Fashion Rocks was held in Brazil for the first time this year.
The event featured four international fashion designers, including Marc Jacobs, Versace, Givenchy, and Calvin Klein with live performances from Mariah Carey, Estelle, P.Diddy, Grace Jones and Ciara.
The line-up also featured four national fashion designers – Lenny, Andre Lima, Alexandre Herchcovith and Lino Vilaventura paired with four performers including Lulu Santos, Daniela Mercury, Wanessa and Ja Rule.
Donatella Versace wore 2 gowns from her recent Spring 2010 collection.
The first was a lilac strapless gown which she had modified by removing the white details on the bodice, and lowering the central split.
This colour is fabulous on her.
The second was an asymmetrical angelic white gown with silver triangle shaped embellishments.
Again the split was lowered and the cut-out detail on the side of the gown on the runway, doesn’t appear on Donatella’s gown.
This was my favourite gown of the two.
Fernanda Lima hosted the show looking amazing wearing the same red Versace Fall 2009 gown Blake Lively wore to the Emmy’s.
She looked equally, if not more spectacular in this jaw-dropping gown.
Isabeli Fontana wowed wearing a canary yellow Atelier Versace Fall 2007 halter gown.
I thought the only model who could provide this kind of jaw-dropping moment was Gisele Bundchen.
After months of quite boring black ensembles, Estelle was back to her colourful best wearing a very interesting futuristic Manish Arora Fall 2009 dress of yellow, orange, red maroon and black.
The textured dress was paired with a grey Fendi clutch and Christian Louboutin Calypso heels as worn by Blake Lively last week.
Fernanda Motta and Alessandra Ambrosio arrived at this event together.
Fernanda wore a black satin Versace Fall 2009 wrap dress, which is the same dress we saw on Janet Jackson recently, whilst Alessandra showed off her enviable figure in a taupe halter neck gown embellished with precious stones.
Ciara confirmed via her twitter page that she is going to be Riccardo Tisci new muse for Givenchy, so it was no surprised to see her decked out in a Givenchy Spring 2009 ensemble.
Her embellished cold-shoulder top was paired with a leather pocketed mini skirt to show-off those toned legs.
