Harper’s BAZAAR Celebrates Icons By Carine Roitfeld Carpet Roundup

Harper's BAZAAR Celebrates Icons By Carine Roitfeld Carpet Roundup

The stars came out for the Harper’s Bazaar Celebrates Icons by Carine Roitfeld event held at The Plaza Hotel in New York City on September 5.

Lily Aldridge: Wearing a red velvet pantsuit from Emilio Pucci’s Fall 2014 collection with an orange, v-neck blouse, Lily shows us mortals how models do fashion. The mix of textures and bright color-blocking are oh-so-chic, while the simple gold accessories and Lily’s barely there makeup and slightly tousled hair complete the ‘models-do-it-better’ effect.

Crystal Renn: Taking a very different approach to the event, Crystal Renn is all about the drama in a gray satin mermaid-shaped Zac Posen gown with matching cape and striking Lorraine Schwartz jewels. To complete the high-fashion, high-drama look, Crystal’s bold brows, deep plum lips and pinned back retro-inspired hair are a stark contrast with her lack of eye makeup.

Hilary Rhoda: The model wore an elegant, boho-inspired beaded gown from Emilio Pucci’s Fall 2014 collection. The belted styling and subtle print kept things casually grounded, along with her simple chignon and fresh skin.


Nicki Minaj: Never one to enter a room subtly, the singer wore a burgundy Marc Jacobs dress accented with studded detailing and nude platform pumps. Her long, sleek hair and bronzed eyes and cheeks help deliver that Nicki attitude we’ve come to expect.

Toni Garrn: The model wore a black and cobalt color-blocked Juan Carlos Obando dress that showed off her enviable figure with a daring, low-cut V-neck and leg slit. She paired the eye-catching dress with black strapped Giuseppe Zanotti shoes and box clutch, Jacquie Aiche earrings and rings and AS29 rings. Long, loose, pushed back hair, nude lips and barely-there makeup complete the look.

Candice Swanepoel: The Victoria’s Secret Angel metallic silver Kaufmanfranco gown styled with a brown belt and turquoise jewelry. While I’m really not feeling the boho-styling of the dress, Candice’s makeup and hair look flawless, as usual.

Carine Roitfeld: The woman of the hour wore a geometric, patchwork-inspired Alexandre Vauthier Fall 2014 Couture gown that shows exactly why she is an icon in the fashion world. Her signature smokey eye and messy waves complete the look.

Karolina Kurkova: A white satin The Row suit over a black bralette, worn with a gold Versace clutch, Tom Ford shoes and delicate Pamela Love and Anna Shefield jewels are all it takes for Karolina to have a stunning red carpet moment. voluminous curls, kohl-lined eyes and a matte red lip complete the killer look.

Alessandra Ambrosio: Taking the word sexy to a whole new level, Alessandra wore an intricately beaded and stitched black gown that shows us exactly why only certain women get to be ‘Angels’. Glowing skin, a bright red lip and stunning emerald and diamond earrings continue the ultra-glam moment created by the gown.

Kendall Jenner: The reality star and up-and-coming model wore an ivory satin Octavio Carlin gown with a knotted sash and train detailing. A simple chignon, smokey eye and deep red lips are classic and elegant.

    Lily and Kendall

    I only love Lily Aldrige, Crystal’s make up is too scary for me and I can’t enjoy her look.
    Lily aldrige is one of my BDOTW.

    Crystal Renn the HORROR!

  4. Alina September 8, 2014 at 2:19 pm #

    Hilary just sells everything to me.

    I probably don’t know anything about fashion I guess because I can’t seem to understand how a woman with a dress that looks like a fashion project gone wrong, awful hair and makeup can be considered a fashion icon. She the hostess and yet she’s the worst dressed in my opinion.
    Hilary is my favorite.

    Was this some promotional event for some tanning product, uh? Crystal’s make up atrocious. Still I like the first row and am okay with the third one. I find Karolina’s look beyond tacky. She usually has more class than that.

    Overall, a bit of a mess. Lily looks great – very unusual combination of colours, but kudos to her for not going down the ultra-sexy usual model fare.

