A-listers turned out in their red carpet finest for the amfAR benefit gala that heralds the start of NYFW. We’ve got Heidi Klum, Kim and Kourtney Kardashian and more stars rocking their gorgeous gowns.
New York City is THE place to be for the next seven days as Fashion Week 2019 kicks off. The 21st annual amfAR gala to raise money for AIDS research signals the unofficial beginning of the fashion frenzy and the event draws so many A-listers dressed to the nines. Kim Kardashian West is always a red carpet staple at the gala held on Feb. 6 at New York’s Cipriani. The 38-year-old wore a daring and cleavage-baring black down with cutouts to reveal plenty of under boob. She kept everything else minimal, going without jewelry, keeping her hair long and wavy and wearing clear strappy sandals to make her appear barefoot. That way, all of the attention was on her enviable chest.
Kim’s older sis Kourtney, 39, also attended the event and went with her sister on the black sleeveless gown theme. She too shunned any jewelry or bling, keeping the focus on her perfect skin. The dress featured a scalloped bustline that have her breasts a lift and a left thigh high slit. Unlike her sis, Kourt went super dramatic with her hair and makeup, wearing a super tight high ppny as well as smokey eyes and rosy cheeks.
Heidi Klum is also a mainstay of the amfAR red carpet and the 45-year-old showed off her killer figure in a grey and silver dress with heavy embellishment and beading. The top featured a v-neck all the way down to her waistline to show the former model’s incredible decollitage. The silvery fabric then gave way to cascading gunmetal grey streams of beading that made up her skit. Heidi wore her blonde locks long and loose and looked so happy to be there with a bright smile.
Actress Michelle Rodriguez, 40, — who is also an award presenter later in the evening — came decked out in a stunning braless copper-colored halter gown with a high neckline and intricate pleating. The look was able to let always fit Fast and the Furious star show off her toned arms and shoulders. She wore brunette locks in a short bob that came just down to her jawline.
Since its New York Fashion Week’s kickoff, plenty of models were in attendance. Victoria’s Secret Angel Candice Swanepoel, 30, looked like a classic beauty in a gown that featured a white satin top that turned into a giant bow in the back with a black long pencil skirt that had a sexy side split. Alessanda Ambrosio, 37, gave Kim a run for her money in the cleavage department, wearing a dramatic black long sleeved gown that had a wide keyhole cutout in the middle of her chest and another triangular one along her hipline below her belted waist to show more skin. The incredible dress also featured a high slit to her left thigh and a train of fabric that trailed behind her.
