Who Wore Alexis Mabille Couture Better…Dita von Teese or Lea Seydoux?

Who Wore Alexis Mabille Couture Better Dita von Teese or Lea Seydoux

Dita von Tesse wore this elegant black Alexis Mabille Couture tuxedo gown while attending the ‘Global Gift Gala’ back in May 2013.

A litte over two years later, Lea Seydoux wore the same dress in white which saw her take a rare Miu Miu/Prada pause during her promo tour for ‘Spectre’.

As much as I love Dita, everything about the look is expected, which is quite the opposite when it comes to Lea, so she wins for me.

Lea Seydoux In Alexis Mabille Couture – ‘Spectre’ Copenhagen Premiere

I have received several messages asking me why I haven’t posted Lea Seydoux’s red carpet look from the Copenhagen premiere.

The simple answer is: because the photos haven’t appeared on Getty, which is the picture agency I licence (and purchase) images from.

I would’ve preferred to have waited for a better image to appear on one of the agencies I use, but in order to move things forward here is a snap taken by Lea’s sister and stylist Camille Seydoux, prior to the actress stepping on the red carpet.

The actress wore a sleek tuxedo gown designed by Alexis Mabille, which hails from the French designers Spring 2013 Couture collection, but I’m assuming the designer made this one especially for Lea’s big promo tour.

I love this ultra feminine take on androgynous tailoring with the satin lapels amping up the glamorous element, to which she added red pumps for an extra touch of spice.

You may remember that Dita von Teese (a huge fan of Alexis Mabille’s designs) wore the black runway version back in 2013.

Lea Seydoux In Miu Miu – ‘Spectre’ Mexico City Premiere

Lea Seydoux In Miu Miu - ‘Spectre’ Mexico City Premiere 2

Following the photocall, Lea Seydoux was back on the red carpet of the ‘Spectre’ premiere held at Auditorio Nacional on Monday (November 2) in Mexico City, where she joined her co-star Naomie Harris.

The French actress and Miu Miu have been on fire this promo tour, so it was quite apt that this look be flame-red.

We’ve had sophistication, and elegance from Lea, so it was about time she brought some drama.

I particularly love the double high splits at the skirt which enhanced the floaty movement.

Miu Miu silver glitter sandals and a red pout completed her look.

Lea Seydoux In Miu Miu – ‘Spectre’ Mexico City Photocall

Lea Seydoux In Miu Miu S16 - ‘Spectre’ Mexico City Photocall

Lea Seydoux joined Monica Bellucci for the Mexico City photocall for ‘Spectre’ on Sunday (November 1).

The French actress was looking ever so elegant once again in Miu Miu, selecting a Resort 2016 long-sleeve dress which reprises the swallow print that we first saw in Miu Miu’s Spring 2010 collection.

Lea knows exactly what works for her: slim-cut silhouettes and simple accessories and this look is a perfect testament to that fact.

Even with the bold swallow print, you can’t really focus on much else but that gorgeous face.

Lea Seydoux In Miu Miu – ‘Spectre’ Paris Premiere

Lea Seydoux In Miu Miu - ‘Spectre’ Paris Premiere

Following Amsterdam, Lea Seydoux was back on the red carpet for the ‘Spectre’ premiere held at Le Grand Rex on Thursday (October 29) in Paris, France.

Opting for Miu Miu once again, the actress selected a pale-pink gown embellished with gold and orange Swarovski crystal embroideries, which she styled with nude satin sandals with jeweled heels also by Miu Miu.

The gown couldn’t be more perfect for a big budget premiere; elegant and sophisticated – with her innate sexy appeal giving this look an extra 50%.

During a frantic promo tour like this – where a day doesn’t go pass without a premiere – we would be greedy to expect 100% perfection all the time, but like Naomie, Lea has been Miss Consistent during this promo tour.

The winner will be added to the BDOTW poll.
