2015 CFDA Fashion Awards Red Carpet Roundup

2015 CFDA Fashion Awards Red Carpet Roundup

An additional chic set of lovelies were among the constellation of style stars at the 2015 CFDA Fashion Awards, hosted at Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center on Monday (June 1) in New York City.

Katie Holmes: I really wanted to love the actress’s one-of-a-kind Ralph Lauren Collection deep-green silk charmeuse evening dress accented with Ralph Lauren vintage jewels. Shame about the wrinkles in the dress and the long, barely-styled hair that hid the beautiful earrings.

Abigail Spencer: It was delightful to see such a bright, patterned Novis dress, where the bold colour continued with royal purple Malone Souliers Dawn Mules heels and a magenta lip. The end result was captivatingly fresh and charming, even if it appeared slightly less formal than some of the other entrances.

Gigi Hadid: This Michael Kors Resort 2016 glittery jumpsuit had a distinct Studio 54 vibe, but the model wore it so well, creating a chicly modern appeal with Michael Kors ‘Jacqueline’ sandals, a metallic Michael Kors clutch, and Atelier Swarovski jewels.

Petra Nemcova In Zuhair Murad Couture – ‘Youth’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

"Youth" Premiere - The 68th Annual Cannes Film Festival

Petra Nemcova attended the premiere of ‘Youth’ during the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday (May 20) in Cannes, France.

The model wore a beautiful Zuhair Murad silk crepe peplum jacket with silver sequins and crystals, paired with a floaty silk chiffon skirt from the Spring 2015 Couture collection.

Seemingly she learnt nothing from yesterday’s outing, as the same fit issues relating to the top half of yesterday’s look apply to today’s.

A slight modification to the jacket would’ve helped ensure this was a tasteful look; sadly, that wasn’t to be the case.

Petra Nemcova In Zuhair Murad Couture – ‘Sicario’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

"Sicario" Premiere - The 68th Annual Cannes Film Festival

Petra Nemcova attended the premiere of ‘Sicario’ during the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival on Tuesday (May 19) in Cannes, France.

I would’ve said that this Zuhair Murad Spring 2015 Couture gown was quite a princess moment for Petra, but I don’t know many princesses who would wear a gown with such a deep plunge.

It really should’ve been modified to keep the twins under control because at present they look like a wardrobe malfunction ready to happen.

On the plus side, this is one of the few season-appropriate gowns we have seen during Cannes.

Models @ The Chopard Party

Models @ The Chopard Party

Models were out in force for the Chopard party during the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, France on Monday (May 18).

As always, there was a lot of bling courtesy of the host Chopard, plenty of thigh-revealing frocks and of course, a high percentage of Elie Saab Couture gowns.

Lindsay Ellingson: The model wore a Sophie Theallet striped gown with thigh-high slit. I love the added flavour via her colourful leather belt and shoes from Sophie Theallet’s ‘Jamaican Dancehall’ collection which I must own.

Thairine Garcia: My jaw-dropped upon seeing the red haired model wearing this gorgeous green Elie Saab gown. Red + green = red carpet perfection.

Daniela Braga: The Brazilian model sparkled in a blue Elie Saab Fall 2013 Couture gown which was similar in style to Ana Beatriz Barros’ red gown (from the same collection) who was standing right beside her.

Toni Garrn: Shunning the bling trend, the model kept things simple in a blush silk Blumarine gown.

Petra Nemcova: I expected some bling from Petra, but on this occasion that only came courtesy of her Chopard jewels.

Irina Shayk: Showing an incredible amount of restraint, the model, who’s known to wear many embellished gowns slit to the thigh, opted for a simple yet chic Misha Nonoo jumpsuit on this occasion.

Adriana Lima: The model also went down a surprisingly muted path vamping up her simple white gown with Giuseppe Zanotti accessories.

Isabeli Fontana: An any other day we would scold the Brazilian beauty for overcooking her embellished Elie Saab Couture gown with that necklace, but this was a Chopard party, excess was expected.

Petra Nemcova In Emilio Pucci – Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation Gala

Petra Nemcova In Emilio Pucci - Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation Gala

It was a model fest at the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation Gala held at the Domaine Bertaud Belieu on Wednesday (23 July) in Saint-Tropez, France, where Petra Nemcova joined Natasha Poly and Toni Garrn on the red carpet.

The Czech model wore an Emilio Pucci black silk jersey gown with cut-out detailing paired with Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ sandals, jaw-dropping emerald earrings and a metallic ostrich Zagliani Vanity Cube clutch.

As you know black isn’t my favourite colour on the red carpet, but I am totally charmed by Petra’s presentation of this look; from the sutlry reveal of the slit, the black gown paired with emerald jewels – which continues to be a winning combination – and her flawless hair and makeup.

IN AWE.

Petra Nemcova In Zuhair Murad Couture – ‘Two Days, One Night’ (‘Deux Jours, Une Nuit’) Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Petra Nemcova In Zuhair Murad Couture - 'Two Days, One Night'  ('Deux Jours, Une Nuit') Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Petra Nemcova attended the ‘Two Days, One Night’ (‘Deux Jours, Une Nuit’) premiere during the 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival this evening (May 20) in Cannes, France.

The model seemed to be having fun as she glided down the red carpet taking selfies with her Chopard-branded iPhone.

She stunned in a Zuhair Murad Spring 2014 black strapless tulle sweetheart-neckline gown embellished with tinkling beaded details.

Once again I wish one of the yellow-, peach- or lavender-hued gowns had been considered from this collection, but black is becoming quite the dramatic choice this year, and one I can’t complain about with such breath-taking results.

A simple updo and gold Chopard jewels completed her look.

Models @ The Chopard Party In Elie Saab Couture

Chopard Backstage Arrivals - The 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival

Models Liu Wen, Alessandra Ambrosio, Arlenis Sosa, Eva Herzigová, Petra Nemcova and Adriana Lima, as well as Co-President of Chopard Caroline Scheufele, attended the Chopard dinner held at the Cannes-Mandelieu Aerodrome during the 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival this evening (May 19) in Cannes, France.

This picture looks like a scene backstage at an Elie Saab Couture show, although the man himself is missing from the shot.

Each the ladies wore a mixture of archive pastel-hued Elie Saab Couture pieces with Chopard jewels.

Liu Wen wore a blue Spring 2010 Couture gown. Alessandra’s green strapless creation hails from the Spring 2011 Couture collection, as does Arlenis’ ivory one-shoulder lightly embellished gown.

Eva also went strapless, with her summery lemon Spring 2010 Couture gown. Petra stunned in a nude Spring 2011 Couture gown, while Adriana rounded out Elie’s elite lovelies with a strapless Spring 2011 Couture gown with draped overlay.

It’s always hard to pick a favourite Elie Saab gown, especially when worn by such beautiful women as we have here, but Liu Wen was the stand-out for me – although I also found myself really enamoured by the green hue against Alessandra’s olive skin.

Who stands out for you?
