Naomi Campbell In Givenchy Couture – Wedding Gala Dinner

On what has been a supremely bland weekend for fashion, Naomi Campbell has been my saving grace.

She looked stunning despite the hat at the wedding of the Charlene and Albert in Monaco wearing McQueen, but she went one step further at the Gala Dinner.

The supermodel drop-kicked the ball out of the fashion park by looking uber sexy in Givenchy Fall 2009 Couture gown.

Her halterneck ecru gown was embroidered emerald stones which she complemented with matching emerald earrings.

Naomi is the perfect face and body for Givenchy, which was captured in the brands Fall 2011 ad campaign.

    Not featuring anyone else from the wedding?

    I thought the detailing on Maria Margarita’s dress was so gorgeous. XP

    I don’t know what is bothering me about this, but I think it’s that she didn’t pull her hair up.

    Beautiful and stunning! This look is very appropriate for a Monaco wedding folks. Did you see the guest list?!

      Agreed. She wasn’t at the Duchesses wedding in the UK.

    I agree with all the inappropriate comments; whether it was the dinner or ceremony this was still a (royal) wedding. If in doubt, imagine a friend’s reaction if you turned up to her wedding dinner in this. It just proves Naomi is pure ego.

    FC, didn’t you say in you liked the hat/fascinator at the wedding?

  8. Carolina July 4, 2011 at 3:43 am #

    Frederick’s of Hollywood has similar gowns. Not my favorite by a very long shot.

    I think it is not aproppriate, and disrespectfull for this event..

  10. Danika July 4, 2011 at 1:12 am #

    Extremely inappropriate for an event that is honouring a a newlywed couple. Yes she is a supermodel BUT she is also a human who should think about etiquette…

  11. Raquel July 4, 2011 at 1:00 am #

    I don’t care if it was a gala dinner and not the wedding itself, it was a wedding gala dinner, period. I find it incridibly tacky to attend a wedding related event wearing white and not amount of esmeralds in the world can make up for that faux pas. It’s just tacky.

    I don’t like the dress. But even if I did, I don’t find that it was appropriate for an after wedding dinner gala for a royal couple. First of all, it’s white. Second of all, it’s too revealing.
    Wrong dress for the wrong occasion. Waaaay too fashion-y.

    • sydneycheekychic July 4, 2011 at 1:07 am #

      Totally agree… totally inappropriate..

    • Alina July 4, 2011 at 6:56 am #

      I agree with every single word that you’ve wrote.

    While I do think she looks stunning in this gown I find it inappropriate to wear to a wedding, not only because it’s too revealing (but I guess if I had that body I’d want to reveal something too!) but because it’s a long white gown. It doesn’t matter how rich or famous you are, wearing a long white gown to a wedding is a no-no. When you look up close at the green gems on it, it honestly looks like they thought “oh crap! a long white dress to a wedding! let’s add some green jewels on it so it’s not all white”. Her first outfit she wore was fabulous. She should have just stuck with that.

    I don’t like this dress anymore than I liked the McQueen. In both cases, it is not the silhouette of the dress (especially the McQueen, the silhouette was fab). Color, details and accessories put me off of both dresses. The emerald stones look like cheap glass on here. This outfit would look great in Vegas. And I just can’t get with that feathered stole or whatever that wrap is.

  15. Laura July 3, 2011 at 8:56 pm #

    I don’t think it was right to wear this. And when will she take off that wig? The dress looks great on the model. Anyway, the princess still stole the show, and was upstaged by no one.

    • Emi July 3, 2011 at 9:47 pm #

      I agree with you about the wig and the Princess.

  16. Hannah July 3, 2011 at 8:55 pm #

    I just almost died, this is going into my top ten of the year straight away. I have literally been longing for this dress isnce it’s debut at fashion week so logn ago, well mor ethe pink one of the same style, but this one was a close second. Although I never really pictured it on her, she absolutely kills it. Givenchy gowns are never to be underestimated.

    That bottom image is beyond gorgeous – the backdrop only adds to the glamour of this look. I don’t know if it’s appropriate or not (i like Stylish1’s thoughts on this), but it is stunning!

