DE MONTFORT COUTURE CREATIONS

I’m always so impressed when ever I see the corsetry work from the students of De Montfort Univeristy, on the invitation only couture corset design degree. I came across some beautifully designed corsets at last years London Graduate Fashion Week and have followed some of the students since. With links with leading lingerie publication, Lingerie Buyer, the students showcase their work at various trade shows such as the Harrogate Lingerie show and I’ve just recently found out that some the courses creations were featured in DJ Ironics ‘Tiny Dancer’ video. Take a look at these gorgeous designs.

DITA VON TEESE

I came across these photographs from Dita Von Teeses website, in the section, Dita’s Sweetshop, which I absolutely love. I thought I’d add them on here so you can appreciate the beauty. I hope one day I’ll have my own sweetshop and yes, dont worry, I’ll let you have a signed copy just like Dita.

GENTLEMEN PREFER BLONDES

marilyn-monroe--gentlemen-prefer-blondes

One of the all time greatest pinups has to be legend, Marylin Monroe and what better way to remember her than in Howard Hawks 1953 movie adaption of the 1949 stage musical. Monroe, along with actress Jane Russell, made the film an all time hit with Monroes rendition of the song ‘Diamonds are a girls bestfriend’ been sited as an iconic peformence of the film. I’ve added these pictures to remind us what a true pin up Monroe was and how her beauty is missed still to this day.

RUSSIAN HARPERS BAZAAR

Dita Von Teese is pictured here modelling designer Christian Lacroixs wedding gown for Decembers issue of Harpers Bazaar. I bring you these pictures because if you live outside the boundaires of Russia then you wont be able to witness the beauty that is Dita. I mean look at that flawless skin and her stunning figure in her lace bra and tuxedo jacket combo.

Dita commented on her love for Paris and LA. The 36-year-old burlesque stripping queen recently said, “Fashion week is over, and I have a day off to do whatever I want. I’m going apartment hunting. I want to live where the gays live… I’m going to live between Paris & LA for a bit & see who wins me over! There are things to love about both places.”

I just came across these vintage covers from Eyeful magazine, the american magazine from the 50’s that ‘glorified American women’ or so it said on the cover. Created by pin up artisit Peter Driben, these front covers should be framed and put all over my bedroom. Tres’ sexy, also love how the caption at the bottom celebrates these ‘corset cuties’, let me be one please! 🙂 x
