Naomi Campbell is currently in France attending the 2011 Cannes International Film Festival, but unlike the other celebrities, Naomi will actually be hosting her own event during the famous festival
Yesterday the model attended a photocall for her Fashion For Relief event. Tao Okamoto, Franca Sozzani, Zach Abraham and Philip Huang joined Naomi posing for photos by the harbor-side.
Naomi recently voiced her shock and horror over the disaster in Japan and wanted to make a difference.
“The destruction caused by the earthquake is completely heartbreaking, it’s so hard to even begin to comprehend the tragic loss the people of Japan are coping with. I felt very passionate to try and help in whatever way possible, to do our part and to support Japan at this time. I hope that the money raised from Fashion For Relief in Cannes will support those who need it most.”
Dolce & Gabbana designed charity T-shirts and other various designers have donated red carpet dresses for the show.
Fashion for Relief was founded in 2005 to help aid the Hurricane Katrina victims and has raised £4.5 million so far.
