Celebrity fundraisers are often as lavish as awards shows, and the Caring for Women dinner hosted by French charity company Kering (which includes Gucci, Alexander McQueen, Saint Laurent and other brands) was no exception. Prominent guests included actress Emma Watson, actress Salma Hayek and her business partner and Kering CEO Francois-Henri Pinault, top models Karlie Kloss and Christie Turlington, fashion journalist and American Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, The Vampire Diaries’ star Kat Graham, as well as British model and actress Jody Turner-Smith and American feminist and human rights campaigner Gloria Steinem.
Among the most striking looks was Jodie Turner-Smith’s pleated coral gown and Salma Hayek’s elegant black gem-encrusted gown. Both dresses were designed by the fashion house Gucci. Emma Watson and Karlie Kloss opted for Alexander McQueen outfits – the actress wore white lace (she glittered in a men’s suit just a few days ago) and the supermodel opted for a structured orange open-shouldered flannel dress. Christie Turlington showed up in a baroque lace look, while Kat Graham wore a pantsuit with a cream lace corset.
