Naomi Campbell Plans To Celebrate Her 40th Birthday In Style

Naomi Campbell is having a good year so far..and yes that includes charges of assault that were brought up and soon after dropped against her. She's featured in Vogue Russia's model only issue but more importantly she turns 40 this year! Naomi never thought she would reach the very young age of 40 saying, "I thought I'd never actually make this birthday. I've had times when it was hard for me to look at myself in the mirror, because I didn't really like who I was . . . Anger wasn't the only one of my issues -- I have lots of them. I had to get clean and stay in the AA program. I understand what keeps me on the right path."

Well lucky for Naomi she made it this far because her Russian boyfriend Vladimir Doronin plans on hosting a bash to remember on her birthday May 22 on the French Riviera. Many stars will be in town for the Cannes Film Festival but Na-Na's party may be the talk of the town with it's own high caliber list of celebrities!

Take a look at more of Naomi's shoot from Vogue Russia's April 2010 issue (nudity)

Liya Kebede is absolutely GORGEOUS -just gorgeous in this April 2010 Vogue spread called "Float On". Stylist Edward Enniful did a beautiful job styling this shoot. If this is any indication, Spring is looking very feminine and pretty!

Chanel Iman hops into spring with the help of famed photographer Patrick Demarchelier. The "Short Story" spread for Allure's April 2010 issue promises to give you the perfect black night look, prints for the day and your anytime looks.

The black options falls a little short but that Silk Georgette dress by Thakoon makes up for that!!

And Chanel Iman works it in these prints - this is a gorgeous spread for her! And don't forget about the heels - I thought I heard a trendy little birdie say flats were back in for Spring..oh well...I am officially in love!
