amfAR New York Gala 1

Many more stars joined Sarah Jessica Parker and Alexa Chung on the red carpet last night for the amfAR New York Gala to kick off Fall 2013 Fashion Week.

Heidi Klum: No surprises that the Project Runway host wore a Michael Kors gown. Her black jersey halter gown with crystal embroidery was styled with a white-and-black diamond necklace and a matching ring by her favourite jeweller, Lorraine Schwartz. Sleek locks and kohl-rimmed eyes completed her look.

Crystal Renn: The model was wearing… you guessed it – Zac Posen. Her bold red gown with a floor-sweeping skirt was styled with Lorraine Schwartz ruby earrings and a retro updo. As predictable as this look is, for Crystal it never gets old.

Poppy Delevingne: You also won’t be shocked to discover the British model wearing Chanel. Her floaty grey chiffon dress with crystal beading was complemented with a Chanel pyramid Swarovski embellished bag.

Doutzen Kroes: The model kept the styling of her J. Mendel bi-colour coral silk chiffon strapless gown to a minimum. My problem with this look is the fit on the bodice.

Katharine McPhee: The ‘Smash’ actress kept it simple and chic in a white Theyskens Theory dress with black accessories.

Patricia Clarkson: The actress caught my attention wearing an electric-blue Michael Kors strapless gown with a gold python belt. That accent was complemented with a Michael Kors gold python envelope clutch, a gold cuff from the designer’s Resort 2013 collection, and Harry Winston earrings.

Giovanna Battaglia: The editor usually wears Dolce & Gabbana, but on this occasion she dazzled in a gold lamé Michael Kors Resort 2013 gown with a crystal-embellished bodice.

Karlie Kloss: The model wore a white paillette shift dress and silver python Mikaela sandals from the Michael Kors Spring 2013 collection with a silver MICHAEL Michael Kors ‘Tilda’ clutch.

Claire Courtin Clarins, Virginie Courtin Clarins and Lily Kwong: The socialites all picked pieces from the Louis Vuitton Spring 2013 collection. Claire settled for black sequins; Virginie donned her second chequered look, while Lily wore a brown sleeveless column dress with a white print, which she complemented with white accessories.

Those white pumps are the pointiest shoes I have ever seen.
