Elton John’s AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party Red Carpet Roundup

There was no shortage of memorable looks at Elton John’s AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party on Sunday (March 4) in West Hollywood, California.

Karolina Kurkova: Look closely at the Czech model’s Balmain Pre-Fall 2018 suit as the fabric has a marvelous texture that’s flecked with sparkles on the collar. It might not have been the loudest look, but it was unique and nice to see another pants option.

Darby Stanchfield: The ‘Scandal’ actress celebrated floral and fauna with her Teresa Helbig gown. Unfortunately, there were too many opposing elements between the print, sequins, sharp neckline and the sparkling bag. I can see some saying it’s a lesser version of Gucci.

Petra Nemcova: The philanthropist and model struck a pose in a sunny Celia Kritharioti gown. It was a well-executed look with her waves echoing the ruffled shoulder detail. The red lipstick and high slit added allure to the cheerful fabric.

Laura Marano: With a sweeping hemline and ombré lace appliqués, the actress and singer looked like the belle of the ball in Tony Ward Couture.

Andie MacDowell: If the actress’s beaming smile is anything to go by, she is feeling confident in her Georges Chakra gown and Bvlgari jewels. Her enthusiasm is infectious and I can see why she would love the one-shouldered style thanks to the majestic purple colour and softly draped ruffles.

Jasmine Sanders: The model oozed dark romance in an Iris Serban gown. It was bewitching with the layers of tulle flowing to the ground and the inky beading. The statement pendant brought some lightness and more shine.

Judith Light: The ‘Transparent’ actress left the gown behind in favour of a Zac Posen ensemble. It offered as much drama and glamour as any dress with the voluminous ruffled sleeves enveloping her in a cloud-like silhouette. Paired with sleek black pants, it was a chic riff on tuxedo dressing.

Adriana Lima: The Brazilian beauty loves a sexy gown so this embellished Georges Hobeika dress with René Caovilla shoes and Chopard jewels was very much in her wheelhouse. With the exposed nipples and up-to-there slit, I’m sure I’m not alone in saying this was too naked of a style and in need of a lining.

Jackie Cruz: The ‘Orange is the New Black’ actress was another one in Tony Ward Couture. There were no shortage of dramatic details on the gown, but like Adriana, her dress will likely be remembered for the exposed nipples.

Shanina Shaik: The model recalled the glamour of decades gone by in an August Getty dress with Lorraine Schwartz jewels. The white gown still would have been beautiful with minimalist styling, but I appreciate how she upped the drama with her hair and accessories.

Sofia Richie: The model’s Armani gown had a simple cut that allowed the mixed patterns to take center stage. The Bvlgari jewels played off the silver tones in the style.

Jasmine Tookes: Another beauty in bold prints, the model turned heads in a geometric Monique Lhuillier gown festooned with dégradé feathers. The Dvani earrings and Ivy NY ring tied in the rich hues from the textured skirt.

Lais Ribeiro: In an August Getty gown, Giuseppe Zanotti shoes and Bulgari jewels, the Brazilian model looked like a modern Jessica Rabbit. The look oozed sensuality and glamour.

Katharine McPhee: The singer and actress opted for a shorter silhouette in a Leilou by Alex dress. It still had details aplenty with the highly decorative bodice and cascade of sparkles on the hem. The sheer fabrication enhanced the lingerie inspiration.

Kat Graham: The former ‘Pretty Little Liars’ star isn’t afraid to experiment with out-of-the-ordinary silhouettes. Unfortunately, this Ermanno Scervino ensemble didn’t come together as strongly as it could have. It feels a bit too contrived and better suited for another occasion.

Busy Philipps: I appreciate the dancer inspiration of this Christian Siriano gown, but even with the voluminous skirt, it lacks the glamour needed for the occasion. It seems like she pulled the shimmering skirt over her leotard. Abbie Cornish‘s take on the dark top and patterned skirt were much more successful.

Bellamy Young: The ‘Scandal’ star also shimmered, donning a Stephane Rolland Couture gown with René Caovilla shoes and MEIRA T jewels. It had a captivating Art Deco quality from the embellishment. I applaud her for having a lining that matched her skin tone so precisely.

    Don’t know Darby Stanchfield but for some reason I like her outfit. The top misses the mark but the skirt looks very pretty.

    lais, shanina and jasmine ftw. nothing about sofia works for me, on the red carpet or as a “model”.

  4. Maria F. March 6, 2018 at 08:49 #

    Jasmine Tookes, Judith Light, Petra Nemcova and Andie McDowell all look lovely.

    Judith Light has just so much presence on the red carpet.

    Andie and Shanina look great.

    Kat Graham starred in The Vampire Diaries, not Pretty Little Liars.

    Andie and Busy’s skirt are my faves.

    Bellamy Young looks beautiful in her art deco inspired gown. My favorite look is by Jasmine Tookes as I love her gown and her glorious earrings really were the perfect finishing touch.

  10. Melyd March 6, 2018 at 01:20 #

    Love love love the look of Jasmine Tookes

  11. quimby March 6, 2018 at 00:59 #

    Good LORD did Adriana get stuck in Heidi Klum’s closet or something? Not great.

    My favorites are Jasmine, Sofia, and I think Busy’s works with her fun personality.

  12. Mimi March 6, 2018 at 00:13 #

    Lais and Jasmine Sanders are my favorite here by a mile

  13. TeaAtTwo March 5, 2018 at 23:40 #

    I like Karolina, Darby, Judith, Jasmine S, Jasmine T, Sofia (sans necklace), and Shanina. Adriana just reminds me of Bella Cannes dress and not in a good way.

  14. Ria March 5, 2018 at 21:40 #

    Adriana Lima…ridiculous

    Jasmine Tookes- elegant

  15. Fanny March 5, 2018 at 20:55 #

    I love everything about Shanina Shaik’s look except for the dress. Hair and makeup looks amazing.

  16. Anona March 5, 2018 at 20:54 #

    Shanina Shaik looks awesome!

  17. ANON March 5, 2018 at 20:54 #

    I don’t understand what Adriana Lima was thinking? is she allergic to clothing ? what the need to show every thing? SO tacky and so inappropriate

    • meme March 5, 2018 at 21:45 #

      I find it so degrading when women dress like this.

      • Maya March 5, 2018 at 22:30 #

        I hate this look too, but let’s not accuse women of degrading themselves because they wear revealing clothing.

        • Trinny March 7, 2018 at 03:20 #

          Hear hear!

    • charlotte March 6, 2018 at 11:10 #

      and we’ve seen her in something like this a million times

  18. Iva March 5, 2018 at 20:53 #

    Jasmine Tookes is by far my favorite here.

    • JHH March 5, 2018 at 21:27 #

      +1, followed closely, for me by Judith Light.

    • Pheephee March 6, 2018 at 00:46 #

      +2 Jasmine Tookes looks beautiful.

  19. meme March 5, 2018 at 20:52 #

    Adriana was wearing a thong so when she turned around her butt was on display. Very very tacky and cheap.

    I love Judith Light. She is a Grande Dame.

  20. Caroline March 5, 2018 at 20:50 #

    Petra and Jasmine (Sanders) are my favorites.
