amfAR Touches Down in Paris Just in Time for Couture

“It’s been a LONG time since I’ve walked on the runway and I’m NERVOUS,” Karen Elson captioned a backstage Instagram, posing with Bella Hadid moments before the Atelier Versace show during Paris Couture. Apparently, some things you never forget — just a day after the show, Elson borrowed that same Fall 2016 couture gown that Hadid wore on the runway for amfAR’s annual Paris dinner. Donatella Versace showed up, too, accompanied by Jennifer Garner — her newest front-row recruit — Adrien Brody, and Naomi Campbell. Elsewhere, Soo Joo Park lounged in a liquid silver cap-sleeved Fendi gown, rubbing shoulders with Victoria’s Secret Angel Sara Sampaio over dinner while French singer Ute Lemper crooned on stage. Ubiquitous It models like Anna Cleveland, in Haider Ackermann, Shanina Shaik, Petra Nemcova, and Mariacarla Boscono all made their appearances at the Paris Peninsula Hotel, where the dinner and auction carried into the night. There’s New York and Cannes, sure, but there’s something to be said for the understated glamour of amfAR’s Paris dinner.
