Naomi Campbell knows her best angles, even in a protective suit. The supermodel and prolific Instagram user – her strap, precisely, is just naomi – posted four photos of herself on Tuesday night, each wearing a protective suit, gloves and face mask. "Safety first," she captioned the first independent image:
But it was the second she actually used her modeling skills, posing with a suitcase inside Los Angeles International Airport and taking a selfie on board, her pink latex gloves on full display. "Safety first NEXT LEVEL" began the caption:
It's easy to imagine rich, well-connected celebrities taking abundant precautions as Covid-19 spreads across the world. America's Got Talent judge Howie Mandel, known for avoid handshakes long before it was in vogue, she was photographed wearing a gas mask and a protective suit on the way to work on Tuesday. Celine Dion only has a cold but he postponed his shows anyway, and became one of select people in America to actually be tested for Covid-19. When one spread of false rumors on Tuesday that Daniel Radcliffe was the “first famous person to be publicly confirmed” as a coronavirus carrier, it was particularly shocking because, wait, he’s famous! Shouldn't he be able to wear his protective suit and avoid it?
It's undeniably dystopian to see famous people posing for Instagram in protective gear, just like New York state hand sanitizer or the delay of a film that nobody realized existed it can be funny if they don't represent something so dark. On the other hand, in the absence of real government or authority guidance, why not let Howie Mandel and Naomi Campbell show us how to respond? The handwashing meme could very well turn into a dangerous selfie and, like everything else, Naomi will get there first.
