Tonight, a MAJOR fashion moment will be taking place!
Naomi Campbell will be hitting that the Paris runway to walk for Versace for the first time in almost 15 years!
The supermodel's partnering for the Versace couture show was just announced because you know Naomi loves to keep people on their toes!
The undisputed queen of the catwalk said:
"I'm so happy to be here in Paris tonight to walk for Donatella [Versace]. We've known each other over 25 years now. Straight away I felt like part of the family, everybody was so warm and supportive. And of course there was Gianni. Apart from being one of the most inspirational and respected of designers of all time, he was like a brother to me…always there in good and bad times the memory will never fade. So as you can tell this is an emotional evening for me. It really is a great privilege to be here."
And it'll be one helluva privilege for those getting to watch the big moment go down!
Not only will this be her first time back with Versace after a whole lotta years, but it's also her first time back on the runway since being attacked in Paris.
And we're not the only ones who KNOW Naomi will own that runway like she owns them all! Donatella commented:
"I started this Atelier Versace collection by dreaming about the perfect aesthetic of the black-and-white era. I wanted to make it new, and pictured a sexy and sophisticated woman with a strong attitude. Only a true icon like Naomi Campbell could open this show."
No doubt it'll be an AH-Mazing moment!
Seriously, Naomi and Versace…this is what fashion dreams are made of, people!
