The American Foundation for AIDS Research, also known as amfAR, marked its 10th annual gala in Los Angeles on Thursday. Since it began, the amfAR Gala Los Angeles has already raised over $14 million for amfAR’s life-saving research programs.

The event has consistently drawn A-list celebrities, and this year was no different. On Thursday, stars flocked to Los Angeles’ Milk Studios to support the charity event, and the fashion looks they served were nothing short of stunning.

1. Gwyneth Paltrow Looks Classy in Jimmy Choo Heels

Gwyneth Paltrow was honored with the Award of Courage at the gala for her support and contributions to the AIDS foundation. Although she had no speech prepared, the 47-year-old actress made sure to be well-dressed for the occasion.

Stylist Natalie Hoselton masterminded Gwyneth’s classy look. Her long white Adam Lippe Spring 2020 caftan gown, which featured red palm embroideries, fell beautifully on her body. She kept the look effortlessly glamorous with Bulgari jewels and a pair of white satin sandals by Jimmy Choo.

Her twisted bun was impeccably done by Lorenzo Martin, while her soft makeup was applied by Georgie Eisdell.

Gwyneth’s Jimmy Choo sandals feature platforms and block heels, similar to the ‘Santina.’ These satin sandals have crystal-embellished ankle straps, about 1-inch platforms, and 5-inch heels.

2. Eva Longoria Dares to Bare in Gianvito Rossi Sandals

Eva Longoria stole the spotlight in a mustard long-sleeved gown from Dundas Pre-fall 2019 collection. Aside from the strikingly vibrant color, the dress also features a daring plunging keyhole detail at the front that put Eva’s cleavage on full display. It’s also backless, and the cinched waist has cutout details on each side, showing more of her skin.

Christina Aguilera, who performed at the event, also had one of the most eye-catching outfits of the night.

It was a wise choice to keep her shoes simple since her outfit was already striking enough. She wore a classic pair of ‘Janis’ pumps by Saint Laurent, which feature pointed toes, 1-inch beveled platforms, and about 5-inch heels.

4. Lea Michele Defines Victorian Glamour in Casadei Heels

Lea Michele opted for a Victorian look, wearing a floral brocade dress from Reem Arca’s Fall 2019 collection. The vintage silhouette, which comes with a nipped waist, velvet bowtie straps and a voluminous ball skirt, perfectly accentuated the former Glee star’s figure.

5. Alexandra Daddario Is Gothic Chic in Miu Miu Pumps

Percy Jackson star Alexandra Daddario sashayed down the purple carpet in an interesting goth glam look. She wore a black Escada dress, which she mentioned she got from her mom.

The floor-length silhouette looked a bit basic, but the lacy long sleeves and side slit gave the dress an interesting twist.

The 33-year-old actress simply wore her straightened locks down over her shoulders, and finished off the look with dark eyeshadow and liner.

Alexandra clearly didn’t want to appear too simple for the occasion. Instead of teaming up her dress with classic black sandals or strappy heels, she opted for a pair of Miu Miu pumps, which is anything but ordinary.
