I don’t know why but I already thought that Vivienne Westwood had stores in America, apparently not, so this week the Dame herself opened her first LA flagship store and showroom with a glamorous, starstudded evening. Which of course means gorgeous celebrities draped in the amazing wares of Vivienne Westwood.
Above with Vivienne Westwood is the face of her Palladium jewellery line Christina Hendricks; wearing a Vivienne Westwood couture pleated corset in black silk cotton, teamed with skinny trouser and fierce red lippy. But this pic is all about Viv herself, this knockout white floor-skimming gown with intricate cut-out detailing is exquisite.
Easily my best dressed of the night had to be the ever-glamorous Dita Von Teese, after see her this week in CSI as a murderer, it was nice to see her strutting her stuff on the red carpet. I love this black taffeta gown that she is wearing from the spring/summer 2011 Vivienne Westwood Gold label collection, it looks amazing teamed with a striking black fascinator and fish net gloves, oh and course her signature red lippy.
Who: Zoe Saldana
Wearing: A silver draped Vivienne Westwood Gold Label dress, paired with Vivienne Westwood red floral heels
Verdict: Wow, this dress really does show off her model proportions to the max, I love the contrast of the silver dress with the red floral heels. This look from head-to-toe is sexy!!!
Who: Actress Anna Kendrick
Wearing: A gold print dress from the Vivienne Westwood Gold Label autumn/winter 2011 collection, teamed with black round toe Miu Miu heels
Verdict: The thing I love about Vivienne Westwood’s designs has to be the exquiste sihouettes, and this dress looks amazing on Anna. I am completely drawn to the draping detailing on the neckline and the gorgeous autumn print
Who: Malin Akerman
Wearing: A black printed dress from the Vivienne Westwood Anglomania pre-fall 2011 collection, teamed with silver peep-toe heels and an oversized black clutch
Verdict: This dress is sexy and so perfect for Malin. I really do like her presence on the red carpet, she has an attitude that I think a lot of actress are lacking, as always gorgeous and stunning.
Who: Kristin Davis
Wearing: A blue taffeta corset dress from the Vivienne Westwood Gold Label autumn/winter 2011 collection, paired with black patent peep-toe platforms and a black clutch
Verdict: Nice to see someone going for a spot of colour. I love this corseted dress on Kristin, it nips in at her waist and adds drama with the draping, great choice.
Who: Heidi Klum
Wearing: A black sequinned dress from the Vivienne Westwood Gold Label autumn/winter 2011 collection
Verdict: I love that it sparkles, it looks amazing on her, but it just doesn’t wow me like I think it should.
Sadly, to have a best dressed there has to be a worst dressed of the night, and that for me has to be Mischa Barton in this silver dress from the Vivienne Westwood Anglomania pre-fall 2011 collection. Out of all the celebs and dresses that were on offer, this was by far the worst, I just feel that everything from the colour to the draping, to her hair and the ribbon belt, nothing I am afraid works for me.
