amfAR’s 20th Annual Cinema Against AIDS Menswear Round Up

amfar men 2

There were many lovely ladies at the amfAR’s 20th Annual Cinema Against AIDS yesterday evening. Here is a look at the men.

Adrien Brody: The actor wore a Roberto Cavalli tuxedo. I love everything about this look. Looking very debonair, Adrien donned a white tuxedo jacket with a black satin shawl collar, styled with shiny black pants and a unique white-and-black shirt, topped off with Cavalli loafers. Even those of you who don’t love shiny suits can’t help but admire this amazing suit.

Andres Velencoso: The Spanish model, aka Kylie Minogue’s boyfriend, also opted for a Cavalli suit. This classic look, with a black satin shawl collar and bow tie, was styled with patent-leather shoes.

Jeremy Renner: The actor looked very handsome wearing a one-button Lanvin tuxedo with black satin peak lapels, a white cotton dress shirt, a black satin bow tie, a white cotton pocket square, and black patent-leather lace-up dress shoes.

Zachary Quinto: The ‘Star Trek’ actor wore a black Giorgio Armani tuxedo. The classic look featured a black satin shawl collar – the menswear trend of the night – and a satin trim along his trousers.

Even though I love all four looks for being so well tailored and fitted, Adrien’s unique take totally wins me over.

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?

Models @ amfAR’s 20th Annual Cinema Against AIDS

Models @ amfar 1

Here is a round up of all the models who took to the red carpet on Thursday evening for the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala held at Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Cap d’Antibes, France on Thursday evening before taking to the runway for the fashion show.

Karolina Kurkova: Cavalli created an uber hot black cut-out gown for the sensational Kurkova. This woman couldn’t look bad if she tried. Aside from the serpent bracelet, she let the gown do all the talking…and it’s sayin’ “don’t I look hot?”

Joan Smalls: The gorgeous model worked a Givenchy Fall 2013 floral sequin sheer gown with a sheer sweater with leather appliqués. I had expected Ciara to have worn one of these looks by now. I didn’t have high hopes for this portion of the collection, but it does translate rather nicely off the runway. I am intrigued to see the look sans sweater.

Karlie Kloss: Is she just not trying anymore? The model wore a Louis Vuitton Pre-Fall 2013 look which is uber chic, but just not enough for a gala event. She could’ve worn anything she wanted, so I wonder why she chose to wear this. Maybe she just wanted to be less obvious like many of her fellow models at this event.

Milla Jovovich In Valentino Couture – amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala

Milla Jovovich In Valentino Couture - amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala

Ah, so this is what redemption looks like.

Milla Jovovich has been well below par during Cannes Film Festival, however, she made up for it on Thursday evening on the red carpet for the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala held at Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Cap d’Antibes, France.

The model/actress selected a stunning Valentino Spring 2013 Couture gown.

Her delicate blush gown with shimmering floral beaded embroidery, a plunging neckline and tiered ruffled skirt is by far her best look.

Sometimes her look can come off quite harsh, but here she is quite the opposite.

A Jimmy Choo ‘Carmen’ clutch, David Yurman jewels including green beryl and diamond drop earrings and a cognac diamond cuff complemented her look perfectly, with an additional sapphire cuff with a rubellite and diamond ring providing a nice pop of colour.

A braided updo and a shimmering pink lip colour completed her look.

Much improved, or is Milla having an off year here at Cannes?

Kylie Mingoue was also part of Roberto Cavalli’s entourage for the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala held at Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Cap d’Antibes, France on Thursday evening.

Having partied on the designer’s boat Wednesday night, the Australian singer selected a classic Cavalli gown with a plunging neckline, thigh-high slit, embellishments and cut-out details.

Same tried and tested formula, yet, before us lays a totally different gown.

Gold accessories including Chopard jewels completed her look.

Zhang Ziyi In Giambattista Valli Couture – amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala

Zhang Ziyi took to the red carpet again this evening for the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala held at Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Cap d’Antibes, France.

She wore a Giambattista Valli Spring 2013 Couture zebra print dress with a tulle black skirt draping from the peplum-like detail.

I was trying to figure out what was bothering me about the look — then I realised it was the skirt.

The black tulle skirt was equally distributed on the runway, but stops short at the front on Zhang, losing some of the allure of the runway piece as Zhang’s resembles a mullet dress.

Mouawad fine jewelery, Ferragamo black peep-toes with gold piping and a black clutch completed her look.

Paz Vega kept it simple this evening for the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala held at Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Cap d’Antibes, France on Thursday evening..

The Spanish beauty wore a Vionnet Spring 2013 black jersey spaghetti strap dress which featured a deep plunging neckline.

I was really expecting a major comeback look tonight, but this dress isn’t really speaking to me like so many of her other looks in the past. It’s sad to say, but this look is easily forgettable.

The heavy eye makeup and red lip colour also feel too harsh.

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

After a flirtation with two back-to-back red looks, it was back to black for Dita von Teese who attended the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala held at Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Cap d’Antibes, France on Thursday evening.

The burlesque star wore a black velvet Ulyana Sergeenko Couture gown.

This gown, with a nipped in waist and voluminous skirt, has a vintage vibe which no doubt instantly spoke to Dita; however, I wish the gown was sleeveless.

Pearl accented Chopard earrings and black satin-peep-toes completed her look.
