Diane Kruger in Versace at the NYC amfAR gala: cute or not dressy enough?

The 19th Annual amfAR New York Gala

Here are some photos from last night’s big amfAR gala in New York. There was a great turnout, and it was almost like the big amfAR galas at Cannes. There were SO many models there. I’m not going to get to everybody, just the biggest names. Let’s start with Diane Kruger in this Versace minidress. Most of the women wore full-on gowns, so Diane stood out by going shorter. I also think she stood out because this dress feels less like gala-wear and more like “what you wear to a premiere after-party.” The dress is cute enough, but I would have chosen something different for her for this gala.

Scarlett Johansson wore a custom Atelier Versace tuxedo. She was one of the few (if only?) women in a tux/suit. I like the sharpness of this.

Naomi Campbell in Atelier Versace. Meh. She can wear anything, in any color, but I hate this shade of orange.

Zoë Kravitz in Versace, with her boyfriend Karl Glusman. Again, I’m not into the blonde hair but I like the simplicity of the dress. And Zoe seems really loved up with Karl.

Iman in Zac Posen. Do you realize how unforgiving this dress is? It’s satin, it’s bias-cut, it hugs every curve. And she looks amazing.

Chloë Sevigny in MiuMiu. She’s a national treasure, you guys. I love her.

Ellie Goulding in Jenny Packham Spring 2016. I don’t hate this at all. It depends on who is wearing it though – Packham is allegedly one of Duchess Kate’s favorite designers, and I would hate this on Kate. But on Ellie, it’s pretty sexy and cute.

I feel weird about this, but I don’t hate Victoria Justice’s Marchesa gown at all? This is the second Marchesa gown I’ve seen in a week’s time where I’m like, “Eh, it’s not so bad!” Am I losing my edge??

    Does Diane’s face look different? I would never have guessed that was her.

  2. Locke Lamora says:

    I love the dress and especilly the shoes, but it is a bit too underdressed for a gala. The blonde with dark roots looks awful on everyone and I don’t know why it’s so popular.
    Scarlett’s tux doesn’t look good, there’s something off about it.
    Victoria looks great, and I like the hair. Would loose the necklace.
    Everyone else looks a bit tacky, but Versace looks tacky most of the time.

  3. OriginallyBlue says:

    I think all of them are nice/ok, except Scarlett.

  4. Bridget says:

    The color on Goulding’s dress is atrocious. I can’t believe someone took a multitude of hours to make that.

  5. Adrien says:

    Diane really has the best legs in the biz.

    • Elisa the I. says:

      Right? I love her whole look. Her hair reminds me of Kristen Stewart’s cut last year.

  6. ell says:

    most of these dresses are ugly, except for diane’s and chloe’s.

  7. minx says:

    Kruger’s dress looks like Project Runway, imo. I actually really like Victoria Justice’s, and I’m not one for flowery patterns at all. Scarlett’s does look ill-fitting.

  8. Megan says:

    Naomi Campbell is so gorgeous she could make a burlap sack look stunning.

  9. Lucy says:

    I’m into the Marchesa gown as well! Huh. I guess Victoria is one of those people who can elevate any outfit, even those which are not good. I do love Diane’s and Scarlett’s outfits as well. And Iman looks fantastic! This makes me happy for her.

    Iman <3 <3 <3 <3

    • ShoeAddict says:

      Iman looks absolutely stunning! She is an incredibly beautiful and talented woman and she clearly looks half her age. I cannot imagine many people could pull off that gown but she does it with little to no effort.

  11. QQ says:

    my read on Diane is: She’s feeling herself! and incidentally this is the first thing in a while that she’s worn that Ive been into (looks logical)

    I don’t like something about Scarlett’s Tux and it isnt even the whitewashing ( LOL it works Twice, Bitches!) Its the fabric or the lapel and deffo the pant cut isnt doing it for me

  12. Pandy says:

    I dunno. Not feeling bare legs in NYC in February. It looks silly.

  13. Needlehole says:

    Chloë Sevigny’s dress is the most inappropriate of the lot. Victoria Justice’s Marchesa dress was by far the best.

  14. Chicken says:

    I like Diane’s dress, I like Chloe’s dress, I even like the Marchesa. Ellie Goulding’s is close-but-no-cigar for me, but I can’t get past her face. It looks so full of filler, and I just don’t understand why someone so young would do that. Your face is fine! Leave it alone!

  15. Tania says:

    Sorry, maybe I’m the only one but I’m not loving Diane’s outfit. She looks like she’s wearing a figure skating/gymnast costume. And Iman is gorgeous but looks like the wax version of herself.

  16. detritus says:

    Iman looks like a goddess again, did she sew herself into the dress at the party though? There is zero way she wore that sitting down. Colour is absolutely gorgeous.

    Naomi looms great as always, and she loves a good body con dress.

    Don’t like the exposed lingerie look on the Marchesa, and Diane is embracing the disheveled rock look hard.

  17. Jegede says:

    What is going on with Ellie Goulding’s lips?

  18. phlyfiremama says:

    I think ScarJo and and Iman look incredible~

  19. Anare says:

    Iman is gorgeous. That gown is gorgeous too. But what has she done to her face? The whole thing has been hoisted up way too high. She didn’t need to do that. She was still so beautiful. Now she looks fake. That Marchesa dress doesn’t fit right in the bust and the style and fabric are pedestrian.
