Wow. We wouldn’t have been able to tell if the person we spotted was indeed Avril Lavigne if it weren’t for the dead-giveaway skull ink on her arm, among her other tattoos. The 29-year-old Canadian artist exchanged her sneakers, studs, and plaid shirts for a more sophisticated glamazona look at the release party of her self-titled album a few weeks back. Seems like the blushing bride look hasn’t quite left the newly married singer just yet.
Avril wore a dress by Vivienne Westwood Red Label paired with nude platform pumps. Her neck accessories were kept to a minimum, while she generously frosted her arms and hands with graceful yet heavily encrusted jewels. She kept her waist-long hair in mermaid-like loose waves.

We’re huge fans of Vivienne Westwood, but we’re a bit troubled by the fit of this dress — it doesn’t seem to sit well around the hips because of the waist ruching. Also, the black version kind of looks like trash bag couture. Sorry, Mrs. Westwood. We still love you, though. The bow is pretty adorable, and the metallic wine color Avril picked out is perfect for her punk-meets-lady image.
This dress is still available in black at Matches Fashion.
