Russian Star Elena Lenina Red Carpet Looks

When searching the web these past few weeks for the best Cannes celeb jewelry looks, we came across Elena Lenina (and included a photo of her in our Cannes Film Festival Jewelry post).

She is our new fave to follow – seriously, how can you not love (or hate) her crazy hair, outfits, and jewelry (Russian Lady Gaga maybe…?). Take a look at some of these looks.

For those of you wondering who Elena Lenina is (don’t worry, we didn’t know either), she is a Russian and French model, TV presenter, and writer. Elena is married to French businessman and aristocrat Pascal-Florent-Eduard. Check out Elena’s wedding hair. Talk about an up-do!

Which of the above is your favorite Elena Lenina look? We’re going to have to pick the pink dress with the huge ball chain necklace (or whatever it is), just because it’s so overtop that we can’t help but love it.

I believe that luxury is a necessity. It has nothing to do with practicality or value. Luxury to me, is simply something gorgeous, decadent and abseloutly out of my range. Basically, if I can have/buy/save for it, then chances are – it ain’t a true luxury. For example, the smallest chocolate box from an ‘artisan’ chocolatiere (or whatever they’re called) is not a luxury. A giant, heart-shaped, eat-em-all and you’ll be sick box costing four figures is….. And that’s something I can only dream of.

The dress Israeli-model Bar Refaeli was wearing in Cannes is luxury. It’s gorgeous, decadent and really expensive – I mean really, really expensive. We’re talking over a million dollars. The jewel encrusted lilac sheath by Alberta Ferrati features splashes of diamonds and other gemstones and is about to be auctioned off. In this case, proceeds from the gown will benefit the AIDS research charity AMFAR.

According to Refaeli, “It’s worth a $ 1 million and I definitely feel like $ 10 million.” And no, if any men are thinking of bidding, she doesn’t come with the dress.
