ALICE IN WONDERLAND FASHION

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.

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.

ONE PIECE TO IMPRESS

I was recently asked, as extronidaire of all things sexy, what one piece of lingerie should a girl wear to impress her man, whether it be the handsome new guy in her life or her husband who needs a little shaking up. I thought and I thought and even went to the lengths of discussing this with my male friends and it seems that a sassy pair of frilly French knickers should do the trick. Men can’t help themselves when they see a girl in French knickers and with it being the only thing you’re wearing I’m sure the man in your life will have no qualms. These gorgeous baby pink frilly knickers from True Corset are a sure fire way to get you noticed in the bedroom (or maybe outside the bedroom if your feeling risky!) and priced at £14.30 incl VAT means you’ll be able to treat yourself to one for every day of the week!

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.

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!

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.

THE ULTIMATE IN LEATHER CORSET

Wow. Beautiful shapes, intricate leather-work, and more current fashion trends than I care to name: Anticeptic Fashion have an Etsy store that should – if it doesn’t already – cater to both the alternative and the mainstream fashioniser.

Though clearly able to be worn with a fetish twist, I can imagine some of these pieces also working in a more classic way, sort of like an Hermes or Ralph Lauren belt to the extreme. You could feminise some of these beautifully with floaty florals or shimmering metalics – or rock them up with skinny pants and killer boots.
