Cinema Against AIDS


Thursday saw the 20th annual Cinema Against AIDS benefit which raised over $25 million for amfAR, a charity which works to fight HIV/AIDS.
The night included a fashion show with a gold theme, featuring outfits from well-known and up-and-coming designers. There were a lot of stunning women's looks including a show-stopping satin dress from Armani Prive and a classic  gold skirt suit from Channel.
However, it was the men's looks that really interested me, while some of them were beautiful there were a few outfits that were more eye-watering than eye-catching.
My favourite outfit from the night was by Tarun Tahiliani. rather than being brash the gold theme was channelled through a subtle shade of grey with a hint of metallic. The simple jacket with a neru collar and plain piping was perfectly understated and combined perfectly with a pair of loose, dull gold trousers, reflecting the designers Indian heritage but blending it with a western tailoring style.

On the other hand some of the mens outfits took the gold theme to the opposite extreme. Thom Browne's outfit for the show was completely bewildering and seems like a list of all the sartorial errors it is possible to make.
- metallic three piece suit
-matching tie
-anchor prints
-exposed stomach
and the grey fluff escaping from his trousers.... what are me meant to make of that? Thom Brown is a designer known for his bizarre creations but this outfit is something else!
