Naomi's five day style show at Big Apple rubbish depot

26 MARCH 2007

For most people community service would mean an unpleasant task to be got through as discreetly as possible. But Naomi Campbell turned her week-long sentence into one long fashion parade, culminating with a head-turning appearance on the final day in a £50,000 silver Dolce & Gabbana gown, set off with diamond earrings and necklace.

Head held high with the kind of attitude that earns her up to £30,000 a time on the catwalk, the supermodel arrived in a series of striking outfits to fulfil the penalty. Cashmere knits, stretch trousers and patent leather boots have all been pressed into duty for the trip to her clean-up job. Each new ensemble has been accessorised with designer sunnies and the season's key look - an oversize bag.

On her penultimate day the 36-year-old fashionista modelled a purple ruched blouse under a luxurious £50,000 Zandra Rhodes jacket. Meanwhile other labels to see the inside of the Sanitation Department's District 3 garage at Pier 36 have included Ralph Lauren, exclusive Italian designer line Bottega Veneta and Burberry.

Images of the fashion icon's daily ensembles, snapped by a photographer for US style bible W, will appear in the magazine in July. Mindful that she is paying off a debt to society, however, Naomi also plans to auction off her cleaning gear for Nelson Mandela's foundation for children.
