Well, I’m glad that Diane Von Furstenberg convinced Naomi Campbell to appear on Empire, because she slays effortlessly, but Naomi had her reservations when she was offered the role on Fox’s hit T.V. show..
According to NYMag.com She says:
“I’ve known [creator] Lee [Daniels] for a long time but when he asked me to play the role, I wasn’t sure,” the supermodel told Vogue. “I’d kind of given up on acting.” She consulted her longtime pal Diane von Furstenberg, who told her to, as Campbell paraphrases, “Give it one more try, go out there and own it!” DVF: always empowering women, even ultraconfident supermodels.
