We always have such high hopes for the annual amfAR “Cinema Against AIDS” gala that happens at Cannes. It’s normally a fashion extravaganza and there’s always a celebrity or two who ends up surprising us. This year, some of the picks on this list did surprise us. Because our regular sartorial favorites — like Nina Dobrev (who fell short in an electric blue, sequined Elie Saab column) — didn’t make it, and Kim Kardashian did. Still, we have to give props where they’re due and Kim worked it in this mustard Elie Saab and old Hollywood red lips, The color is perfect against her skin tone, the fit is great and even though the girls and the gams are out to play, it’s still all very tastefully done.
The models also really stood out with Doutzen Kroes wearing a futuristic and very flattering white Versace gown with silver detailing. Irina Shayk was sheer elegance in a sweeping, taupe Roberto Cavalli gown with gorgeous emerald jewelry. Also spotted look their very best were Kylie Minogue in tangerine Emilio Pucci and Rose McGowan who paid homage to her name in a rose-pink Atelier Versace gown with Chopard jewels. Look at the rest of the fabulously dressed stars in our gallery below. We also have one bonus picture for you. She’s not a celebrity, but a celebrity’s fiance but really deserved to be on the best-dressed list as well. Click after the jump to see who she is.
The White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner has really become the hot ticket in town. We already know that Kim Kardashian and Lindsay Lohan got invites, for which they were probably very thankful. Now if only they had dressed with gratitude. We’re definitely not saying that no effort went into putting their looks together. It was just all directed the wrong way for both of them. Lindsay’s black satin halter-necked gown and Kim’s heavy green satin version ended up looking tacky. Sorry, ladies, better luck next time. This was Kim’s second time at the event so she should’ve known what to expect. There were plenty of sartorial winners, though. Charlize Theron, as always, nailed it in an Emilio Pucci lace overlay column with Manolo Blahnik heels and a Judith Leiber clutch. Reese Witherspoon was glam in a black Monique Lhuillier gown and stunning turquoise and emerald drop earrings by Irene Neuwirth. Sofia Vergara and Anna Paquin wore black too, with Vergara picking a black textured brocade David Meister cocktail frock, and Paquin, a Hervé L. Leroux gown.
The list of celebrities is a bit of a roll call, but we’ll try to do justice. There was a fair amount of white that popped up. Claire Danes wore the color through an edgy Vivienne Westwood gown, Malin Akerman wore a slightly peachier version of the shade in a vintage Odicini Couture dress. Eva Longoria wore a shorter, Marchesa cocktail variety, while Ginnifer Goodwin wore a snowy H&M frou-frou long, layered number. The supermodels also picked that color with Irina Shayk looking terrific in a slinky wide-legged jumpsuit and Kate Upton who sadly, ended up looking frumpy in a frilled, lacklustre dress. Dakota Fanning and Zooey Deschanel wore textured pastels; the former with Prada and the latter with Oscar de la Renta. Going in the opposite direction with splashes of color were Elizabeth Banks in vermilion Antonio Berardi peplum gown, Rosario Dawson in an emerald Armani Prive very low-cut dress and Viola Davis in a deep orange Amsale sweeping number. We also loved Kate Hudson‘s sequined purple Jenny Packham gown.
Perhaps the only person who went really crazy with a print was Leslie Mann who picked a wildly floral one-shouldered, Naeem Khan gown. Another woman — who is kind of beyond celebrity — wore the same designer and totally showed up Mann, though. Michelle Obama picked a strapless jazzed-up printed Khan dress and rocked the hell out of everybody. See for yourself in our gallery below.
It was slim pickings out there. The MTV Europe Music AwardsÂ 2011 took place in Belfast, Ireland, yesterday, and the red carpet wasn’t exactly filled with the best fashion. Still, we’re quite happy with this list of best-dressed stars. And to our surprise, Lady Gaga is one of them. We agree that the blue-gray lipstick is a bit much for a normal person. But this is Gaga so it’s tame for her standards, right? More important, look at her dress. It’s almost architectural looking, as if it’s been created from flat silver cubes and way more interesting than what anyone else wore. She wins, period.
The rest of the shortlist includes Selena Gomez who looked beautiful in an ivory, ruffled Marchesa gown with a very sexy back. Irina Shayk wore emerald earrings and a dual-fabric gown with a thigh-high slit, and Hayden Panettiere rocked a Tibi black-and-white silk twill dress. Very French maid, but with a twist. Rounding off the list is Adam Lambert and God bless him for his sky-high quiff and bright blue shoes. Did we get our selection right? Feel free to tell us what you think in our comments section below.
This red carpet looked like a bunch of fun! The Friends With Benefits premiere took place in New York City last night, at the Ziegfeld theatre and the whole cast looked like they were having a complete blast. Mila Kunis looked stunning in red Lanvin and clowned around with an equally gorgeous Emma Stone wore a contrast red-and-pink Giambattista Valli. Justin Timberlake always wears suits brilliantly and this time was no exception. Mila and he look like they have genuine chemistry, FYI. Jenna Elfman, also wore strapless white and can we ask how tall this woman is? We get high heels, but she just towers over everyone!
The premiere brought in a host of other famous faces too. Everyone from sexy Irina Shayk to Gayle King to Gossip Guy, Matthew Settle and bombshell starlet Emmanuelle Chirqui showed up. But one arrival has become possibly our favorite random guest of all time. Michael Bolton! Michael Bolton, you guys! Which means you totally have to take a look at our gallery.
This is the life! The eighteenth annual amfAR Cinema Against AIDS gala took place yesterday at the Cannes Film Festival. The super schmancy event was held at the Hotel Du Cap-Eden-Roc in Antibes, France and involved the usual — gowns and jewelry worth approximately three of our lifetimes! Kirsten Dunst showed up looking as fresh as a daisy, completely unaffected by the rumor that her nighttime partying kept Brangelina up all night.
Janet Jackson looked pretty svelte and rocked some bright blue nail polish! Irina Shayk showed up with a slit cut up till there, while cuties Dev Patel and Frieda Pinto snuggled up for the cameras. Gavin Rossdale and Gwen Stefani added a bit of punk to the proceedings while old hands Goldie Hawn and Brooke Shields looked flawless in dull gold and white respectively. Join us in our envy by taking a look at the photos below. We’re making margaritas!
