Naomi Campbell's Versace Runway Appearance Proves The Model Defies Time (PHOTOS)

If anyone knows how to start a high fashion party, it's Naomi Campbell. The seasoned runway vet kicked off Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week yesterday, opening the Versace Atelier Autumn/Winter 2013 fashion show in a slinky black number.

Uma Thurman, Emma Roberts, Zachary Quinto and Mena Suvari sat front row to watch as Naomi showed her fellow models how it's done. At 43 years old, the Brit has walked plenty of catwalks before, and she's now sharing her modeling wisdom as a mentor on "The Face."

Despite years of scandalous press headlines (and that one falling incident), we think Naomi's still got it. Seriously, if that's not the walk of an icon, we don't know what is.
