With all these capes on the red carpet at the 2012 New York City Ballet Fall Gala, held at the David H. Koch Theater, Lincoln Center, yesterday evening, you would think this event was hosted by André Leon Talley, not Valentino.

Karolina Kurkova worked a Valentino red Couture gown from the Fall 2012 collection as only a supermodel could, but I can’t help but think this gown should’ve gone to Sarah Jessica Parker, as the petite actress loves a big dramatic red gown, but then she has done this look before.

The supermodel styled her look with silver pumps and emerald drop earrings.

With her fresh-faced makeup, she completed her look with a centre-parted hairstyle swept off her shoulders.
