Naomi Campbell honors her dear friend, late designer Alexander McQueen, in a special way.
On Tuesday, October 12, the supermodel went on the runway at his Spring / Summer 2022 fashion show in London, models by the designer of the creative director Sarah Burtonhis new collection. This marks the first time she has attended a runway show for the late designer’s brand since McQueen’s death in 2010 and the company’s first such event since the beginning of COVID-19 Pandemic in March 2020.
“Mc QUEEN: The whole time my heart was in my chest, trying to stop the tears of an overwhelming emotion from evaporating from my face,” Campbell, 51, wrote on Instagram. “Feel so strong Lee, maybe even. You looked in the shape of a bird flying over and around the entire broadcast @alexandermcqueen SS22 #Sarah Burton and Team Mc Queen thank you #homesweethome.”
Campbell closed the show in a black single-breasted embellished cropped jacket with crystal-red embroidery, paired with a black strapless skeleton corset dress with an asymmetrical skirt and a degraded torn tulle storm wool embroidery, plus arc boots with crystal brooches.
