruined her hair, but plastic surgery? i tend to believe the industry destroyed her confidence in her own looks. she seems to idolize patrician looks. just a theory.

  • I hate the lamp-stand bottom of the dress and her ratty wig. But white is the damn thing for her for sure.

  • Ha!  Reverse Morticia was exactly what sprang to my mind too!  her name could be Vitalia.

  • Judy_S

    Just caught this. I LOVE that dress. I love her for looking so gorgeous in it. This is a moment where I am glad supermodels exist.

  • conniemd

    The fit, the fit. Other stylist take notice. It makes all the difference in the success or failure of a look.

  • NYCGlamourpuss

    Absolute perfection and fabulousness!

  • Julaine Morley

    No argument about her continued capacity to serve it. But starting with the last Naomi post and continuing with this one, has anyone noticed that her hands look a tad… manly?

  • Stefanie Mackenzie

    Didn’t Alicia Keys just show up in an almost identical dress?

  • Alyssa

    Killing it!
