A collection of models likewise turned out for the Vogue Paris Foundation dinner on Tuesday (July 4).
Lily Aldridge: At the height of classic elegance—with a notion of plunging sultriness—this Ralph Lauren white blazer and black trousers showed the sexy side of menswear-inspired tailoring.
Kendall Jenner: Donning a Mugler mini, this look had all the hallmarks of the designer with its strong, pointed shoulder, body-skimming silhouette, and leggy M.O. But, on Kendall, it maintained a fresh edge with her gorgeous gemstone earrings and sleek high bun.
Karolina Kurkova: The complexity of this wolf-printed Balmain cold-shoulder dress and its collection of fringe, embellishment and exaggerated sleeves, was no match for Karolina’s style prowess as she wore it with ease. But, there will be no denying that it would have been so much more well-suited for a fall engagement—especially with the suede legging boots.
Cindy Bruna: This sheer Balmain jumpsuit definitely had its fair share of cool edge, but its definitive sheer quality had me saying ‘next.’ De Grisogono jewels rounded out the transparent look.
Karlie Kloss: Introducing a slightly gothic note to the proceedings, Karlie wore an oxblood lip with her spliced Mugler gown that won’t be anything that stylistically earth-shattering. But, her ice-blonde locks present an intriguing newness. Giuseppe Zanotti sandals completed the look.
Adwoa Aboah: Adwoa may be more petite in height, at least as models go, but you would never know with this crisp white Burberry suit that was both streamlined and elongating. I love that she finished the monochromatic look with the pop of a coral lip.
Arizona Muse: Bold, bright, and vibrant, Arizona was a colourful beauty amidst the more monochromatic statements in Sonia Rykiel. I wasn’t in love with her mauve, velvet platforms, but you barely noticed them with all that floral print plus her red lip.
Cara Delevingne: Also with something of a goth-glam spirit, Cara stayed true to her favoured minis with this semi-sheer LBD yet it was the strong styling that enhanced the look with style-forward edge—from her half-on blazer, to her embellished hair jewelry, and pendant necklace. The pumps were an afterthought, though.
Kate Moss: With an ensemble that was straight-up, off-duty rock star, the supermodel donned her retro-inspired shades with a glittery Saint Laurent by Anthony Vaccarello blazer with casual black denim.
Constance Jablonski: Also in a Mugler gown, this slit-to-there number with the signature star motif won’t be anything we haven’t seen in some form before. But, I never tire of a sleek look worn well, and Constance’s Dauphin jewels and metallic pumps provided the perfect finish.
Anna Cleveland: The model is known to embrace a quirkier aesthetic, and that was strongly reinforced here with this plaid patchwork shirtdress. Some will likely praise its adventurous, experimental quality, while others will see an amateur fashion experiment. Hot-pink booties drew upon the teeny bit of the same colour in the top collar, but were still a brashly bold finish. Boucheron jewels rounded out the look.
Anja Rubik: Sticking to what she knows, Anja wore a Saint Laurent by Anthony Vaccarello sheer blouse and embellished mini but even she seemed a bit bored with it.
Laetitia Casta: Between Laetitia’s wet-look hair and the strapless Saint Laurent by Anthony Vaccarello mini that seemed primed and ready to slip down too far, this look just didn’t come together.
Grace Hartzel: With the stiff structure of this embroidered Christian Dior dress, it needed a relaxed sense of styling. Instead, Grace’s gigantic clutch, heavy makeup, and tall boots completely overcooked it.
Marie-Ange Casta: Laetitia’s younger sister opted for a Balmain studded, suede outfit that referenced the fall season just as strongly as Karolina’s Balmain ensemble.
