The two British supermodels turned on the style at the charity dinner party in Mayfair
Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell prepared for their rumoured appearance at the Olympics closing ceremony this weekend, by getting together last night in London for a Fashion for Relief dinner party.
Naomi, who was back to her glamorous best following some not-so-flattering pictures of her on holiday with a bald patch, turned party host in an elegant black Roberto Cavalli gown and silver bangles for the glitzy bash in celebration of the London 2012 Olympic Games and in partnership with her charity.
Fellow British supe Kate came out to support her friend, hitting the red carpet in a gold embroidered tunic dress and T-bar sandals, while a whole host of other famous fashion names turned out for the party including designers Vivienne Westwood (accompanied by husband Andreas Kronthaler) and Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen, plus models Georgia May Jagger, Lily Donaldson and Karen Elson.
Singers Alexandra Burke and Emelie Sande rubbed shoulders with other guests such as British track cyclist and London 2012 gold medal winner Dani King, Duchess of York Sarah Ferguson, Ronnie Wood and TV host Bruce Forsyth.
Even though details on the Olympic Games closing ceremony is all hush-hush at the moment, we can only assume that this party was a get-together in preparation for the catwalk segment of the show. Rumours began to surface last month that the cream of the UK modelling industry, including all of the attendees at last night’s dinner, would hit the catwalk in the Olympic Stadium wearing the best that British fashion has to offer – think designs by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen and Vivienne Westwood – to a soundtrack of rock ‘n’ roll classics.
And it wouldn’t be the first time that Kate and Naomi have strutted their stuff on the runway for Fashion for Relief’s fund-raising shows. Back in 2010, the duo hit the catwalk to raise money for the Haiti earthquake appeal just a week after the death of their close friend Alexander McQueen. The two models wore blue printed dresses by the designer in his honour.
