Vanessa Williams In Dries van Noten – BAFTA Los Angeles 17th Annual Awards Season Tea Party

The BAFTA Los Angeles 17th Annual Awards Season Tea Party took place in LA last night.

“Desperate Housewives” star Vanessa Williams took to the red carpet wearing a Dries van Noten ‘Darby’ dress from the Fall 2010 collection.

Her particular dress didn’t take the runway, but you can tell its’ Dries by the distinctive floral print.

The multi-coloured brush stroke print asymmetrical neckline dress with a cascading frill going down the back, was paired with the most unfortunate black and grey striped Sergio Rossi heels.

      Rebecca. I have seen all the dresses from last night. I am going through them one by one as fast as I can. Please can you give me time to post them in the order I wish to post them.

    Yep that’s Dries! No to the shoes but kudos for her wearing him.

    PS this dress is probably the least nice variation .Sorry to nit pick there is no aubergine in the print. The print is olive green, orangey yellow and variations of amethyst with a black brush stroke over it–although some dresses have army green or blue brush stokes over the pattern. You may recall Maggie Gyllan?..wore a similar pattern to the Oscars last year.

    Too matronly for Vanessa Williams. This girl can work a Balmain dress and look 25.

    I dislike the shoes, but my heart jsut beats a little bit faster in the presence of Dires van Noten.

    For the occasion, I really like it. It’s better than wearing some borin suit.
