DITA VON TEESE IN VIVIENNE WESTWOOD VINTAGE ROCOCO DRESS. CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN MARIE ANTOINETTE SHOES. WESTWOOD PUNK BALLROOM GOWNS.
My jaw dropped when I saw these photos of Dita von Teese signing her new Striptease book in Las Vegas. That gorgeous dress — a vintage Vivienne Westwood! And the Marie Antoinette shoes by Christian Louboutin! (Images from My Vegas Scene.)
Impressive. Have you ever seen her burlesque show live? I’ve heard it’s incredible.
Dita also wore a violet Vivienne Westwood gown at her marriage ceremony. (All the way back in 2007, I did a blog post about Dita von Teese and Marilyn Manson’s wedding reception.)
I love the whimsical animal print on the left. It’s obvious why many Japanese Lolitas are fond of Ms. Westwood’s designs.
Floor-sweeping Rococo ballgowns and cute pierrot bell skirts… which is your favorite?
Do you own anything by the Grandmother of Punk? Or something inspired by her work, such as rocking horse shoes?
