London, May 26 : Kate Upton was one of the 20 models that took part in a completely monochrome fashion show staged at amfAR's Cinema Against AIDS event in Cannes.
The runway show was staged at the Hotel du Cap, and was styled by ex-French Vogue editor-in-chief Carine Roitfeld.
The Sports Illustrated cover girl, 19, joined established models including Karolina Kurkova, Cara Delevingne, Jourdan Dunn, Lily Donaldson and Lindsay Wixson.
The starlets walked the catwalk dressed in all-black designer clothing.
Unfortunately, Upton's dress paled in comparison to many of the other designs that were modeled.
The dress hugged her body in some place but not others, appearing as though it was incorrectly fitted to the model's figure.
Designer labels that featured in the show included Alexander Wang, Balenciaga, Roberto Cavalli, Louis Vuitton, Fendi, Chanel, Christian Dior, Christopher Kane, Emilio Pucci, Giorgio Armani, Givenchy and Versace, the Daily Mail reported.
Other models included Victoria's Secret's Toni Garrn and French beauty Aymeline Valade, who was a runway fixture during the recent fall/winter 2012 Fashion Week season.
Brazilian stunner Ana Beatriz Barros, who has also modeled for Victoria's Secret, also took part as did fellow Brazilian beauty Isabeli Fontana.
The clothing, which spanned from red carpet gowns to bath robes, were chosen by Roitfeld based around "her idea of the perfect black wardrobe," according to WWD.
It was the first-ever fashion show to be staged at the prestigious annual fundraiser, which is considered to be the Cannes International Film festival's hottest ticket. (ANI)
