Natalia Vodianova Outdoes Kanye West in Paris

A sideways twist on the high-low silhouette, in Louis Vuitton.

Natalia Vodianova

Who: Natalia Vodianova.

When: Wednesday, July 6.

Where: The Fondation Louis Vuitton Love Ball.

What: A red, black, and white color-blocked Louis Vuitton Cruise 2017 dress with sparkly sandals and an embellished clutch.

Why: Between the slashes of black across the bodice, the geometric color-blocking detail, and the red-and-white checked sleeve (and coordinating gem-encrusted cuff), this design gives off serious racetrack vibes. Which is to say, sporty and fresh, a counterpoint to the über-feminine, ruffly ensembles she frequently opts for. It strikes the perfect balance between mini dress and maxi dress — with her dramatic asymmetrical hem, Vodianova gets to have it both ways.
