While last season's LFW ended with a celebrity bang at Burberry, the a/w 2010 London fashion season got off to a star-powered start with Fashion For Relief - and we're not talking about the front row.
Are you ready for the model lineup? Naomi herself, Kate Moss, Dame Shirley Bassey, Piers Morgan, Andrew Flintoff, David Gandy, Alexandra Burke, Amanda Holden, Jo Wood, The Saturdays, Nicola Roberts and Kimberley Walsh from Girls Aloud, Andrew Flintoff, Geri Halliwell, a glowing, pregnant Denise van Outen, Jamelia (with her two adorable daughters), Amber and Yasmin le Bon and plenty more. It was utterly celeb-tacular, and the best part is that all proceeds from the evening raised money for the White Ribbon Alliance for Haiti. Not that the clothes were shabby either - frocks from Mark Fast, Vivienne Westwood, Dolce & Gabbana, Jenny Packham, Ungaro, Burberry and more all made their way down the catwalk, accessorised with jewels by Stephen Webster(and unlike most fashion shows, where you have to wait months to purchase the designs you're lusting after, you can snap up your favourite items from the show on Net-a-Porter from 15 March 2010).
Highlights of the evening included the moving speeches made by Sarah Brown (who looked radiant in Issa) and host Trudi Styler about the women and children that are being helped as a result of Fashion For Relief and the lovely tribute to the late Alexander McQueen which began the catwalk show, where Campbell and Moss walked out in the designer's creations. Beverley Knight performed and David Walliams (taking lessons in strutting down the catwalk from fiancée Lara Stone, perhaps?) had the crowd raucously laughing as he vogued down the runway with James Corden by his side. As the two reached the cameras to pose, they embraced in an intimate liplock for the cheering audience. After the show, Simon de Pury hosted an auction of covetable goods including a Damien Hirst painting (made exclusively for the event) which sold for £300,000.
With this much excitement in the air before LFW has officially begun, we can't wait for the rest of the shows and parties coming our way this week! Take a look at who starred in the show below.
