2013 American Ballet Theatre Opening Night Spring Gala

2013 American Ballet Theatre Opening Night Spring Gala

Here are a few more looks from the American Ballet Theatre’s Opening Night Spring Gala, held at the Lincoln Center in New York City on Monday evening.

Coco Rocha: It’s not surprising to see Coco wearing a Zac Posen strapless gown on the red carpet; what is surprising is how unrecognisable she now is.

Uma Thurman: I expected something far more glamorous from Uma considering her amazing Met Gala look just last week. Her long-sleeved floor-length Fendi Fall 2013 dress may have been looked upon more favourably had she opted for a statement piece to detract from those creases.

Ashlee Simpson: I was surprised to see Ashlee Simpson at this event; however, she scrubbed up nicely wearing a backless lace high-neck Alice + Olivia gown with a feathered peplum, which she styled with a Jimmy Choo clutch, ELAHN jewelry and emerald Ocnarf Sairutsa ‘Nualah’earrings.

Alek Wek: The supermodel joins the ever-growing list of celebrities who have worn a look from the Christian Dior Spring 2013 collection. You may remember that Shu Qi wore this same charcoal-grey tuxedo dress featuring notched lapels and a pleated skirt with shimmering blue and pink panels, sans bustier, earlier this year.

Ashlee is my favourite of this group, with Lucy Liu my favourite overall at this event.

    Coco is recognizable to me but this is not one of my favorite looks from her. It washes her out a bit.
    Uma looks frumpy.
    Ashlee looks pretty good, it’s a little too busy but she’s the best here.
    I don’t like Alek’s look.

    Alek Wek!! Your LEGS!! omg. She’s always had extremely long and extremely thin legs, but never like this. there doesn’t appear to be ANY muscle tissue on them at all. it’s unbelievable! she used to look so much healthier! she even walked in the Victoria’s Secret fashion show! (granted, that was a decade ago, but still!)

      As you said, she always had very thin legs and teeny-tiny ankles, so I think saying that she has no muscle tissue (come on, really?) Or assume things about her health with zero knowledge is inappropriate.

    Ashlee did ballet before becoming a singer.
    I like her look the best here.

    I’m sorry, but Alek’s legs look ridiculous. The rags look of her tuxedo-jacket-“dress” doesn’t help either.

    Underwhelmed by all of them unfortunately.

    Omg, i love long thin legs, but Alek is way too much, i don’t wanna be disrespectful but it looks kind of unhealthy. Sorry if I ofend someone..

    Ashlee is def. the best of the group but can’t hold a candle to superb Lucy.

    Ashlee is my favourite of the bunch too. I can’t even look at Alek’s way too thin legs.. or should I’ve said bones?

    for me, Ashlee is by far the best-dressed of the event!

  11. Henrique May 14, 2013 at 20:48 #

    Oh, look, a strapless gown by Zac Posen. News.

    Alek looks amazing.

      AMEN, I am soooooooooooooooo past over a zac posen strapless gown. I think Alek looks great too!

    Just curious, what is unrecognizable about Coco Rocha, does she look so different than she did in the past?
    Thanks FC for all your hard work!

    • Catherine Kallon May 14, 2013 at 21:42 #

      She doesn’t look to same to me.

      • Rafael May 14, 2013 at 21:53 #

        In what sense? Like face surgery or something else?

        • Magdalena May 14, 2013 at 23:37 #

          Weight wise, maybe?
