Among the red carpets and ceremonies at Cannes, last night the French Riviera welcomed another starry event – Naomi Campbell’s Fashion For Relief benefit – which saw the super take to the catwalk in a series of gorgeous gowns accompanied by some of her most famous friends in order to raise money for Japan.
Wearing a succession of show-stopping dresses by Yves Saint Laurent, Marchesa and Alexander McQueen, the super shimmied down the runway to rapturous applause.
And so did her friends. Lindsey Wixon – who tripped three times in her gold gown, poor love – Karolina Kurkova and Yasmin Le Bon all took to the catwalk to support Campbell’s charity show, as did Jane Fonda, who looked nothing short of incredible closing the show in Marchesa (seriously, Jane, how do you do it?).
“I hope that the money raised from Fashion For Relief in Cannes will support those who need it most,” Naomi told Handbag – and judging by last night’s success, we reckon it will go some way to doing just that.
