Naomi Campbell 'Shocked' By Being Made Brazil Ambassador

Naomi Campbell photo Naomi Campbell says she was stunned to be appointed an ambassador for the city of Rio de Janeiro.

The supermodel was given the honour during a recent trip to Brazil. She was in the country to help plan the Fashion Rocks event which will be held in Rio later this year.

“I didn’t know I was going to be made an ambassador for Rio at all. I was totally shocked when the mayor did offer that,” Naomi told the New York Daily News.

“I do have a charity there, ‘We Love Brazil’. It’s to help people in the favelas [ghettos]. The women make crocheted fabrics, and designers from Brazil use them.

“It’s been raining in Brazil for 26 days and hundreds of people have lost their houses. The charity gives to people who don’t have anything.”

Cesar Maia, the city’s mayor, says Naomi was chosen because: “She has an image that is the face of Rio de Janeiro, she could represent it abroad like nobody else.”

Campbell recently bagged in part in hit U.S. comedy ‘Ugly Betty’.
