Janet Jackson, Dita Von Teese, Chanel Iman, Donatella Versace and many more got all dressed up for amfAR's Inaugural Milan Fashion Week Event last night. Gorgeous gowns and elegantly eccentric ensembles abound!
Italian TV host Simona Ventura's cups runneth over in a gown that's part Mae West, part Sleeping Beauty.
Get oooout! Donatella Versace keeps the Versace message alive: It's all about tight or shiny, and hopefully a little of both. Kudos on braving the ankle-snapping heels, the thought of which make we mere mortals tremble.
Anna Piaggi! Italian fashion writer! Style icon! She of magical spreads for Italian Vogue! Always eccentric, never afraid. And she's used a bright red manual Olivetti typewriter for her work since 1969. What is not to love?!?!
Ms. Jackson's curves are positively goddess-like in this draped gown. We've been seeing a lot of electric blue and sapphire blue on the runways, and this jewel tone is really exquisite.
Kanye wants to know if you've heard any funny Kanye West jokes lately. Looks like he left one accessory — the booze bottle — at home. As for Amber Rose? She makes chic look easy. Damn her.
Rachel Bilson's black column dress is elegant, though a little dull.
Model Noemi Lenoir is one of my favorites, and her silky shirtdress is certainly sleek and chic.
A little Internet research reveals Hofit Golan's claim to fame seems to be posing on red carpets in skin-baring outfits. Mission accomplished!
While this is not my favorite dress on Dita Von Teese, I appreciate her wearing a bright color, when almost everyone else chose black. She is a show-stopper, even if the ruching and the sleeves seem a bit much.
Model Anja Rubik makes chain mail look sexy.
Chanel Iman is adorable, but I'm going to have to pretend I didn't see that incredibly chunky shoe peeking out from under her sumptuous gown.
Alek Wek: Stunning. Period.
On the left we have Giovanna Battaglia. L'Uomo Vogue editor and former Dolce and Gabbana model. On the right: Vladimir Restoin Roitfeld, son of French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld. In other words, friends, you're looking at fashion royalty. Her ensemble is ridiculous — yet somehow amazing; his vibe reeks of "I'd rather be on a boat in Sardegna." Bow down.
Dean and Dan Caten — founders of Dsquared — can pull off pink tux jackets with roughed-up jeans like no one else. They need to call Chuck Bass when they're looking for a third to call the corners with.
Linda Evangelista looks like she's been watching old movies on TCM. Loving the hair and slinky velvet skirt!
