Halsey In Georges Hobeika & Julien Macdonald – 2018 amfAR Gala New York

Halsey was a guest performer for the 2018 amfAR Gala New York on Wednesday (February 7), so we were treated to two looks from the singer.

Red Carpet: Slit to the hip-bone gowns never go down too well with the majority, but I do like how this Georges Hobeika Spring 2018 gown was styled with the embellished hosiery on the model. On Halsey it feels like a wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen. Lorraine Schwartz 18 karat white gold and white diamond bow tie earrings and a white diamond dragon fly ring plus Jimmy Choo sandals completed her look.

Performance: Her Julien Macdonald Spring 2018 embellished sheer one-sleeve gown was very much expected. I’m trying to appreciate the artistic nature of it all – and something tells me if this was worn by JLo I would’ve found a way to love it – but it just feels incredibly thirsty, before we even touch on the fact that this has been done to death.

    I’m seriously surprised not a single Halsey look made it onto the 2017 WDOTY list. These… ensembles burn my eyes.

    Both are utterly without taste.

    The first look is like the tacky version of Beyonce’s Oscar 2005 Atelier Versace gown…It’s a pity cause if the slit wasn’t thaaaaat high it could have been a good look.

    both are awful looks made worse by poor execution

    I do not understand the need of all artists … to go nude. They are valued for their work and for their lack of clothes.

    • JHH February 8, 2018 at 4:43 pm #

      Actually, I don’t see all artists going nude, just some, maybe even most, of the female ones and that is a whole other discussion of whether female artists are, in fact, valued for their work, or their looks or a combination of both while male artists can get by on talent alone.

    “We were treated…” Treated you said? To James’ point below about when female performers used to wear clothes, I don’t think it’s only the ones who “can’t sing” who wear as little as possible. To be honest, before Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” video, I’m not sure I remember women singing in their panties. And this is not a castigation, but more of a “musing out loud”. Did it start out as a fashion thing, or an attention thing… this skimpiness on stage/red carpet? Maybe it’s all just fashion evolution? I’m guessing mini skirts when they first began to appear were considered quite risque?

    That second dress would have looked tacky on anyone…. Halsey looks just as desperate as JLO looks when she wears these types of dresses.
    That first dress is horrible; so is her hairstyle.

    The second outfit is great. I don’t understand, why showing skin has to be thirsty. The dress is beautiful and she looks far better in the Macdonald one, than in the Hobeika one. Not a fan of hair tho.

    • Leandra February 8, 2018 at 3:53 pm #

      When the skin is that one at the vaginal area yes, it’s thirsty.

  10. Pheephee February 8, 2018 at 3:13 pm #

    Silly. looks desperate for attention frankly.

  11. Leandra February 8, 2018 at 3:02 pm #

    So thirsty, already reached the point of dehydration.

    She always wears terrible outfits.

  13. Mimi February 8, 2018 at 2:34 pm #

    Leg fatigue, sheer fatigue.

    Remember when female artists used to wear clothes? Whitney, old Mariah, celine dion… Now, it’s like since they can’t sing they need to be half naked. Sick and sad. On topic, both dresses are a mess , the second “dress” being a crime against humanity!

    I’m going to be kind and leave it at “not refined”.

    The first dress WAS a wardrobe malfunction as a man stepped on her dress and VOILA…she wasn’t wearing any underwear thus flashing everyone. The second dress is vulgar and thirsty. Halsey is a very thirsty thirsty woman.

    • Catherine Kallon February 8, 2018 at 4:34 pm #

      I’m not at all surprised

    • JHH February 8, 2018 at 4:40 pm #

      To be fair, she was wearing underwear — very skimpy underwear but underwear nonetheless.

      • meme February 8, 2018 at 6:21 pm #

        Yes, you are right but still it was a vulgar display.

        • JHH February 9, 2018 at 12:57 am #

          Agreed that it was vulgar, but she was not commando.

            Never believe the Daily Mail 🤪😁
