The Classic White Mary Jane Shoes

As the Sun has decided to make an appearance – albeit rather late AGAIN this year – the usual rise in demand for lighter coloured shoes has begun. A best seller this week, and a classically designed shoe that should be in every wardrobe – are the Leg Avenue White Babydoll Shoes.

Sporting a 4 inch stiletto heel – ideal for a bit of leg lengthening – and a beautiful, curved, concealed platform measuring 1 inch – these flattering, yet surprisingly comfortable shoes are dancing out the door.

Dita Wows At The British Fashion Awards 2012

Burlesque Queen Dita Von Teese stole the show, in our opinion, at the 2012 British Fashion Awards last night. The retro beauty arrived at the Savoy Hotel, London in a Jenny Packham gothic inspired, full length black gown, in striking stark contrast to her perfect porcelain skin. Dita’s lavish dress featured a suggestive plunging neckline, square cut shoulders and stunning intricate beading detail. Paired with her signature rolled, jet black hair, vamp red lips and coordinating nails the pin up princess out classed the majority of her classmates. A++ Miss Von Teese!

Katy Perry has been papped many a time sporting a range of burlesque inspired retro hairstyles, whether in pastel pink or mint green, the California Gurls singer is rarely without her glamorous ringlets.

Hotel heiress and most famous of party girls, Paris Hilton, may be lacking in curves but more than makes up for it with her wardrobe – and confidence! The blonde ‘hot’ celeb chose the burlesque theme for her 30th Birthday bash, arriving in a bejewelled red corset and matching bustle. Miss Hilton has also performed in her own burlesque show at the famous Pussycat Lounge in Las Vegas, dancing and singing with a martini glass finale.

Pussycat Dolls Lead Singer/ X Factor Judge / Future Mrs Hamilton – Nicole Scherzinger oozes glamour and sex appeal with her stunning curves, amazonian dark hair and eyes, but does not come from a burlesque background like her girl band colleagues. The ‘one with the voice’ has embraced the burlesque genre many a time, giving all others a run for their money. Most memorable was her show-stopping performance in the burlesque themed ‘Watcha Think About That’ video strutting her stuff in a lavish underbust corset and matching jewelled bra. More recently the star donned a red latex corset, matching opera length burlesque gloves and black fishnet stockings to attend X Factor contestant Rylan’s Halloween themed birthday bash. Apparently she was supposed to be a vampire….?
