Naomi's 10-day fast before catwalk return

BACK in their heyday, the supermodels wouldn't get out of bed for less than $10,000 a day (as Linda Evangelista said), but now Naomi Campbell won't get on to a catwalk for less than 10 days of juicing.

In an interview with 'Net-A-Porter', the 48-year-old (above) admitted to juice fasting for 10 days before her appearance in the Versace Atelier show last July.

With a 14-year gap since her last stint on the runway for the Italian fashion house, Campbell admitted her return needed a little more willpower.

"For 10 days prior to the Versace show, I just drank juice – carrot, ginger, pineapple," she said.

It was worth it, though, "for the way the clothes felt afterwards".

"When I did my fitting in those amazing clothes, it was just overwhelming," she said.

When she can find the strength, her exercise regime is just as pivotal to her super body.

"Since I had my knee operation (in 2012, after being reportedly mugged), Pilates has become important," said Campbell. "I don't want to build muscle, just to tone."

The rest of the time, she puts on a more solid performance and lets "the chocolate and crisps come in at times. You have to allow the little things that make you happy".
