Olivia Palermo In Roberto Cavalli – amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala

Olivia Palermo In Roberto Cavalli - amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala

I honestly didn’t recognise Olivia Palermo on the red carpet at the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala held at Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Cap d’Antibes, France this evening.

The spirit of Cavalli took over tonight as she became a sex kitten in one of the Italian designer’s classic animal print gowns.

I’m not sure what happened at the party last night, but a night with Cavalli has turned her into a new woman — a woman who wears a cut-out gown slashed near the hip-bone.

It is nice to see her experimenting, but I can’t see her rocking this kind of look too often.

Sergio Rossi sandals, a box clutch and loose braid completed her look.

    The dress? Great. On her? Not at all. Why? She doesn’t have the body and the mixture of sexiness + sophistication is needed for it.

    This dress doesn’t suit her at all.

    Tacky dress.

  7. Ariel May 24, 2013 at 15:10 #

    Awfully tasteless and cheap from head to toe!

    Styling is amazing, but this is SUCH a tacky dress. So cheesy and dated too.

    I’ve always wondered why she covered up so much so I’m glad she switched it up. It wasn’t necessarily a success but I appreciate the effort.

    Her styling is confusing though. I’m all for mixing prints but those shoes have nothing to do with the dress.

    Ay ay ay…girl so does not have the body for this dress. It looks sad on her, like she is trying to do a J.Lo circa-2001 cosplay. And those shoes with the missmatching print she thinks looks quirky and fashionable make it look more costume-y and silly. Terrible.

    In some weird way she makes a leopard dress look classy, and not many people can do that so kudos to her!

  12. Regina May 24, 2013 at 10:18 #

    No, she can’t pull this off. She hasn’t got the curves or the attitude.

    What is this!! This is exactly the type of tacky attention seeking kind of dress i can imagine Olivia laughing at. This is the polar opposite to every thing i love about Olivias style.

  14. Pablo May 24, 2013 at 07:38 #

    Love her hair, make-up and accessories, as always.
    But the dress feels like it’s just “not her”.

    • Rashmi May 24, 2013 at 10:39 #

      Neck up and neck down , it seems two different person! Want the old Olivia back.

  15. noo May 24, 2013 at 05:57 #

    no, just no!

  16. Pedro May 24, 2013 at 01:25 #

    She looks amazing!

    Sexy but very stylish, with the ‘it girl’ factor

    We’ve seen very sophisticated Cavalli gowns, and then we go back to the tacky cheap ones! This is one of them. She’s not selling it, it looks sooooo cheap, hate the cutout, the shoes. Love the hair makeup, but they’re for another kind of dress

  18. Marybeth May 24, 2013 at 00:19 #

    I’m not a fan of leopard print to begin with and I think the dress itself looks cheap.
    And yet I rather like this look. The styling is sharp and not overdone. Her hair and make-up are gorgeous.
    At the very least, I’ll give her high marks for stepping outside her comfort zone.

    oh not u Olivia, i’m already so tired of all these Roberto Cavalli gown….

  20. Faellie May 24, 2013 at 00:02 #

    Perhaps we haven’t seen Olivia dress like this before because we haven’t seen her in Cap d-Antibes before?

    This is a great interpretation by Olivia of the Riviera style.

    Im happy she did something new! Always covered up and kinda boring! This is sexy, and she makes it looks expensive and classy. Imagine this on Heidi klum (of course), Jlo, Bey, or a supermodel…I really like this!

  22. Emily May 23, 2013 at 23:43 #

    I happened to really like this look…am I the only one?

    • KatieKate May 24, 2013 at 03:05 #

      I like it a lot.

    • Quinn May 24, 2013 at 08:53 #

      I like it too. I saw her walking the red carpet and I didn’t think it was tacky at all. I thought she looked sexy and still very classy. I guess its her presence that makes it classy.

      • Jazz May 24, 2013 at 16:10 #

        I too thought that somebody more “diva” would’ve made this dress tacky. The typically sexy dress with an animal print looks very elegant and effortless on her!

  23. Yeliz May 23, 2013 at 23:42 #

    She doesn’t have the attitude to pull this off, but the gown is a tacky one to begin with. Not liking this look.

    • Christine May 24, 2013 at 01:13 #

      +1 Girlfriend is drinking the wrong Kool-aid. Not liking this one bit. She is losing her touch.

    • Noemi May 24, 2013 at 20:55 #

      I agree with you. I only like the hair.

  24. Jas May 23, 2013 at 23:32 #

    She sucked the life right out of the dress. She murdered the dress. I’m sad.

  25. Prudence May 23, 2013 at 23:32 #

    OMFG!!!!! Is this what happens when you spend a night on cavalli’s boat???? I just cant handle this, I love old Olivia so much better. This world can only handle so many divas
