Naomi Campbell‘s wardrobe choices have been a topic of interest lately and if one thing is for certain, it’s that Campbell is the ultimate trendsetter. Her latest look is a testament to that.
The former Vogue Arabia cover star attended the National Portrait Gallery gala in London on Tuesday night wearing a black coat slung around her shoulders and a printed, plunging gown from Azzedine Alaïa, who passed away over a year ago in Paris just months after presenting his Fall 2017 Couture collection, his last offering, in his atelier in the Marais neighborhood. The dress was a tribute to the man who took her in when she was just 16-years-old, and whom she affectionately refers to as “Papa”. According to the supermodel’s Instagram, the look was Alaïa’s “last dress”. She accessorized the gown with a single, long, navy-colored glove, leather waist-cinching belt, and a stack of Samer Halimeh diamond jewels. A matching clutch completed the elegant look.
Azzedine Alaïa is a staple in the iconic supermodel’s wardrobe. Her collection of the Tunisian designer’s dresses is legendary. For Fashion Week or glamorous red carpet events, you can certainly almost always count on Campbell to pull out a show-stopping Alaïa look from the archives, and last night was no exception.
