British beauty Naomi Campbell has given up modelling for top fashion label VERSACE - because it brings back memories of pal Gianni Versace's murder.

Versace, who was very close friends with Campbell and regularly used her in his shows, was gunned down in 1997 on the steps of his Florida home. And Campbell has since opted to stay away from Versace shows, which are now run by the late designer's sister DONATELLA.

The 33-year-old stunner says, "I miss him. I miss his honesty and his boldness and his support and his love. He was very polite, very sweet, but no bulls***."
