The supers were also joined at the bash by regional icons including Farida Khelfa and Sonia Ben Ammar.

She might be in town for a few red-carpet premieres, but Bella Hadid is also putting her star power behind some worthy causes while in Cannes.

The half-Palestinian supermodel took part in the annual Fashion for Relief charity catwalk show on Sunday night, joining fellow models including Winnie Harlow and Natalia Vodianova on the runway.

The fundraising gala event, founded by fashion icon Naomi Campbell back in 2005, this year supported the Time’s Up movement, as well as Save The Children.

“This year’s proceeds will enable Save the Children to provide life-saving food, shelter and medical treatment to children around the world, including those who have been affected by the conflict in Syria,” the charity revealed on its events page.


As well as the catwalk display, the evening also included a dinner, musical performance, and an auction of art and fashion pieces donated by notable names.

Guests included Sara Sampaio, The Weeknd, Michelle Rodriguez, Paris Hilton and Carla Bruni, with many posing on the red carpet ahead of the gala.


Hadid stopped for photos wearing a midriff-baring custom Julien Macdonald dress, dripping in black sequins.

Tunisian catwalk star Sonia Ben Ammar also put in an appearance, as did French-Algerian model, actress and filmmaker Farida Khelfa.

This is the 13th Fashion for Relief event organised by British super Campbell, and the second in which 21-year-old Hadid has participated.

Campbell, one of the industry’s most long-standing faces, even hinted during the gala that she might hang up her catwalk shoes soon.

“I don’t know if I can walk much longer, it’s been 32 years,” the 47-year-old said, according to the Daily Mail.

“But it’s an honour to walk… I’d love for it to be carried on by the younger generation and for me to sit in the audience and watch.”

Here’s hoping we still get more years of Campbell on the catwalk – we can’t imagine runways without her.
