Star-studded audience for Naomi Campbell's Fashion For Relief LFW show

The charitable event saw its creator lead the way on the red carpet, before she took to the runway in her London Fashion Week homecoming.

Naomi Campbell drew a crowd of famous faces including Pierce Brosnan, Maya Jama, Eve and Naomie Harris to her global charity show Fashion For Relief in London.

The annual event, which returned to its UK home having been held in Cannes in recent years, also saw the likes of The Saturdays stars Mollie King and Vanessa White, model Stella Maxwell, Strictly Come Dancing contestant Viscountess Emma Weymouth, Hollywood director Dexter Fletcher, comedian Mo Gilligan, actor Luke Evans and singer Ella Eyre turn out.

Campbell was the focus of attention as she stepped out on the red carpet at the British Museum wearing a sheer black body-skimming dress that left little to the imagination.

She then made her London Fashion Week homecoming on the catwalk, donning a bright red ensemble comprised of billowing trousers and a large cape with a hood with laser-cut holes across it.

Also making a fashion impact was TV presenter Jama, who opted for a teal dress with a laced-up front and frothy skirt, complete with splits to highlight her legs.

Following the fashion show, stars and guests were entertained at a gala dinner and auction, where art and designer items were sold to raise money for this year’s charity, the Mayor’s Fund for London.

Funds from the event raised will go towards employability programmes which offer support for young Londoners from low-income backgrounds.
