Naomi Campbell hits the runway for Givenchy

The original Super shows she can still slay the catwalk – and Courtney Love shows up to serenade her at the after party

Givenchy creative director Riccardo Tisci loves his female muses – whether that’s Donatella Versace, his latest campaign star, or model favourites (and Dazed cover stars) Mariacarla BosconoKendall Jenner and Jamie Bochert. For his SS16 menswear collection, he invited another special guest along for the fun – original supermodel Naomi Campbell. Joining models including Candice Swanepoel, Joan Smalls and Adriana Lima on the runway, Campbell walked in a black and gold blazer, bra, g-string, and pair of thigh high boots.

With hoop earrings, layered crucifix necklaces and pastel bustier dresses for the girls, and Jesus patches and prints for the guys, Tisci channeled Catholic symbolism for the collection. Models made their way around a labyrinthine runway, walking up stairs and crossing paths.

At the after party, Courtney Love (who earlier this week in Paris encountered some pretty serious hostage-situation style drama after her car got caught up in anti-Uber protest) showed up to serenade the guests with a cover of “No Scrubs”.
