Gabrielle/Naomi Campbell
Gabrielle
Successful pop vocalist

Born in Hackney, London, Gabrielle was discovered when a demo she made found its way into the hands of the A&R man at Go! Beat Records. The demo featured her singing a song called Dreams, set to the tune of Tracy Chapman's song Fast Car. The song launched her career and produced her first No. 1.

Gabrielle has won two Brit Awards, a MOBO Award and an American Music Award, as well as being voted Hottest Female Artist by Billboard Magazine. Her 2000 Album Rise cemented her position as Britain's most successful female artist with the No.1 success of the title track and Sunshine, When A Woman and Should I Stay becoming Top 15 hits.

Naomi Campbell
Professor Stuart Hall
Supermodel who is frequently hailed among the world's most beautiful woman

She was born in May 1970, in Streatham to Valerie Campbell, a fashion designer and model. Naomi began her career at 15, when Beth Boldt, an agent at Elite, spotted her walking down a London Street near Covent Garden (and near her school) and offered to have her pictures taken. She spent two years on the Paris runway; hit the cover of French Vogue and a year later made history again, when her face--and legs--appeared on the cover of American Vogue, making her the first black woman to appear on the number one fashion magazine in the States. She quickly became the darling of top international designers, forging an especially close relationship with Versace, for whom she modelled for 12 years before an acrimonious parting of the ways in 1999.

The following year Naomi launched a fragrance - named after herself of course - backed by a worldwide marketing push and promotional tour. She has also dabbled in films, appearing alongside Antonio Banderas in Miami Rhapsody and with Sophia Loren and Kim Basinger in Prêt-à-Porter.

Campbell has been romantically linked with Robert De Niro, Sylvester Stallone and Mike Tyson.
