Erin O’Connor is all heart

Erin O'Connor is fronting a new campaign to promote Tunnel of Love, a glamorous new fashion-filled fundraising event from The British Heart Foundation to support it's "Mending Broken Hearts" appeal.

The supermodel has been snapped by photographer Robin Derrick wearing a crimson, heart-shaped bespoke creation from London-based milliner Stephen Jones.

The Tunnel of Love is the perfect event for generous fashionistas and charitable lovers of style as there will be a couture fashion auction from designers such as Chanel, Mulberry and William Tempest. The auction will also include accessories, iconic photographs and works from artists like Rob Ryan.

Hosted by Laura Bailey and Mark Quinn, the Tunnel of Love’s main aim is to “mend broken hearts”, and the British Heart Foundation aims to spend £50 million to fund groundbreaking research in as little as 10 years.

The Tunnel of Love will take place on 17 May 2011. Tickets are now on sale for £75 at bhf.org.uk.
