I considered renaming this the Daily Brooch for today, because that's what I'm getting out of this picture: MUST. HAVE. GIANT. BROOCH.
A couple days ago, Dita Von Teese tweeted "Wardrobe dept at @WendyWilliams came at me with the intention of censoring my cleavage w/scraps of lace... #STEPAWAYfromtheRolandMouret." Ha! I tried to imagine what Mouret dress would be so provacative, and then these pictures were released. Sure, it's pretty low-cut but she is, you know, a burlesque dancer. I would think you might expect some raciness from that sort of guest.
In any case, I think she looks absolutely amazing in these pictures. I love the sort of poppy red color of the dress; it's a little more interesting than a true red. And the brooch. I want that damn brooch!
I'm liking OOP McCall's 5269 pattern as a similar look (with a TV appropriate neckline, too!). It's similar to Vogue 8280, but with fewer fussy details.
Anyone made this pattern?
