There comes a time in every supermodel's career when she makes a play for the most intimate of apparel categories (pun intended), and designs a lingerie line. Considering how long she's been at the top of the industry, Naomi Campbell's entry into underwear this week seems almost overdue; other supers like Helena Christensen, Gisele Bündchen, Heidi Klum, Bar Rafaeli and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley already have their own lines or have collaborated with established brands.

Campbell's new line is called "I Am Naomi Campbell" — though "You Are Not Naomi Campbell" could have also worked. It's is a limited-edition collaboration with Italian brand Yamamay that features lingerie sets with such fierce names as "Supervillain" and "Magnificent." And, of course, Campbell enlisted photographer Mario Testino to shoot the collection images, in which the model shows off the bras, underwear, robes and bodysuits on the best canvas possible — her flawless form. It's no wonder top tier lingerie brands like Agent-Provocateur and La Perla have hired her for campaigns.

The collection is priced between €10.99 to €59.99  and is available on Yamamay's website, which does not ship to the U.S. We've reached out to ask where it will be available stateside and will update once we know more.
