Coronavirus: Naomi Campbell wears full hazmat suit, face mask and gloves during flight amid outbreak

'Safety first', says supermodel

Naomi Campbell shares extreme in-flight hygiene routine

Naomi Campbell has shared the precautionary measures she is taking to ensure she stays germ free while travelling amid the coronavirus outbreak.

As a supermodel, Campbell is used to travelling in style but as fears surrounding the spread of covid-19 continue to grow, the 49-year-old’s appears to be more concerned with staying healthy than looking glamorous.

On Tuesday, Campbell posted a series of photos of her at Los Angeles International Airport on Instagram, in which she could be seen wearing a full-body white hazmat suit, a blue face mask, safety goggles and purple gloves.

“Safety First NEXT LEVEL,” she captioned the pictures. “Full video coming on my YouTube soon…”

The first image shows the model posing at the airport terminal to show off her full outfit, which is accessorised with black and white trainers and a matching suitcase.

The second photo features Campbell sitting in her seat on the plane with a brown cape draped over her shoulders to keep her warm during the flight, while a third shows her leaving the airport as she makes a telephone call and clutches on to a grey blanket.

Many of Campbell’s followers and celebrity friends commented on the post, which has since received more than 250,000 likes.

‘Omg I hope that is not an airplane blanket and it’s your own. Those don’t get washed thoroughly,” rapper Azealia Banks wrote, while designer Marc Jacobs commented: “That’s my sister.”

Elsewhere, model and activist Munroe Bergdorf called the supermodel the “Queen of hygienic travel”, while several fans commented on how Campbell managed to turn the hamza suit into a fashion moment.

“Safety but make it fashion,” one person wrote, while another added: “Naomi makes everything fashionable.”

This is not the first time the model has shared the lengths she goes to when it come to hygiene while travelling.

In 2019, Campbell went viral after. sharing a YouTube video of her intense pre-flight routine, which detailed how she disinfects her seat once boarding the plane.

The five-minute video showed the model scrubbing down her seat’s television display, armrests, tray table and seatbelt using sanitising wipes and wearing disposable plastic gloves that she carries in her travel bag. After thoroughly cleaning her area, Campbell then placed a personal seat cover for her chair, which she said is “hand washed at every hotel” and replaced at the end of the week.

“Clean anything you touch. Anything you could possibly touch,” she said in the video.

“This is what I do on every plane I get on. I do not care what people think of me. It’s my health and it makes me feel better.”

In the video, Campbell could also be seen wearing a black face mask that covered her nose and mouth.

“I will eventually end up sitting like this the whole entire flight,” she shares after taking a seat.

“No matter what plane you take, private or commercial, as the plane descends people start coughing and sneezing. And the coughing and sneezing makes me…I just can’t.”

“As much as I travel, I should get sick so much more with colds and stuff and I’m blessed that I don’t,” she added. “I really think this helps me — my little routine.”
