These are photos from an event in London last night for the launch of Cointreau Prive Pop-Up Bar. Your guess is as good as mine for what that is exactly. But no matter – because Cointreau’s girl (I think she’s the face of the brand, right?) Dita Von Teese was there, and she’s getting her style groove back after several wonky public appearances. I usually don’t care for pale girls in pale creams and whites, but this works on her and it manages to avoid the “bridal” vibe. Also, I usually dislike these cutout-dresses, especially when the cutout is at the waist, but the detail is done well here. Plus, this dress is a 360-degree experience – look at Dita from the back:
Um… how did I never notice that Dita has a great ass? She so does. Her back is lovely too. While Dita was in London, she also sat down for an interview with Time Out London. I just liked this – she’s not saying anything groundbreaking, but she just seems like a cool chick. I wish Dita was my friend!
Also at the Cointreau event – Kelly Brook and her magnificent rack. Only her rack was nowhere to be found, because it seems like Kelly duct taped her boobs down and squished herself into this tragedy of a dress. Why is this style popular now? You know who wore these kinds of oversized, poofy, faux-Elizabethan collars? Clowns. I like Kelly, but she needs to stop covering up!

Both look great!
Kelly. She’d look even better without the neck ruffle. Dita’s dress is too complicated to be elegant.
No game, Dita wins without any doubt! The dress is actually nothing spectacular, but her body is on point (I mean, look at that waist! Look at the back curve!) and her style is always perfect.
Kelly has an incredible body, even better than Dita, but this is absolutely the worst dress to wear for a big breasted woman – every woman, really.
The ruffle collar needs to go. Otherwise it could have been a nice dress.
Dita looks amazing!!
Like Kelly’s dress without that stupid collar but hands down Dita looks fab
Dita looks better
Kelly is a gorgeous woman but her clothes are awful
The waist ruffle is the biggest offense to me. She’s got a great hourglass figure and full bust and that ruffle at the waist sticking up and out kinda ruins it all. Wonder why she thought that was a good idea.
I agree. I immediately imagined lengthening the dress to the floor and ditching the waist ruffle. Would have made her look like a tall mysterious glass of potable and much more high fashion.
Nice to see Dita in a light color.
What are either one of these people famous for?
Dita can do no wrong in my eyes. She is just perfection.
Dita is divine.
Btw, LOVE your screen name.
Dita’s body is out of this world!
I love Dita’s style – its old Hollywood glamor. Kelly’s dress could be OK if she tore the ruffles off.
Face-wise = Kelly wins.
Fashion-wise = Dita wins.
if I could combine their bodies, and then make it mine, I would. look at that back!
Dita! But Where’s her hot french boyfriend? I haven’t seen him for a while.
Yes, please! Bring him back!
Kelly’s dress is a bit too binding to look good. One ruffle per dress is the rule. If she didn’t have such a nice figure it would have been even worse.
Dita looks fantastic! It’s a complicated dress but she is working it to perfection!
Isn’t Kelly wearing the same dress as Zoe Deschanel but hers had white ruffles. Like it better in black on Kelly.
I think Dita looks better. She looks beautiful and glamorous, but natural and effortless.
Kelly’s look is rather forced and a little messy, but not in the good way.
Dita looks amazing and I loved her interview. She comes across so well IMO.
Kelly is beautiful but that dress does her no favours.
I think they both are gorgeous. I prefer Kelly’s look here – I think the neck ruffle adds interest and the peplum is better than some I’ve seen (not looking at anyone in particular… Stella MacCartney). The side split is daring without being tacky.
The Goddess Dita’s dress would be nicer if it didn’t have those cutouts in the front and side, as they are too trashy for her. The plunging back is stunning though.
Do you think Dita is wearing that spray-can hair in the official Cointreau photos? Because in the you tube video her hair parting is very obvious, but totally gone in the press photos…. or perhaps they even do Photoshop for hair these days??
Dita looks more pulled together, but Kelly Brook always gets my vote (even if she’s the obvious loser). I hate the ruffles and her makeup looks pretty harsh, but I. Love. Her.
Dita did seem really nice and down to earth in that interview. I’m not sure I’ve ever actually heard her speak as herself.
Dita is FINALLY losing the shtick Betty Paige clothes & is looking very good in couture dresses lately. She is not a looker but does good with what she has.
Surpringly, Dita doesn’t look washed out in that cream dress. I also despise cutout dresses for the most part, but love this one!
Kelly looks like a bobblehead.
dita is beginning to lose her magic touch 🙁 first that ridic hat and now this. and her implants are usually flawless and natural looking but here they are too obvious. pamela anderson-obvious.
however i don’t like the shakespearean collars on kelly’s dress and the colour makes her look frumpy. so i’ll say neither.
THERE IS NO CONTEST!!!!
