Ulyana Sergeenko In Chrisitian Dior Couture – Christian Dior Fall 2013 Presentation

Ulyana Sergeenko In Chrisitian Dior Couture - Christian Dior Fall 2013 Presentation

Street style favourite and fashion designer Ulyana Sergeenko, was spotted in Paris en route to the Christian Dior Fall 2013 presentation this afternoon.

Unlike many of the celebrities in the front row, Ulyana is one of those rare people who actually buys Couture.

The Russian beauty donned a black cashmere top with a voluminous blue floral skirt both from the Christian Dior Fall 2012 Couture collection.

Keeping the dramatic nature of her looking going she added a black floral appliqué veiled fascinator.

While you might consider this a tad overdramatic to sit front row at a fashion show, this is probably a normal day time appropriate look for her.

MAC & Carine Roitfeld ‘Le Bal’

I hope you all keep up with my tweets and Instagram pictures from the MAC & Carine Roitfeld ‘Le Bal’ celebrations which took place yesterday at the Hotel Salomon de Rothschild during Paris Fashion Week.

One of the first to arrive was the lovely Karlie Kloss, my hero, who looked gorgeous wearing an Alexander Wang Spring 2013 fresh-off-the-runway look.

She got the ‘smoky eye’ memo, as did Poppy Delevingne, who smouldered on the red carpet wearing an Emilio Pucci black long-sleeve dress with a gold dragon from the recent Spring 2013 collection.

Carine Roitfeld arrived wearing signature all black Givenchy avec smoky eyes, the inspiration for the whole evening.

Ulyana Sergeenko In Ulyana Sergeenko Couture – Jean-Paul Gaultier Fall 2012 Couture Fashion Show

Ulyana Sergeenko showed her Fall 2012 Couture collection for the first time during Paris Fashion Week on Tuesday and by Wednesday afternoon she was already wearing a look from the collection.

Proving that there is no better brand ambassador for her collection than herself, much like Victoria Beckham, the Russian designer selected the jewel in the crown: the black-lace, lightly embellished gown.

She wore the look to the Jean-Paul Gaultier Fall 2012 Couture presentation yesterday afternoon; styling the look with a black veil and cream ankle boots.

Her hair was styled into tight pinned-up curls, just like the model from her presentation, plus she added a neon-pink lip colour which matched her nails for a pop of colour.

Do you like this chic look or did she take it too far with the veil?

Ulyana Sergeenko Fall 2012 Couture

When I arrived at the Théâtre Marigny in Paris yesterday afternoon for the Ulyana Sergeenko Fall 2012 Couture show, I thought it was an outside presentation.

That’s because many of the beautiful women waiting outside to see the show were wearing pieces from the designer’s collection which included her signature voluminous printed maxi skirts worn over a knit sweater and signature head scarves or wool hats.

For her first runway show during Paris Fashion Week, the Russian designer/street-style star certainly pulled in a crowd of major industry players like Grace Coddington, Carine Roitfeld, Tim Blanks, Anna Dello Russo and Patrick Demarchelier.

With a line-up of top models, the show started with a military-style coat before moving onto the designer’s signature look I mentioned above.

Apron dresses, oversized coats, capes, fur-lined parkas, boyish jodhpurs, a chic white suit, folk jackets, sweaters paired with fitted pants, an uber-cute floral embroidered mini dress styled with red-hot knee-boots and long-sleeve playsuits – one with a military sash – added a playfulness to this collection with plenty of Russian references.

The Russianness came through via the accessories, which included military hats, lace helmet, medals of honour, military boots, babushkas and big furry hats.

Other accessories included back packs, hand-carved wooden heels, embroidered headbands and epaulettes, lace-covered flasks, shakos, clutches and gloves.

We saw a few evening looks. The bright red satin gown was the standout piece, but the pretty black lace dress was my favourite.

Natalia Vodianova, the Russian supermodel and a Ulyana Sergeenko client, fittingly closed the show in a floor-sweeping black coat styled with a floral embroidered tulle veil.

It will be interesting to see if the exposure of Paris Fashion Week will push Ulyana’s signature style into the mainstream.  Is Hollywood ready for a collection which mixes military, fantasy and femininity?

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Nicole Kidman, Amber Heard, Natalia Vodianova and several Russian socialites.

19.12.11 Style Spotlight

Style Spotlight: Ulyana Sergeenko

Ulyana Sergeenko is a Russian photographer, designer, stylist, blogger, fashionista and occasional model.

I have been meaning to do this Style Spotlight on her for a while as I first saw Ulyana back in July during Fall 2011 Couture Fashion Week in Paris. Since then I have noticed her popping up on a lot of style blogs.

I was immediately drawn to the unique beauty, doll-like features, perfect pout, impeccable style and incredible grace – she doesn’t walk, she floats. Anyone who has seen her will know exactly what I’m talking about.

It is impossible to not notice her. Her style is a combination of 19th century Russia with a fifties vibe. The interesting thing is she mixes things up all the time which makes her fascinating to watch plus she’s not a slave to trends.

Her credentials are often scoffed at because she’s married to a billionaire, but you can’t buy style (see ‘Herve Leger loving’ billionairess Tamara Ecclestone).Read More…
