2017 Beijing International Film Festival

The opening ceremony of the 2017 Beijing International Film Festival in China on Sunday (April 16) brought with it a number of elaborate looks to usher in the festivities.

Liu Yifei 刘茜美子 : It’s hard not to be fully enchanted by this Zuhair Murad Spring 2017 Couture lavender-purple confection, what with its extravagantly voluminous tulle skirt and cascades of glittering embellishment. I love how the exploded peplum folds added a modern edge to thi fairy-tale princess moment.

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.

Katy Perry In Yousef Al-Jasmi & Alexis Mabille Haute Couture – David Lynch Foundation Benefit Concert

Katy Perry In Yousef Al-Jasmi & Alexis Mabille F15 Haute Couture - David Lynch Foundation Benefit Concert

Katy Perry took to the red carpet before her performance at the David Lynch Foundation Benefit Concert on Wednesday (November 4) in New York City.

Red Carpet: When I looked at Katy Perry in this Yousef Al-Jasmi Spring 2016 jumpsuit, I asked myself, “what the hell happened?” The 70s inspired jumpsuit was sexy on the runway with its slinky silhouette and draped sleeves, but on Katy it’s a hot, unflattering mess from the chest down. My eyes fall straight to her nether regions – a place they don’t want to be – and the studded belt is redundant here. No positives can be draw from this look.

Performance: Things improved 1000% for her performance which saw her don an Alexis Mabille Fall 2015 Couture pale pink gown with a oversized satin bow. Some might deem this detail overkill, but I like the dramatic impact it gives to her performance.

Dita Von Teese In Alexis Mabille Couture – Sidaction Gala Dinner 2015

Dita Von Teese In Alexis Mabille Couture - Sidaction Gala Dinner 2015

Dita Von Teese attended the Sidaction Gala Dinner 2015 held at the Pavillon d’Armenonville on Thursday (January 29) in Paris, France.

The burlesque star blew me away wearing the first look from the Spring 2015 Couture collection, donning a gown created by Alexis Mabille.

J’adore everything about this look. First, it was quite clearly made for Dita – the corseted satin bodice is the biggest indicator of that fact.

The colour is hypnotic and radiant against her milky complexion, plus I love the way this gown alludes to an undone moment, once again perfect for Dita, who performs in a state of undress.

Matching her feather-accented clutch to her dress, the look was styled, as per, with retro waves and a red pout.
