Nigel Barker Takes Steps for Philanthropy

September 1st, 2010 // Leave a Comment

We all know that Nigel Barker can take a fierce photograph or look fierce when photographed, but he can even recognize ferocity in philanthropy.

Hell yea, that is a whole lot of the word FIERCE.

At this September’s fashion week, Nigel will support Nine West Runway Relief: Steps for a Cause, where models will wear limited-edition Nine
West boots fitted with pedometers. Each step taken will equal a donation
to Fashion Targets Breast Cancer
.

Nine West’s Runway Relief Program kicked off in the Meatpacking District on August 31st in New York
City. Nigel along with Jessica White, Coco Rocha and Michelle Alves high kicked, flaunted and stomped those stems on cobblestone.

“I think it’s important that models and the fashion industry do give
back, and they’re known for giving back, but this is a great, really
fantastic cause and it’s also backed by the CFDA,” Nigel tells OK!.
“The fashion industry is known for being fluffy and you know,
frivolous, all those things, and so often it is, but also so often it
isn’t.”

Nigel was worried about Tyra Banks tearing his eyes out if he revealed details about the new season of America’s Next Top Model, but if I were him, I would be more worried about being stomped on by fluffy models.
