Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss paid tribute Thursday to their recently deceased friend, designer Alexander McQueen, on the eve of London Fashion Week. Wearing print dresses from the designer’s Spring/Summer 2010 collection they took to the catwalk, along with McQueen’s muse, Annabelle Neilson, at the Fashion For Relief Haiti charity show at Somerset House in London. The three pals were joined on the catwalk by Geri Halliwell, Pixie Geldof, Denise Van Outen, model Erin O’Connor, and even America’s Got Talent judge Piers Morgan. At a celebrity auction later, Moss brushed away tears and had to be comforted by Neilson as Topshop boss Sir Philip Green bid £100,000 ( for the Alexander McQueen mini dress she wore on the catwalk. The show, which raised a reported £1 million to benefit Haiti, followed Wednesday’s announcement that the 40-year-old designer died from asphyxiation after hanging himself in a closet at his Mayfair, London apartment on February 11th. –Liz Corcoran

It’s sad he couldn’t deal w/his mom’s passing. My mom’s alive still (thank god) but I can totally understand how he must have felt..I hope he’s in peace now.
