Last night Naomi Campbell played host to the likes of Ivana Trump, Carla Bruni Sarkozy and Roberto Cavalli as she staged her annual Fashion For Relief runway show in Cannes. The model - who is currently celebrating her 41st birthday - walked the runway in Alexander McQueen, Marchesa and Yves Saint Laurent and she shared the runway with Yasmin Le Bon, Rosario Dawson and Karolina Kurkova.
Despite Campbell's several appearance on the runway for the event, held at the historic Forville Market, it was Jane Fonda who stole the show. The 73 year old strutted down the runway in a beautiful gold Marchesa evening gown to a rapturous applause.
As always, the event was for a good cuase with all funds raised going directly to the victims of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan through the Japanese Red Cross.
First there were the clothes favoured by the likes of Rihanna and Kylie Minogue, then they drafted in Naomi Campbell to be the face of the summer eyewear collection but not content with that, Dolce and Gabanna are now launching a make-up line under the Animalier moniker. They have recently released a short video to preview the collection.
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?
Will 2011 be the year that Naomi Campbell and Vladislav Doronin tie the knot? If you believe Vogue's list of upcoming 2011 highlights, then maybe so. According to the magazine: "One can only imagine the stops Naomi Campbell will pull out for her upcoming wedding to Russian billionaire Vladislav Doronin. Whether in Moscow or Marrakech, all we know for certain is that this is the one invitation that even the A-list will be angling for."
Rumours originally had the couple marrying in Egypt in the temple of Luxor on the Nile - with a date as early as December 7 and 8. However, a rep for Egypt's Supreme Council for Antiquities said the group hadn't heard of Campbell's wish to wed there. The rep added: "Even if she asked for that, we would definitely refuse. Our temples are not wedding halls. This is an insult." The new talk is that Campbell and Doronin could choose Venice for their nuptials, possibly in February.
In her light of her domination of the fashion world over the last three seasons, it was hardly a surprise that Phoebe Philo won big at this year's British Fashion Awards. As expected, she walked away with the Designer of the Year award, beating competition from Erdem and Christopher Kane.
Mulberry was another winner on the night recieveing the award for best designer brand, while Nicholas Kirkwood was rightly awarded the Accessory Designer Award and Nicola Formichetti walked away with the Isabella Blow Award for Fashion Creator.
Naomi Campbell and her Russian billionaire boyfriend are set to marry at the Temple of Luxor - located on the River Nile - in a celebrity-filled ceremony. According to the New York Post, Campbell has decided to convert to the orthodox Russian faith of her fiance, Vladislav Doronin, who is often called the "Russian Donald Trump". The marriage is the first for Campbell, who met the Russian at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival.
