Cheers for Chris Brown? Yes, the Rihanna bashing pop star found himself back in the public spotlight last night at New York Fashion Week at Bryant Park – and received an unlikely rousing reception.
Always fashionable, Chris was dapper as he walked the runway in a tuxedo at the event to benefit CARE for Haiti, coordinated by supermodel Naomi Campbell.
Estelle, Kelly Osbourne, Karen Elson, Helena Christensen, Selita Ebanks, Malin Ackerman, Alan Cumming and Agyness Deyn also took to the runway.
Even Victoria Beckham donned a “Help Heal Haiti” t-shirt for the event.
“Events like this are definitely important, not necessarily for me,” Brown said, back stage.
“I think it’s important for Haiti because you get a chance to see artists and entertainers and fashion icons come together to do something nice for a good cause and it’s not so snobby.
“t’s very humbling and being able to come and help, it’s nice to see.”
Proceeds from ticket sales and from the auction of the outfits will go to CARE, which will help rebuild Haiti’s health care system.
