In her more than three decades in fashion modeling, there’s no dress Naomi Campbell hasn’t worn before. From the little dress dresses, the ones with super thigh-high slits to the most dramatic, she’s worn them all. So the supermodel understands every assignment when it to dressing up.
The 51-year-old attended the Prince’s Trust Gala in New York on Thursday night, where she stole the show in a custom Valentino creation. The look, a ballgown featuring a Bardot neckline with a long-sleeve off-the-shoulder design and a voluminous full skirt completes with side pockets. Campbell finished the majestic number with a pair of Valentino Garavani matching ‘Tan-go platform pumps‘ and dangling green earrings.
Sharing her looks on Instagram, the new mom-of-one expressed her gratitude for the wonderful evening, along with an appreciation to the show hosts Lionel Richie and Edward Enninful, the British Vogue Editor-in-Chief. While also thanking the Creative Director of Pierpaolo Piccioli for the beautiful confection, Campbell said she felt like a dream wearing her favorite color.
“Congratulations to @princestrust wonderful evening in aiding the next generation achieve their goals,” the model wrote on Instagram. “Thank you @lionelrichie @edward_enninful for hosting us all and inviting me !! Thank you @pppiccioli @maisonvalentino for making me feel like a dream in this custom ball gown my favorite color purple 💜💜💜 #princestrust.”
