Supermodel Naomi Campbell turned heads on Thursday at Louis Vuitton’s show during Paris Fashion Week, according to People Magazine.
The show featured Virgil Abloh’s last collection with the luxury designer after the late fashion creator died at age 41 from cancer in November. Celebrities from all over attended the highly anticipated show, including Campbell, who sat next to Abloh’s wife, Shannon, in the front row. Abloh was dressed in a floral suit while her hair was styled in an up-do with face-framing bangs. She accessorized the look with a mustard yellow Louis Vuitton handbag.
Campbell, 51, arrived at the event wearing a sporty Louis Vuitton ensemble, paired with white ankle boots and oversized shades. She kept her hair and makeup simple for the event.
On Wednesday, Louis Vuitton teased the upcoming event in a post on its Instagram account, “Humor is an entry point for humanity.” Designed by Virgil Abloh, the next #LouisVuitton Men’s Collection will be presented at the Carreau du Temple in Paris on January 20th” the caption wrote.
