With a successful career spanning several decades, there is no doubt that Naomi Campbell has established herself as one of the most fashionable women in the world. In honor of the legendary supermodel's 50th birthday, from iconic red carpet moments to style statements on the catwalk, we've pulled together a collection of Naomi Campbell's greatest fashion looks.

Naomi Campbell has worked with some of the greatest designers of our time, and is often recognized for her close friendships with these world-class designers, including the late Azzedine Alaia. Only 16 when she met the designer, Campbell and Alaia struck up a working relationship and friendship that lasted until his unfortunate passing in 2017. This striking runway look finds the supermodel strutting in his 1991 show.

Just a couple of years before Naomi Campbell's unforgettable fall in nine-inch heels while walking for Vivienne Westwood, she was strutting in Westwood off the runway, alongside supermodel BFF Kate Moss to the Designer of the Year Awards in London.

The only thing better than vintage Chanel is Naomi Campbell rocking vintage Chanel, pictured above in Karl Lagerfeld's modernization of the classic Chanel tweed suit. With her pink streaks and mini skirt to match, Campbell was quickly establishing herself as fashion's "It Girl" of the 90s.

Naomi sparkled at the 1995 Met Gala, alongside another good friend and iconic designer, Gianni Versace. Her appearances at major events like this brought upon the new role of supermodels as celebrities, a concept that surrounds us in fashion and pop culture today.

Is there anything more iconic than wearing Alaia and sporting a beehive to testify in court? We didn't think so either. The supermodel was there to testify in a war crimes trial against former President of Liberia Charles Taylor, who reportedly gave Campbell blood diamonds.

After nearly 15 years away from the Valentino runway, Naomi's showstopping debut for the brand's Spring/Summer 2019 collection sent a clear message that the supermodel had never really left.

Stunning in Valentino once again, Campbell brought the "Camp" at last year's Met Gala. Personifying this quote from Susan Sontag, "Camp is a woman walking around in a dress made of three million feathers," Naomi Campbell once again made everyone's best dressed list.
