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.

REDUCED PRICE CORSETS

I love nothing better than a sale and my favourite burlesque based website, www.truecorset.co.uk, has reduced some of their gorgeous over the bust corsets in price.
My favourite pink corset, which I’ve had my eye on for ages, has been reduced to £47.00, due to marks on the bust hooks, which lets face it, can be easily remedied by a quick trip to dry cleaner. Other corsets in the sale are this Ivory Ella Over the Bust Corset, in sizes UK 24-36″, UK 22-34″ and UK 22-23″. These are all reduced due to small marks on the inside of the corsets, which when worn can not be seen. Price around £45, reduced from over £80, you can’t argue a small mark is worth missing out on one of these gorgeous steel boned curve creators.

CORSETS FOR CATS?

Jean Paul Gaultier once created a corset for his cat.

The designer – whose collections are famed for their boned waists – wanted to make a bespoke item for his beloved feline but soon realised it wasn’t a good idea. He said: “Do you know that cats can’t wear corsets? They can’t stand! Not at all – they just fall over. I know because I tried!”.

Another irk Gaultier wanted to air to Stella magazine was about modern day celebrities who don’t want to pay for his designs. He said: “I am not a businessman. When I first started out Hollywood stars came and tried on the dresses and had many fittings. Now they except the dresses for free. I hear some designers even pay for them to wear their clothes. It is hopeless.”

The 57-year-old Frenchman believes he owes a lot of his success to using ‘real’ women in his catwalk shows as other females can relate to them.

He said “The fashion press could not understand it. But I say, ‘Why not?’ It is what inspires me. I don’t like to be safe. I use what I see. There is no point in me sitting here in my couture house and not knowing what is going on out there. You have to be aware of what is going on in the street.”

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.
