Kim Kardashian wins the proverbial little black dress award at the amfAR black-tie event.
Actually, the fashionista Kim Kardashian always puts the little black dress to shame on the red carpet making everyone else seem like a novice carbon copy. Wednesday evening in New York City was no exception.
Before we get into the celeb sightings and the haute couture, let’s cover the essentials. No, husband Kanye West was not Kim’s plus one invite and yes, it was a “who’s who” affair in the world of entertainment as the unofficial yet incredibly fashionable kick-off to New York Fashion Week was underway with the 2019 amfAR Gala for The Foundation for AIDS Research.
Honoring one of the organization’s longstanding supporters in the fight against AIDS since its inception 21 years ago, actress Milla Jovovich stepped in front of the cameras giving a nod to that old Hollywood feel in a shimmering and swanky Prada look from head to toe.
But it was award presenter for the event Kim Kardashian and her sister and Keeping Up With the Kardashians co-star Kourtney Kardashian who turned heads both dressed in Versace and representing both provocative ends of the spectrum: low-cut cleavage and thigh-high slits.
All eyes were on her potential wardrobe malfunction or the hope there of. You can uncross your fingers from behind your back. As if.
How did Kanye spend his evening in lieu of champagne toasts? At home on daddy duty perhaps.
And while some may saw a few zzz’s at the thought of attending stuffy, black-tie galas…
It’s all for a great cause, there’s a live auction, and they can get litty too! Remember the 2016 amfAR Gala when Jay-Z and Robert De Niro squashed their beef over cocktails and came together for one night only to honor the once esteemed producer Harvey Weinstein who fell from grace? Hmmm….
