Campbell catwalk outing terrified Kelly

Campbell catwalk outing terrified Kelly

Kelly Osbourne was "terrified" when she walked down the catwalk with Naomi Campbell.

The 24-year-old star was asked to appear in a fashion show alongside the British supermodel in 2005, and admits it was a daunting experience.

She said: "Walking down the catwalk with Naomi was, hands down, the most awkward thing that has ever happened to me. I was wearing this stupid wig and all I could think was, 'I'm a 5ft 2ins albino and she's an African goddess. I look f***ing ridiculous.' "

Kelly insists Naomi's reputation as a diva is undeserved, claiming her support was the only thing that got her through the experience.

She explained to Britain's Grazia magazine: "Of all the sickeningly gorgeous people to go through it with, though, I'm glad it was Naomi - she knew I was freaking out and coaxed me on the runway.

"She's so lovely, unlike a lot of models. She loves nothing more than a good meal and an evening out - she's got a wicked sense of humour."
