Naomi Campbell may get her own reality show in the UK, ala The X Factor and America's Next Top Model.

UK/Miami - Naomi Cambell is in talk to get her own reality show in the United Kingdom. “Naomi has been approached with an offer, which we are talking about and discussing,” her spokesperson told the Daily Mail. “An initial approach has been made. We are discussing that offer, but nothing is set in stone yet.” The proposed X Factor-style show would see the 39-year-old model mentoring a group of aspiring models, while eliminating them down to a winner. The X Factor is a UK reality show produced by American Idol judge Simon Cowell, which puts aspiring singers against each other after having been chosen from auditions. Naomi is one of the most experienced and famous models in the industry who is still working today. She was the first black model to land a cover of British Vogue in December 1987. In the 1990s she was part of the iconic “supermodel” group along with Cindy Crawford, Claudia Schiffer, Christy Turlington and Linda Evangelista. She has walked for Victoria’s Secret, Chanel and Christian Dior. In October 2009 she walked the runway at the Chapurin fashion show during Paris Fashion Week. In other words if there is one supermodel who would make for entertaining TV and a great mentor to young models, Naomi would be it. What do you think, Blaynistas?

In other Naomi news, she attended the Art Basel Miami Beach’s party (shown above) with her boyfriend Vladislav Doronin over the weekend. The supermodel was one of the many guests at a dinner hosted by Remo Ruffino at Casa Tua to celebrate Moncler’s collaboration with Pharrell Williams. She still looks good.
