Best Dressed Of The Week – Bianca Balti In Fendi & Dita von Teese In Jenny Packham


Bianca Balti, who creatively layered a Fendi two-tone dress with a Fendi printed skirt, won your votes for best dressed this week.

The Italian supermodel’s look was chic, colourful and reminded us that it is summer.

Once Dita von Teese donned her stunning Jenny Packham gown to host the Cointreau event, there was only one winner for me.

I love how she pulled off this gorgeous look with her personal retro stamp.

Dita von Teese In Jenny Packham – Dita Von Teese and Cointreau Launch Cointreau Poolside Soirees Event

Dita von Teese continued to sparkle in her role as ambassador for Cointreau by hosting a poolside soiree at the Beverly Hill Hotel in California yesterday.

The princess of darkness embraced the gloriously beautiful weather by donning a Jenny Packham Spring 2012 gown.

The long lace gown with cascading colourful beaded flowers may be considered a tad OTT for a pool party, but this is the always impeccably dressed Dita we are talking about here.

With palm trees in the backdrop and a glass of Cointreau in her hand, Dita completed her look with her signature retro styling.

Dita von Teese In Emilio Pucci – Berluti Private Dinner

Dita von Teese attended the Berluti Menswear Spring/Summer 2013 show during Menswear Paris Fashion Week at the Jardin du Palais Royal in Paris, France, on Friday.

Upping her shoe game from her last red-carpet outing, Dita wore an Emilio Pucci Fall 2012 dress with Christian Louboutin ‘T-Piga’ pumps.

Her royal-blue fully beaded chiffon dress accented with a black velvet ribbon tied isn’t your typical Dita red carpet. This will be refreshing for those of you tired of her signature fitted silhouette.

Dita von Teese In Marc Jacobs – amfAR Inspiration Night Paris

Dita von Teese also attended the amfAR Inspiration Night Paris at Maxim’s in Paris, France, yesterday evening.

The burlesque star wore a very familiar look from the Marc Jacobs Fall 2012 collection.

Whilst we haven’t seen this particular style of dress before, we have seen this paisley metallic print on Elizabeth Banks and Rose McGowan.

I hope celebs will give us some range and wear other pieces from this collection.

Trademark retro Dita styling, with Bulgari jewels and uncharacteristic simple black pumps completed her look.

Dita Von Teese In Jonathan Saunders – Jonathan Saunders Resort 2013 Celebration Dinner

Dita Von Teese stopped by the Jonathan Saunders Resort 2013 Celebration Dinner, held at the Chateau Marmont in LA on Wednesday evening.

The burlesque beauty showed off her gorgeous figure wearing a black mesh Jonathan Saunders Spring 2012 dress with floral embroidery.

A nude silk lining makes the dress much more user-friendly than the sheer version seen on the runway.

Celebrities including Marisa Tomei, stylist Liz Goldwin and a Prada clan Brad Goreski joined Dita to celebrate the designer’s Resort 2013 collection.

The 1970’s inspired collection is full of bright vibrant primary colours: sunshine yellow, cherry red, Kelly green, teal blue and a bubblegum pink.

Relying heavily on tailored separates, the entire lookbook can be seen as something of a ‘mix and match’ collection.

Standout pieces include a bold, yellow maxi skirt, a modern ivy print suit-skirt and funky knit dresses.

You can buy Dita’s Jonathan Saunders dress from Net-A-Porter.com.

Dita von Teese In Jean Paul Gaultier Couture – 2012 Duftstars Awards

Dita von Teese made sure all eyes were on her when she hit the red carpet on Friday evening to attend the 2012 Duftstars Awards at Tempodrom in Berlin, Germany.

The burlesque star has never been afraid of baring some skin, so this Jean Paul Gaultier Fall 2002 Couture gown should come as no surprise to anyone.

Her skin-baring dark-brown peek-a-boo gown with knots and twisted details was paired with long black leather opera gloves and styled with her signature retro waves and a dark red lip colour.

Usually I’m a fan of whatever Dita wears, but I don’t like this colour on her.

Had this dress been in her favoured black, I think it would’ve worked better for me, but to be honest I’m not that crazy about the gown to begin with.
