Naomi Campbell back on the runway after break-up

Naomi Campbell defied her 43 years on the Versace runway, making a return to the brand after 15 years following her break-up from longtime boyfriend Vladimir Doronin.

The 43-year-old supermodel and billionaire businessman are believed to have recently ended their five-year romance.

Vladimir was seen with cuddling up to Chinese model Luo Zilin as the pair vacationed in Ibiza earlier this month.

The photos were said to be a slap in the face to Naomi, who mentored Luo on her reality television show The Face.

The catwalk queen has been throwing herself into her work ever since.

This weekend Naomi proved she's nowhere near retiring as she modeled for designer Donatella Versace at Paris Fashion Week.

The English supermodel opened the show wearing a sheer basque that showed off her flawless figure.

She focussed on work and declined to discuss her romantic life.

"I'm so happy to be here in Paris tonight to walk for Donatella. We've known each other over 25 years now. Straight away I felt like part of the family, everybody was so warm and supportive," Naomi told reporters at the event.

Naomi and Vladimir were last spotted together in Miami in April.

Luo has since been dropped from her New York modelling agency after her relationship with Vlad went public, with some claiming Naomi had something to do with it.

A spokesperson for MIX Model Management NYC would only say that Luo displayed "unprofessional conduct".

A source close to Naomi echoed claims her primary concern right now is her career.

"Naomi is just concentrating on work," the insider told MailOnline earlier this month. "She doesn't want to be drawn into this. It seems to be the case that Vlad is just trying to get an unfair dig in at Naomi - he can't seem to leave her alone."
