Natalia Vodianova In Stella McCartney – ‘Arts For Life’ Charity Auction

Natalia Vodianova In Stella McCartney - 'Arts For Life' Charity Auction

Natalia Vodianova glided into the Art For Life charity auction, which she co-hosted with Nadja Swarovski and Susan Hayden, at the Saatchi Gallery in London, England on Monday.

The model had the Midas touch, as she donned a long-sleeve Stella McCartney gold lamĂ© gown with a short train. The look was smartly styled with a sustainable wooden clutch from the designer’s Winter 2013 collection.

The natural beauty maintained a minimalist approach with hardly the hint of makeup and loosely unfixed waves, which provided a casual counterpoint to all that metallic glitter.

But I cannot help but wonder if a more dramatic updo or a bold lippie would have upped the glam factor for this ‘haute’ host even more.

    Her hair and makeup are way too weak, bland and casual and don’t live up to the glamour of the gown, she needed to put more effort esp. into that hair, an updo would’ve been so much nicer. The gown is nice and standout in gold, but with that plain neckline and long sleeves is starting to feel a tad matronly.

    The dress is awful. Looks like a costume for a princess in an historical movie.

    She looks like she’s playing dress-up.

    The gown is way too mature, it’s aging her and it doesn’t really fit well. The hair and makeup don’t go with this look.

    I have to agree with my fellow critics, as much as I want this to work, well, it just isn’t.

    I’m not entirely sold on the combination of style and fabric that the gown itself presents. It’s okay, I guess.
    My main complaint is the same as that of others here. The hair and make-up are too casual.

    She is absolutely swamped by this dress. The volume of fabric in the shoulders and over the bust gives her no definite shape. It looks too big. The style of the dress is far too mature. A poor choice.

    Falls flat. Looks drab-y

    Hair and makeup needed to be more polished.
