Hey guys, I’ve added new images of Dita from the LA Britweek Christopher Guy Showcase Party. She was looking gorgeous wearing a black dress. She was also seen leaving a McCadden Space Studio and Axe Restaurant. Enjoy the images!
Thirty Seconds to Mars are teasing their new video and short film for their single “Up in the Air” with a set of previews throughout this week. In this exclusive clip, Dita Von Teese strikes a pose in an empty warehouse while riding a pink mechanical bull. “Mars Is Coming” reads the clip before spurting a frantic mishmash of animal and symbolic imagery.
“This short film is quite unlike anything we have ever done before,” frontman Jared Leto tells Rolling Stone. “With contributions from Damien Hirst, Dita Von Teese, US Olympic gymnasts McKayla Maroney and Jordyn Wieber, Maxwell Snow, Neil Strauss, a lion, wolf, a snake and, yes, some zebras, we take an epic, bizarre and hallucinogenic journey through a incredibly surreal landscape. It was exciting to explore new territory and once again work with the maniacal Bartholomew Cubbins [Leto's Dr. Seuss-inspired pseudonym] at the helm.”
Thirty Seconds to Mars’ album Love, Lust, Faith and Dreams will be out May 21st on Virgin.

Seller does not come with vehicle: Dita Von Teese puts vintage car up for auction on Ebay… with jaw-dropping photo shoot to fuel bidding warMay 11th, 2013| News| No Comments »
Many would kill to take a spin with her in one of her retro rides.
On Friday, the next best thing was made available to the highest bidder, as Dita Von Teese’s 1939 Packard 120 sedan was put up for auction on Ebay.
Unfortunately for her fans, the 40-year-old burlesque bombshell, who is known for her adoration of the 1940′s era, is not part of the package – the car, currently located in Costa Mesa, comes standalone.
The enigmatic stunner has used the car in various photoshoots, and these photos have certainly come in handy in the selling process.
Dita poses seductively in and around the Packard, in various alluring outfits true to her famous style.
The statuesque dancer and model wears vintage thigh-high stockings, black heels and long leather gloves.
A black high-waisted skirt with a frighteningly high slit is paired with a beige flowing shirt, whilst an embellished top-hat and veil complete the ensemble.
In another shot, Dita poses with her signature retro curls and deep red lipstick in an alluring bustier.
In case these fail to fuel the bidding war, the seller has also included a video of Dita cruising around in the Packard during a Forbes interview.
The seller claims that ‘Dita personally enjoyed driving this dreamboat of a car the car’ and that it ‘has been one of Dita’s favorite cars to own’, which should up the value – for her fans, at least.
The stunning vehicle is described as French-Blue, was apparently restored about 10 years ago, and drives ‘absolutely perfectly’.
The reserve price, which is hidden, has not yet been met but the current top bid as of Friday is $7,150.
‘The only reason she’s letting this one go is that she recently purchased a 1940 Cadillac convertible sedan’, the seller adds.
Fans of the raven haired dancer may be thrilled at first to know that the vehicle is available for inspection.
Those same fans would be disappointed to know that Dita would not personally be there; she is selling her beloved Packard via a third party.
The porcelain-skinned beauty, who was briefly married to Marilyn Manson, has been focusing on her business ventures of late.
In 2012, all-natural dancer and model developed her own lingerie range for Wonderbra and a make-up collection called Classics, in a partnership with the German cosmetics brand Art Deco.
She also recently launched her own clothing and underwear line under her own brand known as Von Follies.

Actor Russell Crowe has dismissed rumours suggesting he’s dating burlesque beauty Dita Von Teese, insisting they are just friends.
An article in the New York Post on Monday alleged the Gladiator star had struck up a flirty friendship with Von Teese, who previously dated shock rocker Marilyn Manson, after they messaged one another via Twitter.com, and editors suggested their relationship had turned romantic, with the pair enjoying an intimate couple’s massage in New York in December.
But Crowe has shut down the speculation about his love life and took to the micro-blogging site late on Monday to discredit the story.
He tweeted, “Dita Von Teese is brave, smart, sweet and elegant. She is a friend of mine. Who wouldn’t want friends like that? Friends, not lovers.”
He subsequently deleted the post, but not before it had been picked up by eagle-eyed fans and gossip bloggers.
However, the actor decided to leave a link directing fans to Von Teese’s new music video with British electronic duo Monarchy, which he had uploaded earlier in the day.
Crowe reportedly split from his wife Danielle Spencer in October and has since been falsely linked to Billy Joel’s ex-wife, TV chef Katie Lee.
Last month, he insisted he was determined to keep his family together and planned to return home to Australia once he finished filming in New York.

