Fashion Week is upon us, and to celebrate, amfAR hosted a New York Gala to kick off the festivities! Let’s take a look at who popped and who wasn’t so hot:
Zoe Saldana looked cute as a button in a Louis Vuitton Pre Fall 2010 print dress. Though the frock boasts quite the conservative neckline, the A-line skirt and cinched waist more than make up for it. Not quite sure how she’s rocking with those Jimmy Choo Quinze sandals in the New York slushy snow, but I’m presuming practicality goes out the window for an A-list actress with car service. Hot!
Our other Zoe went for a more simple aura in a strapless satin black dress worn with opaque tights and a pair of Prada sandals that it girl Shala Monroque has been known to sport. Ms. Kravitz is certainly beautiful, but it seems she didn’t exert much effort with this get up. The dress is…wrinkled. Hmm….
Supermodel Iman brought it back in a lovely floor length emerald gown from Angel Sanchez’s Resort 2010 collection. This is how you age gracefully. Simple jewelry, lovely manicure, high wattage smile. Hot!
Jay Alexander must be very happy about his new role on ANTM, as the reality TV regular was all smiles on the red carpet. Though we’ve seen him in some ridiculous outfits in our day, he looked clean, fresh, and hot for last night’s event. At first glance Ms. Jay seems to be rocking a regular old suit, but he brought his singular flair by wearing luxurious velvet, a flower pin on his lapel, and blinged out loafers. Werq!
I’m a proper stan for Chloe Sevigny’s style, and love the quirky way she works off the runway looks. Last night, however, I was disappointed in her choice. The ruffles are cute, but where are the colors, patterns, and typical glam? Chloe looks sad with this outfit, and so am I. Hmmm…
Lastly, what would a fashion event be without Lady Gaga? The creative chanteuse posed on the carpet (with Cyndi Lauper, who was rocking a pair of those popular Alexander McQueen leggings) in an outfit that must have been a tribute to the ice in New York. She wore an embellished bikini over a white body stocking, and topped everything off with an appliquéd captain’s hat and jacket. She even pasted a few embellishments on her face. What can I say? Gaga always manages to marry crazy with sexy and cool and we can’t deny she has the body to pull this off. For this, Gaga is a hot in my book. Might I add that though 50 something, Ms. Cindi is rocking the snuff out of those McQueen stunners? She might have beat out both Rihanna and Nicki Minaj in the “Who Wore it Better” contest.
What do you think?
