Harper’s BAZAAR Celebrates ‘ICONS By Carine Roitfeld’

Harper's BAZAAR Celebrates 'ICONS By Carine Roitfeld'

The glam guest list of models, music royalty, and more was almost impossibly long for Harper’s BAZAAR’s celebration of ‘ICONS by Carine Roitfeld’ during New York Fashion Week on Friday (September 7).

Sara Sampaio: The model shone wore a scintillating sequin Maison Alexandrine gown with Christian Louboutin heels and bombshell waves.

Cardi B: Extravagance is generally the singer’s middle name, and especially so in this Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2018 extravaganza of ruffles and jewels.

Kendall Jenner: She showed off the avant-garde mood of the Vera Wang Collection Fall 2018 collection, which was partially modeled after knights’ armor. Lorraine Schwartz jewels complemented the exaggerated sleeves and flared pants that she wears in true model form.

Nicki Minaj: Walking on the wild side with bleach-blonde locks to match, the rapper relied on the power of animal print in this Alexandre Vauthier gown. It was eye-popping — more so, because it looked like any minute, she might pop out of the bodice that seemed a size too small.

Adriana Lima: The signature corset design immediately pegged this simply glam, glittery gown as a Vivienne Westwood Couture design. She styled it with sleek locks and Gianvito Rossi stilettos.

Bella Hadid: Cue the eye rolls, with this look that put the ‘body’ in ‘bodysuit.’ Lorraine Schwartz jewels completed the second-skin ensemble.

Karen Elson: Dark emerald green is always Karen’s colour, as this Michael Kors Collection rosette gown was a striking contrast to her flame-red curls.

Shanina Shaik: Shanina’s bronzed skin was almost as lustrous as her golden Pamela Dennis gown and Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

Romee Strijd: The slit-to-there Balmain sequin trench ensured that there was still plenty of allure on display. Nicholas Kirkwood ‘Mira Pearl’ sandals completed the dazzling coat dress.

Lais Ribeiro: This overtly sexy David Koma Fall 2018 dress relied on the ubiquitous sheer-and-lace appeal with Giuseppe Zanotti sandals to finish the been-there-seen-that look.

Gigi Hadid: While her sister, Bella, was one of the most provocatively dressed, Gigi was the exact opposite with her far more conservative Vivienne Westwood Fall 2017 tulle party dress, edged up with boots.

Ashlee Simpson: Ashlee also played with tulle in this Galia Lahav Couture ensemble that fused embellished femininity with a darker princess mood and rock-chic leather edge.

Winnie Harlow: This goldenrod hue of this Ester Abner gown was lovely. I just wish it had been a bit more pressed, as the satin shows every crease. A few Lorraine Schwartz jewels added additional sparkle.

Jasmine Sanders: This Ermanno Scervino dress had a tattered princess-meets-lingerie vibe. I would have selected a sandal, though, as the pumps feel out of place.

Sarkis: The illusion effect of this lavender Paolo Sebastian gown seems a bit dated and pageant-like. The APM Monaco jewels were lovely, but I have to take issue with the dark purple bag and yellow pedicure that cheapened the look.

Sofia Carson: She did well to manage the ruffles and layers of this baby-doll Giambattista Valli Spring 2018 dress, paired with Hearts On Fire earrings. But, her hair and makeup were rather heavily styled, creating a rather mature effect for such a youthful frock.

Victoria Justice: How much fringe is too much? Exhibit A: This Paolo Sebastian gown that would have done well to lose the shoulder and hip swishers. She accessorised with an overly dramatic oxblood lip and APM Monaco jewels.

Heidi Klum: This Matičevski design was definitely a Heidi look, with its leggy emphasis and a certain overdone aesthetic in the long, played-out train. Lorraine Schwartz jewels completed the dress.

Leomie Anderson: At least this Alexandrine coral-patterned gown offered a different variation on the sheer-slit-and-shine trend. Christian Louboutin pumps rounded it out.

