To officially kick off New York Fashion Week, amfAR hosted a star-studded gala that brought out some of our favorite fashion-y gals. Leighton Meester, Alexa Chung, Janelle Monae, and Lindsay Lohan came out to support the Foundation for AIDS Research in their red carpet-ready ensembles, but, um, have we gone colorblind? All four ladies opted for entirely black and white ensembles! Leighton Meester was decked out in head-to-toe black Louis Vuitton goodness. She wore a plunging belted dress with fur trim, a gold chain clutch, and ankle strap platforms. Leighton sported soft waves with light fringe and barely there makeup. Alexa Chung ALSO wore LV for her ensemble but opted for all white instead. She looked ’60s mod-chic in her layered satin top and studded floral skirt paired with gold toe pointy heels and a screenprinted bag. She stuck to minimal makeup and a tousled bedhead for her beauty look.
OMG, Janelle is that you? We rarely spot the singer in revealing pieces, but we like that she changed up her look! She sported a wide-leg black jumpsuit with a white tuxedo jacket, rhinestone brooch, and matching clutch. For a pop of color, she wore a hint of hot pink on her lips and long, dazzling diamond earrings to add a touch of girliness to her menswear-inspired ensemble. And, wow: We barely recognized Lindsay Lohan under all that platinum blonde hair! She went for a winter white look in a skintight white Tom Ford dress and suede Prada shoes. Tell us, which colorless ensemble did you like best?
