Welcome back Best Dressed followers! To ease you into this weekend’s selection of sartorial stunners, we present the delectable Dita Von Teese. And what a ray of sunshine she is! Our favourite femme fatale was sauntering around Vienna for the amfAR Gala and never one to do things by halves, she wrapped her killer curves up in this lemon gown from Elie Saab's S/S '08 Couture collection - complete with an avalanche of sumptuous silk and clinched by a sparkling crystal embellishment. Have you ever seen her looking so magnificent? We sure haven't. All hail Queen DVT!
Over at the Veuve Clicquot Gold Cup Final in West Sussex, the style was a little more casual-cool, as you’d expect from a bunch of Brits watching polo in the park. We’re very proud to see Karen Gillan, aka Doctor Who’s saucy assistant, taking yet another style risk in this blue shirt dress with gorgeously poofy sleeves, polished off by a pair of of-the-moment clogs – and is that the Doctor’s briefcase you’ve nabbed? All in all, this is the ideal way to bring an immense amount of character to the afternoon event and so it’s official: the wee Highland lass has arrived on Planet Fashion. Woot! Meanwhile, Little Boots continued the quirkiness with her embroidered jumpsuit and like a glass of lemonade on a sunny day, she looked refreshingly sweet. The muted palette keeps the look sophisticated and subtle, plus that oversized locket adds to the vintage vibe. How wonderfully whimsical!
Ah yes, you can count on the oldies-but-goodies for a lesson in city chic and today we turn our attentions to Gwen Stefani. She caught our eye with this too-cool-for-school ensemble comprising of a floaty crop top and sleek ankle grazers while cruising the streets of LA. But of course, it’s all about the accessorising, because Gwen has masterfully dressed up the outfit’s simplicity with a few bright splashes of colour, from her bright blue bra to those bold red lips and nails that tie in perfectly with her strappy sandals. Just add an enormous tote, some funky sunnies and that signature peroxide quiff for off-duty excellence. Speaking of which, we’re loving Alessandra Ambrosio’s playsuit for its functionality as well as its fashion fabulousness. We just wish we could throw it on with such nonchalance and look this darn cool... Hmph.
