Christy Turlington has kicked off Naomi Campbell’s 50th birthday celebrations by sending her a sweet message on social media.
The British supermodel reaches the milestone age on Friday, and to mark the occasion, her longtime friend and fellow ’90s star Turlington has uploaded a vintage video of Campbell to her Instagram page.
“Happy 50th Birthday to my sister from another mister @naomi. I am so sad not to be with you today to celebrate with you. This clip is one of my favourites because it was from an Azzedine show and we loved him so much,” she wrote alongside an undated black-and-white video of Campbell backstage at an Azzedine Alaia presentation. “I also know you love your birthday and appreciate a party. You are a true Gemini and a force for truth and good in the world. I love you and every memory we share.”
In addition, Dior menswear designer Kim Jones posted a picture of himself with Naomi and Kate Moss at his final Louis Vuitton show in January 2018 along with a birthday greeting, while Claudia Schiffer uploaded a montage with the caption: “Happy Birthday to my wonderful, lifetime friend.”
Elsewhere, Adut Akech shared a long message on her Instagram page in which she thanked the brunette beauty for serving as a “role model and mentor” to her.
“Thank you for all that you are and as well all that you do. Thank you for being daily source of inspiration and motivation to me. Thank you for your continuous love and support you show me daily since the first time we met. My chosen family, my mama you are such a light and joy in my life. There is never a dull moment with you and I’m so grateful to have you in my life and by my side on this journey. Such a true beauty inside out,” the 20-year-old gushed. “I pray that your special day is filled with nothing but love, pure joy, laughter and positive energy.”
