As if American Horror Story: Hotel didn’t already fulfill our casting dreams with Chloe Sevigny, Cheyenne Jackson and Matt Bomer, they’ve added Naomi Campbell to the roster of guests this season. Going stiletto-to-stilleto with Lady Gaga and Angela Bassett, Campbell is set to play a fashion editor who pays the price for her savage critiques (we guess this means she’ll get murdered, but let’s hope she lasts a few episodes).

Is Campbell up to the task? She’s never exactly had the breakout roles of other supermodels, but she’s recently reentered acting with full-force on Fox’s Empire. This is after trying (unsuccessfully) to be a cross between Heidi Klum and Tyra Banks as host of The Face. In anticipation of what’s to come, take a look back at Naomi Campbell’s best roles.

Fresh Prince of Bel-Air 

We can’t get over how young she looks guest starring as posh girl Helen, nor can we get over her dancing with Will Smith.

Ugly Betty

Naomi joined then Elle creative Director Joe Zee in a cameo on Ugly Betty, playing a very fashionable softball game against Vanessa Williams. She struts out in wedge sneakers (because how else would a supermodel play sports?), but the highlight of the scene is when everyone ducked the second she whipped out her cell phone. She proved she does indeed have a sense of humor about herself.

Absolutely Fabulous

Naomi played herself in the cult British comedy, acting bored and over the gala she’s attending. At least we think this counts as acting…


Naomi returned to the small screen as sultry siren Camilla Marks on ‘Empire’. Let’s hope this gives us a taste of what she’ll be like on American Horror Story: Hotel.
