The 2017 amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala is just a few days away and I am getting really excited to see what is going to go down on the red carpet. There will be 40 models walking in Carine Roitfeld’s runway show on top of all the international film stars that are going to descend upon the Hotel du Cap Eden Roc for this years event. Ana Beatriz Barros has dazzled over and over again on the red carpet over the last year wearing some really gorgeous Ralph & Russo Couture looks. I would love to see Ana step out on the red carpet at this years amfAR Gala wearing the label yet again. I think that Ana would deliver a beautiful Audrey Hepburn inspired moment with this light pink Ralph & Russo Spring 2016 Couture off the shoulder midi gown which features beautiful circle embroidery and a tired skirt. On the red carpet at the amfAR Gala we usually see a whole host of styles on the red carpet from short mini dresses to dramatic couture ballgowns, so this look is a perfect median to that. I think that this delicate and feminine approach would totally be amped up thanks to the sex appeal that Anna just oozes on the red carpet. Rounding out this look with old Hollywood waves, smokey eye, light pink lip, rose gold metallic sandals, and a pair of pink diamond drop earrings would just make this look the epitome of feminine glamour. Eva Herzigova has been all over the Cannes Film Festival so far this year. I am expecting that the supermodel will stick around for the amfAR Gala on Thursday. Surprisingly we have not seen Eva wear anything from Dior on the red carpet at Cannes yet, but I think that will be short lived when the amfAR Gala comes around. I think that this black chiffon Christian Dior Spring 2017 Couture gown is a pretty safe bet bet for Eva to wear on the red carpet at this years amfAR Gala. This is a pretty standard gown to see on a red carpet, so I know it won’t make any best dressed lists, but I do think that Eva would look very chic wearing this creation on the red carpet. I would hope that this gown has a little bit of a train to make it a smidge more dramatic than what some other Dior looks have been off the runway. Adding more drama with a statement Chopard collar necklace, black sandals, smokey eye, red lip, and loose waves would really make this a perfect look for Eva to wear on the amfAR red carpet. Izabel Goulart is one of my favorite models to see on the red carpet and I am praying that if she steps out on the red carpet at the amfAR Gala this year that she delivers a red carpet look I love. I could see her turning to any host of her favorite designers for a beautiful draped silk, satin, or chiffon gown to go along with the old Hollywood glamour theme of the evening. While I love me some old Hollywood glamour I want to see a variety of looks referencing the golden age of Hollywood on the red carpet. I think that Izabel would ooze classic Hollywood sophistication wearing this gold embellished lace long sleeve Elie Saab Spring 2017 Couture column gown which features a faux wrap skirt, high neck, daring split, and cold shoulders. While I am very much over the “naked dress” trend and I love this dress and I think that on the right person that I would find myself putting it on a best dressed list. I can see Izabel wearing this gown with her signature loose waves over would shoulder, diamond cluster earrings, a gold clutch, and gold sandals really making it that moment I can fall in love with. I have been pleasantly surprised with the very beautiful looks that Petra Nemcova has worn over the course of the festival so far and I am hoping that she will continue to deliver beautiful looks on the red carpet through the amfAR Gala. I think that Petra would look absolutely beautiful on the red carpet at this years amfAR Gala wearing this black silk velvet Alberta Ferretti Limited Edition Spring 2017 column gown which features a side flounced ruffle, crystal brooch embellished belt, and a slight off-the-shoulder neckline. This gown is dramatic glamour at its finest and I do think we will see the gown on the red carpet at the amfAR Gala at Cannes. Velvet can be seen as too heavy for the light red carpets at Cannes, but I do think that Petra would look so incredibly chic wearing this creation on the red carpet. Styling the look with a sleek romantic updo, lined eye, red lip, black sandals, a black clutch, and uber dazzling diamond drop earrings and I think that this would totally be another best dressed worthy ensemble for PetraIt is rumored that pop superstar turned film actress and model Rita Ora is slated to be the big performer at the amfAR Gala this year. This would not be the first time that the British songstress has been on the red carpet at the amfAR Gala in Cannes having worn a dramatic Marchesa gown for the event in 2015. For this years gala I decided to make a more obscure reference to the golden age of Hollywood for Rita to wear on the red carpet at this years gala. I think that this Giambattista Valli Fall 2016 Couture gown evoked a very distinct Scarlett O’Hara vibe, and I don’t know how much more golden age of Hollywood one can get than a Gone with the Wind reference. I don’t think that there could be a more perfect look for Rita to wear on the red carpet. This look evokes a classic film and still fits in with the setting on the French Riviera to perfection. It might be similar to the Giambattista Valli gown that Rita wore earlier this year for the Fifty Shades Darker premiere, but I think that this gown is just different enough to really make it another totally beautiful red carpet moment. Strappy gold sandals, loose updo, smokey eye, nude lip, and dazzling emerald earrings would ensure that this is another amazing look for Rita.
The 2017 amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala will take place on Thursday May 25, 2017. The 2017 Cannes Film Festival is currently running and will run through Sunday May 28, 2017.
