Karolina Kurkova in Marchesa | Met Gala 2014

WHO: Karolina Kurkova
WHERE & WHEN: Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala – “Charles James: Beyond Fashion” on May 5, 2014.
WEARING: Marchesa dress, Harry Winston jewelry

MY VERDICT: Karolina took the high glamour theme of this year’s MET Ball and ran with it to the greatest lengths. The 30-year-old model truly stunned on the red carpet in her navy floral asymmetric Marchesa layered gown with an extended skirt and asymmetric cut bodice. This dress is an older design from the Spring/Summer 2011 collection, and it’s one of those looks that I never understood why no one wore it to the Met in the past, or even Cannes. Sometimes a great look is worth waiting for, and Karolina saved it for the perfect night.

Is it over the top? Of course, but it’s a true modern ball gown and it’s the Costume Institute Gala. Go big or go home. For me, this was one of the most memorable dresses of the evening.

Because the dress did most of the talking, Karolina simply wore her long hair pulled back and finished with over $1 million dollars worth of Harry Winston diamonds. Yowza!

WHO: Karolina Kurkova
WHERE & WHEN: 2013 CFDA Fashion Awards on June 3, 2013.
WEARING: Michael Kors

MY VERDICT: It was all about the shine for the Michael Kors girls! While Cody Horn sparkled in a crystal embroidered black gown, model Karolina Kurkova hit the black carpet wearing a silver foil short sleeve top and matching itty-bitty shorts, from Kors’ new Resort 2014 collection. Pulling off both pieces as a set can prove to be a difficult task for many–especially those shorts–but, it seems effortless for Karolina. She finished off the shimmering ensemble by accessorizing with a silver Y-necklace and matching ankle strap sandals, and then topping it all off with light makeup and cascading curls.

WHO: Karolina Kurkova
WHERE & WHEN: 2013 Vanity Fair Oscar Party on February 24, 2013.
WEARING: Atelier Versace

MY VERDICT: The annual Vanity Fair Oscar Party witnessed some model behavior when the beautiful Karolina Kurkova arrived in a sexy cutout Atelier Versace dress. The 29-year-old former Victoria’s Secret Angel stepped out in this black silk crepe floor-length dress from the Spring 2013 Haute Couture collection that features strategically placed illusion cutouts that are framed in edgy zipper detailing and neon yellow and red tubing along the neckline. This dress isn’t an easy one to pull off, but Karolina did so while polishing it off with daring slicked back hair, red lacquered nails and strappy black sandals.

Karolina Kurkova in Elie Saab | Remo Ruffini & Moncler 60th Anniversary

Karolina Kurkova looked darling on the white carpet this past Friday night when she attended a private dinner during Art Basel in Miami Beach. The model rocked a theatrical little Elie Saab suit as she helped celebrate the 60th anniversary of Remo Ruffini and Moncler.

The magenta collared button up blouse and matching crepe blazer and shorts that Karolina wore comes from the Spring/Summer 2013 collection, but was originally presented on the catwalk in t royal blue. While I think the blue would have looked even better against Karolina’s complexion and light blonde hair—I’m kind of obsessed with this suit! I mean, seriously, I just want to give her a little cane and a top hat. This is chic, but totally adorable too.

Karolina wore a great pair of black caged booties and carried a coordinating black feathered clutch, but I was let down by the lack of effort she put into her hair.

What did you think of this little hot pink suit?

Karolina Kurkova was working that tuxedo on Thursday night when she hit up Goodman’s 111th anniversary celebration in New York City alongside designer Roberto Cavalli.

Not only do I adore the look in general, I love how fierce and confident Karolina looks in it! | continue reading..
