Famous Tutus – Katy Perry’s ‘Part of Me’ red-carpet outfit

Katy Perry’s fly-on-the-wall documentary film ‘Part of Me’ premiered in London and the star sashayed down the pink (not red!) carpet in a sparkly $4000 Marchesa dress with ballet tutu ruffles and a frilly neckline.

           

We’ve come to expect that Katy would wear something wacky, but she really looked quite glamourous in this dress, and let her crazy accessories do the talking – including these Union Jack eyelashes, chunky ring and umbrella to shield her from the British weather.

And this is not the first time that Katy Perry has featured in my ‘Famous Tutus’ category – Here’s my blog post featuring her jazzy on-stage and off-stage outfits! Plus Marchesa’s designs are featured in these following posts:

Gothic fashion at the London premier of Snow White & The Huntsman

The wicked stepmother stole the show at this week’s London premier of Snow White & The Huntsman, as Charlize Theron stepped out in full-on fairytale fashion in this floaty Dior Couture gown.

                  Time for a change: Kristen appeared in her trademark trainers, before switching to heels behind a bush  

The long sheer layers of gothic black tulle proved an absolute show-stopper as Theron swept up the red carpet and upstaged her co-star Kristen Stewart who looked more-than-a-little scary in an OTT lace number from the Autumn/Winter 2012 Marchesa collection (and the trainers didn’t help the look much either!).

What do you think of this scary-fairy style? Will you be slipping on your gothic lace and tulle this Autumn/Winter? Let me know! x

Famous Tutus – Lucy Liu in Marchesa

At the premiere of Kung Fu Panda 2 Lucy Liu wore this wedding-dress-ballet-tutu outfit by Marchesa. This designer has already featured a few times in the Cassiefairy Famous Tutus Hall of Fame as Marchesa is renouned for creating flirty layered tulle concoctions!

         

Personally, I’d be happy to get married again in this dress (if only I could afford it!) so here’s the Cassiefairy version that I’ll be wearing in the meantime:

Ballerina Fashion at the Costume Designers Gala

One of my lovely fairy friends pointed me in the direction of this image of model Miranda Kerr at the Costume Designers MET Gala event last week:

The 28-year-old Victoria’s secret model channeled her inner ballerina as she wore a stunning white strapless tulle and lace Marchesa gown and Nicholas Kirkwood ivory lacy platform heels. Its a very striking look and is exactly what I would choose to wear if I was attending a costume designers event!

This tutu dress has influenced my own designs for a sparkly white tutu that I will be taking to the Fairy Fair at the end of the month:

Tutus in fashion ?

I ‘ve been having a look around on the internet for some tutu-based inspiration from fashion designers that I admire and some of these are absolutely beautiful – but then again, some are absolutely crazy and even I would never wear them out in public! Let me know what you think of these designer gowns and what inspiration you think I can draw from these images!
