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.”

Simply red: Dita Von Teese covers her curves in an all rouge ensemble as she performs intimate burlesque showOctober 4th, 2012| News| No Comments »
While the majority of country sat watching the closing ceremony of the 2012 Paralympics, Dita Von Teese put on an alternative show.
The burlesque dancer did what she does best as she took to the stage at The Arts Club, London, and put on a racy spectacle on Saturday night.
The 39-year-old may be approaching her 40th birthday at the end of this month but she showed no signs of aging.
The raven haired beauty looked sensational in a red mono strap dress that teased with just enough of her chest area on show.
The classy frock also showed off Dita’s enviable and world famous hourglass shape as she teamed it with rouge lipstick and matching heels.
The star wore her dark locks with gentle curls in them as she hosted the night to launch her My Cointreau Evening bag.
The vintage styled handbag was designed by Dita herself and will be sold exclusively at Selfridges.
Guests at the party were treated to specially made cocktails called MargaDitas as well as getting to witness the dancer’s routine up, close and personal.
Dita had earlier spoken about her excitement at being in London when she tweeted her 1.2million followers.
She said: ‘Arrived in London, doing a mini-show at Dover St Arts Club for members tomorrow night. (&looking to bring StripStripHooray! to London soon!)’

Dita Von Teese drinks a special green smoothie ”every day without fail” to help keep her slim.
The 39-year-old burlesque dancer credits the ”glowing green” drink to her enviable curvy figure, and admits she sometimes consumes it twice a day.
Dita – who has teamed up with Cointreau to design a new evening bag – exclusively told BANG Showbiz: ”Basically what I’d do is I’d have the green smoothie in the morning. Sometimes I’d have it for lunch, or from early morning until midday. Then I’d have a small lunch, vegetarian based, like a salad. Then I’ll eat my normal dinner at night.”
Dita – who turns 40 at the end of this month – follows the recipe from a book called ‘The Beauty Detox’ by celebrity nutritionist Kimberly Snyder.
Although she admits she does like to treat herself, Dita says the book has taught her how to eat a nutritionally balanced diet.
She said: ”I’ve learned a lot about what foods are really good and really bad. There’s a lot of myths going around.”
Despite working out on stage with her high energy performances, Dita – who is famed for her martini glass strip tease – says the smoothie is the main reason she is in such good shape.
She said ”I wouldn’t really say burlesque is what keeps me in shape. The green smoothie, that’s my number one secret.”

Dita Von Teese is a fan of British label Burberry’s “classic style”.
The legendary burlesque star revealed her passion for the brand’s signature style at the Spring/Summer 13 showcase of Burberry’s latest collection during the recent London Fashion week unveiling.
The raven-haired beauty explained how she feels connected to creative director Christopher Bailey’s designs as they compliment her own taste for timeless elegance.
“Burberry was luxurious and classic style, it was very British,” Dita told British television show Lorraine about the Burberry collection. “I love this kind of classic look.”
At the Burberry showcase other celebrity fashion fans in attendance included One Direction boy band star Harry Styles. The cheeky chappie joked about his reputation for being a ladies’ man when asked about his connection with the fashion world.
“I think it’s nice to just put nice clothes on,” Harry smiled.
Also in attendance at London Fashion Week was Slumdog Millionaire star Dev Patel who admitted he receives some help in the wardrobe department from his girlfriend Freida Pinto.
“No I’m not a fashionista. I feel kind of naked without my girlfriend,” Dev humbly explained. “She does dress me usually, she gives me hints and things like that.”
Dita Von Teese has launched her new Artdeco make-up line.
The style icon has released a collection of products designed to help achieve her recognisable light, matte complexion, striking black lash line and seductive red lips.
Dita took to her Twitter page to announce the new 13 product fall range she has personally designed for Artdeco’s website.
“My new @ARTDECO_beauty Fall collection can now be viewed online here (sic),” Dita tweeted about the range.
The Burlesque beauty is known for not using a make-up artist to help her get ready, preferring to apply her products herself. In connection with the launch, Dita explained that applying make-up is one of her favourite things.
“I love the ritual of sitting at my dressing table and applying make-up. It’s a wonderful part of being a woman!” Dita exclaimed. “I taught myself to do my own make-up so that I can have a quiet moment to transform before I start my day. With practice and patience, you don’t need a glam-squad to achieve beauty.”
