Just because the Oscars celebrate Hollywood’s leading film stars doesn’t mean that fashion’s own tastemakers are no where to be found for the A-list event! Like their silver screen counterparts, all of the top models were out to play in their finest garb last night, making one jaw-dropping appearance after the next at two of the most buzzed about parties of the night.
Things kicked off at the Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards viewing party, where supermodels Naomi Campbell, Heidi Klum and Petra Nemcova joined Sports Illustrated Swimsuit stunner Jessica Pérez for a night of star-studded glamor. Befitting of the occasion, Heidi opted for a slinky, shimmery gold floor-length gown designed by Julien MacDonald and jewels by Lorraine Schwartz. With it’s almost navel-grazing neckline, backside cutouts and high-voltage shine, Heidi proved to be the real statuesque beauty of the evening, no doubt giving old Oscar a run for his money. Naomi Campbell stayed clear of the sparkle trend this season, choosing a stunning floor-length navy velvet gown with a high, embellished neckline. The style icon accessorized the ultra-chic dress with a set of gleaming diamond cuff bracelets and soft, tousled tresses, both of which were the perfect accessories to her incredible physique. Meanwhile, Petra Nemcova went feminine and sweet in asymmetrical, one-shoulder white gown by Ralph and Russo, which she paired with Chopard jewels and Salvatore Ferragao shoes and miniadeur. Jessica Perez on the other hand opted for color, choosing a bright green-yellow one-shoulder BCBG dress, Brian Atwood heels and a vintage clutch.
The annual Vanity Fair after party didn’t skimp on the top model beauty either, boasting a red carpet lineup that included more than a few of our favorite leading ladies of fashion. As expected Victoria’s Secret Angel Miranda Kerr was on hand for the event, looking every bit the heavenly beauty in her Valentino Fall ‘12 blue-grey couture gown and bejeweled earrings. Alessandra Ambrosio joined her fellow Angel on the carpet in a gorgeous Baroque-inspired gold gown designed by Zuhair Murad. Recent model-turned-actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley also strut her stuff in Valentino Fall ‘12 couture, choosing an off-the shoulder petal pink ruffle number, jewellery from XIV Karat, Graziela Gems and Melinda Maria and shoes by Alexandre Birman. White always proves to be a big style winner on the red carpet and no one did it better than Irina Shayk. The Brazilian model wore a straight from the runway, plunging v-neck gown designed by Stephanie Rolland, topping off her look with shoes and bag by Jimmy Choo. But that’s just the beginning! Top models Chrissy Teigen, Karolina Kurkova, Erin Wasson, Carolyn Murphy, Chanel Iman and Liberty Ross were all spotted making the rounds with Hollywood’s finest last night making for one spectacular red carpet fashion roundup.
