Movie stars, hit singers, British icons and famous supermodels rubbed shoulders on the catwalk on Saturday for a spectacular L’Oreal runway show.

Paris Fashion Week played host to a celebrity spectacular on Saturday as stars including Amber Heard, Helen Mirren, Cheryl Cole and Aishwarya Rai took to the runway for L’Oreal.

Watched by veteran Super Naomi Campbell, the starry line-up strutted down the runway at the historic Monnaie de Paris building in outfits borrowed from 10 leading fashion houses.

Highlights included a barefoot Helen Mirren sashaying down the runway, Eva Longoria being joined by her one-year-old son Santiago and the debut appearance of Amber Heard, the brand’s new global spokesperson.

“On this occasion, we are proud to unite our global family of inspirational women in celebration of beauty excellence and inclusivity,” said Delphine Viguier-Hovasse, L’Oreal Paris’ Global Brand Ambassador.
