Style Focus – Dita’s Dresses
We could write a whole blog about Dita Von Teese’s dresses. But we just don’t have the time or space. What we can do is pick out some of our favourite looks from the burlesque queen – at awards ceremonies, book signings, nights out, and doing the grocery shop – Dita style of course!
We at BB HQ took a deep intake of breath when we saw Dita in this simply stunning purple Jean Paul Gaultier at Cannes 2008 – this beautiful floor length gown that has a nod to the 1930s.
And at the Elie Saab Haute Couture 2010 Spring Summer show last month, Dita’s electric blue dress contrasted brilliantly with her jet black hair. “Elie Saab’s show was very romantic…. Beautiful beading, as always. He did two of the costumes I wear in the Crazy Horse Paris dvd,” Dita tweeted after the event.
Moschino have long been a favourite design house of Dita’s, and we love, love, love the red coat from the Italian designers she was snapped wearing in the supermarket of all places.
“Moschino has always been one of my favourite labels, I love the sense of humour infused into Moschino’s designs and the way that it transcends fads and is always chic,” she has said. “All of my Moschino pieces are treasured, and not one piece ever goes out of style.”
This lady does not do ‘dress-down’, and snapped on a Paris street last year, she still manages to look utterly immaculate and every inch the bombshell in her 1950s-style dogtooth check dress.
At LAX airport, Dita is often snapped in her ‘travel wear’ – usually a Rachel Pally dress, perfect hair and make-up and obligatory sunglasses. We must try harder is the new motto at BB HQ.
“Rachel Pally’s soft dresses are the perfect way to be both chic and utterly comfortable at the same time. Her dresses are my travel uniform! I have an entire section of my closet just for her dresses,” says Dita
Dita has now turned her hand to design – but it’s not a dress she’s come up with – it’s an eyemask for, who else, but Moschino. Dita is not just jumping on the celebrity ‘attach your name to anything’ bandwagon, though. No, our modern-day bombshell is doing this for charity.
Profits from the design go to amfAR, a leading non-profit organisation dedicated to the helping AIDS research, prevention and treatment – a cause she proudly supports.
Dita’s eye mask – a pink silk-satin piece, layered with spotted lace, trompe l’oeil eyelash detail and ‘Dita for Moschino’ embellishment in rhinestones – comes in a cute matching case and is available at www.moschino.com, for £80.
That’s Dita – stylish around the clock!