Josephine Skriver: The cowl-neck, satin Vatanika dress styled with Rene Caovilla wrap sandals seemed like a last-minute, outdated look for such a style-forward night.

Abbey Lee: This Saint Laurent by Anthony Vaccarello mini had maximum rock-star glam — even if I could have done without the scarf.

Shay Mitchell: Deceptively sexy, this long-sleeve Julien Macdonald gown still left little to the imagination with its peek-a-boo netting and body-hugging silhouette. Le Vian diamond earrings and rings along with Kallati and Mattia Cielo diamond rings imparted dazzle to almost every finger.

Slick Woods: Even though she flaunted her baby bump in this Nina Ricci Fall 2018 plunge gown, her lavender eyebrows were just as eye-catching.

Alek Wek: This provocative Calvin Klein 205W39NYC dress had a boob bib that looked primed and ready for a nip slip.

Jasmine Tookes: This simple Leilou by Alex cropped suit paired with John Hardy jewels was like a breath of fresh air amidst the try-hard moments of the night.

Angela Sarafyan: While sweet in theory, the proportions of this Lela Rose Resort 2019 embroidered dress felt rather awkward. It’s almost as if the hem needed to be shortened a few inches especially to accommodate the metallic Aldo pumps. Anabela Chan jewels completed the look.

Christina Aguilera: Masquerading as a bird, Christina took flight in an Andreas Kronthaler for Vivienne Westwood Fall 2018 design before taking to the stage to perform.

Suki Waterhouse: Suki totally had me believing every second of this quirky-cool, mismatched Marni dress styled with pink pumps and a cherry-red Charlotte Olympia clutch.

Karolina Kurkova: The supermodel kind of phoned it in with this glittery Dundas D5 mini and Roger Vivier sandals — not that it didn’t look good on her and her gams.

Abby Champion: The fuchsia hue of this Dannijo Fall 2018 gown had me at hello. But, other than that, the bias-cut dress was nothing to write home about.

Hilary Rhoda: This Markarian Pre-Fall 2018 dress was much in keeping with the model’s tailored-chic aesthetic.

Larsen Thompson: This Paco Rabanne mirrored design, paired with Stuart Weitzman sandals, was born ready for the disco dance floor.

Nadine Leopold: Yet another satin dress moment, Nadine donned a Pamela Dennis liquid-silver design wtih Manolo Blahnik shoes, 64Facets jewels, and a Tyler Ellis clutch.

Danielle Herrington: Danielle let her décolletage do the talking in this white Cushnie et Ochs gown styled with a Nancy Gonzalez bag, Jacob & Co. jewels, and Gianvito Rossi sandals.

Maria Borges: This Ulyana Sergeenko Fall 2017 Couture robe, bralette, and shorts had a fancy boudoir vibe.

Devon Windsor: This Zuhair Murad Spring 2018 Couture gown will likely resonate as familiar with the signature pattern motif. But, it fit her like a beautiful glove, and for that, it makes the grade in my book.

Tiffany Haddish: I cannot see a full view of her Giuseppe Zanotti shoes, but I have a feeling they are the only element I’d keep of this ensemble that is so drab and aging despite its metallic fabric.

Alessandra Ambrosio: This Zuhair Murad Spring 2018 Couture two-piece gown is made for Alessandra with its boho-glam mood and seductively sassy appeal. She accessorised with a fiery red lip, Giuseppe Zanotti sandals and Ofira jewels.

Peyton List: The Hearts On Fire jewels get a pass; the rest is a hard no.

    I actually enjoy several of these looks, but I was surprisingly most impressed with Cardi. I am here for her glamour transformation. Bella Hadid as usual just looks vulgar and desperate. One day she will learn the mile long crotch/boobs hanging out thing she keeps doing looks good on literally no one.

    Love Christina’s look

  3. Amy September 10, 2018 at 11:30 pm #

    Sara looks lovely.
    Bella: WDOTY nominee for real

  4. Nadine Hughey September 10, 2018 at 10:35 pm #

    Wonder if Bella would’ve worn that at a Vogue event…I think that’s the nicest thing I can say about it. Loving Suki & Christina.

