Now THAT's how you wear a cape!
Most humans would look silly in this ensemble, but the 40-year-old was positively regal in her black cape with lush red lining thrown over a curve-embracing, velvet black dress with peekaboo lace bra cups.
As per usual, she slid her dainty feet into a pair of gold-trim Louboutins.
And as far as we know, she's not a vampire, but we'd totally let her bite us if she were! Ha!

Mika fans are amazing!
Last weekend the Mika Fan Club held a special charity auction at their 5th anniversary party. One of the items auctioned off was a pair of Mika's personalized Converse shoes, which sold for an impressive $2800.
Money raised from the auction was donated to the London Air Ambulance for rescuing Mika's sister Paloma when she was impaled on a fence after falling 50 feet from a window.

One of our faves, Mika, has popped up in an ad for Hugo Boss' Element cologne in Russia of all places.
Oh well, at least he looks good!
MJ had enlisted Christian Louboutin to design his shoes for the shows but never got the chance to don the footwear due to his untimely death.
So, Louboutin gave the kicks to his good buddy Mika!
Of the shoes, Mika says:
"They are amazing. One is black soft leather lace-up which goes up the ankle to support Michael while he was dancing. Then there is the pair which must have been made for him to moonwalk in. THey are gold with a metal toe and the soles are really smooth and slippy to make it easy to moonwalk in. I think they are the only pair I might not wear….Then again, who knows, it might give me some magic power to help me dance rather than just jumping around the stage like an idiot."
Don't be so hard on yourself! But don't mess up those shoes by wearing them thin.
Mika suspects that the shoes were a gift from Louboutin to thank him from keeping him out of trouble: according to Mika, the two were at an Oscars afterparty and:
"Christian was so drunk he stepped on Robert [De Niro]'s girlfriend's dress and ripped it right the way up the back. Robert and these security guys were furious - I could see them glaring at Christian. So I grabbed Christian and said, 'Yes, he's an asshole,' and threw him into a cab before they beat him up. It was insane."
Yikes! Luckily for Mika, his good sense kept him out of trouble and earned him MJ's shoes!
