Adriana Lima In Alberta Ferretti – II BrazilFoundation Gala Miami

Adriana Lima In Alberta Ferretti - II BrazilFoundation Gala Miami

Adriana Lima attended the II BrazilFoundation Gala Miami 2013 held at Vizcaya Museum & Gardens in Miami, Florida yesterday evening.

It appears that the trend to wear a dress backwards is still going strong.

She took to the red carpet wearing an Alberta Ferretti Spring 2012 white gown backwards.


The white sleeveless gown with geometric cut-outs on a nude underlay has a high neckline and this just won’t do for a glamazon like Adriana, who has made her living showcasing her cleavage as a Victoria’s Secret model, so she did the old switcheroo to make her cowl-back gown a cowl-front gown.

Do you like how Adriana has made this gown look uber sexy, or has she ruined it for you?

You may remember that Jada Pinkett-Smith wore this same gown, the right way, back in May last year in Tokyo.

    I liked this dress so much more on Jada, I thought she looked elegant and beautiful. I even thought Jada looked better than the runway model. While I don’t find this look too tacky or too sexy, it is when you compare it to Jada.

    no faulting her. we all have our stereotypes on VS models but her look is flawless here. People would not even realized she wore it back to front because she wore it so well ! I love the lack of accessories and the side swept hair.. and that tan on her is just beautiful. Stunning without even trying.

    It’s too much, like it on Jada much better!

    The fact that it appears Adriana is not wearing any underwear here is tasteless all by itself, but there really is something extra desperate about someone feeling the need to put a dress on backwards just to show cleavage. Unsurprisingly, the dress sits well neither at the front or the back.

    It’s frankly quite baffling. Goodness knows she has the body to pull this dress off the right way around…

    Next time, just get a dress with a real v-neck, okay?

    Jada looked very elegant, and the dress looked lined on her! On Adriana it doesn’t! Plus back to front it’s just sleazy. Sorry but this look is just trash.

    She looks like a porn star! Sorry to be rude…

    • adrian March 28, 2013 at 8:31 pm #

      you say rude, I say accurate observation.

      • Eirwen March 29, 2013 at 2:10 am #

        I’ll be rude too and make another accurate observation: she makes me feel ashamed of being Brazilian =(

    If no one had told me she was wearing the gown backwards, I wouldn’t have known. I think she looks great.

    • Anj March 28, 2013 at 4:37 pm #

      Agree. I think her version looks so much better than the runway model’s. Jada looked amazing as well because she actually has curves. Either version looks great as long as you have the body for it.

    I will never understand why celebs wear dresses back to front.

    Why not just wear a cowl-front dress to behind with?

  9. Christine March 28, 2013 at 1:28 pm #

    Jada wore it best. Although, Adriana looks pretty. I prefer how Jada styled the look.

  10. katie March 28, 2013 at 12:49 pm #

    She is so beautiful she can make anything look good, the dress would not be my favourite ever but she looks fantastic none the less

    I don’t like it backwards. It makes the material bunch in weird places on both the front and the back. Also, I don’t like the sheer part in the back. I feel like if she bends or pulls the dress down an inch or two, her butt crack will be showing.

  12. Rashmi March 28, 2013 at 12:15 pm #

    Oh she ruined it. Look at how Jade wore it, correct and Perfect! She looked so elegant.

    If you want to highlight your some great parts more, get a dress that does that work, why ruin something else.

    The fit is terrible. I don’t mind the “backwards” thing, it looks ok

    • Catherine Kallon March 28, 2013 at 12:05 pm #

      Yes, the fit is off as a result of her wearing the dress backwards. There is more material at the front where her derrière should be

    This looks tacky! She would look much more classy if she would wore the dress the right way.

    Jada wore this gown MUCH better, she looked so elegant, I absolutely loved it on her. On Adriana, however, I dislike the plunging neckline a lot, so it’s a no from me.

    • Marybeth March 28, 2013 at 4:01 pm #

      AMEN. On Jada the look was sleek, interesting, and classy. On Adriana, the dress has a run-of-the-mill, Hollywood-sexpot vibe.

    She looked drop dead gorgerous. And it`s nice to see her wear a floor length dress.

  17. Fiona-Brasil March 28, 2013 at 11:29 am #

    She is just stunning and my favourite VS model by far…So she can wear
    the dress backwards.By the way, I hate the dress one way or another.