  5. Fee September 10, 2018 at 3:41 am #

    I love Suki’s look. The rest I will forget in no time.

  6. brat September 10, 2018 at 3:19 am #

    How didn’t Kelly Rowland not make this round up she was the best-dressed of this group.

    HOW?

  7. TinaL September 10, 2018 at 3:08 am #

    None

  8. Hailey September 10, 2018 at 3:02 am #

    I somehow like both Nicki and Bella’s outfits…so now I’m questioning my sanity! Also love Suki’s outfit, so chic!

    • Hailey September 10, 2018 at 3:11 am #

      Ugh I meant Cardi not Nicki! The fight got me mixed up!

  9. Jerusa Herrera September 10, 2018 at 12:42 am #

    Alessandra, Jasmine and Sara.

    Bella and Nikki WDOTY nominees !!

    Thank you for the round up. Amazing job.

    PD. How different this group from RL 50 years anniversary show 😐

  10. Bea September 9, 2018 at 10:51 pm #

    Sara looks beautiful.

    Bella.. what was she thinking?

    • Fiona-Brasil September 10, 2018 at 2:19 am #

      +1

  11. Isabela September 9, 2018 at 9:36 pm #

    I don’t hate Bella Hadid like everyone here, but this is definitely WDOTY. I can’t imagine anything worst honestly.

    • TeaAtTwo September 9, 2018 at 10:00 pm #

      I don’t hate Bella, when she gets it right I praise her. Her body shape looks killer but the outfit is tacky and thirsty as hell.

      • bisbee September 10, 2018 at 12:26 pm #

        I think Bella’s body shape looks so odd…she almost looks like she was built by a demented scientist. Horrible.

        • TeaAtTwo September 10, 2018 at 4:06 pm #

          The top looks like it has a corset and the pants are padded.

  12. devrikalista September 9, 2018 at 9:32 pm #

    I don’t think I’ve ever laughed so hard as I kept scrolling down into each new disaster. Given the antics at the party, I think I would have paid good money to just sit quietly in a corner and watch the whole messy event unfold…

    Thank you for the very amusing descriptions!

    • meme September 9, 2018 at 11:02 pm #

      😝😝😝😝. Sara and Gigi are the only ones I didn’t laugh at. Bella , Cristina and Peyton look particularly atrocious.

  13. brat September 9, 2018 at 9:18 pm #

    Sarah, Nadine and Jasmine are my favs. All elegant, simple and classic.

    Kendall is working that crazy look, I’m rather taken with it.

    Cardi’s look was far superior to Nikki Minaj, not that either were that great. Nikki’s face looks warped, probably her Grinch heart.

    Shay Mitchell’s gown looked amazing on her IG, she deserves an honorable mention.

  14. Vizual Ninja September 9, 2018 at 8:53 pm #

    What a mess..Sara and Jasmine are the only ones I like here

  15. Caroline September 9, 2018 at 8:50 pm #

    Bella is WDOTY. I’m sick of her.

    • meme September 10, 2018 at 3:01 pm #

      +1 and 2 and 3 and 4 LOL

  16. Caroline September 9, 2018 at 8:50 pm #

    Sara, Adriana, Jasmine, Angela and Danielle.

  17. Lena September 9, 2018 at 8:47 pm #

    Check out Gaga’s recent looks in Toronto pleaaaase

  18. Chris September 9, 2018 at 8:30 pm #

    Bella’s and Nicki’s looks are WDOTY material…
    Kendall doesn’t pull her look off. Maybe without the sleeves, but they’re way too much.
    Sara looks gorgeous. And I’m intrigued by Christina Aguilera’s look as well, something different, I think she pulls it off.

  19. TeaAtTwo September 9, 2018 at 8:22 pm #

    What poorly turned out group. For the colour scheme I’d just go for Karen’s look.
