While most of us were going through the awkward phase as teenagers, Naomi Campbell’s recent Instagram post proves she grew into her supermodel looks at a young age.

Celebrating her 50th birthday, Campbell shared four posts from her younger days with the caption “where it all began”.

Feeling nostalgic, the model also posted a cute throwback snap of herself at three, wearing a matching yellow check hat and dress combo.

The final trip down memory lane saw Campbell post a baby photo, in which she thanked her Mum for “giving her life”.

Proving that she has been every inch the supermodel for many decades, her four photos all show a slightly different side to her modelling portfolio.

The first two, which show hear wearing fitted black dresses, have an elegant touch to them, with the first showcasing the long, sleek hair Campbell became famous for.

The third showed a slightly more provocative side to her personality, with the supermodel wearing a sheer black dress with cutout waist.

The final look made her look mature beyond her teenage years as she posed wearing a fitted silk jacket and trousers.

The founder of Fashion 4 Relief was clearly looking through old photos, because these weren’t the only snaps she decided to share with her fans.

Fans were given a cuteness overload after Campbell shared a photo of herself in a matching bonnet and dress, holding what looks to be a basket of flowers almost as big as the three-year-old herself.

The cute snap proved nostalgic for quite a few people, who remember the types of matching outfits their parents used to dress them in growing up.

The final photo shows a wide-eyed baby version of the now 50-year-old looking very cute in a ruffled pink dress; a dress which wasn’t a million miles away from her 2019 Met Gala look.

It’s safe to say that Campbell wasn’t somebody who had to grow into her looks, and with 50 years under her belt, her signature strong cheekbones and waist-long black hair is still going strong - as is her decade spanning career, might we add.
