amFAR Fashion Week Gala Is The Stuff Nightmares Are Made Of


Last night in New York, French Vogue editor-in-chief Carine Roitfeld was honored alongside Julian Schnabel and Bobby Shriver by amFAR for “their vital and distinctive contributions to the global struggle against AIDS.” It being the eve of New York Fashion Week, we totally expected the attendees at the gala to make an effort with their outfits — plus, they were going to be in the presence of La Roitfeld herself! But let’s just say that Natasha Richardson, above, was the only highlight of the evening, and that we’re pretty sure we’re going to be having nightmares about most of the dresses on display. (Jesus, even Christy Turlington dropped the ball!) The full good, bad, and ugly, after the jump.

The Good:

As usual, Carine Roitfeld looks perfect, although she could stand to lose the Kenneth Cole accessory.

Sure she might’ve fallen during the pageant, but Miss Universe Riya Mori had one of the most stand-up looks of the evening.

Molly Sims looks cool and effortlessly glam in her almost-sheer sheath.

The Bad:

I’m sure that Lauren Bush is wearing Ralph Lauren, but this dress is just ill-fitting and not at all flattering.

Christy Turlington let me down. This dress is just all wrong for her.

The Ugly:

Who the hell is going to listen to Veronica Webb give fashion advice of Tim Gunn’s Guide To Style after seeing her in this monstrosity?

Jennifer Esposito’s dress looks like, in the words of Michael Kors, “something the town whore’s mom made.”
