Supermodel Irina Shayk wore this skin-sational Roberto Cavalli gown first in black, to the premiere of All is Lost at Cannes. Beyoncé glowed in her white version of the dress while celebrating the 10 year anniversary of the 40/40 Club. Shayk’s had sequin embellishment, while Bey added a touch of sparkle with a barely-there cross necklace and jewel-cut gold clutch. Are you all about Irina’s smoldering style or Beyoncé’s white-hot look?
