Dita Von Teese reworks the velvet LBD
Oh how we love Dita Von Teese at Littleblackdress.co.uk. Her dedication to vintage 1940s and 1950s dressing has made her a style icon along with her milky white skin and obligatory red pout. But it's her latest dress that has got us talking today.A classic but on-trend take on the little black dress for Autumn, her velvet pencil dress showed off her hourglass figure to perfection. Simple patent heels and superstar cats eye sunglasses amp up the glamour as does her cheeky flash of a lace bra. She is a burlesque artist after all! While you don't have to be as daring as Ms. Von Teese, you can take inspiration from her outfit for perfect new season dressing. Although she wore this to a business meeting, a dress like this works best for night time events and dinner parties. Velvet is a great Autumn/Winter update for the LBD and this one from Aftershock is perfect for nailing the vampy trend. Flattering and sexy just like Dita's, you couldn't find a more perfect party dress. If you want to try a more fitted, 1940s style like Dita, this vintage wiggle dress from The Pretty Dress Company will hug your curves in all the right places while leaving you comfortable and glamourous. Pair with these simple pointed shoes from Bourne and this beautiful bangle from Fiorelli to complete your look.
