Naomi Campbell returns to Alexander McQueen runway first time since the designer's death

Naomi Campbell is honouring her dear friend, late designer Alexander McQueen, in a special way. The supermodel walked the runway at his label's Spring/Summer 2022 fashion presentation in London, modelling designs from creative director Sarah Burton's new collection. This marks the first time she has walked a runway show for the late designer's brand since McQueen's 2010 death and the company's first such event since the start of the 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 steaming down my face," Campbell, 51, wrote on Instagram. Campbell closed out the show in a black embellished cropped jacket with crystal raindrop embroidery, paired with a black strapless skeletal corset dress with an asymmetric skirt and shredded tulle storm cloud embroidery, plus boots with crystal raindrop embroidery. McQueen died of suicide at age 40 on Feb. 11, 2010. Campbell has also worn styles from his brand at celebrity events and in 2019; she presented Burton with the Trailblazer Award at the Fashion Awards in London.
