British designer Vivienne Westwood hates New York. But she loves LA and just opened a boutique there.
British designer Vivienne Westwood flew into Los Angeles Wednesday for the grand opening of her fabulous new Melrose Avenue boutique in Hollywood.
And if Christina Hendricks is not the perfect model for Westwood’s infamously supportive corseted creations, well, we just don’t know who is. I have a feeling we will be seeing the Mad Men star in lots of Westwood. Maybe even at the Emmys.
After the store viewing, there was a tres private dinner for all the stars at the infamous Chateau Marmont. Christina, Dita Von Teese, Malin Akerman, Anna Kendrick, Kristin Davis. Zoe Saldana and Heidi Klum had to cope with a seated meal wearing their fitted but fabulous fashions. Bet no one asked for seconds.
Tadashi Shoji is the designer/owner/president of the LA-based fashion house Tadashi Shoji, widely hailed for original designs, exciting and innovative collections. His designs are sought after by style-conscious celebrities of all shapes and sizes who find the perfect looks for on (and off) the carpets in his runway collection, his casual day dresses, petites and plus size offerings.
Many snooty designers simply won’t dress stars that aren’t a perfect sample size 2. Not Tadashi.
His famous fashion fans (both petites and plus-sizers ) run the carpet from Oprah Winfrey, Christina Hendricks, Gabourey Sidibe, Jennifer Hudson, Shakira, Tyra Banks, Deborah Messing, Emmy Rossum, Kate Walsh, Katy Perry, Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Love Hewitt, to Glee stars Lea Michele and Amber Riley, Modern Family actress Julie Bowen and Julia Ormond. Miranda Lambert wore his cream chiffon one-shouldered gown to pick up her 2010 Academy of Country Music Album of the Year award. But he even dressed Oscar winning Best Actress, Mo’Nique. for the Golden Globes. His designs look great on the runways but also great on fuller figured gals. See what we mean?
