(NEW YORK) As Fashion Week rolls on, so do the efforts to support the people of Haiti. Last night, the tents were buzzing with excitement and anticipation, as it was clear that Naomi Campbell was in the house. The super’s massive charity fashion show, Fashion for Relief, promised to feature a slew of chicsters in designs which will all be auctioned off at Net-A-Porter beginning March 15th. Campbell spearheaded the show, as friends and supporters including fellow models, fashion designers, actors and musicians stomped down the runway in designer looks put together by Rachel Zoe.
Agyness Deyn must have been having a major wardrobe malfunction in the shoe department though—the seasoned model took not one but two spills on the runway. Other famous catwalkers faired a bit better. Donna Karan and Diane Von Furstenberg took to the runway with ease, as well as Karen Elson, Helena Christensen, Tanya Dziahileva, Selita Ebanks, Chris Brown, Alan Cumming, Lorenzo Martone, Kelly Osbourne, and Estelle. Runway tumbles and all, the night was a smashing success. “Naomi did a fantastic job!" raved Georgina Chapman. "We’re all so thrilled to be here and support her and efforts for help in Haiti. It’s really amazing.”
