ASAP Rocky Gets Close With Supermodel Naomi Campbell in Sexy ‘Pop Magazine’ Shoot
A$AP Rocky’s establishment as a new age fashion icon continues in 2016 when the rapper will release his debut collection with Guess Originals. Adding to his style-making history, Rocky is featured in a new spread in Pop Magazine, wearing pieces from the line and posing in a rather intimate manner with supermodel and former Guess girl Naomi Campbell.
According to The Daily Mail, Rocky was starstruck by his cover star, and reportedly told Pop fashion Director Stevie Dance that he was “in love with Naomi’s soft skin and pretty eyes.” Speaking with The Mail, editor Ashley Heath said the chemistry between the two was immediate.
“I knew Naomi would take this cover story to another level but she never ceases to surprise,” Heath said of the model. “She’s number one, actually underrated in many ways.”
Rocky’s Guess collection will be available in stores and online on Feb. 16, and a behind-the-scenes video from the Pop shoot is available at the magazine’s website. Speaking to The Cut, Rocky said of the collection, “I actually went into their archive and picked those pieces. I went in,” which lends the shoot an old school, minimalist look.
The Harlem rapper was previously photographed in Vogue with model and then-girlfriend Chanel Iman. The two reportedly ended their relationship shortly after in October of 2014.
