The Cannes Film Festival isn't complete until amfAR's annual Cinema Against AIDS gala goes down. And right now, we're mesmerized by some seriously gorgeous red carpet ensembles that rival those from the week's biggest movie premieres. This year's attendees include Jessica Chastain in a deep red cutout gown that matched her hair perfectly, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley rocking a little white dress with matching pumps, and Olivia Palermo looking wild as ever in animal print (hello thigh-high slit!). Add a plethora of superchic models and actresses to that list and you have one glamorous affair. Click through to see who's wearing what at the 2013 amfAR benefit.
Of course, models look amazing on the runway, but it's their off-duty street styles that we really love to see. Each girl has her own aesthetic, and we love them all for different reasons. We can thank Kate Moss for proving that leopard goes with everything. We count on Miranda Kerr to sport sneakers (or just about anything) in the chicest way possible, and we look to Rosie Huntington-Whiteley for her effortlessly styled layers. As always, Alessandra Ambrosio puts a sexier spin on casual cool, and Gisele Bündchen makes even jeans and t-shirts look high-fashion. There's more inside — like Cara Delevingne's punky Brit-girl style and Karlie Kloss's take on the classics — so keep clicking to see all our favorite models and their top street-style moments this year.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley may have made a name for herself on the runway, but if there's one thing the past two years have demonstrated, it's that the 26-year-old model, who has been working in the industry for a decade already, may be ready to shift from the catwalk to the silver screen. After appearing in Transformers: Dark of the Moon in 2011, the Victoria's Secret Angel is set to appear in Mad Max: Fury Road in 2014 — and that's not all the model-turned-actress and entrepreneur has in store for herself. As she divulged in the most recent issue of NET-A-PORTER's The Edit. See some of her best quotes from the
On her favorite color: "Red is my power color. I love red. I'm drawn to it. I feel great when I'm wearing it. It's a sexy, confident color. But it's got to be a deep, powerful shade."
On how being in Transformers: Dark of the Moon influenced her fashion: "The Transformers audience is quite…specific. They want to see you looking 'sexy.' It informed my clothing choices on the press tour. I tried to find a way of being sexy but subtle."
On her new tattoo: "It's a hummingbird by Scott Campbell, a tattoo artist who does a lot for Marc Jacobs...hummingbirds fly about my house in LA. There's a hideous bush that my gardener wants to cut down, but I won't let him because all the hummingbirds gravitate towards it. In the mornings, I can sit with a coffee and watch them."
On having her own line of lingerie: "The process, from understanding what people want, to seeing my products in stores is incredibly moving."
On her acting aspirations: "I'd love to do a period drama, or make a quintessentially British comedy."

The 2013 Met Gala may have given celebrities a chance to channel their inner punk rocker in NYC yesterday, but once the event drew to a close, it was clear that these edgy new looks were only meant to last for the night. Stars like Cameron Diaz and Miranda Kerr were spotted returning to their normal selves as they left the bash, with Cameron chatting on her cell phone as she waited for her car and Miranda enlisting Michael Kors to help her navigate the stairs in her heels. Emma Roberts got help from Jaime King as she left the party, clutching onto her pal's hand as she carefully walked down the museum's famous stairs while Gwen Stefani made a smooth exit with Gavin Rossdale. Meanwhile, stars like Anne Hathaway and Taylor Swift were showing no signs of slowing down, using the mass exit of celebrities as a chance to catch up with their favorite small-screen stars like Game of Thrones' Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and New Girl's Zooey Deschanel.
Of course, just because the Met Gala wrapped up, that didn't mean the party had ended. Anne, Miranda, and many more celebrities hit up the afterparty at the Boom Boom Room later to dance the night away — be sure to check out the pictures from the Met Gala 2013 afterparty.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley opted for a much darker look this evening, wearing a Gucci gown featuring a sheer black-and-gold tulle top and satin skirt. To add to the high shine, the model accessorized with a lizard jeweled clutch, beautiful drop earrings, and a diamond gold statement ring. Are you loving her skin-revealing brand of glam?

Balmain hosted an intimate dinner party at Chateau Marmont last evening with celebrity attendees like Nicole Richie and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley decked out in the designer du jour. Both ladies offered us different looks from Balmain's Spring 2013 collection — but whose outfit do you like best? Watch today's Fashion Flash for all the scoop from the party. On Allison: Sachin + Babi jacket, Zara top, BesoBeso jewelry.
Balmain is known for its rocker-girl appeal, and at last night's dinner hosted by the label's designer, Olivier Rousteing, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Nicole Richie caught our attention (and then some) wearing the brand's subversive pieces. Rosie channeled the '90s in a black and white look comprised of a printed leather check skirt, long-sleeved leather crop top, and sexy laser-cut boots. Meanwhile, Nicole took a slightly softer approach in an intricate summery knit minidress and soft gray suede pumps. Both look hot in their warm-weather party ensembles, but which one gets your best-dressed vote — Rosie or Nicole?
Nicole Richie and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley both wore Balmain to the fashion house's LA dinner party at the Chateau Marmont last night. Nicole's stylish night out comes hot on the heels of the launch of her new reality series, Candidly Nicole, on AOL On. The new web show describes itself as being based on Nicole's Twitter feed and follows her as she goes on various short adventures, and has already earned rave reviews. One trip that might not end up on the show is the 2013 Met Gala, which takes place on Monday. Neither Nicole nor Rosie have been confirmed for the event, but that doesn't mean that there won't be tons of fashion stars at the bash — get all the details on the 2013 Met Gala, including the guest list, the designers, and more!
We kicked off the week with the Time 100 Gala, were treated to film premieres and parties in between, and closed it out with a Vogue-hosted dinner in London last night. Suffice it to say, celebrities have had ample opportunity to show off a range of glamorous eventwear — and they've taken it. From Kate Hudson's hot-pink heels and leather for an appearance in NYC to Joan Smalls's little white dress and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's knockout Michael Kors, it's a lesson in dressing of the very chicest kind. Get a look at the full top 10 when you keep clicking.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley led the pack of stylish stars at the Vogue UK dinner editor in chief Alexandra Shulman hosted for Michael Kors. Celebrities and style setters alike were decked out in designs by — you guessed it — the night's guest of honor.
