The Real Red Carpet of Chic: amfAR Gala 2018 by Semra Huseynzade Aliyeva

Carrying on with the fashion month with the fabulous start of New York Fashion Week on Thursday, the amfAR gala hosted another fantastic event as an unofficial introduction to New York Fashion Week this season. Well, it wasn't so different from fashion week after-parties considering that the catwalk stars were also part of the guest list at the gala last night.

The red carpet at the amfAR was particularly chic this year. Jewellery pieces from Chopard, beautiful gowns from Christian Dior, Zuhair Murad, Ashi Studio, Giorgi Armani as well as internationally emerging designers such as Raisa & Vanessa certainly complimented the Red Carpet.

The A-list guests looked so elegant and chic, well-deserved for the gala. I don’t know how to explain it, but, in my opinion, nobody overdid their outfits for the night, it was simple and perfect for the occasion. We usually tend to look at the Academy Award Red Carpet or the Cannes Film Festival galas to find inspiration, but due to its high publicity rate, I think many of the celebrities sometimes try too hard to be original and eventually miss the dress code. But this year, the amfAR Red Carpet stars simply inspired us with charming and exquisite looks that can give us ideas for occasion wear.

My favourites: Heidi Klum in Zuhair Murad and Sara Sampaio in Giorgio Armani. Olivia Culpo in Redemption Couture - beautiful dress yet the deep leg cleavage is so 2012.
