For our ‘look of the week’ we are drawn to the beautifully feminine and exquisite style of American Burlesque model Dita Von Teese as she attended The Fragrance Foundation Awards in New York on the 12 June 2013.
We love the glamourous silk mousseline gown by Maria Lucia Hohan Dita wore on the red carpet, the vertically draped corset perfectly defines her enviously tiny waist whilst the transparent tulle insertions move across the back giving a ‘bare back’ effect and characterizes her alluring personality. Beautiful gold leather trimmings circle the waist and co-ord with her stunning Yves Saint Laurent shoes and Swarovski purse – a classic look that emulates the success of her career from model to fashion designer. You can read our extended interview about her Von Follies lingerie launch here.
English horseracing event Ascot is approaching so be sure to add a tulle gown into your wardrobe for the July event, as semi-sheer Hollywood glam influences are the styles to bask in this summer. Merchandisers should stock statement jewellery next to classic full length pieces to enforce a red carpet ensemble.
