Celebrities strut their stuff for Starship
Fashion show raises $10K for charityROB KIDD
A bevy of Auckland celebs raised more than $10,000 for Starship Children's Hospital last night by strutting their stuff.
The fashion show, held at Everybody’s on Fort Lane, attracted wolf-whistling women, a few well-known faces and some proud parents.
New Zealand Warriors wunderkind Shaun Johnson danced around in his undies, and an energetic group of kids also took to the catwalk.
The primary schoolers kept the audience’s attention on the real reason everyone had come out and they even ripped out a few impressive moves of their own while showing off the latest in trendy kidswear.
There were a range of striking garments on show from stores: 3 Wise Men, Strangely Normal, Augustine, Repertoire, KAF Kids, Browns, Nicholas Jermyn, Kid Republic and Mr Vintage.
However, the exuberant models often overshadowed the most flamboyant pieces.
Another Warriors player, Lewis Brown, got involved in the fun but said he was happy to leave the histrionics and partial nudity to his team mate Johnson.
Both league players agreed it was nice to get out of the spotlight that had been placed on them after a below-par season but they were divided when asked who had done the most practise in front of the mirror leading up to last night.
Bronwyn Turei and Joe Naufahu from Go Girls also hit the underground catwalk with plenty of enthusiasm too.
Naufahu said it was a privilege to be able to lend his name to such a worthwhile cause and was surprised at how nerve-wracking it was being in front of the camera in that environment.
Proceeds from the evening will go directly to the Starship Foundation, to enable the national children’s hospital to help more than 120,000 New Zealand children every year.
