Leonardo Di Caprio has hosted a party in the South of France every year since 2008 with all proceeds from a celeb charity auction benefiting his eco-charity – the Leonardo Di Caprio Foundation. The idea is that all his celeb pals pay to attend and donate prizes to the auction and they all raise a lot of money by bidding on the fantastic auction prizes.
The charity idea works as Leo has raised a huge $59 million for charity since 2008, but this event certainly puts the ‘fun’ into fundraising. Every single person that attends dresses to reflect the glamour of St Tropez, where the event is held. Leo’s girlfriend is a Victoria’s Secret model and she invited all her friends to this year’s event so it was full of models that know how to dress and have access to huge wardrobes.
Just looking at the photos of who attended and what they wore is inspiring, because the models there are on top of the trends and looked gorgeous. We don’t have to spend a fortune to copy their look, we just have to see what they wore. The best dressed were:
Petra posted a photo to Instagram of herself looking stunning in a white maxi dress. White is a great colour for a summer party and in places like St Tropez they have dress codes that guests should only wear white. That wasn’t the case at Leo’s party but Petra had other guests wishing they’d worn white as the colour made everyone notice her and reflected her tan perfectly.
Joan Smalls and Doutzen Kroes
Joan (second from left) showed off her supermodel legs in a red dress and posted the photo above to her Instagram, showing that her ‘squad’ were the most beautiful. I particularly liked her pal Lily’s burned orange dress (centre). It’s a maxi dress, but the split up the side ensures that you’ll stay cool while dancing and feel gorgeous, knowing that you’re flashing a bit of flesh in a sophisticated way.
Lily Donaldson and Sophia Richie
Lily (left) flaunted her figure in a mesh and crochet black dress. It’s a brave move to go so sheer but Lily pulls it off as she walks round with attitude. If you can’t take risks to a special party like one hosted by Leonardo Di Caprio then when can you? Sometimes, you just have to be brave and I think Lily pulled it off. I was also impressed by Lionel Richie’s 17 year-old daughter Sophia, who wore a white jumpsuit. She’s got a similar look to Gigi Hadid – a star is in the making!
Mariah posted a snap on Instagram of herself with the party’s host Leo. She looked stunning in a black evening maxi dress that showed off her curves. Every girl needs a black dress in their wardrobe, something that makes you feel a million dollars and you can wear on multiple occasions. Mariah’s dress doesn’t have any embellishments so that means it’s timeless – it will never date and she could wear it again.
This isn’t the best photo of Kate that Petra Nemcova posted on Instagram, but I can tell that she would have looked fantastic in real-life in a white jumpsuit. Kate’s very sporty so she wants to show off her figure and she did just that. When you wear a jumpsuit, people do stop and stare so it’s a great way to get noticed and that puts you in the party mood. It’s a lot easier to dance in a jumpsuit than it is in a dress, so a jumpsuit is a great option if you’re planning on partying hard.
