Alexis Mabille gown






Fashiongasm!!! Dita wore the dress on the right at Versailles for Paris Fashion Week. And I must say- only the incomparable Dita could pull off such an elaborate gown. I absolutely adore her sense of fashion because she brings such elegance to whatever pieces she wears. And who else could pull off pale skin and throbbing red lips?
I hope she wears that red silk piece on the left, a Zac Posen no less, to a premier. A deep purple or lavender would contrast so well with the red carpet and the space-age flashy numbers we've seen in the past year (worn by Jennifer Lopez as seen here http://media.photobucket.com/image/jennifer%20lopez%202010/DyandraBrown/JenniferLopez2010GrammyAwardsTheNin.jpg). There's nothing wrong with modern silhouettes but I'm personally kind of a purist. I adore the 1940s Hollywood glam look that we've gotten to see on Dita and other stars like Evan Rachel Wood in TrueBlood and Gugu Mbatha-Raw's Reem Acra dress at the BAFTA Gala. The forties were a really interesting time in fashion, a time to which designers like Lagerfeld and Versace frequently allude because the silhouettes so emphasized the female shape and its power.
So thank you Dita for bringing your Midas touch wherever you go!
