Yea, Nay, Or Eh: Alexis Mabille’s Double Vision
We cheered for up-and-coming Parisian designer Alexis Mabille when Keira Knightley selected his strapless dress with tulle trim for the London premiere of her film The Duchess. Now the frock has made a second high-profile appearance, on Dita Von Teese at the Dsquared² party in Cannes. An interesting coincidence, considering the stars don’t exactly share a personal style (or figure). Who wore it best? We have to go with the pin-up girl on this one—Von Teese’s hourglass shape and delicate heels make the dress look enchanting, while the more willowy Knightley comes across as a prom look gone wrong.
