Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Karolina Kurkova In Dion Lee - 2013 US Open

Karolina Kurkova attended the US Open on Saturday.

The model looked sporty and fresh in a Dion Lee shirt and white pencil skirt.

While there’s no wow-factor for me in this look, it’s quite event-appropriate, and Karolina is working it.

Karolina’s white pumps are a vast improvement over the shoes worn on the runway, and her variation is more feminine, which I like.

Simple, sleeked back hair and an almost completely bare face complete the look.

Who Wore Roberto Cavalli Better Karolina Kurkova or Solange Knowles

Karolina Kurkova wore a Roberto Cavalli printed blazer and blouse from the designer’s Spring 2013 collection with Marissa Webb leather pants and Ruthie Davis ‘Captiva’ pumps while making a guest appearance on The Today Show to promote ‘The Face’ back in March.

Two months later, Solange Knowles wore the full runway look styled with a Vionnet green clutch while attending the Belvedere Vodka ‘Walks Its Way’ Run D.M.C. party during Cannes Film Festival.

While I love the runway look, I would’ve preferred a narrower pant on Solange.

Karolina wins for me as I prefer her overall styling, from the unbuttoned blouse to the sexy leather pants.

Models @ 2013 CFDA Fashion Awards

Some of our favourite cat-walkers were among the mix of style royalty at the 2013 CFDA Fashion Awards at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall in New York City. The models definitely had their moment last night, strutting out a slew of bold-name designers and even bolder looks to match.

Adriana Lima: Donning a leggy and luxe Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy Fall 2013 confection, this Brazilian beauty did justice to the edgy designer—who was the CFDA International Award Winner—even with black bloomers peeking through the gown. A center-parted ‘do and glowing makeup finished the look. Fellow model Joan Smalls rocked a similar Givenchy sheer design at the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala. Who do you think wore it best?

Miranda Kerr: This model mom made waves with a retro-modern frock by Proenza Schouler. The square neckline and fit-and-flare shape were nothing if not fun and provided the perfect palette for the trippy, painterly cerulean and verdigris hues. More sophistication came with a classic pair of black, triple ankle-wrap Stuart Weitzman heels, Jennifer Meyer jewels and a silver Stuart Weitzman clutch, along with a fuchsia lippie and low bun.

Joan Smalls: The lovely Latina wore a breezy white, strapless Givenchy gown. The matte white panel on the bottom created a sort of casual, sundress feel. But upon closer inspection, it was anything but beach-y with a corseted bodice and sheer lace-embellished skirt. The glittering choker-necklace added a daring, darker note.

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.

Models @ amfar 1

Here is a round up of all the models who took to the red carpet on Thursday evening for the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala held at Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Cap d’Antibes, France on Thursday evening before taking to the runway for the fashion show.

Karolina Kurkova: Cavalli created an uber hot black cut-out gown for the sensational Kurkova. This woman couldn’t look bad if she tried. Aside from the serpent bracelet, she let the gown do all the talking…and it’s sayin’ “don’t I look hot?”

Joan Smalls: The gorgeous model worked a Givenchy Fall 2013 floral sequin sheer gown with a sheer sweater with leather appliqués. I had expected Ciara to have worn one of these looks by now. I didn’t have high hopes for this portion of the collection, but it does translate rather nicely off the runway. I am intrigued to see the look sans sweater.

Karlie Kloss: Is she just not trying anymore? The model wore a Louis Vuitton Pre-Fall 2013 look which is uber chic, but just not enough for a gala event. She could’ve worn anything she wanted, so I wonder why she chose to wear this. Maybe she just wanted to be less obvious like many of her fellow models at this event.

Karolina Kurkova In Balmain - 'For The Love Of Cinema' Event

Karolina Kurkova attended the ‘For The Love Of Cinema’ event hosted by Swiss luxury watch manufacturer IWC Schaffhausen at the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Antibes, France on Sunday alongside Naomi Watts.

The supermodel opted for a high-neck Balmain Pre-Fall 2013 long-sleeved black leather mini dress with gold piping throughout.

Her legs seem to go on for days in this look, which she styled with a gold-embellished belt and black booties.

Is it me, or are all these Balmain dresses starting to all look the same?
