The Red carpet
Because one of the organizers was the brand of luxury Swarovski products, the brightness was the protagonist of the outfits that sported the most influential fashion celebrities in the red carpet.
The drag queen and television personality Aquaria wore a design by the transgressive brand Matty Bovan, whose creative director also moves between genres.
The model Winnie Harlow, who has introduced some diversity to the catwalks, walked on the red carpet wearing a Versace dress. When it comes to shine and extravagance, this brand is never far behind.
Rosie Huntington-Whitheley, meanwhile, leaned towards another classic brand in making the stars shine. She wore a Givenchy dress with a cape that made it a little more sober but no less stunning.
Without a doubt, 2018 was the year of Kaia Gerber. The daughter of super model Cindy Crawford started this year and she already took a place in the industry. Alexander McQueen dressed her up for tonight in this asymmetrical and risky dress.
Kendall Jenner is one of the most influential celebrities in the industry. Not only because of its catwalks, but because what it uses becomes fashionable instantly. For this occasion she wore a transparent gold dress, it is a bold design by Julien McDonald.
