We were half expecting to see Dita Von Teese in some retro-pinup look at the amfAR Gala held in Beverly Hills on Wednesday, but somehow that never materialized as the burlesque queen actually chose to cover up for the occasion.
Dita arrived at the event in a floor-length deep purple creation that feature a low-cut neckline and a nipped waist detailed with a jeweled belt. Complementing the outfit were Dita’s signature beauty look — red lip color, cat eyeliner, and wavy tresses styled a la old Hollywood. The ensemble was completed with a pair of ankle-wrap pumps from Christian Louboutin.

A closer view of Dita’s ankle-wrap pumps from Christian Louboutin
Dita’s seemingly old-fashioned ankle-wrap satin pumps from Louboutin aren’t available online, but you’re welcome to check out other more modern styles from the designer that are currently being offered.
If you fancy the retro look of her shoes, you can try the Christian Louboutin “Ditassima,” a pair that appears — though probably just a coincidence — to be named after Dita herself. These pumps feature patent leather uppers, low-cut vamps, and 4-inch-tall heels.
For gals on a budget who want a similar pair, check out the “Cohearent” from Nine West instead. These shoes are just as retro-looking with their rounded toes and ankle-wrap design, but they will not cost you as much at $89:
