Dare to bare: Kylie Minogue hits fashion nail on the head with nude number

hellomagazine.com Three leading ladies - three truly gorgeous gowns.

Kylie Minogue, Halle Berry and Eva Mendes turned the red carpet into a runway when they all stepped out in show-stopping numbers for a New York gala this week.

First up was Australian singer Kylie who set the trend for the evening in a striking gown in nude – this season's hottest colour.

While the shade is a tricky one to pull off, the petite star did so with aplomb, sparkling on the night in a dress featuring a sheer bust covered in sequins and beads and a bandage-style skirt that perfectly enhanced her curves.

She wasn’t the only one making headlines with her wardrobe. Silver screen beauty Halle was just as bold in her selection, opting for a chic grey number.

Fitted and very flattering from the front, the on-trend dress also had a show-stopping secret – the back of it was a striking construction of chiffon arranged into petal shapes.

When it came to full-length fashion, Eva reigned supreme.

The American beauty brought a real touch of Hollywood glamour to the event, in a dusky pink Alberta Ferretti gown featuring elaborate beading work around the shoulders and lying in fringes across the dress.

All the ladies were dressed to impress to show their support for the fourth annual gala held by DKMS – the world's largest bone marrow donor centre.

Other stars at the event, held to raise money to help fight leukaemia, included Jon Bon Jovi, British singer Estelle and top designer Vera Wang.
