The centrepiece of the evening was the Numero Lady Charity Auction.
First, to introduce Numero Homme, the men took the stage, in the form of nine celebrities including Nattakorn Choonhavan, Anandadvip Jayankura, Jarudej Boonyasit (who appears on the cover of the first Thai-edition of Numero Homme), Poom Techaruvichit, Nuttapol Jurangkool, Akanit Wichiencharoen, Gunn Ratanaporn, Soranut Masayavanich and Lertkit Kitcharoenwong.
This was followed by a fashion show featuring the fairer sex modelling contemporary collections from 13 leading Thai designers under the theme "Everyday in Paris".
The show was presented by honorary models including ML Napas Rajani (Chai Gold Label), Natprapa Choonhavan (Sretsis), Kitivichaya Vajarodaya (Kloset), Samsara Eamegdool (Curated), Napasra Thaiwadh (Soda), Pawadee Isarankura Na Ayudhaya (Theatre), Patamarat Bahiddha-Nukara (Issue), Natarnin Khunathanard (Real), Anongnart Amnueypol (Vickteerut), Karuna Vatchanaphukka (Senada), Sarinra Tantayanon (Asava), Vudhivadi Vudhijaya (Greyhound) and Naruedi Aeksukitkul (Disaya).
The highlight of the auction was without a doubt the glittering sequinned black evening gown with sheer shoulders and sleeves and plunging back from Real worn by Natarnin Khunathanard. The stakes were gradually raised until Ananya Adirek won the gown with a bid of 83,000 baht.
There was also an auction of art pieces provided by ML Chiratorn Chirapravati and Somnuek Klangnok, or Kru Pan.
The evening's auction raised a total of 491,895 baht, with the proceeds going to support the Thai Red Cross Eye Bank and the National Association of the Deaf in Thailand.
