Runway to Real Life: Carolyn Murphy in Tom Ford, Alek Wek in Calvin Klein Collection and More (Forum Buzz)

Leave it to a model to wear the hell out of a runway look. The four women featured this week are total pros both on and off the catwalk — and designers love them for it. Carolyn Murphy attended a fancy dinner in her honor, while Joan Smalls, Anja Rubik and Alek Wek got dressed up for amfAR’s The Inspiration Gala New York. Here’s a look at how they all turned it up.

When you’re a supermodel who designs a lingerie collection with British brand cheekfrills, you get a private dinner in your honor. And when you’re Carolyn, you show up in a glitzy gold Tom Ford number. We think she killed it with her sleek hair, neutral makeup and minimal accessories, but some forum members weren’t as impressed.

“That’s just a horrible Tom Ford dress,” Street_a_Licious posted.

Lola701 agreed. “That Tom Ford dress doesn’t look good on Carolyn,” she wrote.

Are we wrong for thinking she looked awesome? Perhaps not, but we can agree to disagree.
