Model Irina Shayk has been called out for wearing a fake black eye at London Fashion Week.

The 37-year-old took to the catwalk on Friday (15 September) during the renowned London fashion event as she walked for the Mowalola SS24 show.

During the show, however, multiple models can be seen walking up and down the runway with what is believed to be fake 'bruised' eyes, 'bleeding' noses and 'swollen' lips.

Shayk was papped in a handful of looks on the evening including a 3/4 sleeve black 2Pac t-shirt paired with some electric blue thigh-high boots.

Another outfit saw Shayk donning a floor-length metallic gray number complete with a halter neckline and capital red lettering across the chest area.

However, paired with both those outfits, Shayk also wore a fake shiner on her left eye.

Aisha Ali-Khan, human rights campaigner and activist, has since taken to X, formerly Twitter, to share her responses to the catwalk makeup.

She penned: "Giving supermodels a fake black eye is absolutely reprehensible. What an insult to victims of domestic violence seeing injuries like this glamorised for public consumption."

The activist called the situation 'reprehensible'.

Ali-Khan concluded: "@MOWALOLA_ should have known better, & Irina Shayk should have just said NO!"

Mowalola tweeted a series of four looks from the show, one of which included Shayk's dress number and captioned the post: "We run from pain but we need pain to survive."

Mowalola also reposted a video to her Instagram story - from creator - which seems to break down the meaning behind her fashion show, which supports Mowalola's response.

Directly responding to the tweet, Ali-Khan penned: "This is Mowalola’s explanation for why she used ‘bruised’ models.

"Nobody, I repeat, NOBODY, needs pain to survive. We need love, care, compassion empathy to survive, and thus thrive."

UNILAD has reached out to both Mowalola and Irina Shayk's reps for comment.

Aisha Ali-Khan called out the brand for its 'explanation' for why they used ‘bruised’ models.

Many fellow stars were spotted at London Fashion Week including the likes of Shayk's ex Kanye West and his 'wife' Bianca Censori.

The celebrity couple sparked controversy a few weeks back when they were spotted in - let's just say - a compromising position during their trip to the beautiful Italian city of Venice.

The pair hired out a vessel but clearly had a lot more in mind than just soaking in the sights and enjoying the ambiance of the romantic canals.

In the photos, West can be seen with exposed bare buttocks, while 28-year-old Censori knelt in front of him nestling her head in his lap.

Subsequently, the 'Gold Digger' rapper and his wife have since been banned from the boat company, Venezia Turismo Motoscafi, for the rest of their lives.
