Luxury couture label Fendi pulled out all the stops for their first Paris Fashion Week presentation under new creative director Kim Jones, calling in some big-name models to showcase the designs, albeit virtually.

The showcase, dubbed Fendi: Presentation - Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2021, took place at Palais Brongniart on January 27, 2021 in Paris, France. 

The runway show kicked off with Demi Moore opening the show in a black off-the-shoulder jacket and matching pants. Following the actress into the events socially distanced maze of glass and mirrors were famous fashionistas including Cara Delevingne, Naomi Campbell and Bella Hadid marking her first time appearing in a fashion show since March last year.

The event was also something of a family affair for many of the models as the legendary Kate Moss took to the runway following right behind her daughter Lila. 90s icon Christy Turlington strutted her stuff as did her nephew James. And Adwoa Aboah was able to share the excitement with her younger sister Kesewa.

It seems to be quite a trend at the moment for family members of supermodels to move into modelling themselves. Earlier in January, at Berlin Fashion Week, Leni Klum, Heidi's daughter could also be seen posing up a storm for a virtual presentation.