Hey folks, I hope everyone had a great New Year. I just wanted to let everyone know that I’ve added the rest of the Candids and Appearance images of Dita from 2012 that I’ve forgotten to upload. It turns out I even forgot some 2011 images as well! Check out some previews below:
Hey all, I just wanted to wish everyone a very very happy new years! Hope your 2012 was a memorable one and your 2013 year will be a great new year as well!
DITA VON TEESE says that the way she created her debut dress collection was not dissimilar to the way many designers make their seasonal offerings.
“I saw a very famous designer, who shall remain unnamed, in a vintage boutique in LA,” said Von Teese. “He was there with his whole team and they were taking pictures for pieces to inspire his next collection. I just thought to myself: ‘There’s no reason why I couldn’t do that.’ Vintage stores are where I buy all my clothes – I love the thrill of the hunt.”
The range – which comprises feminine retro-inspired dresses – was first launched in Australia earlier this year, but was made available to a British market last month when it debuted on US website shopdecadesinc.com. Priced between £373 and £620, each flattering look harks back to an age when glamour was a priority – a stark contrast to today’s popular off-duty pared-down-model style.
“That look never worked for me,” said Von Teese. “Any time I feel like being lazy, I think: ‘The day I don’t dress up, that’s when I’ll run into my ex-boyfriend – or worse, his new girlfriend. I feel better about myself when I look my best. I always find the time to put on my powder and do my chignon.”
The style icon, who counts Tilda Swinton and Diane Kruger as fashion heroines (“[Diane] is one of the only high-profile names I know who, like me, doesn’t have a stylist”), has a level of respect for the way British women dress in the cold.
“You do well in the winter and are very good at picking great coats,” she said. “In LA, no one really thinks about the importance of a great coat – they can’t be bothered. It’s always better when people take their time with these things.”

Dita Von Teese’s beauty mantras have “kept her going” through times of insecurity.
The striking Burlesque performer often reminds herself of these rules to keep her signature style in check.
Dita is a strong believer that beauty is something seen differently by everybody.
She added that although people have their own opinions on others’ appearances, they shouldn’t always be voiced.
“I have a lot of mantras about beauty that have kept me going,” Dita shared with Bella Sugar.
“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, which is very, very true. Everyone has different ideals on what is beautiful. I think it’s wonderful that everyone has their own opinion. There is someone for everybody. One mantra is that I won’t tolerate people who judge beauty vocally. Isn’t it interesting when someone says, ‘I don’t think she’s pretty.’ I instantly zero in on the person saying it, and think ‘I never noticed how ugly you are.’ It is a strange thing to judge someone’s appearance.”
Dita launched her second fragrance Rouge in the US recently. This follows her debut into the scent world with her successful self-titled perfume. Dita discussed how the process of creating a celebrity fragrance usually works, and explained why she chose to do the opposite from the norm.
“The process for a celebrity fragrance goes a little like this; you walk in to a fragrance house where all the noses are. Then they put about ten bottles down in front of you and tell you to choose one. I didn’t want to do that,” Dita stated. “I said I wanted to develop one on my own so I worked closely with the noses to develop one I like. I learnt a lot. I told them my favourite classic perfumes and came up with an entire new fragrance. It was a long, but fun, process.”

Dita Von Teese has revealed her rule for picking heeled shoes is “the higher the better”.
The burlesque performer revealed how she gets her signature look.
The 40-year-old confessed she is a creature of habit and will wear heels crafted by famous designer Christian Louboutin on most occasions.
“Christian Louboutin is one of my closest friends, so most of my shoes are his,” Dita explained to British newspaper The Sunday Times. “I go for a classic pump – the higher the better.”
Dita is well known for her classic retro style, which is reflected in her clothing as well as hair and make-up choices. The US star admitted that although a natural look is the one she goes for, some elements of her beauty have been achieved with a little help.
“I had my beauty spot tattooed on in about 1992,” Dita revealed. “On a whim, I went to this rockabilly tattoo shop in Orange County, California. There were these big greaser guys with tattoos on their knuckles, necks and faces, and they were very amused by me wanting a dot on my face.”
Dita revealed how she keeps her pale skin in check despite living in Los Angeles. The performer explained how sun cream is the key to maintaining her white face, and she regularly reapplies the product throughout the day.
“My white skin is natural, but I use a lot of sunscreen. I’m obsessed with the new brand MD Solar Sciences,” Dita continued. “I spoke to a dermatologist, who advised not to go higher than SPF 30 – the trick is to reapply frequently.”
