PARIS – Naomi Campbell drew cheers on the catwalk at Paris fashion week on Sunday when the 43-year-old supermodel opened the first haute couture show of the season for Versace in a sparkling black micro sequin jacket.

Constructed using hook and eyes to hold the jacket together, the fastenings were “left undone in places giving the impression of being undressed”, the house said, adding that each hook was held in place with Swarovski crystals.

Using sequins, crystals, embroidery and beading in a palette of black, deep emerald, ruby red and sapphire blue Donatella Versace’s autumn 2013/winter 2014 couture collection wallowed in a sense of unashamed luxury.

In some looks, the shape of the body was emphasised through exposed midriffs or transparent side panels down the shoulder, arm and leg.

Campbell closed the show with another enthusiastically received turn, this time in a body suit embroidered with black crystals and a woven mink fur, chiffon and silk tulle cardigan.

Four days of couture shows begin in earnest on Monday with the collection of the season –  Christian Lacroix’s come-back tribute to the late Italian designer Elsa Schiaparelli.

Lacroix, feted by fashion editors in the 1990s after he created the first couture house to open in a quarter century in 1987, lost his fashion house in December 2009 after it ran up millions of dollars in debts.

In his first collection in four years, Lacroix will present 18 reinterpretations of Schiaparelli designs for the relaunched fashion house.

    This super model was also an actress. I remember seeing her movie with a white leading man. There was a kissing scene wherein Campbell was kissing the leading man with gusto but the actor sure was trying his best to cut it short. I think the actor puke after the shoot.

      must be the halitosis of ketones from dieting with less carbs

        Most probably Naomi Campbell was suffering halitosis (bad breath). But on the other hand Richard Gere enjoyed very much every kissing scene with Cindy Crawford (also a super model) and even married her. Hmmm quite a difference.
