Alice in Wonderland inspired fashion is all over the place right now, and what better was to incorperate that look into your burlesque wardrobe that with a stunning, top hat in the style of who else, but the Mad Hatter! You could even base your routine around the film, with Tim Burtons remake giving plenty of inspiration for costume changes and dance routines. This hat is from www.truecorset.co.uk and comes in at £29.38 including VAT, made from velvet with a red and black ribbon bow to add that finishing touch.

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.
When I saw this advert for Jean Paul Gaultier I knew I had to show you ladies, just for the sheer beauty of the photographic styling. I love the nude coloured corset with the chocolate coloured lingerie. This model manages to look sexy yet demure, something burlesque beauties achieve effortlessly. Gaultier is lover of the corset design as is fellow fashion extrodinaire Vivienne Westwood. Their designs make women feel fabulous, just as a corset should, making your body the perfect, desireable hourglass shape. The iconic perfume bottle is known world wide, without the mention of Gaultiers name, just by the torso shape with a frosted corset design.
When wearing this little it takes a killer body and a large heap of conviction. Naomi took the Paris Fashion Week this year for Russian designer Igor Chapurin, modelling this sheer corset with magnificant head piece, teamed with a teeny tiny beige skirt.
If I had a body like Naomi then I would not only strut like this down the catwalk, I’d pick myself up and strut down the street. Who cares about the bemuzed looks I may get.
I can image this piece been worn by style cameleon Lady GaGa or Gwen Staffani, maybe teamed with a nude camisole to make it more accessible to wear through the day.
“I bought a few items at his store in Moscow and he asked me if I would walk in his show,” offered Campbell, who lives part-time in the Russian capital. “It’s such a vibrant city. There is a lot going on there right now in design.”
I cant really imagine the Russains walking round in this clobber taking into consideration the mighty cold winters they have.
Since glamourpuss Megan Fox came on the scene all I can notice is her lusious locks and teeny tiny waist, made even smaller by her corset costume whilst filming Jonah Hex. She looked even cooler when shot for Wonderland Magazine’s September issue. Take a look at these gorgeously shot pieces, could her waist get any smaller. Think my eyes are turning a certainly shade of green 🙂
