9th Annual Spring Dinner Dance New Year’s In April: A Fool’s Fete

Many more supermodels joined Coco Rocha and Crystal Renn on the red carpet for the 9th Annual Spring Dinner Dance New Year’s In April: A Fool’s Fete, hosted by New Yorkers for Children, which raised over $580,000 last night.

Doutzen Kroes: The model was surprisingly one of the few who opted out of wearing a gown to don a Rachel Roy ensemble. A purple keyhole top with an open back and a black leather cummerbund was teamed with super long flared pants. An Alaia perforated leather clutch completed her look.

Jessica White: The Maybelline model did an ‘Angelina’ by making sure we all got a look at her leg via the split in her Diane von Furstenberg sequin wrap gown. She teamed her raspberry gown with a Diane von Furstenberg ‘Tonda’ crystal clutch and cream peep-toes.

Selita Ebanks: I’m really not feeling Selita in this silver embellished gown. It looks like something Mariah Carey would wear. Basically it feels dated. The red clutch does nothing to improve this look.

Erin Heatherton: The model is the third person to wear a Carolina Herrera dress in the last 24 hours following Emily Blunt and Ashley Judd. Her Spring 2012 canary yellow, greige and taupe dot print silk chiffon gown with silver and black beaded embroidery was simply styled with black strappy sandals. It’s so good to see a Victoria’s Secret model wearing something other than a bandage dress.

    I could never understand the big fuss over Erin Heathton but after seeing this photo, wow. Just wow.

    Doutzen is my favorite. As for the leg thing, it is going to be labeled ‘the Angelina’ from now on :D
    Angy really made history that Oscar night !

    I like Erin the best.

    Hard not to LOL at your comment about the VS models and the bandage dresses, sooooooooooooo true! Erin looks the best by the way, really gorgeous!

    Doutzen’s look is unflattering and unwieldy imo. I really dislike it.
    Jessica looks tacky and try-hard–especially because she’s “pulling an Angie” (LOL)
    Selita’s dress is my favorite, as I think it’s elegant but fun, but her tan/makeup/hair are so bad they’re hard to look past.
    As for Erin, it is nice to see a VS model in something other than a bandage dress, but this dress is quite ugly in my opinion.

    I don’t care for any of them; contrived, overwrought,dated,fugly, in that order.

    Erin is a BDOTW-worthy. She’s magnificent.

    None of them are working for me. Douzen gets props for thinking outside the box, Selita’s gown is so meh, and Jessica’s DVF sequined wrap dress needs to be retired, though it looks delicious with her skintone.

    I think Victoria’s Secret models are contractually obliged to wear Herve Leger dresses. By this point it’s not a choice.

    FC, I’m surprised you didn’t mention anything about Jessica White’s white shoes. ;P

    • Fashion Critic April 12, 2012 at 07:37 #

      I did

  11. Dhppy April 12, 2012 at 22:04 #

    I think Doutzen is one of the most beautiful women ever, but even she can’t sell that ensemble.

    Jessica White is my favorite. The color is so vibrant and beautiful on her. I could do with the Angelina and the shoes.
