Joan Smalls In Emilio Pucci – ‘Cleopatra’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Joan Smalls In Emilio Pucci - ‘Cleopatra’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

For those of you tired of tulle and sick of sequins, Joan Smalls’ look at the ‘Cleopatra’ Cannes Film Festival premiere this evening should serve as a welcome tonic.

The beautiful model, who’s still working an ombre ‘do, wore an Emilio Pucci Pre-Fall 2013 romantic look.

Her powder-pink lace long-sleeve gown with a plunging neckline was styled with a crystal encrusted belt, white strappy sandals and smouldering smoky eyes.

Do you enjoy this change of pace, or is it not enough for Cannes?

Models @ The 2013 Met Gala

Model @ The 2013 Met Gala

Here is a roundup of the models who took to the red carpet at the 2013 Met Gala on Monday night.

Cara Delevingne: Wearing Burberry, the British model nailed the theme, working a studded navy column dress with a plunging neckline. Her part-braided ‘do and studded clutch perfected her look. She was easily one of the best on the night.

Gisele Bundchen: The model wore an Anthony Vaccarello Fall 2013 black mini dress with revealing grommet detailing. You slammed Gwyneth for wearing a gown with sheer sides; does Gisele get a pass?

Karlie Kloss: I never thought I would say this about Karlie: she looks frumpy. Ever since she chopped off her locks she has lost her mojo. This Louis Vuitton granny-chic look ages her about 40 years. Betty White would look better in this frock.

2012 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show After-Party

After the show came the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show after-party. The dress code was clearly short and sexy and the models were more than happy to oblige.

Miranda Kerr: Sending my girl crush into overdrive, Miranda looked uber sexy wearing a Balmain Spring 2013 black silk dress with padded shoulders and a plunging neckline. She styled her look with Jimmy Choo mesh open-toe ‘Callie’ booties and a black studded Jimmy Choo ‘Calista’ clutch with side swept locks. I have one word for this look; perfection.

Karlie Kloss: Following a recently photoshoot with American Vogue, Karlie’s locks were cut short, but she added extensions for the VS Fashion Show. She wore Kaufmanfranco liquid silver sequin dress with gold strappy sandals. I’m on a fan of mixing metals as you know, but I’m willing to give my girl a pass on this occasion.

Joan Smalls: I’m also going to give Joan a pass for this mesh Julien Macdonald Fall 2012 dress which leaves little to the imagination. I’m not a fan of the exposed panties look, but as she was exposing her briefs all night long on the runway, the red carpet wouldn’t have felt much different. Nicholas Kirkwood fringed sandals completed her look.Read More…

Models @ The Met Gala 2012

Gisele Bundchen: The uber model has had many great Met Gala moments. This Givenchy gown is amazing, but she still hasn’t managed to surpass her 2008 Met Gala Versace moment.

Anja Rubik: The model’s protruding hip bone, which is visible thanks to her white Anthony Vaccarello slashed gown with a waist high split, is making me vom. I don’t get the fascination with this woman.

Jessica Stam: The raven haired model looked stunning wearing a Dior Couture gown. I’m not a fan of the hair, but the gown is a work of art.

Who Wore Balmain Better? Zoe Saldana, Joan Smalls or Alessandra Ambrosio

Back in August, Zoe Saldana wore this gorgeous Balmain Resort 2012 dress to the ‘Colombiana’ Miami premiere, but we were on the fence about the additional train.

The dress is so hot and sexy on its own that we wished she’d opted for the lookbook version.

Well, in the space of twenty days, two Victoria’s Secret models have worn this gold-embellished Balmain mini dress as it was presented.

Joan Smalls wore it to the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show after-party at Dream Downtown in New York City earlier this month.

She teamed her dress with silver Alexander Wang Fall 2011 accessories including an Adriel clutch and Fabiana metallic leather sandals.

Usually mixing metals sends a shiver down my spine, but there are enough silver elements in her dress to make this combo work.

Alessandra Ambrosio wore the same dress to the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show viewing party which took place in New York City last night.

She accessorized with tame nude slingbacks and a tan Valentino clutch.

Joan wins for me.

Her accessories are far more interesting. Zoe lost points for the train and black sandals, whilst Alessandra lost major points for her uninspiring accessories.
