Dame Vivienne Westwood touched down in Los Angeles Wednesday night to celebrate the opening of her new Melrose Avenue store with a few hundred of her closest friends and co-host Lauren Taschen. Dita Von Teese, Malin Akerman, Christina Hendricks, Anna Kendrick and Kristin Davis squeezed themselves into her corseted creations for the event, which filled the two-story store and the rooftop deck. “I’m not my slimmest underneath all this, but it’s holding me in,” said Davis. “Plus, Vivienne is into it. She perfected this look.” For her part, the designer shrugged, “I just do what I love doing. There’s a muse and a story that inspires each one of these dresses.” Afterward, a select group caravanned to Chateau Marmont for a seated dinner in the parlor, where Heidi Klum and Zoë Saldana joined the party. “I actually look like I have cleavage in this dress,” said the gamine Saldana. “Who knew? I’m loving it!”
