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.

Dita Von Teese In Gucci – Raven Music and Arts Club Opening Press Conference

Dita Von Teese In Gucci - Raven Music and Arts Club Opening Press Conference

Dita Von Teese attended a press conference at the W Hotel, Mexico City for the opening of the Raven Music and Arts Club.

Dressed in all black with a few touches of red via her lips and the soles of her Louboutin pumps, the burlesque star wore a Gucci Fall 2013 jumpsuit.

It’s not often we see Dita take a stride outside her favoured retro-dress box, so this is a rare and refreshing treat – even if she did stick to her favoured colour black.

The sexy jumpsuit features fern-patterned lace sleeves and a regular front panel which is more tasteful than a similar panel we saw on Heidi Klum yesterday.

Classic, signature retro waves completed her look.

Are you delighted to see Dita do something new, or with this styling does it still feel like same-old, same-old Dita to you?

Dita Von Teese attended the 2013 North American Hairstyling Awards at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Nevada on Sunday.

The burlesque star wore a Jenny Packham Fall 2013 black-and-white spot-print cap-sleeved dress with a twisted detail at the waist and a central slit.

Typical Dita styling – with Louboutin peep-toes and a ball-shaped chain-accented bag with just enough room to pack her favourite red lipstick and maybe a compact mirror – completed her look.

Dita Von Teese In Maria Lucia Hohan - 2013 Fragrance Foundation Awards

Dita Von Teese attended the 2013 Fragrance Foundation Awards at Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center in New York City.

The burlesque star opted not to wear a black frock; instead she donned a champagne-coloured Maria Lucia Hohan ‘Madison’ silk-tulle gown featuring a draped corset, gold trimmings and a signature illusion panel at the back.

Gold accessories and Dita’s signature bold red lips and retro ‘do completed her sexy look.

Do you find this refreshing or is Dita washed out?

Dita von Teese In Ulyana Sergeenko Couture – amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala

Dita von Teese In Ulyana Sergeenko Couture - amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala

After a flirtation with two back-to-back red looks, it was back to black for Dita von Teese who attended the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala held at Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Cap d’Antibes, France on Thursday evening.

The burlesque star wore a black velvet Ulyana Sergeenko Couture gown.

This gown, with a nipped in waist and voluminous skirt, has a vintage vibe which no doubt instantly spoke to Dita; however, I wish the gown was sleeveless.

Pearl accented Chopard earrings and black satin-peep-toes completed her look.
