Supermodel Naomi Campbell is an iconic model, but when a fellow model tried to cross her, she quickly put her in her place. Naomi knows modeling and has it down to a science, and model Nicole Trunfio has had to learn this lesson the hard way.

Campbell and Trunfio are fellow modeling mentors on The Face Australia, and the tension between them is getting more heated and escalated as time goes by. Call Naomi difficult, bad-tempered, and mean if you want, but do not call her outdated---an unfortunate mistake on Trunfio’s part.

In a heated disagreement on the show, Trunfio stated that Campbell “wasn't a model of now.” This comment simply stunned Campbell, because at the time the comment was made Campbell was on four magazine covers around the world, two of them being Vogue.

In another recent episode, Campbell explodes again when Trunfio compares herself to Campbell during an argument about contestants touching their dresses. Campbell bluntly tells Trunfio, 'You are not on my level. You will never be on my level.'

Campbell, 43, is not one to shy away from controversy or the spotlight. The British supermodel is currently dating Michael Fassbender, 37, and the pair has been causing quite a stir with their public displays of affection. Friends of the supermodel state that Campbell is “quite smitten” with the “12 Years a Slave” star, and the pair didn’t mind being seen getting cozy on a recent dinner date in London.

Campbell is one of the five original supermodels, and the 43 year-old has a full plate and shows absolutely zero signs of slowing down. The entrepreneur is executive producer and co-star of The Face. Her recent age-defying Shape cover in April had everyone talking, and she is featured in the May issue of Vogue Australia by photographer Emma Summerton.
