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?

Fan Bingbing In Ulyana Sergeenko Couture - Trophée Chopard

Fan Bingbing joined Sonam Kapoor at the Trophee Chopard party yesterday evening during Cannes Film Festival and she wasn’t wearing Elie Saab, much to the delight of many of you.

She looked divine, wearing an ice-blue Ulyana Sergeenko Spring 2013 Couture gown; however, it was a case of been-there-already-done-that thanks to Zhang Yuqi at the opening ceremony.

While the gown is not exactly the same, the similarities are mostly focused on the bodice, with the same off-the-shoulder detail and plunging neckline.

What blows me away here are her stunning Chopard jewels and elegant braided updo, which seems to be her go-to style at the moment.

You say you’re bored with Fan Bingbing in Elie Saab and here she is wearing a similar gown worn just days after another actress; is Bingbing’s Queen-of-Cannes crown slipping?

Zhang Yuqi In Ulyana Sergeenko - ‘The Great Gatsby’ Premiere & Cannes Film Festival Opening Ceremony

This Asian beauty was one of the first to take the red carpet this evening for ‘The Great Gatsby’ Cannes Film Festival premiere, however, Getty incorrectly tagged her as Fan Bingbing, so I had to ask who this mysterious lady was on Twitter. Thanks to some helpful readers, she has been indentified at Zhang Yuqi.

She wore a Spring 2013 Couture gown by Russian designer Ulyana Sergeenko, whose stunning creations we don’t see enough of on the red carpet.

Stamping her mark at this ceremony, Zhang’s striking pea-green off-the-shoulder gown with a deep plunging neckline was styled with marcel waves and a cherry red Jimmy Choo ‘Claire’ clutch.

This look was also one of my top 10 of the night.

Who was in your top 10 tonight? The best dressed poll will follow later this evening.

Rita Ora In Ulyana Sergeenko - 2013 Brit Awards

Rita Ora appeared to have adopted Eddie Redmayne’s leaning red carpet pose while attending the 2013 Brit Awards this evening in London.

Clearly she was inspire by Michael Jackson’s ‘Smooth Criminal’ 45 degree lean while working this pose.

The singer wore a couture gown from Ulyana Sergeenko’s Spring 2013 collection with a custom made snake ring by Jennifer Fisher.

On the model, the duchess-satin sleeveless gown with a cinched-in waist, draped skirt and open back looks very elegant, but that beauty is lost on Rita.

There is just too much ‘try’ in her try-hardness, which throws me off this look.

The back is very unflattering, the length is way too long – long enough to cut another gown from it – and the overall style is just boring.

She has moments of brilliance, but at times I just don’t get her style. It’s just so forced.

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.
