Dita Von Teese: Burberry is classic

October 4th, 2012| News| No Comments »

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 debuts cosmetics

October 4th, 2012| News| No Comments »

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.”

Dita Von Teese very involved with fashion range

October 4th, 2012| News| No Comments »

Burlesque dancer Dita Von Teese is ”very hands on” when it comes to her fashion, perfume and cosmetics lines and likes to be as involved as possible.

Dita Von Teese is ”very hands on” when it comes to her fashion, perfume and cosmetics lines.

The burlesque dancer – who has own range of vintage clothes, makes-up and perfume – says she likes to be very involved with every single one of her products as it needs to be something she is proud of.

Speaking about working on her second fragrance, Dita – who has teamed up with Cointreau to design a new evening bag – exclusively told BANG Showbiz: ”I was very adamant about not having vanilla or fruit or any sweetness you know. I wanted really grown up, sophisticated, seductive perfume, not, you know, girlie things. It took a year-and-a-half before we created something completely unique and new and it was a really fun process to find out what I really like and what I don’t like. For a little while in the beginning of the process they’d do reworks of the perfumes and I’d say ‘Did you put vanilla in there?’ and they’d say, ‘Yeah a little bit, but…’ I’d be like, ‘Oh, but I hate vanilla!’ so it was a long process to get it exactly as I wanted it.”

Although her clothing line, Muse, is quite new, Dita – who is famed for her glamorous style – is still very involved and she has been inspired by the clothes she wears.

She said: ”It’s a clothing collection inspired by some of my most iconic vintage pieces, and things that I think translate well, that don’t look like a costume drama.

”I’m very hands-on. I’ve done one collection so far, but I’m not doing seasons like most designers, I just keep refining the collection and changing the fabrics and such for each collection.

Dita Von Teese loves being single

October 4th, 2012| News| No Comments »

Dita Von Teese loves the “freedom” of being single.

The burlesque dancer – who was famously married to goth-rocker Marilyn Manson – is dating a lot of different men at the moment as there’s no one serious in her life and she’s enjoying playing the field.

Dita – who was recently linked to Hurts frontman Theo Hutchcraft – exclusively told BANG Showbiz: “I’m dating lots of different men at the moment! Boyfriend is a very strong word. I’m dating several charming men.

“I’m single and loving the freedom of being single and dating. It’s an exciting time. I’ve been in a lot of big relationships and I haven’t spent much time being single so I figured it’s a great time to be free and be without commitment.”

Despite her current carefree attitude to dating, Dita, 40, would like to get married again in the future because she makes such a good housewife.

Dita – who has teamed up with Cointreau to design a new evening bag – added: “Yeah (I’d like to get married again). I mean I was a good housewife. I cook, I make delicious cocktails. My friends always say, ‘Wow you’re gonna make a great housewife again,’ and I’m like, ‘I know.’ ”

Dita Von Teese Performs at Cointreau Summer Soiree

July 13th, 2012| News| No Comments »

Dita Von Teese went back in time to conjure up Forties silver screen icons Betty Grable and Carmen Miranda for her latest act, which she performed Wednesday night at the launch of the Cointreau Summer Soiree series at the Beverly Hills Hotel. The pool deck, where a crowd that included Mary-Louise Parker, Jeffrey Deitch and Ellen von Unwerth showed up to watch, was appropriately vintage as the hotel celebrates its centennial this summer. For her brand-new costume, Von Teese enlisted London-based designer Jenny Packham, whom she met last year.

“I’d been wearing a lot of her dresses on the red carpet because I really like the beadwork, crystals and embroidery, so when we met, I told her, ‘Some of your dresses would make great stage costumes,’” said the burlesque dancer.

So Packham watched some of Von Teese’s favorite films, “Moon Over Miami” and “Down Argentine Way” to get a feel for the Forties tropical vibe she was seeking.

“When Dita described her performance to me, I was hooked,” said Packham in an e-mail from London. “The outcome is seductive and glamorous in a totally tropical Rita Hayworth style. Dita always takes [my dresses] to another dimension, so it has been very exciting to collaborate.”

Von Teese had equal praise for Packham: “It’s not easy to create stripper costumes, and she did a great job because when each piece comes off it creates a new look.” The creation has eight pieces, including a long skirt, a sarong, a bolero jacket, a crystal headpiece, a beaded bra, beaded corset, orchid panty and mini bra.

“We did the mini bra to make the show PG for America, because they don’t always understand the pasties and G-string,” said Von Teese.

The shoes were Christian Louboutin embellished with Swarovski crystal orchids and the feather fans were designed by her friend and fellow burlesque dancer Catherine D’Lish, who has helped create the looks for nearly all of Von Teese’s numbers over the past 12 years. The music, composed and arranged by Chuck Henry, included classic Martin Denny tunes.

Von Teese said she’ll add the number into her permanent repertoire, which she is currently taking on the road in an hour-and-a-half-long revue called “Strip Strip Hooray.”

“This will be the last new number for a little while because each one costs between $50,000 and $100,000 to create,” she said.

But Von Teese is keeping busy with her other creative endeavors, including launching her second fragrance in Europe and her dress line, Muse by Dita Von Teese, at Decades in Los Angeles this fall. She also has a lingerie line in Australia and a makeup line in Germany. “I feel like I have ticked all the boxes of products I can speak about strongly,” she said, adding, “There’s no jeans line of course.”

Dita Von Teese’s Phone Snatched in France

July 1st, 2012| News| No Comments »

Dita Von Teese has taken to Twitter.com to hail an anonymous hero who recovered her stolen phone after it was snatched from her in France.

The model and ex-wife of rocker Marilyn Manson was perusing an outdoor market in Paris on Sunday (24Jun12) when a thief ripped her Apple iPhone right out of her hands.

However, a kind-hearted bystander jumped into action and raced after the perpetrator, returning Von Teese’s prized possession several minutes later.

The grateful pin-up has now heaped praise upon the stranger with a post on her social networking page, declaring, “Just had my iPhone snatched out of my hand at the paris flea market, but got it back thanks to a dashing hero that chased the thief down!”
