Supermodel Naomi Campbell has penned a moving tribute to Harry Brant after he died of an accidental drug overdose on Sunday at the age of 24.
“It’s taken me a few days to get my head around this to digest the fact my beautiful godson Harry Brant has gone to the spiritual world,” she wrote in an Instagram post.
“Since you were a baby, you had this innate magical joy, that you bought [sic] to all who was around you,” she said.
Campbell and Brant’s mom, Stephanie Seymour, were a part of an exclusive group of elite supermodels during the 1980s and 1990s. Campbell also served as one of Seymour’s bridesmaids when she wed Brant’s dad, Peter, in 1995.
Campbell remembered Harry causing quite the stir within the fashion community, even as a kid.
“I would take you take you to my meetings, and they would ask me if they could hire you. You were not even 10 yrs old. Smart as a whip, creativity bursting from you on every level,” she wrote.
“Harry, you’ve taken a piece of my heart. We never judged each other. Our ship was always honest. Too young.. to go. I will love you unconditionally always, and I know [late designer Azzedine Alaïa] and [late Vogue Italia editor Franca Sozzani] will take care of you on the other side! Where we will meet and be in joy once more.”
She signed off: “Your godmother.”
