2014 amfAR Milano 2014 Red Carpet Roundup

2014 amfAR Gala Red Carpet Roundup

Here is a roundup of the rest of the looks from the 2014 amfAR Gala held during Milan Fashion Week on Saturday (September 20).

Alessandra Ambrosio: Like Heidi Klum, Alessandra wore Versace, adding yet more va-va-voom to this red carpet. The sexy black beaded gown with a thigh-high slit was styled with an Elena Ghisellini clutch. You may remember that Freida Pinto wore this same gown back in 2012.

Coco Rocha: As always, everything comes to a grinding halt when Coco Rocha takes to the red carpet. Working a bold-shouldered Versace look, the model sashayed down the red carpet like the seasoned pro she is.

amfAR Cinema Against Aids Gala Red Carpet Roundup

amfAR Cinema Against Aids Gala Red Carpet Roundup

Here is a roundup of some of the other attendees at the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS gala held at the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Cap d’Antibes, France this evening (May 22).

Toni Garrn: The model wore an icy silk skirt-and-top combo by Italian brand Redemption Choppers. The liquid-silk top is decorated with metallic needles on the side in an attempt to add an edge to the lingerie-inspired look. Toni styled this to perfection.

Karolína Kurková: Not a red carpet event has gone by where I haven’t loved what the model has worn; sadly, that came to a crashing halt today. Such an uninspiring, unflattering Dior look for a gala – or any – event.

Chanel Iman: The model opted for yet another Reem Acra gown, selecting a gold-draped look which she styled with a gold Jimmy Choo clutch.

Dolce & Gabbana’s 5th Avenue Boutique Opening

Dolce & Gabbana's 5th Avenue Boutique Opening

The Dolce & Gabbana 5th Avenue Boutique Opening took place on Saturday evening in New York City, where Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana enjoyed a night of traditional Italian hospitality and mingled around the space of the new store, which spans three floors.

Giovanna Battaglia: The fashion editor stood out wearing a stunning red satin fit-and-flare dress with a lace overlay, which she styled with red embellished shoes. She was by far my favourite of the night. I love how she captures the essence of a brand without the theatrics.

Paloma Faith: Speaking of theatrics, the British singer went all out in a full Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2013 look, with the only solid piece of her look being her belt. I do love the fact that she’s not afraid of colour, prints and standing out in a room of black lace dresses. This Dolce & Gabbana look featuring a ‘Trio’ of Knight’ dress might not go down too well, but I love her boldness. You may remember that Zhang Zilin wore this same dress earlier this year.

Bianca Brandolini D’Adda: We usually associate Dolce & Gabbana with black lace dresses, but Giovanna and Bianca embraced red lace on this occasion. The socialite donned a bell-sleeved mini dress with a black overlay, styling her look with a black Dolce & Gabbana ponyskin clutch and red embellished sandals.

Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana Win ‘Designer of the Year’ at the GQ Man of the Year 2012

Congratulations to Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana for winning ‘Designer of the Year’ at last night’s GQ Men of the Year 2012 awards.

The Italian design duo were presented with the award by their close personal friend, muse and compatriot Monica Bellucci (left). Model and socialite, Bianca Brandolini D’Adda (right), was also in attendance.

Naturally, both women wore Dolce & Gabbana, though Monica chose a classic floor-length black lace gown, which she paired with a matching black clutch and long, loose tresses.

Bianca opted for a more daring look in a beaded neutral mini and strappy silver sandals. A delicate bracelet and fishtail braid completed the ensemble.

Bianca Brandolini d’Adda In Giambattista Valli Couture – Sideaction Gala Dinner 2012

It was the a night of Spring 2012 Couture firsts on the red carpet at the Sideaction Gala dinner in Paris, France yesterday evening.

Bianca Brandolini d’Adda joined Anna Mouglalis and Dita von Teese as the lucky few to wear straight of the runway looks on Thursday evening.

The Italian socialite and Giambattista Valli muse selected a black and white polka dot shirt gown with embroidered jet beading and pearls with satin trims on the hem.

Her elegant black bow accented look, was teamed with a satin clutch and styled with an elegant updo.

As she often wears her hair down, I’m glad she opted for this hairstyle on this occasion to show off that gorgeous bead work.