  18. Stylish1 July 3, 2011 at 8:23 pm #

    Oh the glitz & glamour 🙂 I absolutely love this dress and Naomi looks AMAZING.
    Totally appropriate… after all what is a super model who dates a billionaire attending a royal wedding celebration in the playground of The Rich and Famous supposed to wear?

      +1 …If her man didn’t oppose

  19. robbie July 3, 2011 at 8:17 pm #

    how tacky. sorry but far too much flesh/cleavage on show for a wedding event.

    • Ev July 3, 2011 at 9:07 pm #

      I absolutely agree. To me it seems even more revealing because of the contrast between the color of the dress and her skin color. And certainly not appropriate for the royal wedding event.

  20. Henrique July 3, 2011 at 8:09 pm #

    WOW. She looks absolutely gorgeous.

  21. Megan July 3, 2011 at 8:05 pm #

    She looks amazing thank god for her two stunning looks to keep things interesting.

  22. Z FASHION BLOG July 3, 2011 at 8:04 pm #

    Amazing look!
    Naiomi made my week!!

    The floral Givenchy dress she wore to the wedding itself was amazing too!

    • Fashion Critic July 3, 2011 at 8:16 pm #

      That dress turned out to be McQueen

      • Z FASHION BLOG July 4, 2011 at 5:50 am #

        Oh, thanks for the correction.
        It makes much more sense to be a McQueen.

        When everybody said it was a Givenchy, I tried to relate it to any of Tisci’s Couture work, but couldn’t think of anything.

        In any case, it’s a wonderful piece and she looked stunning in it! 🙂

    • artemis July 3, 2011 at 8:27 pm #

      She made my week too;-)..Personally I don’t care If it was appropriate or not..Fashion wise it was amazing!!

  23. Lola July 3, 2011 at 7:41 pm #

    The galla dinner of the of the wedding.

  24. K. July 3, 2011 at 7:41 pm #

    I’m not a fan of Naomi Campbell, to be honest, but I thought she was stunning in her Alexander McQueen gown during the wedding ceremony. Since most of the women were wearing shorter dresses and hers was a floorlength gown, I had been wondering whether Naomi was perhaps already dressed in her evening wear. Now it is pretty obvious, that she wasn’t.

    I like the dress on her – a lot more than on the runway model, actually. Personally, I have to agree though. I don’t think it was very respectful to wear an ecru gown to a royal wedding. I would have loved to see her in something different, preferably a something that was more colourful.

    I have to say though that I don’t think she looks showgirlesque at all. It’s a beautiful gown and she does wear it well – I just think that it isn’t the best choice for attending a wedding that isn’t your own.

    • laura D July 3, 2011 at 10:23 pm #

      I agree entirely. It’s stunning on her… but a bit disrespectful to go so all out flashy and in ecru at the wedding dinner.

  25. Incroyable July 3, 2011 at 7:40 pm #

    OMG the second picture STOLE MY BREATH! Excuse me for a minute while I check in at the pearly gates, as I have been SLAYED!
    Stunning doesn’t suffice.

  26. alexander July 3, 2011 at 7:29 pm #

    Not sure if some of you read the article She was attending the dinner afterwards

  27. molly July 3, 2011 at 7:22 pm #

    She looks great, but to a royal wedding? What was she thinking? But more importantly, how did they let her through the doors? Honestly, she looks like a Las Vegas show girl. Not ok.

    • Fashion Critic July 3, 2011 at 7:25 pm #

      Victoria Silvstedt was at this wedding, so for me it was more a celebrity event

    • Emi July 3, 2011 at 9:43 pm #

      I agree, I’m not a conservative girl, but this is too sexy for a wedding, not because of the white but because it shows too much skins and breasts and she’s not an understated woman. Sorry FC, the fact that David and Victoria were among the guests of the royal wedding of William and Kate made it a celebrity event? In Montecarlo I saw more understated outfits, the english wedding seemed most of all an exhibition of crazy hats. I think you’re a bit biased…

  28. Lola July 3, 2011 at 7:18 pm #

    Sorry the bride of course…

  29. Lola July 3, 2011 at 7:16 pm #

    Allthough she looks stunning she is not appropriate and may be percieved as trying to upstage or outshine the veide. It is not good etiquette to wear white to a wedding.
