Above, Dita Von Teese at the 2008 British Comedy Awards on Sat, Dec. 6; and Edythe Hughes wearing the dress in the Marchesa Spring 2009 RTW show.
I wasn't too thrilled about this pale pink, draped chiffon cocktail dress when I saw it in the Spring 2009 lineup in September. Just something about the foofy floral paniers stuck to the sides. Something "ostrichy" about them. I could look at pics of Dita anytime — if someone is going for retro glam with gusto, it is certainly Dita. But, somehow I'm even less pleased with this dress on her. The color (or lack thereof) just washes her out and it seems ill-fitted — the waist and bust droop to the point that I feel like saying, "pull the dress up so it sits right."
