This was the third consecutive year that Naomi has organised the event during Fashion Week to raise money for worthy causes. This year her chosen charity was one that is also close to ELLE's heart, The White Ribbon Alliance and to introduce the show and speak about the work of this charity, Britain's first lady Sarah Brown made her second appearance at Fashion Week to address the packed BFC Tent.
Naomi had also recruited famous models friends and celebrity pals to star in the spectacular show, which was followed by an auction of the featured dresses. The feathered Zac Posen creation Naomi chose to sport on the catwalk (pictured) raised £25,000 alone, while British jewellers Garrard, the sponsors of the night, donated a diamond pendant that raised £12,000.
Alice Dellal, Cheryl Cole, Jamilia, Erin O'Connor, Daisy Lowe and The Sugarbabes were just some of the special guest models in the show, as well as Cilla Black, who serenaded the front row as she danced down the catwalk in a top hat, tailcoat and not much else.
It was then off to London's chic Taman Gang restaurant in Mayfair for the star studded after show party.
