Here, a Shot of Naomi Campbell's Eyeball-Shaped Eco-Palace

Naomi Campbell's soft and subtle nature definitely echoes in her taste in real estate. Just last year, the supermodeliest of the supermodels (and her longtime bazillionaire boyfriend) bought a Gothic palace on Venice's Grand Canal. Today, Inhabitat publishes aerial shots and blueprints of Campbell's full-on eco-palace on Turkey's Isla Playa de Cleopatra. Built by Spanish sustainable architect Luis de Garrido, the 25-bedroom compound features a steel-and-glass dome that's heated naturally, much like a greenhouse. Other green features: photovoltaic panels, a geothermal energy system, and a mechanism that harvests rainwater and treats wastewater. The whole kit 'n' caboodle is shaped like the Eye of Horus, the ancient Egyptian symbol of protection. Could this be Naom's bunker should the innocent victims of her Blackberry-throwing propensity come a knockin'?
