Last night, Michael Kors‘ nearest and dearest came out to support him at the Golden Heart Gala at New York City’s Cunard Building. The evening’s red carpet was heavy on the simple sportswear, and guests’ looks fell squarely in to three camps: oranges, metallics, and blacks & blues — in other words, signature Kors, through and through.
Gwyneth Paltrow‘s black cut-out number was straight off of the designer’s Spring 2013 runway, though the hem was raised about a foot from the version Karlie Kloss wore in the show — a great call were it not for the somewhat jarring whiteness of her Jimmy Choo pumps. Also opting for dark dresses were Anna Wintour, in prim sleeveless navy jacquard, the Richards sisters with mom Patti Hansen, and Karolina Kurkova, whose double-breasted vest belted atop long sleeved lace was one of our favorite ensembles of the night.
The glitzier looks came courtesy of Kors’ metallic offerings, donned by Magic Mike stars Olivia Munn and Cody Horn. The former wore a simple silver sheath gathered at one hip, while the latter chose a pair of gold wide-leg pants paired with a new short ‘do — an edgier look for the 24-year-old actress. Last but certainly not least, Bette Midler held court by Kors’ side in a sunny orange frock, a color which the designer has professed his love for in interviews, on the runway, and, of course, on his grinning, forever-suntanned face.
