Thursday a very varied celebrity guest list showed up at The Annenberg Beach House in Santa Monica, CA.
It was the venue for the opening of Louis Vuitton Santa Monica, which benefited Heal The Bay.
My showstoppers? Serena Williams’ moon boot, Rachel Zoe’s head-to-toe black and Dita von Teese’s understated risque look.
Keep reading to see exactly who wore what.
P.S. Get well soon, Serena!

From the moment WWD tweeted that Dita Von Teese had been spotted backstage at Jean Paul Gaultier’s Haute Couture show, we should’ve known something was up.
The end result? A runway strip show from the burlesque icon.
Dita details aside, the collection drew inspiration from Paris (Eiffel Tower hosiery and all), while making a bold statement with exaggerated elegance.

Coachella wrapped up Sunday but people are still talking about it.
Maybe the music really was good. To boot, the festival, now in its 11th year, drew a record 75,000 people daily. That’s 15,000 up from 2009’s average.
Check out what young Hollywood wore on days two and three, where anything eighties seems to have reigned.

Yesterday, Dsquared² hosted an afternoon cocktail and ribbon-cutting ceremony of its boutique on Boulevard la Croisette in Cannes.
The after-party guest list included names like Paris Hilton and Dita Von Teese.
We’re told Dsquared² also presented guests with exclusive sunglasses.
Btw, how long will it be before Paris ditches the aerobics-type headband? Seems like this phase is never going to end!
Next Thursday, H&M will officially debut several celebrity designs in the fight against AIDS.
Estelle, Katy Perry, Dita von Teese, Robyn and N.E.R.D are some of the A-listers who’ve signed on to help.
The project, called Fashion Against AIDS, is an awareness and fundraising project between H&M and the charity Designers Against AIDS (DAA),.
All the designs send a positive safe sex message to young men and women through the range of T-shirts, T-shirt dresses, vests and bodies, all carrying the celebrity designs.
“I’m happy to be involved with this campaign,” says Estelle. “I’ve seen the effects of what a dollar or pound can do for someone who doesn’t have access to medicines and even how it can help families affected by AIDS. Together we can raise protective awareness and money for a great cause.”
The Fashion Against AIDS apparel is only available in select stores, so be sure to do some homework before you head out.
