Keeping Faith with fashion

Singer Paloma Faith joined animal rights campaigners to urge women to give up fur as London Fashion Week kicked off.

In a video released by Peta (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), the musician introduces footage of bleeding and injured animals in cramped cages apparently bred for the fur trade. She invites the audience to "judge for themselves" and describes the industry as "bloody and violent". Yesterday she was chilling out at the Burberry Prorsum autumn/winter 2015 presentation in London. She was one of a galaxy of stars which included: Cara Delevingne, Kate Moss, Jourdan Dunn and Naomi Campbell (inset). For Campbell, the clothes barely had time to be returned to the coat hanger at the New York fashion Week, before she was once more unpacking her suitcase in London,.

She may be 44-years-old, age but she is still in uber-demand amongst the so-called super-model set.

This time out she was not posing for the paparazzi or strutting her stuff on the ramps, but simply taking time out to enjoy what was on view.

Whether on duty or not the style icon's dress sense and panache had the cameras clicking.
