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.”

The burlesque dancer,39, has learned her pet pooch has died and she posted an update to her social networking site.
She said: ‘My beloved Eva passed on tonight. Thank you for all your kind words. It means a lot to me.’
Exactly how the pet pooch passed away is unknown.
On Monday the model appealed to fans to help her find her beloved canine after it went missing.
She posted to her WhoSay account: ‘My dog Eva is missing, if anyone in Los Feliz/LA sees her, email Cali@dita.net. Good thoughts for her return are also appreciated.’
Dita also posted a series of pictures of her pet as well as a shot of herself in lingerie with the long haired Dachshund.
The burlesque star was often seen out and about with her dog and she often included her furry friend in photoshoots with her.
In the meantime, I’ve added the latest images of Dita in the gallery.

New York Fashion Week kicked off in style last night with the store launch of Galeria Melissa, the first international flagship store for the shoe brand outside of its native Brazil.
The store, in the heart of Mahattan’s SoHo, on Greene Street, incorporates retail with an exhibition space to keep with Melissa’s ethos of celebrating and combining art and design with fashion. The white exhibition area was launched with work by Brazilian artist Eli Sudbrack, showing a projection of a vibrant multi-colour video installation against the room’s back wall.
On display for the guests to admire were Melissa’s collaborations over the years including pieces designed by Thierry Mugler, Gareth Pugh and most famously, Dame Vivienne Westwood.
The fashion crowd came out in force to support the new store – despite the snow. Designers Marc Jacobs and Jason Wu (Wu has also designed a collection with Melissa) were joined by model Anja Rubik and Victoria’s Secret ‘Angel’ Alessandra Ambrosio.
All the guests were eclipsed however, by the arrival of pint sized glamazon Dita Von Teese – who left the crowd falling over themselves to get a picture.
