Naomi cleans up nicely in six-inch heels and Chanel

20 MARCH 2007

Dropped off by her chauffeur in a tinted window SUV, wearing six-inch Christian Louboutin heels, Chanel cap, £250 sunglasses and a designer coat, it looked like just another day in the glamorous life of supermodel Naomi Campbell. The only indication that it wasn't, were the work boots slung casually over her shoulder - and the policeman by her side.

On Monday, the South London-born fashion icon could have been heading for a magazine shoot or the catwalk, but instead she was keeping a date at New York's Sanitation Department in downtown Manhattan. She is completing five days of community service - working as a cleaner at the warehouse from 8am to 4pm - ordered by the courts as punishment for injuring her housemaid by throwing a mobile phone at her. "I want to keep my head down and do this as well as I can," says Naomi.

Inside the huge building, the 36-year-old stunner added a dayglo jacket to her ensemble and donned latex gloves ready to sweep and mop floors. "I'm happy to do it," she said earlier this month when the nature of her sentence was revealed. "I never spoke about what I wouldn't do and what I would do – I'm just doing what I'm told to do and that's it."

The depot is the same place Boy George carried out his community service last August, but while he swept the streets, Naomi has been allowed to carry out her cleaning duties indoors, away from the public eye.
