Naomi, Rosie & the models at Paris amfAR: who wore Atelier Versace best?

Karlie Kloss

Last night’s amfAR event in Paris was largely attended by models from haute couture Paris fashion week. Most of them came straight from the Atelier Versace show and didn’t change outfits. These dresses look like really expensive boho chic, like the fashion house tried to reimagine A Midsummer Night’s Dream for trust-fund hipsters. Karlie Kloss led the charge with a completely intricate, rose-colored gown with gold, ropey detail. She must have needed double-sided tape to keep that skirt in place. Like most of these dresses, Karlie was overwhelmed by a complicated design.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley can usually work any outfit and doesn’t receive enough credit for doing so. This dress was a complete mess. Versace tried to work a woodsy vibe, but the day-glo colors clashed with the dress design. Rosie could have made the dress look less busy if she wore her hair up. She should have worn her runway look to the event.

Nicky Hilton stood out in a non-Versace ensemble. The leopard-print top and a mint green skirt with matching earrings would have worked better on Rodeo Drive. Nicky is in Paris to complete her wedding dress fittings. She’s getting married on Friday in London (to James Rothschild), and she wouldn’t reveal her bridal designer on the grey carpet. Page Six says Nicky will wear Valentino, and Paris will DJ the shindig.

Back to Verace with Irina Shayk. This is the most practical dress of the bunch. This dress had plenty of peek-a-boos, but no flyaway pieces threatening to expose womanhood.

Naomi Campbell‘s Versace was a rare miss for her. The dress appeared to be tugging in several places and looked uncomfortable. I’m including photos of Doutzen Kroes, Joan Smalls, and Donatella Versace (all in Versace, of course).

    Irina wins by a landslide. She’s a vision of beauty in that gown. I’m envious.

    Irinas dress: the peek a boo’s on the legs puts me in mind of Halloween costume witch dresses. Not a good look!

      +1 although I was reminded of the Jolie-Oscars leg, myself! That said, I like the forst 2 dresses a lot. not because they are stunning haute couture, but they are interesting and will translate into some fun ready to wear for the plebs like me.

    “Page Six says Nicky will wear Valentino, and Paris will DJ the shindig….”

    You stay classy Paris!

    OMG. Nicky manage to keep this marriage somewhat in check. But she is allowing Paris to “DJ”? Please tell me this is not true. I bet her future in-laws are thrilled with that. Because Paris does not have the ability to let anyone else shine, at an public event. But her self. Even at her own sisters wedding.

    So I will look forward to the British tabloids. Telling the tales. Of how crass Paris behaved, at the Rothschild wedding. I bet she gives them all a little bare crotch flash from the DJ booth.

      LOL at Paris DJing. And LOL at Nicky still stuck as second banana, even at her own wedding.

    All of these dresses are ugly. but Karlie looks the best. She’s the prettiest of the bunch too, along with Naomi.

      DM (I think) had pictures of all the dresses at the fashion show (Kendall was featured of course) and I agree. The dresses were ugly.

    What? Leo wasn’t there?

    All tacky as hell. Naomi’s dress – how much chest can you show? Jeez. Those headdresses are awful too. Nicky Hilton FTW, by default although her tacky top belongs on a Real Housewife

  7. meme says:

    whoa, those are some hideous dresses. Except for Doutzen. The woman is a goddess. My girl crush.

  8. lucy2 says:

    I don’t like any of these looks.

  9. Bread and Circuses says:

    Irina Shayk looks best, but I honestly kind of like Karlie Kloss’ pink patchwork-scarf dress–although less when I see it from the side and realize how much spray adhesive they must have used to keep it in place.
