2018 amfAR New York Gala Red Carpet Wish List

amfAR IS EVERYWHERE. Every year the HIV/AID research and advocacy group kicks off their campaign of star studded galas in New York City with a big bash to kick off New York Fashion Week. I love to see what the stars will bring to the red carpet next Wednesday night at the the amfAR New York Gala. Chloë Sevigny is one of this years event chairs and I am praying that she will be on the red carpet because I love me a Chloë sighting on the red carpet. While Proenza Schouler doesn’t show at New York Fashion Week anymore (instead opting to show during Paris Couture Fashion Week) I think that because they still ooze NYC cool I think that picking one of their looks for Chloë just works. I think that this red carpet could be the last chance we have to see this white Proenza Schouler Spring 2018 RTW metallic fil coupe dress which features a paneled construction and a playful feather design and I definitely think that Chloë would definitely own this look on the red carpet. I think Chloë’s weird sense of glamour would totally make this weird glamorous runway moment a real great moment on the red carpet. I know she would add a sleek topknot, a bold defined eye, red lips, a black lace lacquered Miu Miu box clutch, and a pair of black Miu Miu crystal embellished knot front sandals to really make this a major moment.Of the ‘Instagram models’ on the red carpet I think that Hailey Baldwin is one of my favorites, when she wears a gown that isn’t wearing a sheer gown. I would love to see the amfAR New York Gala co-chair wearing this white and gold woven John Paul Ataker Spring 2018 RTW column gown which features a fringe hem and spaghetti straps. This gown is elegant, yet sexy and I think that if anyone could make it any sexier that it would be Hailee, especially with a sleek ponytail, smokey eye, nude lips, gold glitter Casadei ‘Techno Blade’ sandals, and gold Jennifer Fisher jewelry including a pair of double pin earrings with pave white diamonds and a large ‘script’ cuff bracelet. Halsey is performing at the amfAR New York Gala and I am really, really excited to seeing what she will wear on the red carpet next Wednesday. Usually on this red carpet, unless they are honoring a specific designer, we see stars wearing the brands that show during New York Fashion Week. But since watching the Christian Dior Spring 2018 Couture show I have been picturing seeing Halsey wearing grey and silver gown which features a sequined breastplate and a sheer hem. I usually hate gowns designed like this, but I do think that if anyone could sell it it me that it would be Halsey. The dress is such a statement moment all on its own that I would keep the styling rather simple with a shaved head, smokey eye, dusty rose lips, a pair of black Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudistsong’ sandals, and Christian Dior Fine Jewelry “Salon de Mars Glace” earrings in white gold, scorched silver, platinum and diamonds.Marchesa canceled their New York Fashion Week runway show in the wake of all the out dealing with co-designer Georgina Chapman’s husband Harvey Weinstein. I will continue to say that she and the brand should not be punished for his very disgusting actions. I would love to see Heidi Klum give the brand its first red carpet moment since the scandal broke next week wearing this bordeaux Marchesa Pre-Fall 2018 gown which features a off shoulder neckline, corseted draped bodice, and 3D flower corsage at neckline. Heidi has long been a fan of wearing Marchesa on the red carpet and I think that this gown would definitely redeem her for several naked dresses that we have seen her wearing recently. When Heidi goes for chic glamour on the red carpet it usually turns out oh so good, and I think that this would do just that. Add classic old Hollywood waves, defined eyes, a matching red lip, sangria velvet RAYE ‘Blake’ sandals, and a selection of Harry Winston jewels including a pair of ruby and diamond drop earrings and a statement ruby and diamond bracelet to really make sure that Heidi delivers the glamour on this red carpet.I was really hoping for a very rare Iman red carpet sighting at the Grammy Awards this past weekend, but unfortunately that didn’t happen. So now I am hoping that with her role as an event chair at this years amfAR New York Gala that we will still have a chance to get that regal red carpet moment from Iman. I decided to pick this gorgeous Marc Jacobs Spring 2018 RTW sequined yellow gown which features a built in floral corsage, sleeveless bodice, and a column skirt for her to wear because I really think that she would really own the gown and not let the gown own her (sorry Kaia the look is wearing you.) I would however strip back the styling removing the turban, rope belt, and gloves to let the gown stand on its own. Add a pair of gold Michael Vivien ‘Elina’ t-bar sandals, sleek updo, smokey eyes, and a red lip to really let the gown be the center of attention for this look for Iman.Sienna Miller is another I love to see on the red carpet and I an hoping that if she steps out for the amfAR New York Gala next week that she brings her signature brand of bohemian glamour to the red carpet. That is exactly what I think she would do wearing this ochre yellow Prabal Gurung Pre-Fall 2018 goddess gown features a asymmetric neckline, draped bodice, and cutout at the waist. Regular readers may realize how obsessed with this gown I am. I have featured it several times now, but no one has worn it. It is an extremely versatile gown that I think that many stars would look gorgeous wearing on the red carpet, but I think that the way Sienna would wear it would just ooze effortless glamour on this red carpet. With a romantic updo, simple defined eyes, a rose pink lip, nude Gianvito Rossi twist style stiletto sandals, and a pair of 18k gold vintage Cartier winged diamond earrings Sienna would deliver a dramatic and bohemian moment on the red carpet at the amfAR New York Gala. The incomparable Taraji P. Henson is being honored at this years gala and I am really excited to see what she will end up wearing on the red carpet next Wednesday. She has given so many uber sexy moments on the red carpet from short and sheer to dramatic and glamorous. It really doesn’t matter what Taraji is wearing she knows how to infuse the sex appeal. I would love to see Taraji show up with gala event co-chair Zac Posen wearing this antique gold gown which features sweetheart neckline, a fit and flare styled silhouette, and a back train design from the designers Resort 2018 collection. There is always one really great Zac Posen moment on this red carpet and I think that this would be the perfect moment for Taraji to have a really major Zac Moment. Keep the dramatic sex appeal of this gown going with a pair of bronze glitter Jimmy Choo ‘Paloma Lang’ sandals, a sleek lob, a bronze smokey eye, burgundy lips, and a selection of brown diamond deGrisogono diamond jewels including a pair of pendant earrings and a statement cocktail ring to really ensure that Taraji is the star of the night.

The 2018 amfAR New York Gala will take place on Wednesday February 7, 2018.
