46-year old supermodel Naomi Campbell hosted a fashion show for her Fashion for Relief charity at the Cannes Film Festival on Sunday. More than 400 guests attended the event, which this year raised money for Save the Children.

The models donned t-shirts and hoodies with rainbow heart and ladybird designs from ‘Child at Heart’, a collection designed by Campbell in collaboration with Diesel to support the charity organisation. Highlighting the cause, the prints were drawn by children from Diesel’s own nursery school in Veneto, Italy.

“Working with Renzo means we could reach a huge audience, and raise money to help so many children in Africa,” said the model to FashionNetwork.com earlier in April when she announced her collaboration with Diesel.

The Italian brand’ creative director Nicola Formichetti also created two exclusive looks for the catwalk show. Based on classic Diesel styles, the pieces were reworked to create something new and were presented to the public for the first time. Guests included Diesel founder Renzo Rosso and his partner Arianna Alessi, Jeremy Renner, Anna Cleveland, Paris Hilton and Chris Zylka, to name a few.

The catwalk was equally star studded with high profile models including Heidi Klum, Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid, Chris Lee, Natasha Poly, Jasmine Sanders and Isabeli Fontana taking the catwalk by storm.

Diesel and Campbell’s Child at Heart collection will be available for purchase online and at 145 Diesel stores worldwide, with portions of the proceeds going to Fashion for Relief.

The campaign for the collection was shot by photographer Giampaolo Sgura and sees Campbell modelling the pieces alongside Diesel’s Nicola Formichetti. Models Barbara Palvin, Matt McMahon, Molly Blair and Wang Chen Ming are also featured in the campaign.
