Not even Naomi Campbell couldn’t resist a selfie outside the outstanding new National Museum of Qatar.
The 48-year-old captured photos of herself in front of the striking new building, designed by French architect Jean Nouvel, as she attended the grand opening on Wednesday in Doha.
Guest of honour Naomi looked refined in a floor-sweeping white gown and sunglasses as she held up her phone, admiring the exterior.

The idea for the striking design is inspired by the complex architectural form of a desert rose, found in Qatars arid desert regions.
An awestruck Naomi took her own photos of the exterior, before posing for some official portraits outside the brand new building.
She wore the perfect bright white gown, complete with a bejewelled collar necklace that framed the top of the high-neck dress.
