Le Celebs in Couture: (Clockwise, from the top) Dita Von Teese, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Marion Cotillard and Eva Longoria--2015 amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala
Dita and Her French Boys: Dita Von Teese at the 2015 amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala, Cap d'Antibes, France (what is Kenneth Cole doing with his mouth and that bottle of water, inquiring minds want to know!!??)
In my previous post, I devoted the space to the Supermodels and what they wore to last night's 2015 amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Benefit Gala, now it's time to highlight the actresses--and a couple of singers. Now, I would be remiss not to mention the fact that a reported $30 million was raised to find a cure for AIDS and of note, the one-and-only Eva Longoria paid 540,000 euros ($600,000) for an Andy Warhol portrait of Miss Elizabeth Taylor. Bravo Eva! And now time for some of the Fashionably Fab Celebs at last night's Gala:
Dita Von Teese in Ulyana Sergeenko Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2015: I love this design from Russian socialite and fashion designer Ulyana Sergeenko. I don't know where Ms. Sergeenko is getting all the money to fund this enterprise (it costs a pretty penny darlings!) and frankly I may have a couple of guesses but I won't divulge them here. I just want to say that I liked this dress and I liked how Dita looked in this Ulyana Sergeenko Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2015 powder blue based silk satin dress with tea-cup shaped exaggerated peplum. It's also interesting how on the 5'11" Look Book model, the dress was tea length and on Miss Dita, it ended up being almost ankle-length.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in Elie Saab Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2015: Dubbed the "Most Beautiful Woman in the World", former "Miss World", actress and Bollywood icon, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan attended the 2015 amfAR Gala in this strapless ball gown from the Elie Saab Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2014 collection. The gown is EXQUISITE! It's completely hand-made, and features a nude colored silk organza base with a lilac sequined lace applique, and yes, kids, in case you are interested, it would probably set you back about $150,000 if you wanted to order it.
Eva Longoria in Georges Hobeika Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2015: Miss Eva Longoria donned a powder blue-colored gown from Lebanese fashion designer Georges Hobeika and his Georges Hobeika Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2015 collection. Now, notice that on the runway look, the dress was shown with a crinoline petticoat underneath (to emphasize the ball gown shape), but Eva (and her peeps) decided against that. What do you guys think? With--or without the under petticoat?
Marion Cotillard in Jean Paul Gaultier Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2015: French actress Marion Cotillard wore this apple green silk satin column gown from Jean Paul Gaultier Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2015 collection. This is a very simple gown that is made impeccably (it's Couture and all hand-made and would cost about $50,000 if you were to order it!). I thought she looked great.
Rita Ora in Marchesa Fall 2015: British singer Rita Ora wore this strawberry red-colors strapless gown designed by Marchesa from their Fall 2015 collection. When I first saw this photo I thought: "Is that Gwen Stefani??" and then I also thought "That's a lot of overdone dress for her!". What do you guys think? Overdone...Or just right?
Sienna Miller in Ralph Lauren Fall 2015: Sienna Miller wore this gold sequined/Lamé gown from Ralph Lauren Fall 2015. The dress is very "Dress 101" so with that, the fit has got to be PERFECT. And it is. If there's any critique, it's her deep red lipstick and makeup; she looks like she's had A LOT of Dirty Martinis from the neck up, but from the neck down, it's all good.
Mary J. Blige in Atelier Versace: Mary J. Blige wore this strapless ivory and sequined column gown from Atelier Versace. The gown fit and looked great on Mary J. I also loved the hair and makeup. What I don't like are the highlighter yellow neon nails. It's like, she wearing COUTURE yet her nails say "Low Rent". What do you guys think?
