    Hello there, and welcome to the forum.
    Ask "What's the difference between ...?"

    The usual is to use the apostrophe. However, if someone (and their lifestyle) are famous enough, then the apostrophe might not be there; in that case, expect "the" before. Do you have examples for us to look at?

    It depends. Show us some examples, and we'll comment. Remember to write full sentences.

    Note the corrections.
    In that case, I don't think you need to worry about it. They can all work. Are you actually going to focus on Putin or on the type of lifestyle he has.

    Putin's Lifestyle would be more focused on Putin, whereas The Putin Lifestyle would be more focused on the type of lifestyle that Putin has.
