Who Wore Alexis Mabille Better? Keira Knightley or Dita von Teese

Keira Knightley struck familiar pose pout on the red carpet at the premiere of her movie, The Duchess, in London last September.

She showed off her slender frame, whilst wearing a blue Alexis Mabille Fall 2008 Couture dress, who’s dotted detail on the blue tulle, was slightly darker from the runway version.

Side sweeping bangs, a chunky ring, and patent Moschino heels completed the look.

Dita von Teese wore the same couture dress to the Dsquared² cocktail reception celebrating their store opening in Cannes this week.

Despite how beautiful the dress looks against her porcelain skin, and how the style is perfect on her sexy silhouette, the whimsical feel of the dress suits Keira better.

2009 Cannes Film Festival – “Inglourious Basterds” Premiere

I secretly knew she wouldn’t let me down.

Tthats 3 years in a row she’s wowed at Cannes.

Angelina Jolie walked the red carpet in not only colour, but this season colour – nude.

Her chiffon one-sleeved Versace Fall 2008 gown is so beautiful, delicate and feminine yet she’s still exudes her usual sex appeal.

Those famous full lips are red divine, and her look is complete with champagne heels.

This is definitely one of her best looks to date.

Diane Kruger was equally radiant, if not more so than Angelina.

The stunning actress walked the red carpet in a custom made ivory silk chiffon Marchesa gown with flutter sleeves.

I love the cowl back dress with silver floral embroidered detail.

The side swept bun, and simple diamonds quietly scream elegance.

Best Dressed of The Week just became even harder.

Elsa Pataky swept the red carpet with her black Elie Saab Spring 2009 Couture strapless gown.

Elsa likes to be a sex kitten on the red carpet, but with a few diamonds here and there and her hair pulled back she looks very demure.

I would’ve loved to have seen her in another colour gown, as she wore black to the Chopard “Cascade” perfume launch.

Asia Argento plays the femme fatale wearing a bold Armani Prive Spring 2009 strapless gown with a blood red fringed skirt.

She paired her devilish look with matching shoes, and bright red lipstick for an eye-catching pout.

I’m surprised to say that I kinda like Sharon Stone in this Balmain Fall 2009 gown.

It shows off her body – which looks amazing – and she’s not wearing some tacky animal print which she’s usually so fond of.

For once Sharon, I don’t hate.

I’m happy to see Dita von Teese wearing something from the Christian Dior Spring 2009 Couture collection, but I’m disappointed she didn’t pick one of the more colourful risky pieces.

I hope those gowns aren’t destined to only be editorial gowns.

Dita wore her one-shouldered dress with a red clutch to match her perfect pout.

Cute, but safe for Dita.

Emma de Caunes also opted for a black Elie Saab dress, but her embellished cocktail dress was from the Fall 2009 collection.

Judge Shu Qi looked angelic wearing a white Roberto Cavalli Spring 2009 gown, which had a gold chain detail embellishing the trim of the bodice.

German actress Jana Pallaske wore an eventful Paule Ka Spring 2009 strapless dress on the red carpet with bandage straps, black contrasting bodice, and feathered hem.

There’s a lot going on, but it’s fun and fruity.

French actress Frédérique Bel also opted for a Paule Ka Spring 2009 creation.

Hers was less cutesy, and more risqué with the cut-out panel showing off her toned abs.

Natasha Poly’s Roberto Cavalli Spring 2009 strapless black and grey gown has plenty of frou frou in the skirt with the ruffles and tulle layers.

In this supermodel face-off Natasha’s soft make-up and sultry smile wins me over.

Robin Wright Penn opts for her second Narciso Rodriguez gown of Cannes Film Festival.

This time it’s refreshing white crepe gown, with sleek lines to give her a beautiful silhouette.

Michelle Yeoh opted for a beige strapless Roberto Cavalli gown with stunning gold accessories to compliment the gold embroidered details on her bodice.

I’ve never been a fan of Joss Stone’s style.

She over did the hippy maxi look, but here she opts for a yellow haltered dress which does nothing for her.

Her yellow dress was paired with green heels, with a pink tip. !?!?!?

2009 Cannes Film Festival – "Dsquared² Cocktail Reception"

Dita von Teese looked as cute as a button wearing a blue Alexis Mabille Fall 2008 Couture strapless knee-length dress.

I love the lacy frilled neckline and hem, but I also loved this on Keira Knightley, when she first wore it last year.

Paris Hilton would have turned heads in a long white toga style Dsquared² Spring 2009 dress, with a huge split up the side.

She continued her love for head bands, wearing a gold one to match her heels and clutch.

The runway strappy heels looked much better with the dress.

Peaches Geldof dressed to impress, wearing a pink dress with a long purple blazer.

She did try for a sophisticated look, but those tattoos on her legs really turn me off.

Social Events Of The Week

54th Annual Village Voice Obie Awards, New York

For some reason Anne Hathaway wearing this Proenza Schouler Pre-Fall 2009 dress with cut-out shoulders, fails to hit the spot for me.

I think I’ve been spoilt by all the wonderful gowns at Cannes Film Festival to really appreciate it.

Cosmopolitan Best Fragrance Of The Year Award, Madrid

Singer Marta Sanchez showed off her legs, wearing a Gucci Sprint 2009 printed silk flute mini dress, with a khaki leather sash and suede Gucci Iman t-strap sandals.

VIP Room/Palm Beach, Cannes

Dita von Teese opted for a strapless Dolce & Gabbana barqoue dress with a beige, gold and rose floral fabric.

Her fuchsia pink heels were the perfect finishing touch, but that jeweled navy belt feels a bit heavy.

2009 FOX UpFront – After Party, New York

Eliza Dushku shows off her edgier side wearing a moss coloured Brian Reyes top, with a black diagonal skirt by the same designer.

A black cropped leather jacket, and snake-print heels complete the look.

Joely Fisher wore a red Gustavo Cadile chiffon gown, which was elegantly stylish for this occasion.

A Concert For Charity Featuring Band From TV, Miami

Teri Hatcher showed off her wild side, with a daring multi-coloured printed Roberto Cavalli maxi dress.

H&M and Designers Against AIDS (DAA) for the Fashion Against AIDS party, Paris

Dita von Teese wore a corseted LBD, which very much reminds me of Victoria Beckham’s Bidart tailored dress, which was an instant hit when it went on sale at Net-A-Porter.com.

Eurovision Song Contest Moscow 2009 Press Conference & Semi Finals


For one night only Dita von Teese will be German.

The Eurovision Song Contest is this Saturday, and Dita has teaming up with the German entrant, therefore guaranteeing a HUGE audience for the show, and almost guaranteeing a win for the German’s.

The sexy burlesque star will appear on stage alongside Alex Christensen and Oscar Loya to play the part of Miss Kiss Kiss Bang in their performance.

She’ll be wearing a teeny tiny waist reducing corset, with decorative silver nipple covers, and an Elie Saab sequined jacket, but at today’s press conference for the show, the star was fully clothed.

She was wearing a Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2009 Couture skirt suit, consisting of a black pencil skirt, and an off-the-shoulder lace jacket, with a white detail though-out, which gives the jacket it’s structure.

Louboutin’s heels and black bag complete the look.

Liebe Dita, Liebe.

Russian model Natalia Vodianova, hosted of the semi-finals of the Eurovision Song Contest, as the show takes place in her native country.

She was papped looking heavenly wearing a lilac Givenchy Spring 2009 Couture gown.

The gown has a feathered neckline, which is also adorned with chains.

I haven’t watch the Eurovision in about 10 years, but these two woman will tempt me to watch for the fashion alone.
