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?

Natalia Vodianova In Louis Vuitton & Minnie Mouse In Lanvin – Disneyland Paris 20th Anniversary Celebration

Natalia Vodianova In Louis Vuitton - Disneyland Paris 20th Anniversary

Natalia Vodianova helped Disneyland Paris celebrate its 20th anniversary at the iconic adventure wonderland on Saturday in France.

The model, who struck a pose alongside a very chic Minnie Mouse, wore a Louis Vuitton dress.

Her red sleeveless dress, which hails from the Pre-Fall 2012 collection, has been worn before: in yellow by Reese Witherspoon; black by Dianna Agron; and green by Rooney Mara.

Natalia made it her own by adding a Yayoi Kusama for Louis Vuitton red-and-white polka-dot collar with gold stud accents and a red satin bow-accented waistband.

Keeping the look casual, she wore a pair of eggplant brogues.

Minnie Mouse

Minnie looked super cute, wearing a long sleeve purple dress – which looks like it was inspired by the Lanvin Fall 2012 collection – with silver pumps and a red tiara.

Update: Lanvin have confirmed that Minnie’s dress was indeed designed especially for her by Alber Elbaz.

Natalia Vodianova In Christian Dior – Bal de la Rose du Rocher

Natalia Vodianova In Christian Dior - Bal de la Rose du Rocher

Natalia Vodianova joined royals and other dignitaries on the red carpet for the ‘Bal de la Rose du Rocher’ in aid of the Princess Grace Foundation, which celebrated the 150th anniversary of the SBM at Sporting Monte-Carlo in Monaco on Saturday.

While this Christian Dior look is one we’ve seen a few times now on the red carpet, this black cashmere long-sleeved top and iridescent blue organza floral skirt is much preferred over Princess Charlene’s and Charlotte Casiraghi’s looks.

‘Mise En Dior’ metal with gold finish cream resin pearl earrings, Dior Fine Jewelry ‘Rose Dior Bagatelle’ white gold and diamonds necklace, Dior black pumps with a pink strap, and a silver clutch completed her look.

Front Row @ Christian Dior Fall 2013

Dior Front Row 1

A group of bold-named beauties held court at Christian Dior’s Fall 2013 presentation to see Raf Simons’ arty collection in Paris on Friday afternoon. While none were as dramatically dressed as fellow show-goer Ulyana Sergeenko, they still impressed with top-to-toe looks from the designer.

Marion Cotillard: The French actress played it safe in a simple black coat worn over a monochrome dress and paired with black tights and pointy stilettos. The one perk that kept this look interesting to me; the adorable over-the-shoulder box handbag.

Olivia Palermo: Stepping out in a dress from Dior’s Spring 2013 collection, Olivia worked the stripes and the fringe to her advantage. She kept warm with a black overcoat that featured yet another trend: fur. I loved her bright matte red lip and the flash of patent lavender on her shoe.

Anna Dello Russo: Always willing to break the style rule book, Vogue Japan’s editor-at-large was the only one who eschewed Dior. Instead, she took fur to the max in her Fendi number, ripped right off the Fall 2013 runway. The result? An interesting mix of primitive and punk with a techno edge. Her fuzzy clutch was just as “hair”-raising.
