Naomi Campbell showed off her supermodel status and incredibly toned legs as she made her first Fashion Week appearance of the year. The 44-year-old stormed the runway for Jean Paul Gaultier's haute couture show in Paris, giving fans a glimpse of her enviable figure in a daring floral minidress, wearing her glossy black locks down in a sleek straight style.

The British beauty later returned to close the show joined by Jean Paul himself. The pair were all smiles as they walked the catwalk hand-in-hand, laughing and exchanging air kisses as front rowers including Carla Bruni, Catherine Deneuve, Dita Von Teese and Eurovision winner Conchita Wurst cheered them on. It's already proving to be an exciting Fashion Week season for Naomi, who revealed on Thursday afternoon that she will be opening London Fashion Week. The fashion icon will be once again hosting a catwalk show as part of her Fashion For Relief charity, as well as an auction to help raise money to combat the Ebola crisis.

"I'm thrilled to return to London to open London Fashion Week for this very special cause to my heart," said Naomi in a statement. "The Fashion For Relief show is an incredible event and this year we hope to raise more money than ever before. Raising awareness for Ebola and educating about its prevention is crucial to help prevent the spread of this deadly disease." One of the original six 'Supermodels' of the nineties, Naomi recently revealed that she feels the modelling industry has been dramatically changed thanks to social media, opening doors for emerging models dubbed 'Instagirls'. "It's amazing," she said on The Meredith Viera show. "I mean, good luck to them. I just feel like my generation of women, like Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington, Claudia [Schiffer], we had to earn our stripes and take our stepping stones to get to where we have gotten, to accomplish what we have achieved to this date." "I kind of feel like, 'My God, we've worked so hard and we are still working at it, then it just comes like that for them.' But I sometimes believe 'easy come, easy go'. So I am actually grateful for the way I had my career. I wouldn't want it any other way. So that's for them, this is me."
