Models @ amfAR’s 20th Annual Cinema Against AIDS

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 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?

Karolina Kurkova In Carolina Herrera – 2013 Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup

Karolina Kurkova In Carolina Herrera - 2013 Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup

Model Karolina Kurkova turned out for a day of sport at the 2013 Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup at the Greenwich Polo Club in Connecticut, hosted on Wednesday during HRH Prince Harry’s visit to the United States.

After a punkish spin at the Met Gala last week, the statuesque stunner referenced another style era, the ’40s, with this retro-chic moment; a bell-sleeve dress from Carolina Herrera’s Fall 2013 collection.

Covered up in abstract blue dahlia blooms, Karolina strutted out an entirely different vibe from her customary cool-girl edge in this prim and proper frock.

But she was no wallflower and can obviously keep pace with old Hollywood glamour, too.

In fact, I almost prefer her more simplistic styling of the look to that seen on the runway, as she turned the neckline into a keyhole and threw off the dark-navy belt in favour of letting the ruched corset waist stand on its own.

The matching sandals were also cast aside for a straightforward pair of white pumps, while she topped off the ensemble with a casual side-parted ponytail and a petal-pink lippie.

Perfect for polo, or too plain?

Karolina Kurkova In Mary Katrantzou – 2013 Met Gala

Karolina Kurkova In Mary Katrantzou - 2013 Met Gala

Karolina Kurkova took the red carpet at the 2013 Met Gala in New York City on Monday evening.

The Czech supermodel worked a custom Mary Katrantzou one-sleeve mini dress with a 3-D effect skirt to perfection.

Her multi-print dress may come off as too busy for some, but she has the style, confidence and attitude to make it work.

Studded ankle-strap pumps, a slicked back hairdo, extreme smoky eyes and a nude pout completed the look.

I had no doubt that Karolina would fully embrace the theme.

Karolina Kurkova In Givenchy - Moda Operandi’s ‘A Midnight Supper’ Event

Karolina Kurkova attended Moda Operandi’s ‘A Midnight Supper’ event, which launched the retailer’s exclusive ‘Punk Collection’.

The model wore a Givenchy long silk-cady sleeveless vest, featuring studded embellishments, a notch collar and flap pockets, which is part of the limited edition ‘Punk Collection’.

Taking the styling into her own hands, Karolina opted to wear the vest as a dress – naturally, with those long legs – adding ankle-strap pumps and a red clutch to her look.

Working a fresh-faced look, Karolina completed her look with a chic updo and rosy glossy lips.

Look out for Karolina on the red carpet at the Met Gala tonight, where she’s expected to wear a London-based designer.
