On May 1, another grand event took place on YouTube's vast expanses - the CR Runway charity online show organized by the former French Vogue editor-in-chief Carine Roitfeld with the amfAR foundation. The main goal of the event was to raise funds to combat the spread of Covid-19, as well as to support researchers and health workers who are heroes of our time in this situation.
"I think they did an amazing job, and I hope you are going to have a smile and maybe even some tears in your eyes," Carine Roitfeld said. "For me, it's very emotional. The nurses and the doctors working to protect us and to help us—my big heroes, my big icons are these people. These are the priorities."
The show was supervised by the head of the department of beauty and fashion YouTube Derek Blasberg. All participants of the event dressed in their most beloved and stunning outfits to walk the homemade runway. The show was attended by such celebrities of the fashion industry as Kim Kardashian West, Natasha Poly, Karlie Kloss, Hailey Bieber, Joan Smalls, Karen Elson, Miss Fame, Alessandra Ambrosio, Adriana Lima, Stella Maxwell, Ashley Graham, and many others.
The fashion designers were not sidelined too. Before the show, Pierpaolo Piccioli, Simon Porte Jacquemus, Virgil Abloh, Alexander Wang, Olivier Rousteing, Diane von Furstenberg and Maria Grazia Chiuri called the audience for staying at home and protecting the health.
