Miss Universe Olivia Culpo goes for an Oscar-worth look for the Amy Winehouse Foundation benefit

Friday March 22, 2013 - 13h00

Miss Universe 2013 Olivia Culpo participated in her most recent event when she went to the Amy Winehouse Foundation benefit in New York the other day. The pageant princess joined Miss USA Nana Meriwether and a score of other guests doing good in the name of the late singer! Just another day in the life of Miss Universe, you know (Olivia's been busy since she was crowned in December.)

Judging from Olivia's dress for the #AWFgala, you'd think she was going to the Oscars, rather than a charity event. High glamour is one way to describe her look-- a combination of bright red lipstick, shimmering diamond earrings, a volume-filled updo and a sparkling dress with a plunging back.

Bet the dress and earrings would raise a passel of money for the Foundation. But in the end, so do the photo rights.

Anyway, back to Olivia. If you ever doubted that she was a femme fatale, that was put to rest by Olivia's choice of nail polish, a classic red, which matched her lips to the Nth degree. No clashing here, it's all about the tried-and-true classics.

Funnily, the attendees of this Gala seemed more polished-looking than Amy ever did... but any excuse to dress up for a good cause, right?
