Please welcome your newest member, supermodel Naomi Campbell. Although she does not specify that she finds shorts on men to be equivalent to having a hand grenade approach her, she does admit to "detesting" the idea of people wearing the ultra-cropped pant on airplanes. Campbell also advises that frequent fliers carry multiple pairs of shoes when traveling—a heel for arrival, a flat for the plane, and a high heel for when you get off. Naomi's take on shorts: They have a time and place, and hours on an airplane is not that time or that place.
