Naomi Campbell stars in American Horror Story
Model plays 'sharply-dressed' fashion editor
After her recent success with the hit show Empire, Naomi Campbell is back on our TV screens, this time in American Horror Story. The first model to ever appear on the show, Campbell plays Claudia, a fashion editor that checks into the creepy Cortez Hotel.
Describing her alter ego, Naomi says of Claudia: "She's strong, independent, says what she wants to say. She's honest." Producers clearly knew where to look for character inspiration, here's looking at you Naomi.
Acting aside, fashion is still a priority, given the model's stature in that world coupled with the character that she plays. "When I heard she was going to be on the show I was very excited but also very intimidated," said costume designer, Lou Eyrich. "She's such a style icon — and an icon, period." From Gucci to Derek Lam and Zac Posen to Dolce & Gabbana, she's dressed to kill — or be killed — in this show.
Lady Gaga's couture-loving character, The Countess, may have finally met her match.
