Carine Roitfeld arrived at the amfAR New York Gala to kick off Fall 2011 Fashion Week event in New York City last night.

The former editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris wore a very bold Givenchy Couture Spring 2011 gown.

This may not be the best picture of Carine, but it’s the best picture of her gown.

In the pictures where she’s smiling the flash had blasted all the detail away.

Here you can see the colour and the wing embroidered detail of her bold shoulder look.

My only complaint here is the gold necklace which you can see under the sheer panel of her gown. It kind of cheapens the look for me.
