Naomi Campbell will be honoured for her charity work, specifically concerning cancer research.

Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation for Cancer Research will be hosting the annual Angel Ball on 17 October at Cipriani Wall Street, where they also plan to honour artist Romero Britto, Vladislav Doronin who founded the Capital Group and Dr. Khalid Bin Jabor Al-Thani who founded the Quatar National Cancer Society.

Naomi’s work has already earned her an ELLE award in 2009 for outstanding charity work, mostly in relation to her fund-raising for the White Ribbon Alliance. She regularly teams up with designers and fashion labels, such as Luis Vuitton and Hermes to raise both awareness and funds for charities and is an ardent believer in using her celebrity for good. Although she had been ‘quietly helping charities [she] believed in for years’, her charity work came into the spotlight when Sarah Brown, Gordon Brown the then prime-minister’s wife, asked her to be an ambassador for the White Ribbon Alliance. She has also helped organise fashion charity campaigns such as Vivienne Westwood's Fashion Relief campaign.

The Angel Ball will be hosted by Samantha Harris, and feature a performance by Patti LaBelle. More information can be found here.
