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?

Kate Hudson In Smythe – Goop Launches The Summer Season

Kate Hudson In Smythe - Goop Launches The Summer Season

Kate Hudson joined her good friend Gwyneth Paltrow at the Arts Club in London’s Mayfair yesterday evening for Gwynnie’s Goop party to launch the summer season.

Inspired by her Ann Taylor capsule collection, Kate worked an all white look which was perfect for the theme of the occasion – though maybe not so much for the gloomy weather we are having in the capital.

Kate wore an white top and pants with a Smythe sharp-shoulder metallic-coated linen blazer.

The look is very effortless and perfectly laidback for such an occasion; however, her accessories made me go ‘hmmm’.

I never did like those Casadei triple-stacked pumps, and the python bag is to casual for her look.

The quartz necklace and fuchsia lip colour work, but I still feel like this look is missing something. Perhaps if she had the right arm candy I wouldn’t feel this way.

Gina Carano’s ‘Fast & Furious 6’ Promo Tour

Gina Carano's 'Fast & Furious 6' Promo Tour

The ‘Fast & Furious 6’ had its final stop on its world tour yesterday evening in Universal City, California. One of the main stars, Gina Carano, had three great looks during the tour.

London Premiere: Earlier this month, Gina was in London, saluting our fine city wearing a look from the Vivienne Westwood Couture collection which was custom made for the actress. The signature gunmetal-blue sequin gown was styled with an ombre top knot and palladium jewels.

Manila Premiere: The second stop was the Philippines, where Gina wore a Tom Ford bias-cut black gown with a high-low hemline styled with black-and-gold Givenchy sandals, an Amanda Pearl clutch and Melinda Maria earrings.

LA Premiere: Going out with a bang, Gina’s gorgeous curves were showcased wearing a white Amanda Wakeley plunging gown with gunmetal beaded embellishments and a high-low hem with a layered train. With the risen hemline we were able to take a gander at her gunmetal Rupert Sanderson sandals, which perfectly complemented the beaded details on her gown, as did her Christian Louboutin silver fishnet clutch and Dana Rebecca Designs and palladium jewels.

The Burberry is a simple yet elegant gown. The Westwood is nothing we haven’t seen before, even though I love the look, so my favourite here is the Amanda Wakeley. It’s the most unique of the three, it’s soft and feminine with an edge, plus it has reignited my love for embellishments.

Isla Fisher In L’Wren Scott – ‘Now You See Me’ New York Premiere

Isla Fisher In L'Wren Scott - 'Now You See Me' New York Premiere

Isla Fisher attended the ‘Now You See Me’ New York premiere held at AMC Lincoln Square Theater in New York City on Monday evening.

The Australian actress wore a L’Wren Scott Spring 2013 beaded frock for the occasion.

Her nude high-neck sleeveless gown with art-deco beaded details – which wouldn’t look out of place on the set of her other movie, ‘The Great Gatsby’ – fails to excite.

This has nothing to do with the dress itself; Isla is failing to sell it to me.

It could be that I instantly pictured Nicole Kidman wearing this gown, giving it the stature and presence it commands, or that the styling is a bit bland.

Paz Vega In Alexandre Vauthier Couture – Bulgari Hosts ‘Cleopatra’ Cocktail

Paz Vega In Alexandre Vauthier Couture - Bulgari Hosts ‘Cleopatra’ Cocktail

Paz Vega joined Jessica Chastain on the red carpet at the Hotel Marriott in Cannes, France yesterday evening for the Bulgari Hosts ‘Cleopatra’ cocktail party.

The Spanish actress hasn’t been seen on the red carpet since her Stéphane Rolland disaster, so I hope she has a chance to redeem herself and give us a BDOTY-worthy look before this festival ends on Sunday.

Paz opted for a simple black-and-white Alexandre Vauthier Spring 2013 Couture look consisting of a white silk blouse and high-waisted silk pants, which is infinitely sexier than her last outing.

Black satin pumps and an Alexandre Vauthier clutch accessorized her look, with the stand-out piece being that breathtaking Bulgari necklace.

Carey Mulligan In Nina Ricci – ‘The Great Gatsby’ Sydney Premiere

Carey Mulligan In Nina Ricci - ‘The Great Gatsby’ Sydney Premiere

Following a short trip to promote her new movie ‘The Great Gatsby’ in Cannes last week, Carey Mulligan took to the red carpet at Moore Park in Australia for the Sydney premiere.

Despite the wet conditions, Carey opted for an arm-baring look from the Nina Ricci Fall 2013 collection.

Having stuck to a black-and-white colour palette during Cannes, this look featured a Chantilly lace blush-coloured bustier paired with black cropped pants, rather than the skirt this look was presented with on the runway.

Many of you will be delighted to discover that Carey’s makeup artist travelled with her on this leg of her promo tour. Just that pink lip colour alone brightens up her face, preventing her from looking so washed out and tired.

Giving her Brian Atwood ‘Aida’ peep-toes a break, the British actress wore Saint Laurent t-bar sandals on this occasion, with Tiffany jewels and wavy tresses completing her look.

Fan Bingbing In Chris by Christopher Bu – ‘Emperor’ Cannes Film Festival Press Junket

Fan Bingbing In Chris by Christopher Bu - 'Emperor' Cannes Film Festival Press Junket

Fan Bingbing attended the ‘Emperor’ press junket with Jackie Chan during the Cannes Film Festival at Torch at Vegaluna Beach Club in France last week.

The actress used the occasion to showcase the Chris by Christopher Bu Spring 2013 collection. A first for her stylist/designer Bu Kewen.

He has taken Fan from a then little-known actress at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival to propelling Fan to Vanity Fair’s Best Dressed List in 2012, plus he styled her three looks on Oscar night this year.
It was after the Oscars that Bu launched his first women’s collection, named ‘From London with Love’.

For someone who co-designed Fan’s ‘Crane’ and ‘Dragon’ gowns, this collection is infinitely more wearable, opting for a playful aesthetic with many colourful prints, stripes and delicate pastels.

Fan selected a checked look featuring a yellow-and-white blouse with a high-waist black-and-white skirt, to which she added those can’t-live-without Giuseppe Zanotti platform peep-toes.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley In Mary Katrantzou – Gatwick Airport

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley In Mary Katrantzou - Gatwick Airport

If I could look half as good as Rosie Huntington-Whiteley while arriving off a 10-hour flight, I would be extremely happy.

The model/actress arrived at Gatwick Airport yesterday from LAX, redefining airport chic.

No prizes for guessing that the piece which piqued my interest the most was her Mary Katrantzou Spring 2013 currency-print blazer, but the overall look is very inspiring.

The rest of her look includes a simple grey tee and AG Adriano Goldschmied ‘The Legging Ankle’ jeans, which she accessorized with a nutmeg Viktor & Rolf ‘Bombette’ bag, an uber-chic fedora and nude Christian Louboutin pumps.

I covet every piece. Do you?
