Naomi Campbell in Atelier Versace at the 2013 Novak Djokovic Gala Dinner

Posted on September 16, 2013

We wanted to do neck rolls and finger snaps at the sight of this, but despite our undying love, we can’t bring ourselves to do it. Yes, she’s Goddess Naomi and she was born to wear Atelier Versace (among many, many other things), and the whole bondage/scary thing actually works great for her because “soft” and “pretty” just aren’t her best looks…

Naomi Campbell attends the 2013 Novak Djokovic Foundation Fundraising Gala Dinner in New York City in Atelier Versace.

But that wig is just way too janky, you guys.

    • lexilexi

      Dislike the dress. Hate the hair.

      • Louise Bryan

        I with you on both counts.

      • lilazander

        Totally agree with the hair, and the top half of the dress is vulgar.

    • Miranda

      “janky”____________*tears*_______but yeah, that wig just not hitting it.

    • princessricky

      you do realize she first wore this dress in 1992?

      • Lauren Lynch Fox

        I thought it looked like that. I actually thought 80s.

      • snevhead

        Yeah, amazing. She’s serving up a whole lot of smug for still being able to rock the dress over 20 years later. Unfortunately, it’s Smug Topped with Janky Wig.

        • Rand Ortega

          Smug Topped with Janky Wig is the newest pancake creation at IHop.

        Thank you! I knew I had seen it on her before, including the short hair. I wonder if it’s the same wig she wore 21 years ago? If so, get that poor thing a drink, since it’s old enough now.

        • snevhead

          I think the first time she wore it, she had long hair all piled up on top.

      • oyeyemi808

        Thank you nuff said!!!!

    • marlie

      This mess is borderline NSFW. I *hate* the dress, and the wig isn’t doing her any favors.

    • Sobaika

      Janky wig, and the shoes/hem length are not right.

    • Anne

      I was going to ask when she had joined the cast of Chicago…

    • Kiltdntiltd

      Nope, not a bit of it. The top of that looks like some sort of pain inducing medical device. And yeah, we sell better wigs at my place of business.

      • StellaZafella

        I get “Diana Ross’s secret underwear, circa 1965″…yeeesh!

    • KateShouldBeWorking

      Thems some desperate titties.

    • rosie5215

      The most impressive thing about this outfit is that she first wore it over twenty years ago. Homegirl may be crazy as a shot rabbit, but she is FIERCE AS FUCK. If she is still not giving killer stink eye and flashing those amazing legs twenty years from now, I will be highly disappointed.

      • demidaemon

        Agreed. Although every time I see her, I get a little scared for my well-being.

    • lauralu

      I love the word janky. And that wig is just that.

    • mjude

      must use word janky in my next sentence.

    • tereliz


      Uh, yeah, the wig is the real problem here, isn’t it?

    • bellafigura1

      I love the dress but her head is off. She’s filler-ed and botoxed and bewigged beyond recognition. Weird.

      • Gayer Than Thou

        Right? Miss Campbell looks … “refreshed,” and not in a good way.

    • largishbearishAtlish

      The top looks like (yet another) make an outfit with pleather tape/black ace bandages for Project Runway….and todays new ‘must use’ word is janky. Thank you T’lo for pointing out the first thing I noticed… from the ages 6-12 Chicago childrens costume collection.

    • Lori

      The straps on the top are mashing her girls in a rather sadistic (and unattractive) way, but they still look like they came off a law chair. Naomi should throw something at whoever talked her into wearing this, and whoever sold her that wing.

    • annabelle archer

      WREQ. Bad wig, aggressive, poorly fitting dress, too shiny and clunky shoes. (Ducks head to avoid flying objects.)

      • ShaoLinKitten

        WREQ should totally be a thing.

        • StellaZafella


      • Malve Lyborg

        I’ll adapt “WREQ” into my vocabulary as of now.

    • GorgeousThings

      My problem with this look is that it is a virtual retread of a look she wore in the 90s, also Versace, and also a short wig. Yep, the girl is fierce as they come, but this is a rerun, and it feels like a letdown from Ms. Naomi.

      • MilaXX

        It is a retread.

    • kimmeister

      The dress reminds me of Cher in the “If I could turn back time” video. Also, Leeloo from “The Fifth Element.”

    • Clueless_Jock

      Straps need to be realigned.

    • MilaXX

      Agreed, bad wig throwing the whole thing off balance.

    • kirkyo

      Best post ever.

    • elemspbee

      and the excessive oil, or similar effect thereof, of the lights.

    • Nora Charles

      Strangé is rolling her eyes and talking about her behind her back.

    • Janet B

      She doesn’t look happy.

