DUBAI: Models Imaan Hammam, Nora Attal, and Mona Tougaard recently walked the runway for Italian luxury retailer LuisaViaRoma at Piazzale Michelangelo in Florence, Italy.
The show, titled “Runway Icons,” was a partnership with British Vogue and was attended by A-list stars including Leonardo DiCaprio, Julia Fox, Tina Kunakey, Tobey Maguire, and Charithra Chandran.
The models showcased more than 100 looks from over 50 designers including Amina Muaddi, Alexander McQueen, Christian Louboutin, Fendi, Ferragamo, Jimmy Choo, Maison Margiela, Ralph Lauren, Versace, Victoria Beckham, Blumarine, Michael Kors Collection, Mugler, and Chloe.
Hammam, who is of Dutch, Moroccan, and Egyptian descent, wore two outfits. The first was a black ballgown with a voluminous skirt, while the second was a zebra-printed figure-hugging dress.
Sharing images and videos from the show with her 1.6 million followers on Instagram, Hammam said: “Runway Icons. Thank you so much @luisaviaroma @britishvogue (and) @edward_enninful for such an amazing evening.”
British Moroccan model Attal wore a turquoise halter-neck dress with fringe and feather detailing while Tougaard, who is of Danish, Turkish, Somali, and Ethiopian descent, donned an embroidered sheer brown dress with a daring neckline.
To close off the show, Attal and Tougaard walked side by side as they graced the runway alongside the other models.
The show kicked off with a performance by Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli, and Russian model Natalia Vodianova opened the runway wearing a Giambattista Valli gown with voluminous white tulle layers.
The runway featured US supermodel Ashley Graham, who wore Dolce and Gabbana, and Eva Herzigova who stepped out in a midnight sequined Giorgio Armani gown.
The catwalk stars were also joined by Irina Shayk, Winnie Harlow, and Stella Maxwell.
Shayk donned a shimmering black gown with a halter neck from Tom Ford and paired it with black platform heels. Harlow showed off a silver mini dress with rhinestone embellishments, which she wore with thigh-high leather boots.
Maxwell wore a plaid off-shoulder top with matching mini skirt with a train.
