And while people are all praise for her look, there was a time when Naomi was criticised for her skin tone.

Back in 2016, she revealed on Instagram that people sent her direct messages on the social media, photo-sharing app telling her that she needed to work on her complexion.

'Uff! Many people slide in my dms telling me, 'you're dark', 'you're black', 'you need to work on your complexion', 'did you run away from Africa'.

She added: 'It's just too easy to hate, but Africans are beautiful, so I am taking that as a compliment.

'I am dark, but gosh, I love it, so I don't even care.

'Also just on a serious note, it took a long time for me to accept it because I was bullied in school all the time. I'm pretty much over all that, so call me whatever. LOL. Much love.'
