Rihanna, Naomi Campbell and Iman wearing collared necklaces

ICONIC three generations of beauties – Rihanna, 26, Naomi Campbell, 44, and Iman, 59 – have posed together for the first time, and the resulting pictures in September’s W Magazine are unsurprisingly beautiful.

The trio came together for a story celebrating fashion brand Balmain’s 28-year-old creative director, Olivier Rousteing, who says the three embody his style. The magazine wrote: “These women are inspiring to so many different people,’ he said. ‘Bringing them together represents the concept I’m working toward.”

With Rihanna as the cover of the magazine, the inside picture spread, all taken by photographer Emma Summerton, the supermodels and the pop star are wearing pieces from Balmain’s Fall 2014 collection. In one shot, all three are wearing large sweaters with differing black and white skirts as Mr Rousteing sits on the floor. In another, Rihanna and Ms Campbell are wearing provocative tops made of brightly colored rope, while Iman is in a more modest zebra print jacket. All three wear stacked collared necklaces.

Where could you find the Egyptian collar nowadays if not at an Egyptian indulgence and intemperance journey to the Middle East right in the heart of London at Chelsea. The exquisite soiree exclusively hosted by model/fashion designer Danish Wakeel encapsulated a rich, ostentatious and a grandiose culture of Egypt and the Middle East for the café society, the lipstick brigade and the cocktail chatters of London.

Egyptian music is a rich mixture of indigenous Egyptian, African and Western influences hence an enchanting night of Egyptian live entertainment, Cleopatra belly dance, street food, and a fusion of Arabic music.

The elated guests comprising of Makeup artists, hairstylists,fashion photographers, stylists, agents, models and designers took this miraculous opportunity to network and explore new friends within the London’s creative industry. The networking event was exclusively put together by the London Model Academy. The young and ambitious designer is currently busy working on his ‘Egyptian Harem’ collection scheduled to be showcased on the opening day of London fashion week SS 2015.
