Georgia May Jagger, Kate Moss, Lily Donaldson and Naomi Campbell
Yesterday we finally saw the likes of Stella Tennant, Kate Moss and Jourdan Dunn hit the runway at the closing ceremony wearing British designers like Victoria Beckham and Alexander McQueen but the party started before the event.
Ahead of the festivities Naomi Campbell hosted a party in the capital to mark the Olympics but also for her Fashion for Relief charity. As you would expect, the party was full of fashion folk like Vivienne Westwood and Ozwald Boateng but Campbell did actually invite some athletes so British cyclist Dani King was there along, who naturally turned up sporting her gold medal.
If you're at Westfield London tomorrow, then you might have a run-in with Naomi Campbell. The supermodel will be at the mall to launch her latest charity initiative, a one-week-only Fashion for Relief pop-up shop to benefit The Prince's Trust. On offer? Looks from Fashion for Relief designers (including Christopher Kane, Tom Ford and Vivienne Westwood), which were previously showcased on the catwalks of the relief effort's New York and London fashion shows.
You can expect stock to be replenished daily at the shop, which will be open from April 6 to 12 - with tomorrow's special preview open to a select few. The shop will feature rotating DJs (for those whose shopping requires intensive musical entertainment), and celebrities "from the world of glamour and fashion" will be on hand to serve shoppers. Not a bad way to drop a bit of cash, hmm?
Last month we reported how Naomi Campbell had joined forces with Sarah Brown to organise a star-studded fashion show, in aid of the survivors of the Haiti earthquake. The day has finally come, and later this evening, designers and supermodels alike will all take to the catwalk modelling dresses by Carolina Herrera, Dolce & Gabbana and Christian Dior, to name but a few. Look out for the likes of Helena Christensen, alongside Diane Von Furstenberg, Donna Karan and, of course, Naomi.
Naomi Campbell sported a metallic veil and walked with a golden dagger down her first African catwalk this week. Why the get-up? To symbollically attack global discrimination against black models. Campbell staged a Fashion for Relief charity fashion show in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania - a new continent for Campbell's previous charity stops, which have included New York, London and Mumbai.
"Where do we see a woman of color in an advert? It's quite blatant," Campbell told Reuters. "There's definitely space (for more black models) but has there been enough effort? It was getting better but it's slipped back this year."
Naomi Campbell feels exceptionally global these days. When she’s not interviewing Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez or jetsetting with her wealthy Russian lover, Vladislav Doronin, it seems she’s putting on charity fashion shows in India.
