CHRISTIAN DIORS 2010 CORSET

How gorgeous does actress Mia Wasikowska look in this Christian Dior polka dot mesh and satin corset from the 2010 catwalk collection? This over the bust corset captures the ladylike, ultra feminine trend that is so present right now. The trend for underwear as outerwear has been spotted all over the high street with lace camisoles worn with jeans and flashes of brightly coloured bras are a big trend for night wear. I think this type of corset should be teamed with a fifties style full skirt and towering heels to capture that womanly trend. If your looking for an equivilant of this polka dot corset then why not try this Dita corset in black with white spots. Christian Dior eat your stylish heart out!

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.

JEAN PAUL GAULTIER

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.

NAOMI LADE BARE…

naomi-catwalk

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.

WONDERLAND

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 🙂

PALOMA FAITH

Paloma+Faith

I recently came across a certain red head that has been splashed across the fashion pages of the weekly glossies. It was Paloma Faith’s unique 50’s style that caught my eye to begin with, moving into a slight crush on the half spanish, half british singer/actress.

You’ll more than likely know Paloma’s first single, Stone Cold Sober and her appearence on Never Mind the Buzzcocks last week. The reason I thought I’d share my love with you girls is Paloma’s crazy, fifties style mixed with a large dollop of humour.

Have a look at these photographs and see what you think, do you think Paloma Faith is a style icon in the making or just another try-too-hard?
