The amfAR New York Gala 2016 kicked off the fashion week festivities in New York, and boy, did the fashionistas bring their A-game. This benefit for AIDS research pulls a lot of star power as so many are passionate about the cause. Dressed in their finest, here are our top 10 picks!
Topping the charts is the fashionable femme fatale Blake Lively who waltzed in with hubby Ryan Reynolds, wearing Chanel Haute Couture and gold-studded Christian Louboutin‘s that are to die for (look at the signature red sole peeking out from under there!) The intricate gold embellishment and the cut-out back on the outfit are just killer!
Also putting her back into it, leggy supermodel Adriana Lima almost fires up the red carpet in this bright red, strapless Marchesa gown. And as if that’s not glam enough, she pulled back her hair into the sleekest, sexiest do ever!
Blonde bombshell Heidi Klum looked ravishing in this Zuhair Murad beaded gown. She kept her hair and makeup smart and simple and reminded us all why she’s been around the fashion scene as long as she has!
Model/ actress Emily Ratajkowski (you remember her from Robin Thicke‘s Blurred Lines video) stuns in this sun-tan slip gown by Michael Kors.
Jourdan Dunn gives flower power a new meaning with this beautiful, floral Dolce & Gabbana dress. We especially love the plum/wine colour she picked for her lips and the way her face just glows!
The internet is abuzz with headlines about how supermodel Karlie Kloss threw out the handbook and just follows the beat of her own style drum, so to speak. And we have to agree! She picked this ballsy, black Chanel mini dress and even paired it with fingerless gloves for extra edge. Wow!
Speaking of edgy, Uma Thurman wore a classy cream mid-length shift by Lela Rose sneaking in just the right amount of cleave! Check out those sleeves (and that smouldering stare!)
Paris Hilton looked really elegant channeling some old school Hollywood glam with this Elie Saab floor-length gown. All grown up, isn’t she?
This power-blue Prada (alliteration much?) seems to really bring out Diane Kruger‘s eyes. And that feather-detail is so much fun!
Another Victoria’s Secret angel rounds up our top 10. Chanel Iman wore a super interesting Zuhair Murad jumpsuit with a embroidered, strapless, structured cage bustier and a skirt overlay. And that smoky eye…what a hottie!
So there you have it! The round up of the kick-off party before NYFW! What do you think?
