Last night, several stars, designers, and supermodels came together for a benefit runway show organized by Naomi Campbell to help raise money for CARE, "an organization working to rebuild Haiti's health-care system for women and children." Styles and smiles ahead:
Kelly Osbourne, looking adorable, as usual, in this little red number. The designer wasn't specified on the picture description, though according to the New York Daily News, several designers, including Dolce & Gabbana and Christian Dior, offered their clothes for the show, and all of the outfits seen on this runway will be auctioned off via Net-A-Porter, with the proceeds going to charity.
The fact that this was a benefit show meant that the typical or expected rules of a fashion week runway did not apply. This runway was filled with smiles and silly poses, something one rarely sees, as the focus is meant to be on the clothing, and not the models, though in all honesty, I wish every runway show was more like this. Seeing people celebrate in the clothes, live in the clothes, and seem to enjoy wearing the clothes is more of a draw for me, personally, than seeing people look miserable going down the runway.
Getty described this pic as "a model" taking a tumble, though I'm pretty sure that's Agyness Deyn, no? Whomever it is, she even makes falling down look fashionable.
And here's Naomi herself in a beautiful, flowing blue dress.
This dress is kind of like a prom mullet, right?
Glam-o-rama! (I'm choosing to believe that's faux fur. Otherwise: sad-o-rama.)
I don't know who invited this douchebag, but I'm 99% convinced that his appearance was more about rescuing his own image than rescuing anyone else.
The only other male I saw in the photo galleries was Alan Cumming, who will always be Sandy Frink to me.
Donna Karan was all smiles, as well...
And Diane Von Furstenberg was sassy and classy, all at once.
And here's Fergie, who was Fergie before Fergie was Fergie, know what I'm sayin?
When I was 15 or so, I really disliked Helena Christensen because she briefly dated my imaginary boyfriend, Billy Corgan. All is forgiven now. Also: does she ever age? Ever?
Selita Ebanks' swirly pastel number reminds me of Sweet Tarts. Really, really expensive Sweet Tarts.
And here, a model displays an Alexander McQueen creation, which is both stunning and sad.
But it was Naomi's night, and she headed down the runway several times to help the cause. In a piece for the Huffington Post, Campbell wrote: "I look forward to visiting Haiti to witness how the funds we raise are helping make a difference. Mothers and their children are Haiti's future; we must not let them down."
