I never thought I would ever see a Christian Lacroix Couture finale wedding dress off the runway, but Dita von Teese looked angelic in Paris as she posed in the gown on a shoot for Harper’s Bazaar Russia this weekend.
The ivory Fall 2009 Couture gown is embroidered with a gold leaf design, and accented with colourful roses.
Dita even wore the lace sleeved gown with the runway necklace.
I love that we get to see this look off the runway, but it would’ve been even better if they’d changed Dita’s hair and make-up for this particular shot to make the character she is trying to portray more believable.
That runway headscarf would’ve made a world of difference.
Dita’s hair and make-up on the other hand is perfect for this particular shot.
The star leans against a bicycle on a Parisian street, with her Valentino Fall 2009 Couture black coat unbuttoned revealing her stockings and suspenders and a lacy Wonderbra.
Her look is of course paired with Louboutin heels.
I love the peacock style ruffled fan on this coat.
It will be interesting to see the finished editorial.
