We all know velvet is huge this season, and probably for the coming year, and looks like Hollywood has jumped on the bandwagon with a vengeance.
Dita Von Teese and Uma Thurman were both spotted wearing midnight blue velvet dress a few days apart from each other. Such a coincidence, non?
Uma Thurman wears a smooth velvet gown from Atelier Versace to the UNICEF Snowflake Ball in NYC yesterday. Her long-sleeved gown plunging neckline and some interesting cross-over detail at the waist. She really let her ladies out for the occasion, didn’t she? Simple hair and makeup complete the look. To me Uma has the grace and body to pull off pretty much anything, but this look is a bit aging. I think better hair – perhaps some retro waves – would have worked really well.
Dita Von Teese worked the room at the launch of her lingerie line for Debenhams in London. She wears a special piece from the Dita Von Teese collection paired with Louboutins. Dita also gives her ladies a day out – but that isn’t really a surprise. Her knee-length dress also has long sleeves and a nipped in waist. Lace inserts add a bit of raciness. Naturally. Dita’s signature retro hair, red lips and nails finish off the look.
Who wins this for you?
