Christina Hendricks Wears Dita von Teese’s ‘Follow Me’ Dress

“This is designed after a dress from the 1950’s that I have worn over and over for about eleven years, and I always get compliments on it. It is timeless and always chic, which makes it a perfect wardrobe staple… I have worn this dress over the years on red carpets, to events, parties and for many a romantic rendezvous. I’m especially happy to have an improved version of the original dress in my wardrobe.”

That’s what Burlesque queen Dita von Teese said when describing the “Follow Me” dress from her eponymous collection. Aside from her popular lingerie line, Dita debuted a fashion brand earlier this year, featuring dresses and coats with her signature pin-up style. If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you know that we love vintage style!

It also helps that Dita describes each and every item from her collection — how the design came about and how she’d style them. It almost feels like she’s sharing with us her tried-and-tested fashion tips! Imagine wearing a dress for 11 years!

‘Mad Men’ actress Christina Hendricks was spotted wearing the beautiful ‘Follow Me’ draped dress to the launch of Johnny Walker’s new drink, Platinum, in Soho, New York, on October 2. The feminine silhouette worked well against her porcelain skin and bright red locks. Just by looking at the dress, we can tell that it will work well for all body types — the draping, the length, and the drama — definitely something you’d want in your closet for the next decade!
