From Kimmy K to Michael Kors, New York city was awash with glamour on Monday evening. Here’s what our Fashion Panel have to say…

Gigi Hadid

GIGI HADID

Kim: I really like this look; the Micheal Kors bronze-embellished jumpsuit complements her tall, slender frame. I wish she played with her make-up a bit more, to add to the 70’s vibe that she was going with, and a contrasting pair of shoes or an edgier clutch would have amped up her sartorial game.
Outfit: 4/5
Hair & make-up: 2/5
Accessories: 2/5
Milli: Not many people can pull of a gold embellished jumpsuit, but Gigi has done it with total pizazz! In fact, she would have got full marks for this ensemble, had she been sporting a killer tan – the gold hues wash her out a bit. I’m not crazy about the gold clutch either, but her beauty game is strong.
Outfit: 4/5
Hair & make-up: 5/5
Accessories: 2/5
Marloes: Wow! Look at this lady! I love this elegance of the Michael Kors jumpsuit. The shiny material and the 70’s flare fit makes it look young and playful. It’s just missing some jewellery in an contrasting colour.
Outfit: 4/5
Hair & make-up: 4 /5

Kim: I have a love hate relationship with this look. I love the edgy mood, but what is going on with her hair and make-up? Its like she woke up with her lasts nights face still on! Nude make-up with a sleek ponytail would have been much better.
Outfit: 2/5
Hair & make-up: 1/5
Accessories: 2/5
Milli: Is it a dress? Is it a top and short? Who knows? I would have much rather seen a black slinky bodysuit underneath, instead of those shorts, which makes it look like she’s heading to Reading Festival, not one of America’s most prestigious fashion awards.
Outfit: 1/5
Hair & make-up: 2/5
Accessories: 1/5

Marloes: What happened here? Did she stand in the rain for an hour before hitting the red carpet? Because her hair and make-up were definitely not waterproof…

Karlie Kloss

KARLIE KLOSS

Kim: I love the neckline, but i’m not sure how i feel about the puffy sleeves or the length of this dress, it takes me back to elementary school. Hair and make-up are very ‘girl next door’ though! Love it!
Outfit: 3/5
Hair & make-up: 5/5
Accessories: 3/5
Milli: America’s model-of-the-moment, and here is why! Karlie exudes elegance in this DVF number. But let’s pretend that’s not a silver shoe poking through, because that would ruin the whole look. Hair and make-up are on point though!
Outfit: 4/5
Hair & make-up: 5/5
Accessories: 4/5

Karlie Kloss: The neckline and the length of this dress are perfect on this super model’s figure. But Karlie, the print, the puffy sleeves, the boring hair – it makes you look 10 years older! And I am missing some killer jewellery again. Bonus points for the red lips though!

Rachel Zoe

Rachael ZOE

Kim: Umm…I feel like she cut up a piece of her curtain and draped it around herself! A bit too inspired from The Sound of Music, are we? The dress doesn’t fit right and the shoes with the tassels are a walking disaster. Her only saving grace are her bold red lips!
Outfit: 1/5
Hair & make-up: 3/5
Accessories: 1/5
Milli: I am totally obsessing over this look. Stepping out in one of her own creations, this 70’s inspired dress, which breathes an air of boho glam, is everything. #Flawless
Outfit: 5/5
Hair & make-up: 5/5
Accessories: 4/5

Marloes: I love the top half of this Rachel Zoe Collection dress; look at the magnificent details and how beautiful it matches with her hair colour! Not really sure about the fringing at the bottom, but the gold accessories and the beautiful make-up make the whole look work.

Kim: I’m not sure what to say about this dress, or if I can even call it that. I know Kim is all for a dramatic appearance but girl you make my name look bad! This Proenza Schouler sheer dress did nothing to reveal her famous figure.The white circle designs all over just confused me, and don’t even get me started on the feather embellished shoulders!
Outfit: 1/5
Hair & Make up: 3/5
Accessories: 2/5
Milli: And she wonders why she gets scrutinised by the media during her pregnancies… You’d think after announcing to the world that you’re expecting, the last outfit you’d opt for is a waist-cinching, skin tight, spank wearing ensemble, which is probably everything a soon-to-be mom should not be wearing! Let it all hang out, girl! Otherwise, I would really like this look…
Outfit: 2/5
Hair & make-up: 4/5
Accessories: 3/5

Marloes: This Proenza Schouler gown is not for you, Kim. The sheer fabric, the feathers, the studs, the high split – it is just too much! And her famous curves deserve more than these granny pants…
Outfit: 2/5
