Neither Campbell's spokeswoman nor the spokesman for the Crown Prosecution Service could confirm what sort of work the model would have to perform as part of her community service.

Nevertheless, Campbell still found time to walk at Dolce & Gabbana's pajama-inspired men's show Saturday. "We were on the phone the other day. She said was coming to Milan. So we asked her if she wanted to walk and she said yes," said Domenico Dolce. Campbell wore drawstring silk boxers and a swaying silk kimono both bearing a black-and-white tiger print. Despite Campbell's recent notoriety, actor Gerard Butler, who was ringside at the show, needed prompting from Anna Wintour as to who the model was. "Oh wow, really?" Butler said, apparently astonished. Meanwhile at Versace, Janet Jackson headlined a star-studded front row, which included Tom Ford, actors Rupert Everett, Dominic Cooper and Butler, and Houston Rockets guard Tracy McGrady.

On Thursday night Italian jeweler Damiani opened the doors of its fifth U.S. boutique in the Two Rodeo complex in Beverly Hills with the announcement of Sharon Stone as the face of its new international print ad campaign.

Vice president and chief designer Silvia Damiani welcomed Stone to the store, where several of the images were displayed on plasma screens throughout the polished wood and marble space.

Shot by Sølve Sundsbø on March 20 in Los Angeles, the color images feature Stone in poses inspired by iconic women such as Amelia Earhart.

"This campaign went way beyond fulfilling our every dream," said Stone, who collaborated closely with Damiani and Sundsbø. "We started with images of women who were winning and the great feeling you have when you've won." Stone is also featured wearing an old-fashioned swimming cap, a nod to the first woman who swam the English Channel, and in another shot wears a medal.
