Naomi rejects 'supermodel' tag

NORMAL: Naomi Campbell has rejected the term 'supermodel'

NAOMI CAMPBELL has slammed the use of the term 'supermodel,' saying she does not need to use such labels to define herself.

The model, who reached the height of her modelling career in the 90s, told fashion magazine, Harper's Bazaar, that she believed the term was redundant.

"I would never call myself that. I don’t have any superhuman powers. I still love what I do," she said.

She added: "It’s a new challenge to see how people can change your look. I like words like 'transformation,' 'reinvention,' and 'chameleon' because one word I don't like is 'predictable.'"

The 41-year-old, who was discovered at 15, is one of the most recognised black models in the world. She's graced the covers of big fashion publications and in 1988 she became the first black model to be featured on the French Vogue's cover.
