What Did We Learn This Month?
Shape Cover Star for April 2014:
Ultimate model diva Naomi Campbell is on the cover and looking very sexy (43 years old, people!) Naomi is the Executive Producer and cohost of the show The Face which sounds similar to America’s Top Model but I would never say that directly to Ms. Campbell as she is famous for a short temper. (I used to work for Conde Nast and let me tell ya—I have some gooood Naomi Campbell stories!)
Anyhoo, after 28 years in the business Naomi is now doling out her best advice for staying happy & healthy plus she shows us a few of her favorite yoga poses. Check them out here!
