Dita von Teese In Ulyana Sergeenko Couture – 2015 amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala

Dita von Teese In Ulyana Sergeenko Couture - 2015 amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala

Dita von Teese attended amfAR’s 22nd Cinema Against AIDS Gala at Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc on Thursday (May 21) in Cap d’Antibes, France.

The burlesque star wore an Ulyana Sergeenko Spring 2015 Couture layered bell-shaped dress adorned with beautiful embroidered details.

This is a huge leap outside her comfort zone, so I would’ve loved for Dita to have switched up the styling on this occasion, with the hair being worn up for a start.

I have a feeling this might not go down so well, but my issue is the decision to wear the ankle-strap shoes with that skirt length, and of course the necklace paired with such a decorative piece.

Alicia Vikander In Louis Vuitton – 2015 amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala

Alicia Vikander In Louis Vuitton - 2015 amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala

Alicia Vikander attended amfAR’s 22nd Cinema Against AIDS Gala at Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc on Thursday (May 21) in Cap d’Antibes, France.

The Swedish actress wore her second look from the Louis Vuitton Resort 2016 collection.

While I have no issue with the look itself as the style has a youthful edge, it felt rather casual for a gala.

With Alicia’s new ambassadorial role, we can look forward to seeing her in many LV looks from now on.

2015 amfAR Inspiration Gala Sao Paulo

2015 amfAR Inspiration Gala Sao Paulo

The 5th Annual amfAR Inspiration Gala took place at the home of Dinho Diniz on Friday (April 10) in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Naomi Campbell: As she did last year, Naomi wore a Givenchy Couture show-stopping piece. Decked out in feathers and red paillettes, this look is classic Naomi; bold and sexy while maintaining high-fashion allure. The look was accessorized with Harry Winston jewels.

Kate Moss: The supermodel, who co-chaired this event with Naomi, also wore a Givenchy gown. Hers was a beige chiffon and lace Pre-Fall 2015 number with tonal pailettes, styled with a rose-gold Givenchy clutch and Harry Winston jewels. Many words came to mind upon seeing the Great Kate in this dress, but the first one was no. This is quite unflattering. I’m not a fan of the bodice and I’m tempted to say the colour ain’t working, but that could just be because I’m so used to seeing her in all black.

Kylie Minogue: Following her performing at the event, Kylie was spotted wearing a Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2015 Couture hybrid dress. While I love the artistic nature of this piece, I don’t think it translates too well on Kylie. Someone with the sartorial style of Dita von Teese, or the statuesque presence of Karolina Kurkova would’ve sold this to me.

amfAR Hong Kong Gala Red Carpet Roundup

amfAR Hong Kong Gala Red Carpet Roundup

A host of stars joined Gwyneth Paltrow, Victoria Beckham and Carina Lau for the 2015 amfAR Hong Kong Gala held at Shaw Studios on Saturday (March 14) in Hong Kong.

Naomi Campbell: The model also wore a Marc Jacobs Fall 2015 look, selecting a burgundy crepe de chine gown with nail head detailing which she styled with a black and red Christian Louboutin clutch and Harry Winston jewels. I really love the rich Bollywood vibe I am getting from this look, but I can’t say I’m too fond of the styling.

Kate Moss: Decked out in Harry Winston jewels, the model wore a Marc Jacobs black silk tulle dress with sequin detailing from the Fall 2015 collection, which she styled with a feathered rather than a fur accessory.

Carina Lau In Schiaparelli Couture – amfAR Hong Kong Gala

Carina Lau In Schiaparelli Couture - amfAR Hong Kong Gala

Carina Lau attended the 2015 amfAR Hong Kong Gala held at Shaw Studios on Saturday (March 14) in Hong Kong.

The Asian actress wore a Schiaparelli Spring 2015 Couture long trompe l’oeil coral gown with crystal hearts to form a necklace, plus the look was embroidered with printed hands at the back which caught the eye of Mrs Beckham.

This floor-grazing design is a true reflection of the brand’s elegant modernity. Cut with a high neckline and a streamlined silhouette, this gown serves to elongate and flatter in one effortless step. Even those who usually can’t get on board with satin dresses, may find themselves considering this for BDOTW.

Roger Vivier clutch and complementary jewels rounded out the look.

Victoria Beckham attended the 2015 amfAR Hong Kong Gala held at Shaw Studios on Saturday (March 14) in Hong Kong.

The designer wore an immaculately clean-cut Spring 2015 dress with a slight authoritarian aura, oozing with innate feminine grace.

I love this look for its modern-minimalist charms, yet the look remains inherently slick and composed.

Victoria decided to match her shoes to her dress, sweeping her hair into a chic updo and opting for the same smoky eye makeup you guys didn’t favour in her last look.

2015 amfAR New York Gala Red Carpet Roundup

2015 amfAR New York Gala Red Carpet Roundup

Here is a quick roundup of some of the other attendees at the 2015 amfAR New York Gala at Cipriani Wall Street on Wednesday (February 11) in New York City.

Kendall Jenner: The model wore a striking red Romona Keveza Fall 2014 sleek asymmetrical gown styled with gold glitter Christian Louboutin ‘Iriza’ pumps and working a Gigi Hadid slicked-back do. You may remember that Rachel McAdams wore this same dress last year.

Toni Garrn: I love Toni but, as beautiful as she looks here, her love for Elie Saab lace gowns is starting to get repetitive. Here she opts for white following black and green offerings in the past. This look was styled with a Rauwolf clutch and Giuseppe Zanotti Design black suede sandal with golden leaf embellishments. If I had access to Elie Saab that’s all I would wear too, but I wish she would consider some of the other dresses on offer. A printed Elie Saab dress wouldn’t go amiss.

Iman: Shutting down the red carpet, the supermodel showed the youngsters how it’s done wearing a striped colourful look from Balmain’s Spring 2015 collection. Oozing natural style of the like the aforementioned could only dream about, this was one of my favourites of the bunch.
