Naomi Campbell claims she was attracted to Vladislav Doronin because he is ''strong'' and she cannot tell him what to do.
Naomi Campbell likes "strong" men.
The British supermodel - who has been dating Russian billionaire Vladislav Doronin for around three years - admits she is attracted to people who know their own minds and are not afraid to stand up to her.
She said: "I like men that are strong. I like the men to wear the pants. I like strong men that know what they want, know what they are doing, that tell me what to do.
"I cannot tell Vlad what to do."
She insisted to US TV talk show host Oprah Winfrey: "I can buy what I want.
"Have I ever dated someone who wasn't well off? Yeah, a working class man. A man in the arts. I have dated someone poor."
Vladislav recently spoke about his and Naomi's plans to tie the knot, revealing fashion designer-and-magazine editor Dasha Zhukova - the partner of Chelsea soccer club owner Roman Abramovich - will be bridesmaid.
Online newspaper life.ru quoted the 47-year-old business tycoon as saying: "I can't say it took us long to decide who will be bridesmaid.
"We are good friends with Dasha, she is a wonderful person and talented designer. So she will be next to Naomi at our wedding."
However, he did not reveal details of any wedding date.
