It was a stylish event with a guestlist that boasted a host of A-listers and the crème of the fashion industry.
But it was Miranda Kerr who commanded the attention at the Council of Fashion Designers of American and Vogue dinner in New York on Tuesday, showing off her fashion prowess – not to mention her stunning physique – in a peach and black gown.
The Victoria’s Secret supermodel played up her maxi dress to perfection, twirling for the cameras as she pouted and posed on the red carpet. She paired the pretty Giulietta creation with platform Mary Janes and a little black clutch.
Inside, Miranda joined other famous faces including Emma Stone, Liv Tyler, Christina Ricci and Dakota Fanning.
Emma Stone looked stunning, putting her svelte frame on display in a black bodice that she teamed with a dazzling green sequinned skirt. And Liv opted for a more demure look in a high necked and long sleeved patterned dress.
A host of fashion designers joined the A-list crowd, including Burberry’s Christopher Bailey and Diane von Furstenberg. The dinner was to raise funds for emerging designers, in order to give them the opportunity to become better known.
Australian beauty Miranda’s appearance comes only a week after her stunning turn on the Victoria’s Secret catwalk. The mum-of-one, who is married to Orlando Bloom, was angelic as she took to the glittering runway in an enormous pair of white swan feather wings.
And in a recent interview, she explained why modelling the tiny lingerie isn’t an issue for her. “I believe in celebrating the female figure and embracing what we’ve been given, not hiding that,” she told Esquire magazine.
Asked whether she has any rules on posing without her clothes on, she said: “I don’t really think of rules, as long as it’s classy and timeless and it’s something I wouldn’t be ashamed of.”
Miranda married movie star Orlando in 2010, just one month after announcing their plans to wed. Lord of the Rings star Orlando – who previously romanced actress Kate Bosworth – began dating the cover girl in 2007.
They welcomed their little boy Flynn in early 2011. “We are so happy and are enjoying our time together as a family,” the 27-year-old said in a statement after the birth.
“He is our little ray of sunshine,” added the proud mum.
She revealed she didn’t use pain relief for what turned out to be a “long arduous and difficult labour. He weighed 9lb 12 ounces (a very healthy and big baby boy),” Miranda added. “I gave birth to him naturally.”
