Naomi Campbell’s Fashion For Relief was organised by the supermodel to aid Japan’s relief efforts. Top models Yasmin Le Bon and Karoline Kurkova and actresses Rosario Dawson and Jane Fonda taking to the catwalk.
Campbell talked about the reason she organised the charity event: “The destruction caused by the earthquake is completely heartbreaking, it’s so hard to even begin to comprehend the tragic loss the people of Japan are coping with. I felt very passionate to try and help in whatever way possible, to do our part and to support Japan at this time. I hope that the money raised from Fashion For Relief in Cannes will support those who need it most.”
73 year-old Fonda, who stunned in a gold, lace overlay Marchesa couture dress as she closed the show, got the biggest cheers of the night from the audience.
