The amfAR's Palm Beach Gala is an annual fundraising event that brings together celebrities and philanthropists to support the fight against AIDS. In addition to raising money for a great cause, the event is also an opportunity to showcase some amazing style. This year's gala did not disappoint, with attendees showing off some of the most glamorous and sophisticated looks we've seen in a long time.
Our Founder, Ceci Johnson, brought a unique and eye-catching look to the red carpet at the amfAR's Palm Beach Gala. She wore a stunning floral gown with a chic neckline with a ruffle shoulder. The dress was from No Pise La Grama, a fashion brand dedicated to statement looks. The tropical florals added a touch of palm beach to the overall look. Johnson paired the dress with metallic heels and statement earrings, completing the look with a glamorous draped hairstyle and warm-toned makeup. Her overall look was both feminine and bold, making her a standout on the carpet.
"When creating my look for this warm and vibrant occasion, I was immediately drawn to No Pise La Grama's floral gowns. The necklines are stylish and comfortable, while the draping from the waist to the ground offers flattering silhouettes. It was certainly a contrast to the snowy streets of the city here in New York! Congratulations to this incredible organization on taking the world a step closer to curing AIDS." Xx Ceci
THE STYLE EDIT: PALM BEACH GALA
One of the biggest trends at the event this year was colorful gowns featuring floral patterns and vibrant hues. We saw a lot of reds, pinks, and blues, as well as metallics like gold and silver. Another trend was statement jewelry, with many attendees opting for oversized earrings or chunky necklaces to add some sparkle to their looks. Hair and makeup were kept simple and understated, with many opting for sleek updos or loose waves and natural-looking makeup.
