Campbell: Pat McGrath is the one and only

Naomi Campbell has told Pat McGrath she feels "blessed" to know her in a touching birthday message.

The iconic make-up artist celebrated her 45th birthday on Thursday and her loyal clients came out in full force on social media, sending their well wishes her way.

Supermodel Naomi has worked with the cosmetics genius for years and shared her appreciation on Instagram, where she posted a snap of the two of them together.

"#happy birthday @patmcgrathreal I love you !! You are one and only !!! #proud !! Blessed your in my life Omi (sic)" she captioned the shot.

Naomi wasn't alone in praising the beauty expert for everything she's done for models. Victoria's Secret Angel Candice Swanepoel referred to her as "mother make-up", while designer Nicolas Ghesquière called her a "dear friend".

Meanwhile Jessica Stam used her Instagram to post: "happy birthday to the one and only @patmcgrathreal aka #mother #obsessed #iconic #givingface #servingbeauty #legend thank you for making us smile and laugh with your beautiful soul (sic)".

Gigi Hadid also wished Pat a happy birthday on Twitter, while Jacquelyn Jablonski used the opportunity to share one of her fondest memories with the make-up artist.

"#tbt baby me at my first Prada show. Make up by birthday girl @patmcgrathreal ! First bleached brows experience too #prada (sic)," she wrote on Instagram, alongside a picture of her on the runway.

Last year, the New Year Honours List awarded Pat with an MBE for her work in the fashion world.
