British supermodel Naomi Campbell was in Vienna on Tuesday afternoon for a quick shopping spree - but her driver received a fine after driving down a pedestrian precinct to get to the Chanel store on Kohlmarkt, according to the Austrian daily Kronen Zeitung.

Campbell, 44, was visiting her friend Kathrin Glock, who is married to the billionaire Austrian engineer and firearms company head Gaston Glock, who is more than 50 years her senior. Kathrin was one of his nurses after he had a stroke in 2008.

Campbell has visited Kathrin Glock before in Carinthia, to attend equestrian events.

The supermodel, infamous for her bad tempered outbursts, waved to crowds who gathered outside Chanel and appeared relaxed and happy. 

Vienna police spokesman Thomas Keiblinger confirmed that Campbell’s chauffeur had received a fine and had not paid on the spot.

Campbell was visiting Vienna's so-called Golden Quarter, which hosts a number of high-end fashion boutiques, as well as the luxury Park Hyatt hotel and the most expensive real estate in Austria.
