Here is a round up of all the models who took to the red carpet on Thursday evening for the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala held at Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Cap d’Antibes, France on Thursday evening before taking to the runway for the fashion show.
Karolina Kurkova: Cavalli created an uber hot black cut-out gown for the sensational Kurkova. This woman couldn’t look bad if she tried. Aside from the serpent bracelet, she let the gown do all the talking…and it’s sayin’ “don’t I look hot?”
Joan Smalls: The gorgeous model worked a Givenchy Fall 2013 floral sequin sheer gown with a sheer sweater with leather appliqués. I had expected Ciara to have worn one of these looks by now. I didn’t have high hopes for this portion of the collection, but it does translate rather nicely off the runway. I am intrigued to see the look sans sweater.
Karlie Kloss: Is she just not trying anymore? The model wore a Louis Vuitton Pre-Fall 2013 look which is uber chic, but just not enough for a gala event. She could’ve worn anything she wanted, so I wonder why she chose to wear this. Maybe she just wanted to be less obvious like many of her fellow models at this event.
Bianca Balti: The stunning model was the picture of perfection wearing an Alberta Ferretti Fall 2013 black tiered tulle and chiffon gown. Of the models, she was easily one of my favourites.
Alessandra Ambrosio: Looking beautiful is her job, and she’s very good at it. This Zuhair Murad Spring 2013 Couture sleeveless, nude silk chiffon gown with beaded embroidery across the waist and a sweeping train was made to grace the red carpet at a gala.
Irina Shayk: The hits just keep on coming with Irina going one better in this gorgeous pink sleeveless Elie Saab Spring 2013 deep v-neck gown. Usually I find Irina uber tacky, but she pleasantly surprised me on this occasion. A pink leather belt gold clutch completed her look.
Liberty Ross: The model/actress seems to be the one person who has unlimited access to the Balmain collection. Some of the pieces have grown tired as mentioned in a previous post, however, this quilted satin creation is one of the better pieces. I would’ve loved a slicker bun, but she worked it.
Lily Donaldson: Along with Irina, Lily was the brightest of the bunch wearing a red Emilio Pucci gown.
Chanel Iman: The model channels her inner Alexis Colby Carrington and it’s not good. She’s aged about 20 years here.
Petra Nemcova: Wearing Elie Saab for a second night in a row, the model selected a deep blue hue on this occasion which she styled with Chopard jewels.
Eva Herzigova: The model becomes one of many stars who have selected Dior during this festival. Her gown of choice was a white silk evening gown with a cut-out detail at the neckline for a fuss-free look.
Izabel Goulart: Opting for a goddess green Elie Saab gown, the model should have left the emerald necklace in the vault. The dress and ring combo was enough bedazzlement for this look.
Selita Ebanks: So many of her fellow models were working the sexy angle, whereas Selita tried to give us a fairytale princess in her frou frou gown. However, a fairytale princess would never try to work a slit like that. Nude Jimmy Choo ‘Lance’ sandals completed her look.
Liu Wen: She is the epitome of elegance in Cavalli once again.
