Supermodel Naomi Campbell returned to the catwalk yesterday after avoiding a prison sentence for an air rage assault on a British Airways flight.
The 38-year-old model appeared to be back to her best as she sailed down the runway at the Dolce & Gabbana lingerie at Milan Fashion Week.
Campbell had accused BA of racism, claiming cabin crew staff called her a ‘Gollywog’.
She branded the airline ‘disgusting’ – a day after pleading guilty to charges over an air-rage row.
The unrepentant star – now banned for life from BA flights – said: ‘I was called a racial name on that flight and that was part of my reaction.
‘I was called a “Gollywog supermodel”. I don’t think that’s really fair, do you?’
She spoke out before she flew to Italy on another airline.
On Friday, Campbell was ordered to carry out 200 hours’ community work for kicking and spitting at police officers.
She also screamed at the BA pilot when one of her bags went missing during chaos at Heathrow’s new Terminal 5.

But she claimed she had reacted to racist abuse by a member of the airline.
A BA spokeswoman firmly denied any racist remark had been made.
She said: ‘BA does not accept any allegations of racism.
'We have strict policies concerning dignity at work and longstanding training programmes on diversity and inclusion.’
Magistrates at Uxbridge, West London, heard how Campbell screamed and swore at BA captain Miles Sutherland after she was told about her missing bag as she sat in her £5,000 first-class seat waiting for her flight to Los Angeles to take off.
She lashed out when police arrived to remove her.

The model pleaded guilty to two counts of assaulting a police officer, one of disorderly conduct likely to cause harassment and using threatening, abusive words or behaviour.
Magistrates told Campbell that the community service was part of a 12-month order.
They ordered her to pay compensation of £200 each to the two officers she assaulted and £150 to the captain. She was also fined £2,300.
Campbell admitted after the court hearing that she ‘took it too far’.
But she added: ‘As for British Airways, I don’t apologise. I just think they’re disgusting because there are people still waiting for their luggage.’