    • e jerry powell

      My vote is to put this dress on Grace Jones. (If she hasn’t worn something like it from Gaultier already.)

    • Jacquelyn

      I think she could use some lipstick as well as a new wig.

    • ashtangajunkie

      She – and few others – have the bod for that dress, but this look just didn’t come together the way that it should have. Bad wig, and “janky” is my new favourite word.

    • formerlyAnon

      I say props to her for how she can wear that dress. And I don’t mind the dress at all, it’s down right tasteful compared to all those frocks cut down to the navel and displaying swaying side boob.

      Wig, yeah. Not quite right. I also think her makeup is fine but not as awesome as it ought to be.

    • Miss WKS

      That wig is channeling Whitney….

    • Trickytrisha

      A side by side pic of her wearing this same dress 20 years ago makes this one, neck down, even more impressive. The head, just not so much.

    • Alexandra Pimenta

      Wow! That guy got some talent! Best Naomi Campbell impersonator I have ever seen! :D

    • Rand Ortega


    • Laurie Landry

      Sorry, I don’t want to see them, Naomi.

    •!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

      *whispers quietly*

      A different head of hair and some room in those straps would not go amiss. But she doesn’t look as much a damn fool as any mere mortal would, so…

    • schadenfreudelicious

      Perfect example of “just because you can doesn’t mean you should”

    • macwell

      I think she looks great – minis the wiggy wig. Bow down before her! LOL!! ;)

    • greyhoundgirl

      My breasts are cringing, if such a thing is possible. Sympathy pains–this dress looks like it hurts, and not in a good way.

    • Sadie-Ann

      I feel like this dress would give you weird boob imprints.

    • bertkeeter

      She just oozes… ? Uh…. Nothing!

    • marshmallowjane

      Ugly dress, and it doesn’t fit right. The wig is butt-ugly.

      For Naomi not to be able to rock this look says an awful lot about it.

    • Alloy Jane

      Good lord, you could do a better job making this kinda dress with duct tape. Is that a fly? Or a bunny? I don’t know what her boobs are supposed to look like. Agree re: THAT HIDEOUS WIG.

    • champagne socialist

      Love the dress, but don’t like the shoes. A bit too clunky for the dress.

    • GreenTurtle

      Oh, is this Versace?mmhuh, who knew? :)

    • A Shiny O’Connor

      Versace don’t make em like they used to, ahem, Nutella.

    • PaulRin

      The wig is ugly beyond galaxy. Naomi, NO

    • ewes_urn_aim

      Screw all of you*- I like her hair!

      *I mean that with love.

    • kingderella

      i love this – wig and all – as actual BDSM gear. not sure it belongs on the red carpet.

    • shelbywoo

      I like the wig. It looks like the wind knocked it out of place, but had it been fixed right before the red carpet, I’d have no complaints.

      Honestly, thought I wish she’d just go bald. We all know she has no edged anyway. Give alien dominatrix realness.

      • EdithP

        I think she is pretty much bald. Plus, I think she needs this wig to cover the elaborate system of elastic bands and pulleys that are keeping her face rather too taught.

    • Anplica Fiore

      I find her eye shadow the scariest part of this look. Eeek!

    • Lilak

      I ain’t no priss, but is this the sort of thing a guest wears to a fundraising gala? Even if you’re known for fabulousness, and the room is packed with celebs and other moneyed folk?
      (I could maaaybe see some Cannes or Elton event, but not so much otherwise.)

    • Deborah Lipp

      Hate the dress. Bondage breast cups are not to be worn in public.

    • Anne Meek White

      Thank God they were able to find some duct tape to finish the top of the dress.

    • nancymae

      But isn’t this the same bondage dress she wore on the runway over 20 years ago?? If so, janky (to be sure) wig notwithstanding, she needs to at least get an attagirl. TWENTY YEARS

    • kathrineb

      I like short bob haircuts. I think I will quit commenting on this website. I obviously know nothing.

      • bringbackbeatles

        It’s just their opinion. That’s the point of the whole site. If you have a different opinion, that’s why there’s a comment section. It’s a place for people to discuss different opinions, not a personal attack.

        • kathrineb

          True. I’m not upset, just expressing the confusion I felt.

          • bringbackbeatles

            Ok. Cool. For the record, looks like a lot of people agree with you. I like a bob haircut as well. I just don’t think this particular style of bob is right on Naomi, but it could look great on someone else.

    • livesarah

      I think the only person I would enjoy this dress on is Grace Jones.

    • oyeyemi808

      Dont think the wig is Janky or however you say it.I,m sure it lays correctly , probably got just needs a lil brushing .
