Today, May 22, iconic supermodel and pop-culture legend Naomi Campbell was born. Scouted at the age of 15, Campbell has grown to become one of the industry’s biggest names, and was originally a part of “The Big Five” which also included Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista, Tatjana Patitz and Christy Turlington.

Since her start, she’s graced the cover of more than 500 magazines. She made history becoming the first black model to appear on the cover of TIME magazine, as well as Vogue and Russian Vogue. She was also the first British black model to appear on the cover of British Vogue and has been vocal about the lack of diversity within the fashion community and has fought to make a change.

Throughout the years, she’s also become known for her shady diva moments, her iconic appearances and so much more. For her birthday, we’ve put together a list of some of our favorite Naomi Campbell moments. Take a look at our list below, and don’t forget to wish the icon a happy birthday in the comments below.
