Julien Macdonald kept press (such as myself) and celebs (Kimberley Stewart and Brit It-Girl Peaches Geldof) waiting for over an hour and a half on Tuesday night as his Autumn/Winter fashion show. When Naomi Campbell glided down the catwalk for the first time in two years to rapturous applause, I have to admit it was worth the wait. Backstage I chatted to her as she was slipping out of the little gold sequined number she wore on the runway. “It was fun to be part of Julien’s show,” she said as I stared disbelievingly at her flawless complexion and perfectly toned limbs. “The music is great, the vibe is great and it’s fun backstage.” I ask the model what she finds so special about London as she slips back into her faded blue skinny jeans. “London is great, you see things here that you would never see anywhere else.” As she air kisses her way out, I am left thinking much the same. — Monique Jessen
