4th Annual amfAR Inspiration Gala New York Red Carpet Round Up

Here are the rest of the attendees who took to the red carpet at the Plaza Hotel in New York City on Thursday evening for the 4th Annual amfAR Inspiration Gala New York.

Nora Zehetner: The pretty actress wore a black-hemmed ivory Calvin Klein Spring 2013 cold-shoulder mini dress, which she styled with black sandals and a gold clutch, adding a red lip colour which matched her pedicure.

Izabel Goulart: Usually one to opt for a jaw-dropping gown, the model switched things up on this occasion, donning a sharply tailored Alberta Ferretti suit sans blouse. She styled her look with a gold necklace, black pointy peep-toes and a Judith Leiber clutch.

Iman: The uber model opted for a bright-orange Valentino gown which I can’t say I’m too fond of. I don’t like the asymmetrical neckline, the brooch detail or the spillage on the skirt.

Dita von Teese’s risqué Tadashi Shoji gown was the clear winner for best dressed this week.

The burlesque star added her signature red lipstick, 1940’s Marcel waves and diamond drop earrings to complete her sultry look..

In the wrong hands this gown could’ve headed down to Tackyville, USA, but Dita oozes elegance and sophistication every time she hits the red carpet and this was no exception.

You will not be surprised that Iman was my favourite this week.

The maths was quite simple.

One of my favourite diva’s + a Zac Posen Spring 2012 gown = red carpet perfection.

Iman on the red carpet is always a special moment, but it was made that much more special at the 2011 Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater’s Opening Night Gala performance in New York City last night.

That’s because the uber model was wearing the first look from the Zac Posen Spring 2012 collection.

As you know, this was my favourite Spring 2012 show, so to see a glamazon like Iman don the first look is truly a ‘we are not worthy’ moment for me.

I was patiently waiting for award season, so it feels like Christmas has come early.

With her hair swept up in retro marcel waves, Iman looked sensational wearing a burgundy silk-faille pleated gown which is doing so many amazingly great things to her impossibly spectacular body.

I could’ve lived without the necklace, but I do love her matchy clutch.

Iman continues to outdo herself and defy her years. I will always be in total awe of this woman.

Iman was honoured at the ‘Rodeo Drive Walk of Style Awards’ which took place in Beverly Hills on Sunday.

The supermodel never looks anything but perfect, and this was a very typical flawless red carpet appearance.

She wore a Rachel Zoe Resort 2012 dress, which is our first look at this collection on the red carpet.

The chic nude chiffon dress with a neck-tie was made sexy with a thigh-high split which Iman doesn’t overplay.

Gold Christian Louboutin slingbacks, chocolate brown Rachel Zoe Spring 2012 sequin jacket over her shoulders and a selection of Fred Leighton’s vintage gold and gemstone bracelets perfected her look.

I can imagine that Rachel went ‘ba-nanas’ when she saw the supermodel in her dress.

Iman attended the Gordon Parks Foundation awards dinner and auction at Gotham Hall in New York City last night.

The supermodel looked stunning wearing a Prabal Gurung Spring 2011 on-trend colour block blue and yellow ensemble.

The colours are perfect for her skin-tone and I love how the top drapes off her shoulder.

I’m dazzled by her beauty, her sensational look, those breath-taking marine blue custom Irene Neuwirth earrings, but her choice of footwear is a huge let down.

With Iman’s walk-in shoe closet, I’m sure she could’ve found a more complementary pair.

Do you find yourself put off by the shoes? Or would you still consider this for BDOTW?

Supermodel Iman took to the red carpet at the Met Gala earlier this month wearing a gold and bronze sequined Stella McCartney jumpsuit.

The jumpsuit features a deep V-neck, padded shoulders, long sleeves and loose fitting pants.

Iman cinched in the waist with a decorative black and gold belt and accessorized with a mini clutch, platform heels and some stunning costume jewelry.

I like the details of this outfit but sadly I think the impact is lost in the fact that her hair, skin tone and the colour of the jumpsuit are all blending into one another. I think if the jumpsuit had been a different colour this would’ve been more impactful.

Gwen Stefani attended “The Tree of Life” 2011 Cannes Film Festival Premiere wearing the black version which she also opted to cinch in at the waist.

The rest of her accessories included platform heels, a gold clutch and matching bracelet.

I really love Gwen’s hair and makeup. I love the deep side part and wavy curls and I think her makeup is youthful and fun. Her punchy pink pout is pretty and perfectly complements the rest of her look so she wins for me.
