It’s not often you get to see some of the most famouse people in the fashion, music, television and sports worlds team up to take part in a charity fashion event but Naomi Campbell pulled off yet another amazing Fashion For Relief show last night.
The supermodel enlisted the help of fellow models Kate Moss and Erin O’Connor as well as Spice Girl Geri Halliwell, Girls Aloud’s Nicola Roberts and Kimberley Walsh, Dame Shirley Bassey, Pixie Geldof, a pregnant Denise Van Outen and even Ronnie Corbert.
They were joined by England cricketer Freddie Flintoff, Britain’s Got Talent judges Piers Morgan and Amanda Holden, and David Walliams and James Corden, who shared a cheeky kiss at the end of the catwalk.
The charity event was held to raise money for the White Ribbon Alliance’s work with the survivors of the Haitian earthquake. Patron of the alliance Sarah Brown spoke about the incredible effect the charity’s work has in Haiti, before handing over to Trudie Styler to introduce the event.
The star-packed modelling crew showcased a host of designer delights including Alexander McQueen (worn in tribute by Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell), Vivienne Westwood, Balmain and Diane Von Furstenberg.
All of the clothes seen on the catwalk will go on sale exclusively on net-a-porter.com in March with all proceeds going to help Haiti.
As well as the fashion show there was a live charity auction of priceless items and experiences to be had by the highest bidder. Among the top selling items was an exclusive Damien Hirst art-work which went for £300,000, Kate Moss’s Alexander McQueen dress which went for £100,000, a Stephen Webster necklace for £10,000 and Naomi Campbell’s gold corset dress designed by Vivienne Westwood for £20,000.
Incredibly over £1.4million was raised alone last night. For more information on the White Ribbon Alliance click here and be sure to visit net-a-porter.com from March 15, 2010 to snap up an incredible designer item – all for a good cause!
