All proceeds from the show go to help build up the health care system in Haiti for suffering mothers and children, Campbell tells PopEater. "I'm grateful to be able to continue raising awareness & funds to benefit the mothers and babies in Haiti... I encourage everyone to please log-on and continue donating towards this urgent cause."
Backstage stylist Rachel Zoe pulled together 92 looks for the evening's event. "When Naomi Campbell calls you and wants you to style a show for her, you do it. You don't think about it," Zoe tells PopEater.
Duchess Sarah Ferguson kicked off the evening and told the audience that "tonight we can save lives in Haiti because of you." As the fashion show kicked into high gear, both celebrities and models shared the catwalk. Brown, Osbourne, Malin Ackerman, Alan Cumming and Estelle put their best foot forward and avoided any runway disasters.
The show's highlight was the final tribute to fashion designer McQueen. As the lights dimmed, a very Lady Gaga inspired Daphne Guiness hit the runway wearing a shimmery body suit. Her face was covered in white gauze. Models started hitting the runway first in one of McQueen's Spring 2010 dresses and then to his memorable fashion from other seasons. All the models, including Naomi Campbell posed at the front of the catwalk before walking back hand-in-hand.
Watch The Event
Sitting in the second row,'American's Next Top Model' stylist Jay Manuel had an emotional reaction to the tribute. "Coming through the back, it was really emotional when I passed the rack of McQueen clothing," he tells PopEater. "I've been wearing McQueen all week in memory of him. I didn't realize it was going to affect me... Coming here and seeing his clothes backstage, it saddened me."
The event also raised money for CARE, a charity focused on rebuilding Haiti's healthcare system for mothers and children. The show, which was made available to the public, sold out in less than four days with tickets ranging from $100 to $150.
All clothing modeled at the show, which included donations by major designers from Dolce&Gabbna to Zac Posen, will be sold on Net-a-porter.com starting March 15. According to the Wall Street Journal, the event raised more than $100,000 in ticket sales for Haiti. Want to help out? Send some love and money over to CARE.
