Actresses Rosario Dawson and Jane Fonda helped Naomi Campbell raise thousands for the Japan relief effort by taking part in a fashion show at France's Cannes Film Festival on Monday (16May11).
The supermodel took over the historic Forville Market for her Fashion For Relief spectacular, which saw Dawson, Yasmin Le Bon, Karolina Kurkova and Robert De Niro's wife Grace Hightower strut their stuff on the catwalk.
Campbell, who celebrates her 41st birthday on Sunday (22May11), was the first on the runway but it was Fonda, in a Marchesa evening gown, who received the loudest applause as she closed the show.
Campbell says, "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."
Artwork by Dennis Hopper and Jeff Koons, as well as photographer David La Chapelle's famous photograph of a nude Campbell, were auctioned off to benefit the victims of the Japanese earthquake and tsunami, which devastated the country's east coast in March (11).
