Naomi Campbell Gets Into Some S&M Action For Agent Provocateur Campaign (PHOTOS)

Global Grind

Naomi Campbell for Agent Provocateur

Earlier this month, Naomi Campbell, who’s notorious for keeping things really real, claimed she’s softened up over the years. We’d like to know which part of her she was referring to, because there is absolutely nothing soft about this.

The queen of the catwalk is the star of the Agent Provocateur Spring/Summer 2015 campaign, in which she strips down to show off lace lingerie paired with thigh-highs and accessorized with handcuffs, a whip, and our personal favorite, a shovel.

Inspired by thrillers Lost Highway and Body Double, the ads feature the British-born beauty with a lob in lieu of her signature long tresses and a deep burgundy lip in all of her seductive photos, which you can see below.

After a grand jury cleared Ferguson Officer Darren Wilson of any wrongdoing after shooting and killing an unarmed teenager in August, reports are now saying there were flaws in the grand jury key witness account.

According to The Smoking Gun, the grand jury witness who testified that she saw Michael Brown charge at Darren Wilson is said to be bipolar, racist, and has a criminal record.

“Witness 40,” identified as Sandra McElroy, was diagnosed at age 16 with bipolar disorder and has not been on medication for over 25 years. She has posted several racist messages and other messages in favor of Wilson via numerous social media accounts.

In interviews with police, FBI agents, and federal and state prosecutors, the eyewitness delivered information that proved to be false and biased towards Wilson. Apparently, McElroy wasn’t even near the scene of the shooting.

The Smoking Gun examined criminal, civil, matrimonial, and bankruptcy court records…
