Naomi Campbell’s Drudge Chic

At least this is what the Sun’s front page notes. There’s Naomi, the supermodel, doing her bit for drudge chic as she starts a week’s community service as a cleaner in New York.

Life is hard for a Britisher looking to carve out a career and a new life in the Land of Opportunity. And, as we’ve said, you have to start somewhere over there. And there, following in Boy George’s brush strokes, is our latest export.

Naomi is cleaning a garage at New York’s Sanitation Department. She’s wearing a Chanel cap (£250), Chanel watch (£2,000) and Christian Louboutin stiletto boots (£600).

British cleaners will surely look on with no little envy. While they toil in supermarket own brand Comfi-slax and clothing that no designer deems fit to lend their name to, America’s most lowly workers keep abreast of the latest trends.

Of course, you can always accessorise and the Express sees Campbell pull on an orange safety vest (vintage) and work gloves. The look is set off with a mop, broom, shovel and bin.

In this garb, Campbell will work from 8am to 4pm. She will enjoy a 15-minute break in the morning, an hour for lunch and a further 10 minutes leisure time in the afternoon.

A co-worker tells the Sun: “She worked really hard and asked the supervisor, ‘How am I doing?’ He told her she was working harder than some of the regular staff.”

It was ever the way of the immigrant. And we wish Campbell well…
