An Evening To Celebrate The Global Fund

An Evening To Celebrate The Global Fund

Many other fashionistas joined the Beckhams at Apsley House in London yesterday evening for the celebration of the Global Fund’s first Green Carpet Challenge.

Jemma Kidd: The makeup artist/fashion model wore an Antonio Berardi Resort 2014 blue-black-and-white geometric-print dress styled with Roger Vivier pumps and a black clutch. For me there is a huge disconnect between the dress and the shoes. A sexy pair of Manolos or edgy footwear by Casadei or Kirkwood would’ve been more complementary.

Sienna Miller: After taking her front-row seat as brand ambassador at the Burberry Prorsum Spring 2014 show, the actress wore a Dolce & Gabbana dress featuring the brand’s hallmarks: floral and lace. Having seen this dress in various guises on the red carpet before, it’s a little hard to get that excited about it, especially when she styled it with flats.

Jodi Kidd: Joining her sister at the event, the former race car driver who has recently returned to modelling wore an Preen navy-and-neon-yellow floral dress styled with sexy lace Jimmy Choos, bracelets and a black clutch. Thankfully, her shoe game is better than her sister’s. You may remember that fellow model Helena Christensen wore the same dress earlier this year.

Natalia Vodianova In Christian Dior Couture – ‘Love Ball’ In Support Of The Naked Heart Foundation

Natalia Vodianova In Christian Dior Couture - 'Love Ball' In Support Of The Naked Heart Foundation

Natalia Vodianova hosted her annual ‘Love Ball’ to raise money for The Naked Heart Foundation held at Opera Garnier in Monaco on Saturday.

The model founded the Naked Heart Foundation in 2004 after the Beslan school siege, which claimed the lives of over 300 people. The charity’s mission is simple: to provide children across Russia with safe outdoor play facilities.

Natalie always wears red for these occasions, and this was no exception as she donned a Christian Dior Fall 2013 Couture gown which featured an embellished bodice, fitted waist and flowing full skirt.

The dress is simply breathtaking, but I am not a fan of the velvet Dior clutch. Red was the theme, yet the clutch photographs dark-pink.

I am also not a fan of the pearl necklace with the embellished bodice.

Curly tresses and a red lip colour provided the finishing touches to her Russian red look.

Natalia Vodianova In Christian Dior – Out In Saint Tropez

Natalia Vodianova In Christian Dior - Out In Saint Tropez

Natalia Vodianova was spotted taking a stroll with Diane von Furstenberg in Saint Tropez, France on a sunny Sunday afternoon.

The model stood out wearing a Christian Dior Resort 2014 skirt, which she styled with a simple white tee with a paillettes pocket detail by Belgium brand, Essentiel.

Her exact skirt didn’t take to the runway, yet it is reminiscent of the blue-orange-and-pink design which was presented as a strappy dress worn by fellow Russian Miroslava Duma during Couture Fashion Week.

A pair of blue-and-white striped classic Toms canvas slip-on espadrilles shoes and dark sunnies completed her look.

Christian Dior Fall 2013 Moscow Show

Christian Dior Fall 2013 Moscow Show

Raf Simons presented his Christian Dior Fall 2013 collection to the women of Russia yesterday.

Natalia Vodianova: Russia’s first lady of fashion was of course in attendance, wearing a pretty pink Dior double-breasted pant suit with a Lady Dior bag, white sandals and signature barely there makeup.

Miroslava Duma: The fashion editor, who recently returned from Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week, wasn’t showing any fashion week fatigue, looking lovely in her second Dior Resort 2014 dress, which ironically supersedes the Fall 2013 collection she was probably watching for the second time. Her colourful panelled and black-lace sleeveless dress was styled with black pumps with blue toe-caps and a red clutch. You may remember that Charlene, Princess of Monaco wore this same dress almost immediately after it was presented on the runway with a blue-lace panel.

Ravshana Kurkova: There were many other socialites who attended this event, but Ravshana caught my eye. She styled her Dior Pre-Fall 2013 hoop skirt – which we’ve seen three times in coral and once in blue – with a Peter Pilotto Resort 2013 yellow sleeveless jacquard-silk blouse with swirling sequin embellishments and a contrasting white collar (seen on Jada Pinkett-Smith). Since many of us are fatigued by this skirt already, I really appreciate the way she refreshed this look, especially with those delightful yellow sandals.

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 lamé 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.

Natalia Vodianova In Ulyana Sergeenko Couture – ‘Naked Heart’ Foundation and ‘Film Aid’ Gala

Natalia Vodianova In Ulyana Sergeenko - 'Naked Heart' Foundation and 'Film Aid' Gala

Natalia Vodianova hosted the ‘Naked Heart’ Foundation and ‘Film Aid’ Gala during Cannes Film Festival yesterday evening wearing a dress with a very familiar neckline.

The dress was, of course, designed by Ulyana Sergeenko, who has also dressed Zhang Yuqi and Fan Bingbing during this festival.

Natalia’s custom-made red taffeta dress with the designer’s signature off-the-shoulder detail and plunging neckline was styled with Vionnet ankle-strap pumps (which I’m pretending not to notice), a gold clutch and a gold necklace with multiple onyx-stones.

Are you tiring of seeing many variations of the same dress, or do you appreciate that Ulyana, like most designers, has her own signature style much like Vivienne Westwood and her corseted dresses?
