Leave it to Naomi Campbell to make sitting in the pouring rain worth it, all with her iconic walk. At the Saint Laurent Spring/Summer 2020 runway show, the supermodel was a welcome surprise in the final stretch of fashion month—but yet, still just the first day of Paris Fashion Week.

Here, see all of the backstage shenanigans that led up to the show’s sparkling finale.
