VENUS SPORTS CAN-CAN CORSET

Tennis ace, Venus Williams, was snapped sporting a can-can style corset yesterday at the French Open Tennis Tournament at Roland Garros in Paris. Both Venus and Serena Williams are known for their unique sense of dressing through their matches and this outfit is nothing new to the sports star. The red spaghetti straps and corset dress has a feel of the 1890’s, with the skirt ruffled at the bottom to make a certain ‘flounce’ when Venus moved.
The press seemed to love the outfit with the first 8 questions at the post match press conference being about the outfit. The star said: “The motif is really about sporty sexy, and kind of that whole attitude of bringing that to my game, I usually don’t wear red. This is kind of new for me.”
Venus said she plans to wear the dress for her next match as well. If it continues to bring victories, who knows … maybe she’ll get one in white for Wimbledon.

MET GALA 2010 – THE FROCKS AND THE FUN

Monday night saw the glitterati migrate to New York for the annual Metropolitan Costume Gala hosted by Vogue Editor, Anna Wintour and television star Oprah Winfrey. The night saw some of the most glamorous and stylish frocks to walk the red carpet and I’ve chosen some of my favourite gowns with of course the added bonus of the curve enhancing corset. First up see’s Twilight actress, Kristen Stewart in a figure hugging black Chanel dress, which I first mistook for Vivienne Westwood with the pointed neckline. I think this gown would have worked a little better if it was completely floor length, taking off the unnessesary netting.

Next up comes the stunning Jennifer Lopez, who by the way is over 40! Can you believe it? Jennifer looks radiant in this heavily embellished Zuhair Murad gown. I like to see Jen a little more glam and less ghetto.

Lastly we come to the curvasious Eva Mendes who looks fabulous in her Dolce and Gabbana floral dress, looking every bit the Spanish senorita. See how the fish tale, corset nipped in waist design of the dress highlights Eva’s fantastic figure? The black floral print works well with Eva’s latino skin colouring.

COACHELLA MUSIC FESTIVAL

Here are two of my favourite corset wearing ladies in deep conversation at Coachella Music festival. Katy Perry and Dita Von Teese have actually been out a number of time, oh how fun it would be to be involved in that party circuit! I’m loving Dita’s directional hat by Phillip Treacey and sun dress, a striking contrast against Katy’s super modern, colourful ensemble. I love Katy’s sunglasses, how cool are they. Earlier on in the festival Dita was snapped wearing some larger than life sailor trousers. Although her corset style bra top looks great these trousers are a definate no-no in the style stakes. Dita, you look like Santa at sea! Please find some skinny, indigo jeans to wear with that top and high light your curves instead of drowning them.

RIHANNA – QUEEN OF THE CORSET

Pop princess, Rihanna is known now more for her outrageous style than for her music. Not to say that she isn’t a credited artist, its just in recent years it has been her style that has kept her in papers and in with the fashion pack.

Designers are queuing to dress the singer, with favourites been Dolce and Gabbana and Jeremy Scott. If there were a queen of the corset then Rihanna would take that crown, whether that is stage outfits or walking through New York in a corset and ripped jeans.

Rihanna is one of the hottest artist of the moment and her style is something that can be easily replicated with the help of True corset. Why not try this Dita corset in Pink Duchess Satin teamed with distressed denim? Or even this Curvy Black Satin Over The Bust corset, worn with super high heels and uber trendy wet look leggings.

NICKELODEON AWARDS

Katy Perry stepped out in style at the Nickelodeon Kids Awards this weekend, dazzling in a corseted ra-ra dress covered in multi-coloured sequins. As usual her curves will out in full show, teaming her strictly come dancing style dress with some glitter wedges (which seemed slightly too big for the singer).
After rocking a metallic mini by The Blonds at the MTV VMAs as well as at the 2009 Brits, the singer returned to the design duo for yet another sparkly show-stopper from their AW10 collection. OTT rhinestones, glittering wedges, rainbow-coloured lurex – all to be expected on a Perry, and the corset works wonders at amplifying those voluptuous curves. Would we prefer it to be a little less, er, revealing? Well yeah (this is the Kids Choice Awards after all) but we can’t always get what we wish for, so let’s just be happy with what we have, which is pretty darn marvellous.

CHRISTINA AGUILERAS CORSET STYLE

How gorgeous does pop princess, Christina Aguilera look on her single cover, with a black PVC corseted playsuit, teamed with a metal waist nipping belt. This looks like a torchure device! Still, she looks great. I loved Christina when she went through her 50’s pin up phase but I suppose anything is an improvement on leather chaps and dreadlocks for her ‘Dirty’ video!

Christina Aguilera has released her latest “big news” — the lyrics to her single “Not Myself Tonight” off her upcoming album, Bionic! ALSO, the countdown time on ChristinaAguilera.com has started yet again. Will the song finally get released tomorrow?? Hopefully!!!

Christina is currently filming her acting debut for the film ‘Burlesque‘, so lets hope some of the style carries to run off on her as she has the pefect figure for it.

BACK IN FASHION

Basques and corsets are back in fashion again in 2010, it is not a secret, the trend is largely due to the huge popularity of celebrities like Rihanna and Lady GaGa. The corset will obtain things for celebrities that no other garment can. The corset or basque will reduce the waist instantly, improve confidence and posture, can be glamorous, eye-catching and worn in several ways.

Rihanna the singer and umbrella hit maker flaunted her sexy curves and brought New York to a stand still when she stepped out in an eye-popping outfit for a shopping trip; she was seen in a satin corset tops under a pink cardigan, and teamed it with a pair of white jeans and pink shades. Lady GaGa has recently been seen in a metallic corset to promote her single and when interviewed for Rolling Stone magazine appeared to be wearing nothing but a Perspex corset with a few carefully placed bubbles.

Kylie is well known for loving her corsets; the pop princess is seen in tight black corsets and thigh high stiletto boots. Alesha Dixon has vamped it up wearing a tight cream corset and bustle and with some wet look red leggings. The Halo singer, Beyonce has shown off her womanly assets to their full potential in eye-catching fashion corsets and designer jewellery both on stage and the red carpet. The America singer Katy Perry brought some extra glamour to the MTV Europe Music Awards in Berlin with a series of eye-catching corsets.

Corsets have had us in a lather when the soap stars of the small screen hit the red carpet at the awards, three TV beauties, Hollyoaks actress Hollie-Jay Bowes, East Enders’ Kara Tointon and Emmerdale’s Jenna Louise Coleman, dazzled in stylish corset dresses, with Hollie-Jay opting for a traditional black and white corset paired with a black skirt and platform shoes. Jenna Louise donned a flattering black corset and monochrome full knee-length skirt, while Kara chose a gold satin tutu dress.

Any doubt that women with curves, breasts and creamy shoulders can not be beautiful, have not seen the sight of Nigella Lawson, in a dazzling red corset dress. The Vivienne Westwood scarlet corset dress gave her a tiny nipped in waist and with her ample bust pushed up, made her shine with health and confidence.

So the message is that womens corsets are magic figure fixers to get you noticed, they are gorgeous and sexy, can be worn by anyone, not just celebrities. You could pair a corset with leggings and go out clubbing or to a party or with trousers, jeans or skirt for a more casual night out. But they can equally be worn in the boudoir. A good corset is more expensive than other tops, but they achieve things other garments can not, and if looked after, will last years as they don’t date.
