The global fashionista press were mightily impressed by Naomi Campbell's appearance at the war crimes trial of Liberian trouble maker Charles Taylor.
Fending off allegations that she had received 'blood diamonds' as a personal gift from the man responsible for a bloody civil war which left a quarter of a million people dead, Ms Campbell stated that she didn't know the gifts were diamonds.
Fashion reporter, Oleg Skrumski, writing for Ukrainean fashion magazine Oopskertzi Peepo commented:
"The supermodel obviously thought that the blood diamonds were gravel chips for her Hertfordshire mansion driveway. But having said that - wow! Doesn't she look good? She must be forty years old by now and there's no sign of saggage. She's got great skin, and you could still stand half a litre of Pilsner on the lady's butt. Wow! She's some woman."
Ms Campbell described the court appearance as "a terrible inconvenience" intimating that she had far more important matters to deal with than war crime allegations - like tottering about on ridiculously high heels at Milan fashion shows before falling rather awkwardly on her ample arse.
Or hurling cell phones at lackeys' heads.
Good old Naomi - for once a positive female role model hogs the headlines.
More as we get it. (Unless it's a bag of blood diamonds - in which case it's St Tropez here we come!)
