After walking down the catwalk wearing one of the very last designs from Alexander McQueen, emotional Kate Moss found herself in tears after taking part in Naomi Campbell's Fashion For Relief event.

The supermodel, who was devastated by the untimely death of her close friend, had proudly showcased one of the designer's dresses from his spring/summer range with Naomi and Annabelle Neilson.

But it was after the fashion show, when she watched the same design go under the hammer at auction to raise money for Haiti, that the 36-year-old was brought to tears.

Thankfully her 'uncle Phil' – Topshop owner Sir Philip Green – was there to offer support.

Not only did he offer comfort to the mum-of-one, with whom he has a close working relationship; the benevolent entrepreneur placed the incredible final bid of £100,000.

His generous offer more than helped contribute to the £1.4 million raised by Thursday's event.

And that total is set to rise further thanks to an ongoing online auction.

Among the celebrities taking part in Naomi's star-studded event were Geri Halliwell, Nicola Roberts, Kimberley Walsh, Dame Shirley Bassey and prime minister's wife Sarah Brown.
