amfAR’s 20th Annual Cinema Against AIDS Red Carpet Round Up

amfar 1

Here is a round up of the looks from the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala held at Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Cap d’Antibes, France on Thursday evening.

Janet Jackson: The singer has had many memorable moments at this event, sadly this will not be one of them. Her Armani Privé ensemble is simple and chic, however it is not on par with her Haider Ackermann look from the 2011 event. She styled her look with white ribbon Giuseppe Zanotti sandals and a Paolobongia ring.

Bonnie Wright: Those who remember Bonnie from last year’s event will know that this is much improved. The actress opted for a simple very elegant black Prada dress with a v-neckline which she styled with a gold Prada clutch and opulent earrings.

Aishwarya Rai: The Indian beauty wore traditional look on this occasion selecting a gold Tarun Tahiliani sari which was elegantly wrapped over a gold blouse and styled with gold accessories. Is that too much gold for you?

Heidi Klum In Marchesa – amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala

Heidi Klum In Marchesa - amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala

Heidi Klum made a quick dash from the Cannes red carpet, to the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala held at Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Cap d’Antibes, France this evening, as she does every year.

What is also customary is that she wears a Marchesa gown for the occasion. This is one of the few Cannes traditions that hasn’t been broken this year.

She wore a Marchesa Spring 2013 strapless white sheer and gold frock from the Bollywood inspired collection.

This look is even less favourable than the last. I would’ve preferred this look had she kept the original length.

Had she not worn the previous tight fitted look, I would be tempted to ask how far along is she.

That A.P.B. for Heidi’s missing red carpet mojo is still outstanding.

Rosario Dawson In Marchesa – ‘Cleopatra’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Rosario Dawson In Marchesa - 'Cleopatra' Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Rosario Dawson was able to quickly redeem herself this evening at the ‘Cleopatra’ Cannes Film Festival premiere, following the poor showing on the red carpet last night.

On this occasion she wore a Marchesa Resort 2013 gown.

The sparking golden creation featured puffy sleeves and a fishtail skirt that she styled with a diamond cuff, which wasn’t needed, and a Ferragamo clutch.

Sweeping locks and a hot red lip colour completed her look.

This is much improved for me. What say you?

Naomie Harris In Dolce & Gabbana & Marchesa – ‘Life Is Amazing’ Presentation & The Weinstein Company Party

Naomie Harris In Dolce & Gabbana & Marchesa - 'Life Is Amazing' Presentation & The Weinstein Company Party

British actress Naomie Harris attended two events on Sunday evening during Cannes Film Festival.

Lexus Short Film Series ‘Life Is Amazing’ Presentation: Dressed in a lemony Dolce & Gabbana sleeveless lace frock, Naomie looked radiant. The colour is divine against her skin tone and I love the fresh, light makeup and complementary gold accessories including Jimmy Choo ‘Raven’s sandals and a Jimmy Choo ‘Cosma’ clutch.

The Weinstein Company Party: As night time fell, Naomie was ready to party the night away in her Marchesa Fall 2013 frock. The black strapless tulle gown with gold embroidery and an asymmetrical cascading ruffle was styled with Nicholas Kirkwood bow- and pearl-accented sandals and a Jimmy Choo ‘Ciggy’ clutch.

I love the 40s ‘do she rocked with both looks, but I would’ve loved her second look more had she opted for smoky eyes and a darker lip colour.

Jessica Biel In Marchesa – ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Jessica Biel In Marchesa - 'Inside Llewyn Davis' Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Following a short trip to Monaco for the Dior Cruise 2014 presentation yesterday evening, Jessica Biel took to the red carpet during the Cannes Film Festival this evening to support her husband Justin Timberlake who stars in the movie, ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’.

Opting not to wear a gown, the actress wore a feather-and-embroidered confection from Marchesa’s Fall 2012 collection.

I’m not sure I love the dress, however, I’m thankful that she took a risk — but I know I don’t like the styling.

The heavily embellished Marchesa clutch and serpent necklace detract a lot of attention away from the dress. The necklace feels like the biggest offender here.

I’m sure there will be many Bjork comparisons, so what do you think about this look?

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.

Met Gala 2013 Roundup

Met Gala 2013

Here is a roundup of the rest of the ladies who took to the red carpet for the 2013 Met Gala on Monday evening. Models @ The Met post will follow.

Brooklyn Decker: The actress wore a custom Peter Pilotto look inspired by the Spring 2013 collection. While the look is custom I feel like I have seen this look several times before, so there is nothing fresh or new about it, unlike other custom looks as showcased by Karolina Kurkova and several others. Her Sergio Rossi ‘Hypnos’ sandals, however, are a work of art.

Alicia Keys: The singer took to the red carpet wearing a custom Jason Wu gown. Her black leather and bordeaux sequin embroidered halter gown is beautiful, but I wish Alicia had pushed the punk vibe with the styling a bit more; the red streaks in her hair aren’t enough for me, especially when we know Alicia isn’t afraid of taking a fashion risk. Robert Lee Morris jewels and a vintage clutch completed her look.

Maggie Gyllenhaal: The actress wore a beautiful custom Calvin Klein scarlet gown for the occasion which was punked up as far as she would go with a studded choker and a Tod’s black studded clutch with a gold frame. While I do love this look, I wish Maggie had gone bra shopping before this event.
