Naomi Campbell: It's in my head. It's there. I remember.

Jeff VanderMeer: It just didn’t seem to want to be edited.

Campbell: Supposedly. That's what a vacation is—chilling, swimming, running.

VanderMeer: And then we tend to destroy things or change things before we even truly understand them.

Campbell: I was just asking myself that, because where I am right now, it was perfectly fine and quiet, and then I went outside, and there they were.


VanderMeer: Maybe she seems unreliable, but she’s very reliable, she knows exactly what she’s doing.

Campbell: She’s so much fun. I kidnapped her and that was it. It was very emotional.

VanderMeer: Well, I mean, the dream was the catalyst.

Campbell: Are you nervous when you go on the runway?

VanderMeer: No. [laughs] Yeah.


Campbell: But it depends, honestly, on where I am and what I'm doing.

VanderMeer: There is also the issue of what we can and can’t perceive through our senses.

Campbell: I didn't do it for 14 years, and I had to keep my appearance a secret for many months.

VanderMeer: But I got used to it.

Campbell: It comes with the job.
