Celebs strut for Starship
A bevy of Auckland celebs raised more than $10,000 for Starship 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.
As well as New Zealand Warriors wunderkind Shaun Johnson dancing around in his undies, were an energetic group of kids.
Don’t worry, it wasn't not as dodgy as it sounds.
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 kids’ wear.
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 practice 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.
