Halima Aden Will Star in amfAR and Carine Roitfeld's Virtual CR Runway Show

From covers to runways, Halima Aden has long been a fashion force to be reckoned with. And, her latest stint, staring in Carine Roitfeld's CR Runway show, is further proof of that.

On May 1, 2020, the 22-year-old hijabi model will join Kim Kardashian West, Hailey Bieber, Halima Aden, Winnie Harlow, and more, for a first-of-its-kind virtual fashion show, created in support of amfAR Against COVID-19: Fashion Unites, a global event to support the amfAR fund against COVID-19.

The second annual CR Runway will be hosted by Derek Blasberg, YouTube's head of fashion and beauty and will consist of a 30-minute, self-filmed fashion show that will see some of the biggest names in fashion, wear creations from their personal wardrobe.

The celebrity-filled fashion show will also feature messages of gratitude from designers and contributors to the many frontline workers who have risked their lives fighting COVID-19.

"As we face times of great uncertainty, our support for one another is more important than ever," Carine Roitfeld explains. Adding: "Embracing fashion as the creative expression through which to support the health and safety of our global communities, we hope this show can offer a small moment of hope, inspiration, and uplifting connection. A modest contribution as our world unites to collectively weather the storm of this pandemic together."

CR Runway with amfAR Against COVID-19 Fashion Unites will be available to stream on YouTube at 12 AM (GST) on May 1.
