2014 amfAR New York Gala Models Roundup

2014 amfAR New York Gala Models Roundup

Here is a roundup of the rest of the ladies who took to the red carpet for the 2014 amfAR New York Gala held at Cipriani Wall Street on Wednesday (February 5) in New York City.

Karolina Kurkova: The Czech model looked stunning wearing a black Armani dress slashed on both the thigh and bodice, with both enriched by beaded detailing. Neutral makeup and bow-accented Jimmy Choo ‘Escape’ sandals completed her look.

Ajak Deng: Also wearing black with breathtaking results was Ajak Deng. Gearing up for a busy fashion month, she started off on the right note wearing a sparkling Kaufmanfranco Fall 2013 gown with sheer inserts which is very much on the right side of sexy.

Dree Hemingway: While everyone was wearing a gown, Dree marched to the beat of her own drum, wearing a super chic Chloé Resort 2014 look featuring a navy top, white ruffled shirt and loose-fit pants. She was my second favourite at this event after Lily Alridge.

Karolina Kurkova In Julien Macdonald – IWC ‘Inside The Wave’ Gala Event

Karolina Kurkova In Julien Macdonald - IWC 'Inside The Wave' Gala Event

Following the day’s event, Karolina Kurkova glammed up for the IWC ‘Inside The Wave’ Gala event during the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) 2014 at Palexpo on Tuesday (January 21) in Geneva, Switzerland.

She turned to the one designer you go to if you need a daring red carpet look – Julien Macdonald.

In the wrong hands this Fall 2013 netted long-sleeved gown with a central slit to the upper thigh which is enriched with gold-embroidered detailing could’ve been quite tragic.

Far from loving the gown, I will say that it is Karolina who is making it work.

Needless to say, I would’ve preferred sandals with this look, but her gold python pumps work perfectly with her look.

Her ever-present IWC watch is far too chunky for such a delicate dress, but thankfully it appears to be lost amongst those gold embellishments.

Karolina Kurkova In David Koma – IWC Schaffhausen At The SIHH 2014

Karolina Kurkova In David Koma - IWC Schaffhausen At The SIHH 2014

Karolina Kurkova was spotted at the IWC booth during the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) 2014 held at Palexpo on Tuesday (January 21) in Geneva, Switzerland.

The supermodel wore a David Koma dress from the designers increasingly popular Spring 2014 collection.

You may remember the fellow former Victoria’s Secret model Miranda Kerr has also selected a look from this collection.

Karolina donned a navy-blue-and-white printed frock with an asymmetrical step hemline, which she opted not to style with the white waistband sported on the runway (much to my disappointment); instead she amped up the look with a sexy pair of Gina strappy sandals.

The IWC watch stands out like a sore thumb, but of course this was a mandatory factor.

A wispy topknot and kohl-rimmed eyes rounded out her look.

Are you missing the waistband?

Karolina Kurkova In Salvatore Ferragamo & Dsquared² – The Pirelli Calendar 50th Anniversary

Karolina Kurkova In Salvatore Ferragamo & Dsquared² - The Pirelli Calendar 50th Anniversary

Karolina Kurkova attended the Pirelli Calendar 50th Anniversary press conference and dinner party in Milan, Italy on Thursday evening.

Press Conference: The gorgeous model worked a sexy chic look, wearing a Salvatore Ferragamo Fall 2013 black-and-blue look featuring a black blazer worn with a navy vest, a navy knit turtleneck with silver-embellished sides and a black mini skirt. This is a great look for Karolina; she could look sexy in a bin liner. However, I’m only loving everything from the ankles up. Her double-ankle-strap Feraragmo pumps don’t shorten her impossibly long legs, but they do make her feet look humungous.

Dinner: For the dinner party, Karolina slipped into something more masculine, working the same Dsquared² black suit, styled with a bowtie and leather shorts. Now this I love from head-to-toe. Karolina always aces these kind of looks and the feline eyes adds an extra dose of fierceness to the look. You may remember that Anna Dello Russo wore this same look during Milan Fashion Week.

Karolina Kurkova In Fendi – 2013 ‘Fashion For Kids’ Insight Charity Fashion Show

Karolina Kurkova In Fendi - 2013 'Fashion For Kids' Insight Charity Fashion Show

Karolina Kurkova returned to the Czech Republic — her home country — for the ‘Fashion For Kids’ charity fashion show, held on Monday evening in Prague.

The model showed off her famously long legs in a structural white Fendi Spring 2014 minidress with studded embellishments.

With no other statement jewels or bag to speak of, she rounded out the look with black-and-silver Fendi platform heels and sleek hair.

While it’s hard to fault this ensemble — Karolina does look amazing — I’m not so crazy about the shoes. I would have liked to have seen her wear a sexy (read: strappier) heel instead.

Karolina Kurkova In Esteban Cortazar – Dream For Future Africa Foundation Inaugural Gala

Karolina Kurkova In Esteban Cortazar - Dream For Future Africa Foundation Inaugural Gala

Karolina Kurkova attended the Dream for Future Africa Foundation Inaugural Gala honouring Franca Sozzani of VOGUE Italia held at Spago in Beverly Hills, California yesterday evening.

Opting to scrape back her hair and decide upon what appears to be no makeup at all, the supermodel wore an Esteban Cortazar Fall 2013 LBD with multiple cut-out details, a cape back and grey panels cupping the sides of her dress.

The look was styled with simple black ankle-strap pumps, but I’m missing just one element, a clutch perhaps, to take this from meh, to me likey.

You may remember that Toni Collette wore this same dress to the ‘Enough Said’ New York screening last month.
