WHAT: High fashion meets philanthropy in the form of a supermodel ‘fund fair’, the brainchild of Natalia Vodianova and her Naked Heart Foundation.
WHERE: A transatlantic event, held in New York last year and returning to London’s Roundhouse music venue next week.
WHO: Fashion’s best and brightest. Vodianova has gathered the likes of Karlie Kloss, Taylor Swift, Cara Delevingne, Naomi Campbell, Natasha Poly, Doutzen Kroes, Liv Tyler, Anja Rubik, Carolyn Murphy, Arizona Muse, Suzy Menkes and Lily Donaldson, as well as recruiting brands including Stella McCartney, Chopard, NET-A-PORTER, Buccellati, Moncler and Dior to run the chicest ‘stalls’ you’ve ever seen.
BEST DRESSED: At last year’s Halloween-themed event, the competition was fierce. But our overall award has to go to the hostess herself, who wore a Jeff Koons-inspired creation made from a balloon-covered red latex bodysuit, complete with matching crown.
It’s almost time for takeoff as Natalia Vodianova commences countdown for the next fabulous Fund Fair. On February 20, the Russian supermodel is staging something truly out of this world, creating a space odyssey in north London. Buy one of the few remaining tickets, available here (suggested donation £1,000). Last year’s event saw Vodianova selling kisses, Karlie Kloss offering a taste of her ‘Klossies’ cookies, Liv Tyler manning a coconut shy and Doutzen Kroes showing off her paper-plane skills. Attendees can also try their luck at classic games, from the hook-a-duck to skittles and bowling, to win outrageous, unique prizes provided by the likes of Fendi, Givenchy, Louis Vuitton, Versace, By Kilian, Dior, Guerlain, L’Oréal, Maxx Royal Resorts and Messika, all in the knowledge that they will be adding to the £2.3million raised so far, which continues the crucial work of Natalia Vodianova’s Naked Heart Foundation, helping children with physical, mental and sensory disabilities. Now that’s feel-good fashion.
