Karolina Kurkova In Vionnet – amfAR New York Gala To Kick Off Fall 2012 Fashion Week

Karolina Kurkova joined the fashionable crowd in New York last night at the amfAR New York Gala which kick-started Fall 2012 Fashion Week.

The model wore a navy-blue Vionnet Pre-Fall 2012 dress.

This trend of ‘mullet’ dresses has reached insurmountable heights on the red carpet. Frankly, I don’t get it.

Karolina’s generally inoffensive dress was completely ruined by knee-high lace-up Sergio Rossi sandals.

She may have great legs, but this is not the way to show them.

A tousled updo and sapphire earrings complete the look.

    I really like the ‘mullet’ trend and I really like this look aside from the shoes.

    I love the dress but hate the shoes! the shoes is soo old fashioned! she has beautiful legs, it would be great if she was paired the dress with pumps..

    She’s hopeless on the red carpet. All. The. Time.

    I wish the mullet trend would just die. The shoes look super dated. Hate this entire thing.

    Those sandals make her look like a hooker from ancient Rome.

    I like the dress, but I think that she sandals kinda ruin the outfit, they’re a bit tacky with that dress.

    how on earth are they great legs lauren?

    • dee February 10, 2012 at 13:51 #

      I agree. She looks too skinny.

  12. WendyB February 10, 2012 at 06:18 #

    I love a mullet! About to wear one to a big event 😉

  13. AW February 10, 2012 at 03:28 #

    I definitely had those shoes in 2002 and I cringe every time I see a pic of myself in them. Oh honey no.

  14. EmmaWoodhouse February 10, 2012 at 01:53 #

    Hate the dress, hate the shoes. A mullet dress and gladiator sandals…this looks like it’s some sort of costume for a cheesy musical!

        I read somewhere that Karolina has surgery this week, so I am thinking that perhaps this outfit was selected and styled whilst she was in a post-surgery stupour. Because, seriously, that is the only explanation I can think of for why she considered this look acceptable enough to leave the house in. Deplorable.

    I actually like the shoes. I have never been a fan of mullet dresses but this look has got a Spartan warrior thing going on that I find somewhat appealing.

    • andrea February 10, 2012 at 19:16 #

      I agree. Somehow, for me those shoes work with the dress

  16. molly February 9, 2012 at 23:41 #

    I love this from the waist up. The color is stunning on her, her hair and makeup is great, and those earrings are to die for. I just really hope that this mullet skirt phase will be over soon because it is really starting to worry me:P

  17. bee7 February 9, 2012 at 23:32 #

    atleast she’s seemed happy here. she usually just looks like a wax figure.

  18. Rodrigo February 9, 2012 at 23:28 #

    Why don’t you like mullet dresses, FC??

    Yuk, this whole look is awful. How come she can wear amazing couture all the time and then choose this?

  20. Luis February 9, 2012 at 22:57 #

    KK eat something, all I can see are teeth!
