Heidi Klum in Zuhair Murad at the NYFW amfAR gala: tacky or pretty?

2016 amfAR New York Gala
The fashion at the amfAR gala in New York last night was a mixed bag. This is our third post on the event and you can see Kaiser’s other coverage here and here. Heidi Klum looked somewhat tacky in this black sequin full length Zuhair Murad gown with a cape, but that’s what we’ve come to expect from her. At least she wasn’t hanging out of it. This is positively demur for Heidi. Without the cape this might be ok and a pretty standard gala dress.

Karolina Kurkova was in this black culotte jumpsuit which I don’t hate. There’s something fun about it, like you just throw it on and go. This is an “I don’t care much” look.

Here’s Uma Thurman in a white fitted gown with puffy sleeves and a rounded v-neck. I really like this on her, it’s classic with some modern twists and her styling is so pretty. Her hair is a little limp but her makeup is perfect for this look. Check out that tennis bracelet.

Hailey Baldwin was also in white, in a Pamela Roland gown with metallic sequin sleeves. The neckline has a scifi touch but the sleeves are too long. In some photos you can’t see her hands but that looks like it’s part of the design. This would look great with different shoes. Her side braid is really cute.

Charli XCX is giving me Helena Bonham Carter vibes in this giant white off the shoulder gown with ruffles. At first I didn’t like this but I think she’s pulling it off somewhat. It’s a bold look.

Jemima Kirke was a mess in this red unforgiving cap sleeve satin gown. She’s wearing platform shoes with it too.

Speaking of red mess here’s Adriana Lima in Marchesa. The top is too low and the lace scalloping around the leg slit gives it a lingerie feel. Plus it has a giant bow on the back! This is a bad prom dress.

Lauren Cohan is fairing slightly better in this red stripe spaghetti strap gown. That’s a very standard kind of dress design but the bold fabric makes it look fresh. Plus I like the slight mesh fabric around the bustline. Walking Dead comes back Sunday. I can’t wait!

    I do like Uma and Charlie’s dresses. Pretty and interesting. How did they manage to make Adrianna Lima look curve-less (or is she always like that)? The rest are meh.

    • Lirko says:

      That’s the first thing I noticed, too. Is it the dress that makes her look straight up and down, or is she just built that way ? Either way, she’s just amazing.

    • Locke Lamora says:

      She’s built that way. She never had a very defined waist, but it’s pretty much non-existent now. But who cares, she’s still gorgeous.

  2. Nev says:

    Karolina is happening and so nice in person. Just beautiful. Also I find Jemima so gorgeous too.

  3. Kitten says:

    Lauren Cohan’s dress is the only one that I don’t hate. Actually, Uma’s is ok too.

    Adriana Lima is so hilarious with the pose-harding. I think she’s a stunning woman but that dress is all kinds of nope.

  4. QQ says:

    what do you know, this is NOT a Post fuyll of fug, Jemima, Karolina and Adrianna excluded… I mean and in the Scale of Heidi’s dresses this is Positively STUNNING and covered up and like something that MAKES SOME DANG Sense??! ( cause you know she is good for stupid slits, ridiculous hems, terrible fabric for no reason etc!?)

  5. tracking says:

    Uma looks great, no on the rest.

  6. SugarQuill says:

    I did a double take when I saw that first photo of Uma. For a second there, I thought ‘What the eff is J.K. Rowling doing at the NYFW amfAR gala?’.

    The news about the eighth Harry Potter book seems to have left quite an impression on me. 😀

  7. Mgsota says:

    That Marchesa gown on Adriana is the absolute worst looking crap I’ve seen in awhile. It’s horrendous.

  8. CornyBlue says:

    Hailee Baldwin looks like every other blonde in LA. Actually worse.

  9. kri says:

    For some reason, they all remind me of an empty box of Valentine chocolates…when just the wrappers are all that is left. Uma’s dress is the only one with any structure. The rest are just not good.

    • sills says:

      LOL at this perfect description… a lot of crumply, wrinkly, sloppy in this line-up… but Uma’s and Lauren’s dresses looking good (though I didn’t recognize Uma!).

  10. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    Heidi looks great for Heidi.

  11. Specialp says:

    Straight mess all across the board. And other than the fact Hailey abaldwin has a famous dad; why is she an ‘it’ girl??

  12. cleveland girl says:

    Gemima looks like she has been hitting the bong a bit too hard

  13. dawn says:

    Heidi looks great in that dress!

  14. What'sup says:

    Jemima Kirke looks like she needs to shower and iron her clothes.

  15. elle says:

    wow… uma’s face looks different… not in a good way.

  16. Carol says:

    I thought everyone looked really nice until I got to Charli and then the rest were just awful.

  17. Cupcake says:

    Oh god was this the dreadful looks of the gala post. Dreadful.

  18. Kori says:

    I think Heidi’s would look great without the cape. And it would work in a variety of colors. But her fashion sense has gone way down since Seal. She used to have some stunning looks.

  19. Anon says:

    So many awful dresses/styling…..and I just don’t get why?

  20. What's inside says:

    What did Uma do to her face? I was actually shocked for a moment as the lack of recognition, but then could make out some of her features. The dress is fine as well.

  21. Anare says:

    Omg. Fugly looks from start to finish.

  22. Tredd says:

    Heidi, Heidi, Heidi…no one will ever accuse YOU of aging gracefully. Stop starving. It hasn’t looked good on you in a good decade. Stop banging little boys, going topless in public (blech) and being a s*it show parent.
    You insisted on making, what? Twelve kids?
    Go home and fkg RAISE THEM.
