On the red carpet, models wore a variety of styles--from fabulous and very glam Haute Couture ball gowns, slinky and sexy slit-up-to-there columns, mini dresses and even a jumpsuit. Let's take a look at some of the best...
Chanel Iman in Zuhair Murad Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2015: Chanel Iman wore a glorious ball gown from the Zuhair Murad Haute Couture Spring 2015 collection. The silk tulle nude-based gown featured a very plunging neckline, long sleeves and intricately hand sewn sequined appliques. I think Chanel looked sooooo BEAUTIFUL! This is a $100,000+ costing gown and she wore it wonderfully...and looked even better than the runway model.
Toni Garrn in Elie Saab RTW Spring 2015: German model--and former main squeeze of Leonardo DiCaprio--Toni Garrn, was right on trend with this bold printed high-lo dress from Elie Saab Spring 2015 RTW. I LOVE this dress and I also love how she wore it--from the nude heels to the slicked hair.
Adriana Lima in Alexandre Vauthier Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2015: Brazilian bombshell supermodel Adriana Lima wore this side cut-out--and side front slit--sequined gown from French couturier Alexandre Vauthier Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2015 collection. This is definitely one of those gowns that basically either a Supermodel or a Miss Universe WINNER--can only wear.
Doutzen Kroes in Maison Margiela Couture Spring/Summer 2015 by John Galliano: I thought Dutch model Doutzen Kroes looked quite old-school Alta Moda in this tunic shaped lipstick red halter gown from Maison Margiela Couture Spring/Summer 2015. This gown was from John Galliano's debut collection for the famed design house.
Daniela Braga in Balmain Pre-Fall 2015: Brazilian model Daniela Braga looked fabulous in this black wide legged jumpsuit from Balmain Pre-Fall 2015 collection. I thought it was a super modern way of opting out of the traditional gown or super sexy slit-up-to-there dress.
Soo Joo Park in Chanel Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2013: bleach blond model Soo Joo Park walked the red carpet at the 2015 amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala in this gunmetal colored sequined slightly A-line shift dress from Chanel Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2013 collection. Notice that on the runway, the dress was worn with a boucle jacket over it, and a longer under-skirt plus a hip-slung wide belt. She was smart to leave all that stuff back in the Chanel Haute Couture showroom.
Gigi Hadid in Tom Ford: Gigi Hadid wore an ivory crepe column style gown from Tom Ford. The dress featured a geometric cut-out neckline, long sleeves and high side front slit. I think the gown is super sexy but I just have a little problem with what's happening in the cleavage area and how the neckline of the dress is not sitting straight. It's obvious that there's some MAJOR double-stick tape happening to prevent any wardrobe malfunction.
Karlie Kloss in Tom Ford: Karlie Kloss also wore Tom Ford at last night's amfAR Gala. Karlie's gown was a silver sequined "tank"-style dress with plunging sides. I thought she looked both retro (kind of a 60's vibe) but still modern.
Joan Smalls in Givenchy: Model Joan Smalls wore a black knit dress from Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci. The dress had a plunging neckline (of course) and open shoulders. I loved the vamp-y styling including her slicked back hair and THAT lipstick!
Karolina Kurkova in Alexis Mabille Couture: Czech Supermodel Karolina Kurkova wore a blush pink silk mikado gown from French couturier Alexis Mabille. The strapless gown featured a full gathered flared ballgown skirt, draped bustier and bow/knot tie at the Empire section. I think Karolina looked quite elegant and Grace Kelly old school. It was a nice change to see a supermodel do "Classy" with a capital C.
Irina Shayk in Atelier Versace: Irina Shayk wore this jade green colored super sexy gown from Atelier Versace. Once again, this is the type of style that only a Supermodel--or Beauty Queen--can get away with. And I think Irina does get away with it. For sure!
Jourdan Dunn in Vera Wang: UK model Jourdan Dunn looked lovely in a blue draped silk tulle gown from Vera Wang. I loved her loose--almost effortless hairstyle to counterbalance such an intricately gathered structured mermaid-shaped gown.
The Saint Laurent Girls: (Left to Right) Natasha Poly, Lara Stone and Lily Donaldson in Custom Saint Laurent--Who looked better? I say Natasha...what do you guys think?
Kendall Jenner in Custom Calvin Klein Collection: Finally, there was Reality TV Star and UBER model Kendall Jenner. She attended last night's Gala in a mauve colored halter gown from Calvin Klein Collection. This was a custom design, made especially for Kendall and the event. I think she looked great! I love the 70's "Charlie's Angels" vibe of the style and the train gave an added sense of drama. Oh and yes, Kendall's wonderfully toned arms and tummy can definitely pull this off!
