It was my brother [fashion photographer Miles'] wedding and I was one of the flower girls. Naomi and my sister Saffron [not pictured] were two of the bridesmaids. My little sister Ruby is on the far left and the other little girl is Lily McMenamy who is a big model now. But Naomi is iconic and I always looked up to her, she’s amazing. You can’t be around Naomi Campbell and not feel her incredible presence. I mean, she’s a supermodel.
