Considering we’ve had our fair share of amfAR stories on this blog, we’ve realized it’s the place to really push for fashion. Want to change up your look? This is the place? Want to show off fabulous gowns by the really serious designers? Definitely the space. Yesterday’s amfAR gala, held at Cipriani’s Wall Street in New York, was the ideal space to really class things up, considering it was a party to kick off Fall 2013 edition of Fashion Week. And where there’s fashion, there’s Sarah Jessica Parker. We’re still trying to wrap our heads around her Maison Martin Margiela Spring 2013 Couture gown. We love the texture and the fuchsia but are still trying to “get” the black and white skinny, long scarf. The whole thing seems to be swamping her figure. Heidi Klum, as expected, went the sexy route wearing a plunging, shimmering Michael Kors black gown buffed up with Lorraine Schwartz jewelry. The two real surprises were Ashley Greene and Lindsay Lohan. Ashley is stunning but she regularly gets one element of her look wrong. Not this time, we thought she looked like a goddess in her white Giambattista Valli gown with the gold laurel leaf belt. The hair worked. The makeup worked. Everything worked. Then there was Lindsay who wore a sparkly, tasseled Theia Spring 2011 gown. Let’s just ignore her hair for a second, because she looks pretty damn okay, right? The gown’s sexy and her body looks good. This is a huge step forward! Now if only her hair and makeup would follow suit — we’d be happy campers.
