All-out glamour was on the cards at this celebrity-heavy red carpet.

They’re among the labels you’ll find at every A-list event, and Zuhair Murad and Georges Hobeika certainly didn’t disappoint last night.

The Lebanese designers provided two of the evening’s most standout looks at the annual amfAR Gala, which honours individuals who have helped raise awareness of HIV/AIDS.

The black-tie charity event, held in New York on Wednesday, welcomed stars including Sienna Miller, Ashley Graham and Joan Smalls.


However it was Heidi Klum who really caught our eye in this sequin emblazoned number, courtesy of Murad.

With its spray of shimmer and architectural neckline, the German model looked the perfect mix of glamorous and cutting-edge.

“Sparkles [are] my favorite colour, if that is a colour,” Klum told ET on the night. “I love the shape. It’s a structured dress. I love all the glitz and the glamour, and for an event like today, why not wear it.”

Also turning to a Lebanese label was singer Halsey, who donned a strapless gown by Hobeika.


The star, who performed at the gala, opted for a high-cut LBD (a long black dress on this occasion) that really dialled up the drama.

The amfAR Gala this year honoured director-producer-writer Lee Daniels and W Magazine editor Stefano Tonchi with awards, while the benefit was hosted by actress Taraji P. Henson.

So, what else did the stars wear? Here’s the best of the rest…
