2014 amfAR Milano 2014 Red Carpet Roundup

2014 amfAR Gala Red Carpet Roundup

Here is a roundup of the rest of the looks from the 2014 amfAR Gala held during Milan Fashion Week on Saturday (September 20).

Alessandra Ambrosio: Like Heidi Klum, Alessandra wore Versace, adding yet more va-va-voom to this red carpet. The sexy black beaded gown with a thigh-high slit was styled with an Elena Ghisellini clutch. You may remember that Freida Pinto wore this same gown back in 2012.

Coco Rocha: As always, everything comes to a grinding halt when Coco Rocha takes to the red carpet. Working a bold-shouldered Versace look, the model sashayed down the red carpet like the seasoned pro she is.

Bella Thorne In Emilio Pucci – amfAR Milano 2014 Gala

Bella Thorne In Emilio Pucci - amfAR Milano 2014 Gala

Bella Thorne attended the amfAR Milano 2014 Gala on Saturday (September 20) in Milan, Italy during Fashion Week.

The young star continued to shelve the party dresses in favour of a more grown-up look, wearing an Emilio Pucci black lace gown with sheer and embellished detailing.

While some might deem this too sultry for the soon-to-be 17-year-old actress, I love the gown on her.

Figure flattering, event appropriate and with much-improved makeup from the previous look, the look was topped off with a fishtail-braided halo.

Heidi Klum In Atelier Versace – amfAR Milano 2014 Gala

Heidi Klum In Atelier Versace - amfAR Milano 2014 Gala

Heidi Klum attended the amfAR Milano 2014 Gala during Fashion Week on Saturday (September 20) in Milan, Italy.

With the Klum-Versace union working in perfect harmony once again, the TV host wore a look from the Italian brand’s Atelier Versace Fall 2014 collection.

Her strapless black gown with angular metallic detailing at the waist and a full black skirt with a thigh-high slit was matched with Atelier Versace shoes.

For me this sees Heidi back to her spectacular, glamorous best. Perhaps being in Milan is the key.

I hope this rich vein of form continues; sadly, I will not be holding my breath.

Rosario Dawson In Vionnet – amfAR Milano 2014

Rosario Dawson In Vionnet - amfAR Milano 2014

Rosario Dawson attended the amfAR Milano 2014 Gala on Saturday (September 20) in Milan, Italy.

Having seen and spoken to her during a party at New York Fashion Week – where she told me she wants her red carpet style to take a new direction – I got to realize that these pictures often don’t do her justice and that she’s a lovely, down-to-earth woman.

However, this Vionnet Fall 2014 Couture look was not the right look for her.

Even the likes of Diane Kruger and Cate Blanchett would’ve failed to make this overwhelming look work.

While she’s never afraid of a challenge, this has too much going on, with the end result not being a flattering one.

Beautiful in construction, this one should have been left on the runway or confined to the pages of an editorial.

What is your view?

Ashley Madekwe attended the amfAR Milano 2014 Gala on Saturday (September 20) in Milan, Italy during Fashion Week.

The British actress strikes again, looking radiant wearing a Wes Gordon Fall 2014 bronze satin gown with tonal button detailing which she styled with a gold Kotur clutch and H. Stern jewels.

Currently the most underrated star to take to the red carpet, she gets plenty of love from me as this seductive and chic look was perfectly executed and well styled, as we expect.

Nieves Alvarez In Elie Saab Couture & Emilio Pucci – amfAR Milano 2014 Gala & Vogue Italia 50th Anniversary

Nieves Alvarez In Elie Saab Couture & Emilio Pucci - amfAR Milano 2014 Gala & Vogue Italia 50th Anniversary

It was a busy weekend for Nieves Alvarez, who attended the amfAR Milano 2014 Gala on Saturday (September 20) and the Vogue Italia 50th Anniversary on Sunday (September 21) in Milan, Italy during Fashion Week.

amfAR Milano 2014 Gala: The first look was a gorgeous gold lace cocktail dress from Elie Saab’s Spring 2014 Couture collection. Nipped in at the waist, the plunging neckline was decorated with a breathtaking Bulgari diamond, ruby and emerald necklace, with earrings to match. Unlike Poppy Delevingne’s look, Nieves’ satin Bulgari clutch and Dsquared jewels enhance this look. Smouldering eye makeup and a braided updo provide the finishing touches to one of her best looks this year… and there’s a lot to choose from.

Vogue Italia 50th Anniversary: Opting to sparkle once again, the model wore an Emilio Pucci Pre-Fall 2014 sequin shirtdress dazzler. This look with a more contemporary feel was styled with Christian Louboutin sandals and yet more Bulgari jewels. As beautiful as this look is, my eye goes straight back to the Elie Saab.

Which look do you favour?

Poppy Delevingne In Emilio Pucci – amfAR Milano 2014 Gala

Poppy Delevingne In Emilio Pucci - amfAR Milano 2014 Gala

Poppy Delevingne attended the amfAR Milano 2014 Gala held during Milan Fashion Week on Saturday (September 20) in Milan, Italy.

A friend of the Pucci family, it was no surprise to see her wearing an Emilio Pucci Spring 2015 look so soon.

While it wasn’t a runway piece, the tunic top and trouser look is instantly recognisable for its embroidered and beaded detailing plus the scalloped trim along the neckline.

Her sexy 70s look was styled with a serpent Bulgari necklace and stingray clutch, which I don’t think added anything to the look. The necklace was overkill and the clutch doesn’t complement any part of her look and sticks out like sore thumb.

Are you a fan of her accessories?
