Bella Hadid & Celebs Embraced Very Edgy Looks at the 2017 amfAR Gala

From head to toe, skin was the “it” statement on the red carpet at the 2017 amfAR Gala.

The annual fundraiser, held Thursday during the Cannes Film Festival, attracted boldface-name supermodels and entertainers lending a boost of star power to support the foundation’s efforts for AIDS and HIV research.

Among some of the raciest looks at the soiree was Bella Hadid in a custom sheer Ralph and Russo gown embellished with crystal detail. The supermodel teamed the dress with Rene Caovilla’s sexy silver Snake sandals.

More sheer ensembles were paraded on the red carpet, including Nicki Minaj in a sheer lace Roberto Cavalli Couture dress and Balmain sandals.

Shanina Shaik and Petra Nemcova embraced body confidence in barely-there ensembles. Shaik had on a silver Philipp Plein gown that partially exposed her chest and silver Jimmy Choo sandals. Nemcova flashed a similar amount of flesh in an ice-blue dress with Giuseppe Zanotti’s silver patent sandals.
