From Beatles Monthly Book N°117, January 1986:

Paul, Linda, Ringo, Barbara and George’s wife Olivia were all involved in the Fashion Aid event on November 5 at the Royal Albert Hall, London – yet another charity fundraiser in aid of the African Famine Relief Fund and the Band Aid trust. Ringo, Barbara and Olivia actually attended the gala evening, Barbara modelling clothes on the stage. Paul and Linda couldn’t be there but were very supportive of the project and sent a voice tape which was played over the PA. Kevin Godley and Lol Creme filmed the proceedings which will be shown first on television and then released on home video.

Paul and Linda sang a short improvised message, named “Fashion Aid”.