    Crystal Renn + Zac Posen is usually a no-brainer, but she looks really uncomfortable and stiff here, and the hair/makeup seems contrived.

    Candice’s styling took all the glamour out of that gown.

    Kendall’s dress looks cheap.

    I think my favourite is actually Hilary – relaxed, chic, not trying too hard.

    Not much wowed here. i find Carine ridiculously embarrassing. And so sorely disappointed by Karolina Kurkova. She almost always amazes me. not here.
    Candice interests me most.

  9. Tracy L September 8, 2014 at 5:37 am #

    That grey Zac Posen gown and cape are stunning! Just wow!

  10. jenny September 8, 2014 at 5:36 am #

    Lily A never fails to wow in the most understated bohemian glam.
    It’s always reserve but outstanding!

  11. Iris September 8, 2014 at 12:38 am #

    Am I missing something? I’m not wowed by any of these looks, and the ones that are borderline wow let themselves down with bad makeup or styling. Amazing figures yes but I have seen posts of ‘other women’ wearing similar outfits get slaughtered with unflattering comments. Celebrating icons event? I don’t see it.

    Love Lili’s outfit. The contrasting colours could look harsh, but they are beautiful on her. My BDOTW.

    True that these guests do not seem to be going to the same event…

    • Badaboum September 8, 2014 at 9:00 pm #

      Same for Lily Aldrige. She looks fantastic, BDOTW for me too.

  13. DorianGray September 7, 2014 at 10:47 pm #

    Can you please cover Heidi Klum in Versace FW14 @ post show red carpet of America’s Got Talent? She was amazing. Thanks.

  14. Nicky September 7, 2014 at 10:44 pm #

    Lily is stunning. I also love Crystal – but neck down

  15. easyBlake September 7, 2014 at 10:14 pm #

    Lily is my favorite here, followed by Candice, though I think a different belt would’ve suited the tone better, and fewer jewels. Kendall’s look is nice, I just don’t care for the satin fabric. I like Carine’s look for the “audacity”.

  16. Renata September 7, 2014 at 10:01 pm #

    Wow, I actually don’t love any of these looks. Crystal seems a little uncomfortable in hers, it appears she’s sweating like crazy too. Nicki is kinda boring, I don’t like Toni’s hair and makeup, Candice looks crazy with that belt, Karoline pants don’t look like they fit well… I liked Alessandra’s until I realize I could see her panties lol. Kendall’s dress looks SO cheap…

  17. Christine September 7, 2014 at 10:00 pm #

    Crystal is giving me so much YASS in that look. Love. Karolina is working the look to a T. Kendall look nice.

  18. Noemi September 7, 2014 at 9:51 pm #

    Lily Aldridge is probably the classiest one. Carine Roitfeld… wow! Even if somebody thinks that she should cover a bit more… she looks great!

  19. Yunna September 7, 2014 at 9:46 pm #

    Crystal Renn looks amazing! BDOTW.

    why didn’t you talked about lady gaga? lol

  21. Leto September 7, 2014 at 9:11 pm #

    What was the dress code of this event? Alessandra, Nicki and Crystal for example don’t seem to attend the same party…
    I like Lily and Hilary most. Crystal is just too dark, Alessandra tacky and Toni’s hair is awful, as well as her makeup. Karolina also isn’t up to her best. The black bra is a boring choice, something young starlets would choose, and I don’t like the trousers.

  22. pinksugar September 7, 2014 at 9:04 pm #

    Carine is dressed too young for her age as usual, and Alessandra looks left zilch to the imagination. Love Hilary’s dress but hate the black accessories. Minaj actually looks decent and Kendall looks pretty even though that material photographs a bit cheap and shiny.

  23. sophie September 7, 2014 at 9:02 pm #

    I don’t like the knot at Kendall’s crotch. The dress looks cheap. Hilary and Toni look the best.

    Candice’ belt does not work with her gown. Alessandra tried too hard.

    Toni and Karolina are my favourites of the bunch. Not everyone could pull those looks off, but they both look great IMO.

  25. Nat39 September 7, 2014 at 8:54 pm #

    Not too fond of the velvet, but Lily is my fave here – love the contrasting bright colors and the effortlessness of the look. Crystal looks scary.
