New York Fashion Week: Models pause for McQueen at Fashion for Relief
There was a sombre moment of remembrance during Friday night's Fashion for Relief show. Paying tribute to her friend Alexander McQueen, Naomi Campbell dedicated the finale of her charity show to his recent passing. Joined by Helena Christensen, Karen Elson, Daphne Guinness and other famous models, Campbell paused to commemorate McQueen's work by wearing his designs (above). Afterwards, she walked backstage holding hands with Angela Lindvall with tears in her eyes.
Meanwhile, other celebs to strut their stuff in the fundraiser for Haiti included Kelly Osbourne, Estelle, Sarah "Fergie" Ferguson, Donna Karan, Diane Von Furstenberg, and Alan Cumming. A surprise model turned out to be Chris Brown, who provoked a mixed response from the audience which cheered then went silent for a few moments.
Agyness Deyn left quite an impression also, when she took not one but two tumbles on the runway. Click here to watch a video. A second Fashion for Relief show will be held in London on February 18.
