Naomi Campbell made international headlines yesterday, but not for her stunning looks. Campbell received intense media attention for sporting inches of hairless hairline when emerging from the water during a yachting jaunt. Pictures snapped of the 42-year-old supermodel vacationing in Ibiza earlier this week shocked many as patches of bare scalp were revealed by the lack of coverage created by a wet weave.
“With her hair pulled back in a ponytail, Naomi revealed her incredibly receding hairline, the result of her over-reliance on hair extensions and weaves for most of her modelling career,” Great Britain’s Daily Mail wrote of her bad hair day.
Embarressment over the unflattering photos did not deter the beauty from stepping out last night to mix and mingle with athletes and celebrities at an Olympic charity event held in London. Wearing a hair piece that covered much of her baldness, Campbell hosted “an Olympic Celebration Dinner in partnership with Fashion For Relief and Interview Magazine,” the Mail also reported.
“The 2012 Olympics have been remarkable – I am elated for Team GB and the extraordinary success they have had so far. It is a very special and proud time to be in London and to celebrate the outstanding talent, which has been showcased during the games,” the stunner told the press.
Campbell mixed and mingled while flashing her megawatt smile with medalists such as cyclist Danielle King. She also partied with one of her closest gal pals, fellow model Kate Moss.
Naomi did not let flack over her hair prevent her from excelling in her professional capacities as host. “I wish everyone taking part in London 2012 continued strength, determination and perseverance for the remainder of the games,” she said.
