Who Wore Roberto Cavalli Better…Jennifer Hudson or Aishwarya Rai

Who Wore Roberto Cavalli Better Jennifer Hudson or Aishwarya Rai

On the night of the Oscars Jennifer Hudson wore this gorgeous Roberto Cavalli blue sequin gown, which she styled with a complementary sequin Jimmy Choo clutch, Sutra earrings and bright-blue Giuseppe Zanotti platform peep-toes.

Indian actress Aishwarya Rai wore the same gown to the 2013 Life Ball in Vienna on Saturday, opting not to focus on the central slit.

She styled her look with just black pumps and a few subtle jewels.

For keeping the blue theme going and adding a touch of pizzazz to her look, Jennifer wins for me.

Life Ball 2013

As we’ve seen time and again at the Cannes Film Festival, Roberto Cavalli is a reigning king of the soiree scene. The designer ruled the red carpet again at Saturday’s extravagant 21st Life Ball and its accompanying, exclusive AIDS Solidarity Gala, which was hosted in the Viennese Hofburg Palace in Austria. A trio of Cavalli lovelies were all dressed to impress, naturally.

Karolina Kurkova: After strutting out a memorable, skin-flaunting Roberto Cavalli entrance at the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala last week, this supermodel returned to the designer for the Solidarity soiree. Except this time, she arrived with far more fabric on her statuesque frame. Still, with this androgynous, embellished tuxedo statement, she was as sexy as ever. This girl can work a power suit to the max. Her long flowing locks and a look-at-me red lippie gave us even more glam.

Aishwarya Rai: Speaking of glam, the Indian star served it up in spades. As the International Goodwill Ambassador for UNAIDS, she lit up the Life Ball stage with her covetable Cavalli hourglass gown, a long-sleeve, dark navy number that was awash in shimmering mermaid-like scales. A peek-a-boo front slit put another level of sultriness into this exit.

Nieves Alvarez: Usually this Spanish model/TV host’s enviable shoes are her plus-one, but she had a handsome accessory in husband Marco Severini, who joined her at the event. She was a long-and-lean screen siren in her Cavalli red column gown featuring an embossed Byzantine pattern, half-circle cutouts at the neckline and a side slit. Gold accessories accented the look with Nieves’s brand of bold style.

amfAR’s 20th Annual Cinema Against AIDS Red Carpet Round Up

amfar 1

Here is a round up of the looks from the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala held at Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Cap d’Antibes, France on Thursday evening.

Janet Jackson: The singer has had many memorable moments at this event, sadly this will not be one of them. Her Armani Privé ensemble is simple and chic, however it is not on par with her Haider Ackermann look from the 2011 event. She styled her look with white ribbon Giuseppe Zanotti sandals and a Paolobongia ring.

Bonnie Wright: Those who remember Bonnie from last year’s event will know that this is much improved. The actress opted for a simple very elegant black Prada dress with a v-neckline which she styled with a gold Prada clutch and opulent earrings.

Aishwarya Rai: The Indian beauty wore traditional look on this occasion selecting a gold Tarun Tahiliani sari which was elegantly wrapped over a gold blouse and styled with gold accessories. Is that too much gold for you?

Aishwarya Rai In Gucci Première – ‘Cleopatra’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Aishwarya Rai In Armani Privé -  ‘Cleopatra’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Along with Liya Kebebe, Aishwarya Rai has been one of the most consistent stars during Cannes Film Festival.

At the ‘Cleopatra’ premiere she hit a home run in the fashion ball park again tonight, wearing a Gucci Première gown.

I love the contrasting textures of her deep teal one shoulder silk gown featuring a pleated fitted bodice and dramatic train. Even though it’s her second fall-like hue, it looks divine against her skin tone.

Many of you have complained about her beautiful hair competing with the gown for the last two looks, so on this occasion she swept that mane up into a high top-knot with a hot shade of fuchsia pink applied to her lips.

A black satin Gucci Broadway clutch with a jeweled clasp completed her look.

Of all Aishwarya’s three looks, where does this one rank?

Aishwarya Rai In Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla - 'Blood Ties' Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Aishwarya Rai made a red carpet appearance for the second day in a row, for the’Blood Ties’ Cannes Film Festival premiere held at the Palais des Festivals in France this evening.

At first I thought she was wearing Valentino, as the brand featured many dresses with this same silhouette in its recent collections, however, her floor-length look was designed by Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla.

The embroidery look, which she styled with a blush coloured clutch, is worthy of such a grand occasion. Even thought this look appears to be very heavy, I love the summery mix of colours.
