Designers and celebrities including Donna Karan, Diane von Furstenberg, Georgina Chapman, Estelle, Kelly Osbourne, Margherita and Missoni leant their names to The Fashion for Relief show last Friday.
Hosted by Naomi Campbell the catwalk show was designed to help the people of earthquake-ravaged Haiti. The supermodel also took to the catwalk in a short, black, sequined flapper dress with sky scraper heels.
However, it wasn’t “alright on the night” for model du jour Agyness Deyn, who took a leaf out of Naomi’s previous book and took a tumble – twice – in her Burberry sandals, before winning our hearts by strutting back, barefoot
She tweeted afterward: “1st show of fashion week! Took a tumble! Got up! Fell again. Should have stayed down the 1st time. Twice! WTF! Ouch my knees!”
There also came a very special and tearful tribute for Alexander McQueen, which included model and Daphne Guinness walking down the catwalk in a glittery, full-length bodysuit from the late designer’s spring collection. Other models including Helena Christensen, Georgina Chapman and Naomi herself followed wearing designer Alexander McQueen from head to toe in tribute.
