Zac Posen Pre-Fall 2014 Celebratory Dinner

Zac Posen Pre-Fall 2014 Celebratory Dinner

Zac Posen and MAC Cosmetics’ John Demsey hosted a dinner to celebrate the designer’s Pre-Fall 2014 collection at Mr Chow on Wednesday evening (December 11) in New York City, inviting celebs who of course wore his stunning gowns.

Dita von Teese: On this occasion I can find no fault with Dita’s look. I Iove that she opted for a deeper-red lip to complement the Bordeaux hue of her satin mermaid gown. The Van Cleef & Arpels necklace may be deemed too OTT, but that along with the fur shrug adds an even more glamorous flourish to her celebratory dinner-party look.

Uma Thurman: The actress also opted for a gown, selecting a pale-blue flutter-sleeve frock with a draped back and gathered waist, which she styled with silver embellished heels which dazzled as brightly as her chandelier earrings.

Both look sexy and glamorous, but Dita totally wowed me with her look.

Dita Von Teese In Carolina Herrera – Van Cleef & Arpels Celebrates The Redesigned New York 5th Avenue Flagship Maison

Dita Von Teese In Carolina Herrera - Van Cleef & Arpels Celebrates The Redesigned New York 5th Avenue Flagship Maison

Dita Von Teese joined Blake Lively for the unveiling of Van Cleef & Arpels’ redesigned New York 5th Avenue flagship maison at Van Cleef & Arpels on Tuesday (December 10) in New York City.

The burlesque star has been having a Carolina Herrera moment ever since she attended the designer’s Spring 2014 show during New York Fashion Week.

On this occasion she wore a blue-dotted floral-print silk gown with a plunging neckline and bow detail which was originally sent down the runway in a vibrant ruby colour; you may remember the ruby gown was worn by Sarah Paulson at the Emmy Awards.

Dita was of course dripping in Van Cleef & Arpels jewels with her signature red lips and retro ‘do firmly in check.

This look would’ve been perfect had the skirt been taken up an inch.

Dita Von Teese In Aurelio Costarella – Melbourne Cup Day

Dita Von Teese In Aurelio Costarella - Melbourne Cup Day

Dita von Teese joined Coco Rocha and Kate Waterhouse in Australia on Tuesday for Melbourne Cup Day.

The burlesque star is no stranger to a dramatic fashion statement, and this orchid-adorned headpiece from her friend, master UK milliner Philip Treacy, certainly gave her a leg up on the head-turning front.

To keep on with the summery aesthetic, Dita wore a crisp, form-fitted white jacket (also detailed with orchids at the shoulder) and a knee-length pencil skirt set, both by Australian designer Aurelio Costarella. Her matching purple orchid-hued lace corset peeked through, offering the perfect colour complement to the outfit’s floral theme.

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.

Dita Von Teese was spotted lunching at Cecconi’s Restaurant in West Hollywood, California yesterday afternoon.

Reaching for the non-black side of her closet, the burlesque model wore a Zac Posen Spring 2013 frock.

Her fitted floral-print dress with sheer ruffle-detail flutter sleeves, a plunging V-neck and a ruffled skirt was styled with a pair of maroon patent-leather wedges, a matching leather clutch and sexy cat-eye Tom Ford shades.

I love the effortlessness and colour coordination of this look and, of course, I love the fact that it’s a pretty, flirty dress that is not in her favoured colour.

Dita von Teese In Carolina Herrera – Generation W Party and Vanity Fair’s ‘Celebration of the 2013 International Best Dressed List’

Dita von Teese In Carolina Herrera - Generation W Party and Vanity Fair’s ‘Celebration of the 2013 International Best Dressed List’

Dita von Teese joined Michelle Dockery at the Generation W Party and Vanity Fair’s ‘Celebration of the 2013 International Best Dressed List’ on Monday evening in New York City.

The burlesque star wore her second Carolina Herrera Fall 2013 look in a row, having fallen for the charms of the designer’s pieces while attending her Spring 2014 show this weekend.

On this occasion she wore a rose-quartz modern houndstooth-print silk gown with velvet trims.

I never pictured Dita in this gown, mostly because it’s not fully black, but she wears it well, with the colour complementing her fair skin.

As for the styling, well, same as always.

Front Row @ Carolina Herrera Spring 2014

Front Row @ Caroline Herrera Spring 2014

Carolina Herrera’s Spring 2014 runway saw a host of sophisticated stars taking their front-row seats for the Monday showing at The Theatre at Lincoln Center in New York City, where they all wore an eclectic mix of the designer’s offerings.

Michelle Dockery: The ‘Downton Abbey’ star was lovely in a sophisticated cerulean-toned separates, including a floral-printed, Peter Pan-collar blouse and a demure, flared skirt, from the Fall 2013 collection. Silver pumps and EF Collection earrings provided the shine to that electric blue shade. Karolina Kurkova strutted out the same print several months ago.

Christina Ricci: Also in a Fall 2013 ensemble, the actress wore a sheer devoré velvet dress that featured an exploded dahlia pattern, although I wasn’t crazy about the way the lining translated in photos. Also channeling her inner metallic maven, she put on a pair of silver Jimmy Choo ‘Anouk’ pumps to complete the look.

Dita von Teese: Always showing her flair for the dramatic, the burlesque queen’s Fall 2013 ensemble featured a green-and-black blouson-sleeve top with a similar dahlia print and a super-wide-leg pair of too-shiny pants. A Christian Louboutin ‘Sweety Charity Brode Strass’ embroidered, chain-accented black evening clutch—and Dita’s forever red lip—finished the look, which translated as a bit heavy for the front row action.

Brittany Snow: Following Dita’s red-lipped lead, Brittany showed her style cards with a Pre-Fall 2013 dress, showered in mini hearts, spades, diamonds and clubs. She accessorized with an angular red clutch and strappy crimson sandals, along with dainty Dana Rebecca Designs earrings and rings by EF Collection.
