Spot the difference: Natalia at the Stella McCartney show in October 2011, and at the Dior show today
Natalia Vodianova is not only one of the world's most beautiful women, she is among the elite group of supermodels in the highest earning bracket. In the recent past, the mother of three, who split from her British aristocrat husband Justin Portman early last year, has undergone a noticeable transformation.
At today's Christian Dior show, the model, 30, arrived on the arm of her new man Antoine Arnault, the son of fashion's most powerful business owner: Bernard Arnault of LVMH. And what a difference a new boyfriend makes.

Gone was the girl who wore her hair loose and natural, who favoured flat shoes and skinny jeans with her Stella McCartney tank tops and easy-breezy jumpsuits. In her place was a 'lady who lunches' with big hair, wearing a tiny purple mini-dress and spike heels. In fact, Natalia looked nothing less than a junior Fashion First Lady as she appeared at the show of the label owned by her boyfriend's father.
So what do you make of Natalia's transformation? Let us know below...
