Red Carpet Review: The 2015 amFAR Gala

By Posted on 6 Comments 15 views

I’ve missed doing my red carpet reviews enough! I don’t even read about them on other blogs because it pierces through my soul. So as far as I am concerned, no celebrity has hit any carpet since April. I’m glad they all waited for me…lol. Well, amfAR’s 22nd Cinema Against AIDS Gala brought out some of our favourite famous faces yesterday in France and it got me excited! Here’s why:

CK has been pulling all the stops for Kendall Jenner. She wowed in a mauve Calvin Klein Collection crop top and maxi skirt combo. Hot.

Chanel Iman in Zuhair Murad Couture stole the night. Yasssss! Zuhair never fails and Chanel looks right stunning.

Joan Smalls totally slayed this black dress. Dayummm! Hair and makeup for the win.

Not my favourite Jourdan Dunn look but she looks great.

Eva Longoria gave me an Elsa (Frozen) vibe in a soft blue hue in a Geoges Hobeika Couture lace gown.

Best red dress of the evening goes to Lara Lieto in a figure hugging cowl back beaded dress. Wow.

Zoe Kravitz sultry game face stay strong. She contrasted bright red lips against a white dress. Beautiful.

Even though the sheer thing has been over done, I thoroughly love this teal green dress on Irina Shayk. Pure fiyah!

Rita Ora was red hot in a Marchesa floral appliqué ruffle dress.

For Adriana Lima, simply does it. Loved the dress and face being served!

Toni Garn worked a print dress. Look at all that leg!

Karolina Kurkova is known to be a showstopper. Loved her dress.

Karlie Kloss in a Tom Ford sparkly number looked sensational.

Barbara Palvin was hot in a red sheer fitting dress. Want it!

Co-founder of Marchesa, Georgina Chapman brought the floral feels in (what else) a Marchesa dress.

Mary J. Blige wore a strapless column gown. Looking good but I think it’s time to try a new hair colour.

Charli XCX served sultry in a black off-shoulder  Vivienne Westwood Red Label dress. Hmmmmm. She can do better.

Gigi Hadid was white in Tom Ford. Too bad her dress gets lost in that background 🙁

Sienna Miller worked a metallic Ralph Lauren Collection gown. Love the red lip.

Hanne Gaby Odiele and Binx Walton look way too cool.

Diane Kruger went for a couture look in a feather skirt. Interesting.

Michelle Rodriguez’s dress was haute! But I just needed hair and makeup to deliver.

Doutzen Kroes was another lady in red. Love it.

Dita Von Teese stayed true to her aesthetic in Ulyana Sergeenko Couture.

Aishwarya Rai looked pretty in lilac.

Shanina Shaik wore a black sheer lace dress.

Blogger Kristina Bazan looked super cute in a red dress. Such a doll!

Another blogger on the scene was Chiarra Ferragni in a floral sheer dress.

Hofit Golan wore the cutest princess gown ever! Not sure a belt was needed but so pretty!

Natasha Poly wore a black sequin dress. No complaints here.

Are you feeling Melissa Bolona’s ruffle dress? I want her shoes though.

Marion Cotillard in Jean Paul Gaultier Couture did not impress. That shade of green is not flattering on her.

Anja Rubik was another guest in a another garish colour. Is her blue dress electric enough for you?

Mariano Di Vaio looked sharp as a pin in a navy suit.
