Naomi Campbell is 53!
The fashion icon has been an omnipresent force in the industry since beginning her modeling career at 15. Since then, the superstar has walked countless catwalks for fashion houses like Versace, Prada, Marc Jacobs, Dior and more; has covered numerous Vogue publications from France to America and England; and became a trailblazer for Black models in the industry, helping pave the way for the representation in fashion shows and magazines that is the standard today.
Along the way, Campbell has formed numerous close relationships with some of the biggest names in the history of fashion, being hailed as one of the original supermodels alongside close friends like Linda Evangelista, Cindy Crawford and Christy Turlington. Plus, she's formed deep ties with iconic designers like Marc Jacobs, Jeremy Scott and Ricardo Tisci.

Cindy Crawford posted the most daring flashback for Campbell's birthday, sharing a behind-the-scenes pic of them at a Mugler fashion show in matching ensembles, both in nearly-naked all-black looks with tassel pasties and latex detailing. Campbell sports bright orange hair, while Crawford is in her natural brown.
Jeremy Scott, most known for his tenure as creative director at Moschino, posted a video of them on set at a photo shoot where Campbell is in a blinged-out silver ensemble, thigh-high black boots, and layers of necklaces. Scott is next to her in a Moschino T-shirt and overalls as they pose together and share a kiss.
