Legendary shoemaker Manolo Blahnik has criticised the media coverage of British model Naomi Campbell. The footwear maestro's outburst comes just weeks before the feisty supermodel goes on trial for allegedly assaulting her housekeeper with a mobile phone. Blahnik tells the New York Post, "I've known her since she was 15. She's divine. She's not easy, but the press is so mean to her. They hate her."
