Dita von Teese In Carolina Herrera - Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts Inaugural Gala

Dita von Teese joined a host of stars on the red carpet for the Wallis Annenberg Center For Performing Arts Inaugural Gala held at the Wallis Annenberg Center in Beverly Hills, California yesterday evening.

The best thing about Dita’s current Carolina Herrera phase is that Carolina doesn’t make that many black gowns, so we are seeing Dita experiment more with colour.

On this occasion she selected an amethyst floral lace dress with beaded shoulder detail and amethyst pony beaded belt from Carolina Herrera’s Fall 2013 collection; styled with a matching clutch and of course her signature red lips.

Despite wish the neckline was more open, I love the gothic romantic vibe I get from Dita in this dress.

You may remember that Minka Kelly wore this same dress to the Met Gala.

    Minka Kelly wore the same dress at 2013 Met Gala.
    Ditta looks better.

      +1 Per usual, Minka didn’t do anything for such a fabulous dress. Definitely Dita for the win!

      Thank Iva. I forgot about that one…maybe purposely :D

    Dita looks flawless!

    I always love Dita!

    I would have loved this even more if she’d worn it in about two months time.

    I love this dress on her but I wish she wore her hair up.

    • Caro Chanel October 18, 2013 at 15:12 #

      Yes, me too

    • Christine October 21, 2013 at 12:45 #

      Me too.

    I prefer this look on Dita much more than Minka, but there is still something about this gown that i really don’t like, and after this rerun i still can’t figure it out.

    The bias is strong on this one, Is2g.

    Minka got dragged because she was too curvy for this dress but Dita gets a pass? Hmmm.

    • gayle October 18, 2013 at 14:40 #

      I agree. I think Dita has the same problem Minka had with this dress.

      • julyol1972 October 18, 2013 at 17:16 #

        I think the color and Minka, by association looked totally washed out, whilst Dita has the confidence and the coloring to make the dress work.

        For me, both their bodies look great – not too curvy at all!

    I remembered this dress from the fact that I really disliked it. I amazed it got worn twice. I usually like, love, slightly Gothic looks. There’s just something about it – it reminds me of the way those shiny leggings from the 80′s wrap around the knees and give them an awful, satiny bulbous glow. It doesn’t help that the sheen of lace over the maroon gives it the illusion of a duo chrome.

    I love the colour on her but I think she is too curvy for this look too :( I would like to see someone doing justice to this dress cause it’s so stylish!

  11. Daisy October 18, 2013 at 15:47 #

    Truly a lovely dress! Better suited on brunette and more statuesque figure. I prefer n model however. Very lovely !!

    +1 Divine H2T!

    This gown looks much better on her than on Minka. It suits her style. I also like the styling.

    Muuuuch better on Dita. Minka had kind of ruined it for me. So, I’m glad she’s doing it justice, as it’s such a pretty gown.

  15. Dhppy October 21, 2013 at 22:24 #

    I just don’t like the gown. I don’t think it works on Kelly, von Teese, or the model. I think there are too many competing details from the waist up.

  16. EmmaWoodhosue October 22, 2013 at 22:00 #

    It was hideous on Minka and it is hideous on Dita. The gown is quite heinous, imo.
