Simon Doonan has an interesting take on the Naomi Campbell phone-throwing, toilet-cleaning media extravaganza last week. In The NY Observer, Doonan argues that Cambell is just too darn fabulous for her own good:
<blockquote><div>Vive La Campbell! Being that glamorous is a burdensome and time-consuming job: Thank God there is somebody prepared to do it. She should be applauded and thanked for adding sizzle and style to our humdrum lives.</div></blockquote>
In fact, Doonan, who says heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s known the supermodel since she was a 16-year-old fashion neophyte, says he thinks we should forgive Campbell her occasional hissy fit. Ã¢â‚¬Å“People expect it,Ã¢â‚¬? he says. Ã¢â‚¬Å“People enjoy it.Ã¢â‚¬?
EspeciallyÃ¢â‚¬â€IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d imagineÃ¢â‚¬â€people like, Ana Scolavino, the maid making $14 an hour cleaning La CampbellÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s toilets, who suddenly needed stitches after getting between NaomiÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s glamorous crystal-encrusted cell phone and the humdrum wall.
But, filing a police complaint afterwards? How totally un-fabulous of her!
