"Never let anyone change the way you feel, change the course of what you and your vision and what you want for yourself," Naomi told the other graduates. "Never quit."

The model's schedule has been jam-packed this week – only the day before, Naomi was in Paris, walking for Demna Gvasalia's Balenciaga haute couture show.

She took to the catwalk alongside the likes of Bella Hadid, Kim Kardashian, Nicole Kidman and Dua Lipa, wearing a black pleated gown with a dramatic structured collar and Cinderella-style skirt.
