Naomi Campbell has never shied away from owning her diva status. So, it's no surprise that the globetrotter would have a pretty extensive pre- and in-flight routine. But fans were still a bit shocked when the supermodel shared a new video on her YouTube channel of exactly what goes into the ritual.
The 49-year-old documented a recent flight to Doha, Qatar revealing she is just like the average traveler in some regards while not in others. In the five-minute video, she takes viewers with her through the security (placing a designer handbag on the belt, of course) before hitting up the convenience store for snacks. "I mean I really should not," Campbell said while picking up a bag of miniature Twix. "You know what? I'm getting it! I'm getting this, and I don't care."
After that, things get a whole lot more glamorous. Once settled in her first-class seat, the star pulls out her go-to beauty products, which she refers to as her "hydration pack." It includes several different types of face masks. "Everything's for hydration when I get on a plane," she says.
But, before she can engage in her beauty routine, she has a cleaning ritual. Campbell carries plastic gloves and sanitizing wipes to scrub down everything from the television and tray table to the armrests and seatbelt. "Clean anything you touch. Anything you could possibly touch," said Campbell. "This is what I do on every plane I get on. I do not care what people think of me. It's my health, and it makes me feel better."
Lastly, before indulging in her series of masks, the modeling legend lays down her own personal hot pink seat cover on the chair. "They're hand washed at every hotel I go to," she revealed. And to avoid getting sick, she said she places a mask over her mouth once her hydration session is complete and keeps it on for the duration of the flight. "This is my protection from people's coughing and sneezing," she added. "I really think this helps me, my little routine."
"I will eventually end up sitting like this the whole entire flight," she said. "As the plane descends, people start coughing and sneezing, and the coughing and sneezing makes me…I just can't.”
Perhaps Campbell is on to something considering she looks runway ready when stepping off a plane.
