Talk to me, Harry Winston! Naomi Campbell chills out poolside in a cool collection of high jewelry from the King of Diamonds.
What is it with magazines, swimsuits, and diamonds? We did it with model Fred Juneau in our current issue (with a 275 ct. diamond scarf!), and photographer Julio Donoso did it in 1991 with Naomi Campbell. In 2020, Donoso—now a winemaker in Chile—posted this pic on Instagram in honor of Campbell’s 50th birthday, recalling the shoot on the roof of the Peninsula hotel on Fifth Avenue in New York City. “It was snowing outside and you in the pool with jewelry by Harry Winston and wigs by Mugler,” he wrote. “What a fun day with the most cheerful and talented of the divas.” It’s a completely unrealistic concept—when was the last time you saw someone at the local pool wearing fringe earrings, three cluster bracelets, a giant emerald and diamond statement necklace, and sapphire and diamond cocktail rings? But with these kinds of rocks, looks always beat practicality.
