Here at MTV Style, we’re ALWAYS scouring the wires for what the fashionable peeps of the world are wearing next, so naturally, we spent a hefty (jury’s still out on whether this is healthy) portion of our night clicking through the images of the Fall/Winter 2011 Paris Haute Couture Week and the closing party hosted at VERSAILLES (no big deal, we totally go there for lunch, like, all the time).
The thing we noticed immediately from the red carpet shots at Trianon Palace is that the alabaster-skinned burlesque beauty Dita von Teese is TOTES wearing the exact same Alexis Mabille gown that Leighton Meester wore on the cataclysmic 21st episode of the fourth season of Gossip Girl (ZUT ALORS!).
While we love that both were channeling Old World glamour, we just die that Dita dates a vraiment Français boyfriend Louis-Marie de Castelbajac (son to French designing royalty Jean-Charles de Castelbajac) and that IN THIS VERY EPISODE Blair Waldorf spurns *spoiler alert-ish BUT come on, it’s ALWAYS dramz with these two* Chuck Bass to canoodle with Prince Louis Grimaldi! The parallels are seemingly endless. We love when life imitates art. Unless current events can be described in terms of soap opera devices on major CW shows, it’s hard to know what’s going on. Hmm…we should probably look into whether that’s healthy, too.
