The new, ladylike silhouette from Fall ‘10, with its fifties-inspired full skirt, has gotten no end of coverage in the press but hasn’t yet made as much of an impact in the world of celebrity dressing. But for Louis Vuitton’s Santa Monica store opening last night, a few brave souls took Marc Jacobs’ retro dresses for a spin—and came out, we’d say, the better for it. Sure, there were plenty of red-carpet-as-usual minis (most, of course, by Vuitton), but Modern Family’s Sofia Vergara and burlesque queen Dita Von Teese went long. We especially liked Vergara’s calf-length sleeveless navy version, worn without the belts styled with it on the runway. With an LV clutch and simple black pumps, we’d say she did her fifties forebears proud.
