gown by Emilio Pucci, purse by Jimmy Choo
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley led the pack of models and actresses (and models-turned-actresses) who turned things up at the amfAR gala. Looking good for a good cause? That’s my kind of diva. Rosie is positively glowing in this mustard yellow gown, which is draped to perfection. Let’s get another glimpse:
The rose-gold straps in the back are a brilliant detail. This is all-around divine.

I always see Jacquelyn on the runway, but I don’t usually catch her on the red carpet. Kudos to Ms. Jablonski for working the shit out of this dress like it’s her job. Because it is.
gown by Givenchy
A classic gown, revved up with that masterpiece of a necklace. Both the diamonds and the black fabric make her hair pop even more than usual. It’s almost impossible to go wrong with that recipe.
DITA VON TEESE
gown by Blumarine
This looks like the lingerie of a 1930s Hollywood star, and that is most definitely a compliment. I don’t love the clutch, but everything else is too glamorous for me to care.
gown by Fitriani
It’s not such an unusual dress, but its details make it feel so modern. I didn’t love the neckline at first, but I think it works with the rest of the silhouette. And the styling is perfect.
gown by Armani Privé
Delicate and stunning. I love how the beading cascades down into that ombre effect.
gown by IRFE
The necklace is way too much with that neckline, and nothing will make me like this hair style, but at least Coco brought some badassery to an event otherwise filled with romantic, ethereal gowns. I think the exposed zippers are a bit dated, but the dress has a hell of a lot of personality.
gown by Chanel
I love the waves on this gown, even if they make me kind of dizzy when I scroll too fast. This could have easily been a best-dressed contender, but I’m not sold on the styling. Every piece of jewelry she’s wearing looks like it belongs with a different outfit, and her sandals make me sad.
gown by Reem Acra, purse by Jimmy Choo
She looks like a mermaid. In spite of how much I hate mermaid gowns, looking like a mermaid while not wearing a mermaid gown is actually a wonderful thing. She makes me want to steal her voice and use it to hit on Prince Eric.
gown by Alexander McQueen
I know the sheer runway version of this gown makes it impractical (that’s kind of why it was my red carpet prediction for Rooney Mara, who tends towards white impractical gowns). But adding a full-body lining also means you can barely see the embroidery that makes it beautiful. It’s also dragging on the floor in a really sad way – not only is it too long, but it’s missing the feathers that adorned the bottom of the runway version. I think those would have helped Marion not look like a giant fucking doily.
gown by Marni, purse by Zagliani
Another strapless satin gown with a peplum? Move along, Natasha. We’ve got more interesting shit to discuss.
gown by Maxime Simoëns
I must say, the former First Lady of France looks magnificent in that asymmetrical bodice. A simpler necklace might have worked better, but she’s got that innate I-look-flawless-in-everything quality that all French women (and men, for that matter) seem to have.
gown by Atelier Versace, shoes by Christian Louboutin
Slutty prom gown. I mean, it’s perfect for Heidi, but it’s a slutty prom gown.
gown by Juan Carlos Obando
Love the color and the way the sash ties around her waist, but that hemline is in desperate need of some tailoring.
gown by Roberto Cavalli, purse by Salvatore Ferragamo
I can’t say this is my taste, and I don’t know why the bottom of her gown appears to have been dipped in tar. But Sharon Stone is 56 fucking years old and looks a hell of a lot better in those tummy cut-outs than I would. Here’s to you, Sharon Stone, you fabulous ageless vampire.
gown by Atelier Versace, purse by Versace, shoes by Jimmy Choo
I kind of hate everything about this, but Jane Fonda is 76 and thus gets to wear as much illusion netting and baby pink tinsel as she damn well pleases.
gown by Roberto Cavalli, shoes by Jimmy Choo
Alessandra, you are not an old lady and thus your ice-dancer-goes-to-Miami outfit will not be excused.
gown and shoes by Atelier Versace
I like cut-outs and asymmetry as much as the next girl. But Irina just looks like she got stuck halfway through putting this on, and then just gave up and got into the limo anyway.
gown by Christian Dior
Sad and awkward. A shame, because the shoes and the necklace are phenomenal, but this is just depressing.
gown by Vionnet
It’s at least a size too small, and Naomie Harris wore it better.
gown by Chanel
You can always count on Milla to bring the crazy. Sometimes that results in complete and utter fabulosity: sometimes, she looks like she’s wearing swim floaties made out of poodles.

BE LESS BORING.
