Naomi Campbell was in familiar company as she attended the Vogue World Paris after-party in the French capital on Sunday evening. 

The British supermodel, 54, joined a host of special guests as the annual event, celebrating 100-years of fashion and sport in the iconic city, got underway. 

And as the celebrations continued into the early hours she was accompanied by film producer Mohammed Al Turki, with whom she has developed a ‘close friendship’ over recent months. 

The pair were side-by-side as they made their way into the event’s star-studded after-party , where they were joined by guests including tennis ace Serena Williams, actress Eva Longoria and presenter Alexa Chung. 

On a night dedicated to the best of French couture, Naomi looked typically stylish in a midnight blue evening dress with a distinctive bow.

The catwalk veteran completed the look with matching peep-toe heels, while heavily tinted sunglasses – worn in spite of the late hour – shielded her eyes as she made her entrance. 

The fashion show featured performances by Bad Bunny and Aya Nakumura, while Katy Perry made a surprise appearance on the runway. 

Meanwhile Cara Delevingne provided commentary on the live stream for those who were unable to get tickets as she talked the viewers through each era of fashion. 

The venue for the show was the famed Place Vendôme – a square which is a renowned location for fine jewellery and the inspiration for a Catherine Deneuve film.

The sports included cycling, gymnastics, tennis, fencing, and break dancing, among others and the fashion will shine a spotlight on both modern and historic designers. 

Last year the event was hosted in London, while the year before the Big Apple was the backdrop for the high fashion extravaganza. 

Speaking on the event, Vogue’s global editorial director and Condé Nast chief content officer Anna Wintour, said: ‘If Vogue World: New York was a street fair, and Vogue World: London was a glamorous night at the theatre…

‘Supporting arts and cultural organisations in London – Paris will be a kind of opening ceremony; one that celebrates 100 years of fashion and sport, as well as this extraordinary city.’
