Despite being in the game for decades, fashion BFFs Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss are still two of the busiest supermodels working today. And while Kate is guest-starring in the Ab Fab film adaptation, Naomi recently celebrated 30 years of modeling with a sumo-sized coffee table book. Still, the two British beauties found time to meet in support of Fashion Targets Breat Cancer, a fundraising campaign initiated 20 years ago by Ralph Lauren.
Back in 1996, Kate and Naomi posed for Patrick Demarchelier to raise awareness for the cause.
Twenty years later, photographer Mario Testino was asked to shoot them both again. “Fashion Targets Breast Cancer has united us all – scientists, models, designers, mothers, photographers, retailers – as a powerful force against the disease,” Campbell said. “That’s two decades of incredible support for cutting-edge breast cancer research and it’s vital that we don’t stop now. With 2016’s campaign, I’m honored to stand with people across the UK, united in our belief that, together, we will win this fight.”
Since 1996, Fashion Targets Breast Cancer has helped raise over £16m (close to $23m) in aid of cancer research, with model muses such as Claudia Schiffer, Twiggy, and Yasmin Le Bon. To support the campaign, British shoppers can buy items from the Fashion Targets Breast Cancer collection, with a least 30% of the profits going towards breast cancer research.
“It’s great to be returning to support Fashion Targets Breast Cancer on this very special anniversary year,” Moss said. “Since its UK launch in 1996, when I first appeared in the campaign poster, Fashion Targets Breast Cancer has gone on to impact so many lives by funding vital research into this devastating disease.”
