Naomi Campbell’s Fashion For Relief 2009

  • Pin it

Naomi Campbell can be surprising at times. Fighting with her violent and questionable temper, she doesn’t forget the noble causes she represents.

Fashion for Relief brought together many big names and pretty faces for a good cause. The catwalk was taken by the celebs walking down their frocks for the White Ribbon Alliance for Safe Motherhood. Dame Vivienne Westwood herself graced the audience wearing her own design and smiling all catwalk long. While rumors about Naomi’s retirement and courting motherhood spread more and more, she walked down the runway alongside young Chanel Iman.

They both had the same dress, Naomi in black and Chanel in white, signed Azzedine Allaia. Naomi, nervous as a first runner opened the show with an impressive Zac Posen green dress (which raised $50,000 in the auction) changing into an YSL (familiar to everyone from the YSL Ad Campaign or the photo shoot from I-D Magazine).

The Fashion for Relief was a smashing success and hopefully, it will raise not only funds but also awareness for the world’s charity causes. After the jump you can see the images I selected (a kind of my best of). Between them, it’s Skin (the voice of Skunk Anansie) with a gorgeous pair of high red suede boots (and in another picture she wears a breathtaking necklace). Have to say I absolutely love them! Which one’s your favorite?

Naomi is a great model and she looks great! Its wonderful seeing her walk side by side with Chanel with them both wearing the same dress but different colours. It seems like she has matured, in the old days she would have refused to share the catwalk and spotlight with another Black model.
I am also very thrilled to see so many beautiful Black women doing this show! : )
