Dita von Teese In Valentino Couture – the-miumiu-london

Dita von Teese joined Alexa Chung at the Cafe Royal on day two of the-miumiu-london temporary women’s club in London yesterday evening.

After spending the afternoon at the ‘Valentino: Master Of Couture’ exhibition showing at Somerset House, I love that the burlesque star went back into the archives to select this Valentino Spring 2008 Couture dress.

Her black-and-white floral-jacquard dress with puffed shoulders and an open neckline was cinched at the waist with a black leather belt.

Signature Dita styling, including retro waves, red lippie and Christian Louboutin heels, completed her look.

    She looks polished as per usual but I find this look a bit too doll-like cutesy for Dita whose slightly in-your-face bustiness isn’t quite working with this cute girly look, and her waist appears to be a bit overly unnaturally cinched in.

    She looks impeccable, but what a tiny waist!

    I adore Dita in this look. On the pin-thin model it looks almost childish, but Dita makes it a beautiful, womanly dress.

      typical dita, breathing life into otherwise unnoticeable dresses!

    Perfection. Definitely worthy of a BDOTW nomination. It is going to be so hard to choose this week!

      +2 she looks amazing. Picking BDOTW is definitely going to be a challenge!

    This is spectacular on Dita. The way that skirt sits on her = perfection. She brings to vivid life a dress that seems nothing particularly special on the model.

    • Francesca November 29, 2012 at 20:56 #

      Well said.

  8. Christine November 29, 2012 at 20:31 #

    Love this!

  9. dee November 29, 2012 at 20:43 #

    She looks absolutely stunning. I love this. I think this is one of her best looks.

  10. Odette November 29, 2012 at 20:43 #

    BDOTW fo’ sho’.

    Her usual formula works so well with this look.

  11. CreoleLady November 29, 2012 at 20:52 #

    Love.

  12. Amy November 29, 2012 at 21:45 #

    this is perfection. this dress is so Dita

  13. EmmaWoodhouse November 29, 2012 at 22:39 #

    I love this dress on the runway but not on Dita. Frankly it doesn’t seem to suit her–too girly and innocent. Also, the neckline is overly revealing on her. I do love the black and white coloring and her hair looks lovely here.

  14. Agathe November 29, 2012 at 23:03 #

    Sorry for everyone who hates it, but the cleavage is exactly what Dita needed to make this cutesy dress her own.
    Go, Dita!
    I would have released the belt a tiny bit.

  15. Dani November 30, 2012 at 01:11 #

    I love it on her. Sometimes she wears outfits that are too severe or too age-ing on her, but the youthful shape of this dress is a good complement to the luxe details.

  16. Dhppy November 30, 2012 at 01:12 #

    The dress looks so much nicer on Von Teese than on the model. She is the perfect person to wear it.

    I believe Dita originally specialized in “tightlacing” or corset waist training, it appears to be in effect here.

  17. Lyo November 30, 2012 at 03:43 #

    Oh, I think I need a dress just like this… I’m in love!
    BDOTW worthy, no doubt. Perfection with the red lips.

  18. Alina November 30, 2012 at 07:07 #

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!

  19. Linda November 30, 2012 at 12:34 #

    She looks so pretty and that’s one of the nicest, freshest Valentino dresses I’ve seen in ages, so good for her for going back to a 2008 design.

  20. kane November 30, 2012 at 12:53 #

    Lurve this! I was going to say, especially after the Jenny Packham one a few days ago, which I found a bit too simple then, but going back to it again, I have to say the latter has grown a lot on me too. Love her!

    Sadly yesterday was day 3 and the last day of miu miu at the cafe royal. It was the most amazing event I have ever been to. Did you go.

    • Fashion Critic November 30, 2012 at 15:09 #

      I went on Wednesday, it was a great event and such a beautiful space

  22. serapart November 30, 2012 at 14:51 #

    I´m in love with this <3

  23. TeaAtTwo November 30, 2012 at 14:51 #

    She’s had a great week style wise, this is a pretty flawless look, I like how she sexified (just making up words;)) this sweet dress but not in vulgar way.
