    The world's biggest names in modelling strutted their stuff on the catwalk to show off designs by big names including Armani, Prada and Versace.

    Rock and pop stars gave live performances from a stage behind the catwalk for the sell-out show organised to raise cash for The Prince's Trust.

    Prince Charles was joined by his partner Camilla Parker Bowles for the show, which was presented by British actress Liz Hurley and US comic Denis Leary at London's Albert Hall.

    Second chance

    Singers included Beyonce Knowles, Sheryl Crow and Robbie Williams who performed at the event called Fashion Rocks.

    "Fashion Rocks is a hugely exciting fundraising event for The Prince's Trust," Sir Tom Shebbeare, the charity's chief executive said.

    "Music and fashion is a powerful combination and the fantastic support we have received from ... icons from the world of showbusiness will help us to give even more young people a second chance in life."
