Flexing her fashion muscles, Natalie hit the headlines for her breath-taking gown, a reproduction of a design created by Christian Dior for his Fall/Winter 1949 Couture collection. The original 'Junon' dress, a strapless piece with a frothy, petal-adorned skirt, is currently available to visit at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art.

But Natalie is not the first major name to have paid fashion tribute to the iconic gown. In fact, Miley Cyrus actually wore a very similar reproduction by Zuhair Murad in 2009 to the Academy Awards. Miley's version of the 'Junon' featured embellished straps and a plunging scalloped neckline. The then-teen acting sensation teamed her gown with a lustrous, cream belt to cinch in her waist and, like Natalie's version, it featured plenty of decadent embellishment.
