Eva Longoria In Elie Saab – 2017 amfAR Gala Cannes

Eva Longoria attended the amfAR Gala during the Cannes Film Festival on Thursday (May 25).

The actress wore a beautifully crafted Elie Saab gown with diamond jewels to accent.

After a stunning first turn at Cannes, Eva has put forward two very disappointing looks, and I’m afraid this one is only slightly better in my book.

It pains me to say it about an Elie Saab gown, but this just isn’t fabulous on Eva. The gown itself is stunning, but it makes Eva look boxy. Perhaps if the bodice was altered a bit, it would help?

Her hair isn’t helping matters, either. Those ultra-curled tendrils are very prom, and very wrong.

Am I being too harsh, or do you agree?

Charli XCX In Stella McCartney – amfAR Hong Kong

Charli XCX is known for her close association with Vivienne Westwood, but that all changed for amfAR Hong Kong on Saturday (March 25).

And if it isn’t Westwood, it’s House of Holland; so her decision to go glam in Stella McCartney was a refreshing choice.

Combining a simple silhouette with a bold orange hue ensured maximum impact, so it’s such a shame the hair didn’t live up to the rest of her look.

Charlize Theron In Saint Laurent – amfAR Hong Kong

Following the ‘The Fate of the Furious’ press conference, Charlize Theron joined Naomi Campbell for the amfAR Hong Kong Gala on Saturday (March 25).

I was swept away by the majestic ambience of her Saint Laurent Spring 2017 gown embellished with sequins.

Shaped for a supremely close fit, I’m delighted to see a return of her sultry side as this look is oozing with plenty of sex appeal.

Not many were enamoured by her Louis Vuitton look, so how does this more glamorous offering fare?

Naomi Campbell In Ralph & Russo Couture – amfAR Hong Kong

Naomi Campbell attended the amfAR Hong Kong Gala on Saturday (March 25) looking every inch a supermodel.

It was rather apt that the queen of the catwalk grace the red carpet wearing a regal offering from Ralph & Russo’s Fall 2015 Couture collection.

I love the intricate detailing which tempers the sheerness and how this look ushers in a new (rare) glimpse at Naomi’s romantic side.

The pointy pumps are a bit jarring, but the look is perfectly topped off with signature sleek tresses and a Ralph & Russo Couture ‘Alina’ clutch.

amfAR New York Gala Red Carpet Roundup

Many more models were in attendance at the 19th Annual amfAR New York Gala, honouring Donatella Versace, on Wednesday (February 8) in New York City.

Adriana Lima: Although she wasn’t dressed in Versace, the supermodel’s Zuhair Murad dressing gown-inspired design, paired with Giuseppe Zanotti sandals, brought plenty of seductive appeal. While the lace lingerie aesthetic is nothing new, there’s no denying that Adriana—and her dramatic red lip—delivered the look with smoldering allure that could easily make us forget the sheer fatigue.

Liu Wen: Compared to Adriana, the model’s Rita Vinieri black and white gown seemed mighty tame. Yet I loved the ease with which she wore this minimalistic moment that was assured of a classically sophisticated standing at the event. Giuseppe Zanotti sandals finished the look.
