Just last week on February 11th, the sold-out black tie amFAR New York Gala was held at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City, and so many celebrities were at the event in support of AIDS research. The gala kicked off New York Fashion Week, so there were so many leaders of the fashion community in attendance, with one of our favorite fashion-forward celebs that walked the red carpet being Paris Hilton! While Paris is known for her risque looks, she showed class and style walking the amFAR gala red carpet in an elegantly embellished dress that we're obsessing over. You can head over to BroadwayWorld.com for photo coverage of the event.
The black dress that Paris wore featured a high illusion neckline and illusion mid section, thigh high slit, and beautiful beading throughout. We're especially loving this look because dress designer Mac Duggal makes two looks that are exactly like Paris'... and perfect for prom!
To get the traditional dress look that Paris Hilton wore to the amFAR gala, go with Mac Duggal style 1903. It's a floor length evening gown that's all about elegance and grace combined with show-stopping style, just like Paris' dress. The beaded dress features a high illusion neckline, cap sleeves, and a slit in the skirt. The bodice is delicately covered with a sheer overlay, allowing for just the right amount of skin to peek through, and the a-line double stretch knit jersey skit hugs your curves perfectly. It's shown in Black above, but it also comes in colors Ice Pink and Ivory.
To rock Paris' look in a more non-traditional manor, go for the jumpsuit version of style 1903: Mac Duggal style 1947! This pant suit features a stretch jersey knit material that will hug your curves just as perfectly as the dress version, and is so comfortable! It features the same high neckline and waist illusion paneling and embellishments throughout.
In case you've never heard of amFAR before, it's the American Foundation for AIDS Research. They hold a gala annually to help raise money for its cause, and this year's gala raised over $2 million for their AIDS research programs. Pretty amazing! This is its 17th year running, and other guests included Heidi Klum, Naomi Campbell, Chelsea Clinton, and Karlie Kloss (plus many more).
