D&G honour Naomi Campbell

Dolce&Gabbana throw a starry bash at Milan Fashion Week to celebrate supermodel Naomi Campbell's 25 years in fashion.
MILAN, ITALY - Italian designer duo Dolce&Gabbana marked supermodel Naomi Campbell's 25th anniversary in the fashion industry with a glitzy party in Milan.
The bash, which was held at the Dolce&Gabbana store following the brand's Milan fashion week show, got the model emotional, crying as she hugged the designers upon arrival.
D&G will also release a limited edition t-shirt collection with 14 different designs bearing iconic photographs of Campbell to honour her career.
The supermodel took time to sign some of the purchased t-shirts for fans - proceeds from the sales will go to the 'Fashion for Relief' charity.
Famous for her life both on and off the catwalk, 40-year-old Campbell began modelling in London at the age of 15.
One of the world's most famous models - and of the original "supers" - Campbell's career has seen her fronting international campaigns for top fashion houses and designers.
As well as gracing magazine and editorial covers she is also well known for her charity work.
Her fame also extends to more dubious achievements - having gained notoriety in the headlines for anger management issues which have, on several occasions, landed her in trouble with the law.
