Colour Blocking with Iman in a Show-Stopping Design by Prabal Gurung – Fashionwidget’s GET THE LOOK Series

SHOW-STOPPER

WHO: Iman

WHAT: Gordon Parks Foundation awards dinner and auction

WHEN: June 1, 2011

WHERE: Gotham Hall, New York City

FASHIONWIDGET’S VERDICT: We did not have Spring in New York City this year so we gladly welcomed this amazingly colourful Prabal Gurung Spring 2011 frock as soon as we spotted it on the red carpet worn by Supermodel Iman Bowie. It has been said that extremely beautiful women usually rely on their beauty to carry them through everything including fashion. That is not the case with Iman, a woman over 50 with a fashion sense that is as forward thinking as it is sophisticated and revolutionary. Many would argue that she is a beneficiary of the fact that she has been in fashion for a good portion of her life thus far but I say you cannot by style and you can buy class. You either have it or you don’t and this woman has it times 2. Beauty and grace with style to boot.

Cannes Film Festival 2011 Day 9 – Fashion for a Cause – amFAR Gala

DEFINITIVE STYLE

WHO: Gwen Stefani, Janet Jackson, Courtney Love, Rosario Dawson, Doutzen Kroes, Michelle Rodriguez, Freida Pinto et.al.

WHAT: amFAR Gala 2011 – Cinema Against AIDS

WHEN: MAY 19TH, 2011

WHERE: CANNES, FRANCE

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Fashionwidget’s Verdict: Models versus Actresses versus Singers versus Designers, every single one of them showed up with their fashionista game face on. We Especially loved the colourful statements made by Doutzen Kroes and Janet Jackson in a two-tone Haider Ackmermann dress. The fashion was simply stellar on the amFAR red carpet this year as expected.  We loved the Jean Fares, the Chanel(s) and the Givenchy Couture(s), we also cherished looks from L.A.M.B (Gwen Stefani was a showstopper in her black halter ensemble) and Atelier Versace. It is with sincere hope that we wonder if it was as much fun for all these divas to strut in their latest designer threads for a worthy cause as it was for us to watch and offer our opinions. We also hope some serious money was raised to benefit AIDS research. For more information about the American Foundation for AIDS Research (amFAR ) and how you can volunteer/donate/spread the word please follow the link(s) as listed below.
