2011 amfAR’s Cinema Against AIDS Gala

Posted on May 20, 2011

Darlings, it was the 2011 amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala during the 64th Annual Cannes Film Festival and everyone showed up in a crappy dress! Seriously, we don’t know what happened here. Maybe they’re all scraping the bottom of their luggage because they’ve worn all the good dresses to the festival already. Whatever the cause, there was a lot of ass on that red carpet. Brace yourselves.

Brooke Shields in Marchesa

WHAT is going ON with that HAIR? Never mind the dress, which looks awful on her; we can’t take our eyes off that thing on her head. What was her stylist thinking?

Courtney Love in Givenchy

It’s kind of her thing to take couture and make it work for her in a sloppy rock chick kind of way. Sometimes it works; sometimes it doesn’t. This almost works but we hate that the only bit of color was removed. It’s a more interesting dress with the shoulders.

Freida Pinto in Lanvin Fall 2010

Everyone else is wearing a gown, so this seems a little less formal than it should be. It also makes her look like a robot girl. Not exactly a “flirty and feminine” -style dress.

Goldie Hawn in Roberto Cavalli

She looks fine, but some color would have been welcome and it would have been nice if she’d done something with her hair.

Gwen Stefani in L.A.M.B.

Enh. It’s all right. Nothing to get excited about. It says something that she always looks less interesting when she’s wearing something from her own line.

Jane Fonda in Roberto Cavalli

Okay, someone’s taking that “cougar” thing a little too literally. She looks great, though.

Janet Jackson in Haider Ackermann

We did a little gasp when we saw this. Janet doesn’t wear color that often, but these two shades look beautiful on her. It’s very much her style – covered from top to bottom – but there’s an elegant drape to it that looks good on her.

Kirsten Dunst in Chanel

It’s pretty but a bit washed out.

Michele Rodriguez in Jean Fares Fall 2011 Couture

A great-looking dress made a little less great-looking be a silly pose. Is she putting her car keys in her pocket?

Rosario Dawson in Roberto Cavalli

Was the theme for the night “colorless dresses?” Because man, this is turning out to be one dishwater-dull red carpet. Not that we hate this. In fact, it’s pretty. Not sure about the way the bodice extends over the hips, though.

Uma Thurman in Chanel

Chanel Fall 2008 Couture Collection/Model: Coco Rocha (MARILYN)

Okay, her hair and makeup are a little weird, but girl brought it in the dress department. What a gorgeous look. Suits her to a tee. We go back and forth on the removal of the rose at the waist, but ultimately, we think the dress looks more sophisticated without it.
