Dita Von Teese. Queen of burlesque
Dita's corporate style is tenderness, grace, femininity. It’s very hard to imagine a “burlesque queen” in jeans and a t-shirt. Her image is always associated with girls from the past. Dita herself says that she found inspiration in her idols.
She often watched old movies with her mom. Rita Hayworth, Betty Grable - this is how she wanted to dress. However, when she was a teenager, her financial situation did not allow spending huge sums on designer jeans and cool sneakers. Since childhood, she studied ballet, but she thought it was boring and uninteresting, and she, as a creative person, began to try herself in a burlesque show, although before that she was already known as a strip dancer.
Unlike many girls, she had her own unique program, which she still replenishes with new numbers. Soon it became her vocation. It is her name that is associated with burlesque, chic, grace and incredible dance in a martini glass. Shocking star who married Marilyn Manson himself, a womanwhose fetish photos scattered around the world - in the soul a fragile and vulnerable person, striving to see the beautiful in everything.
Burlesque Queen and Antiques
Dita Von Tizsama is a work of living art. The burlesque star has a wonderful collection of antiques, works of art, gloves, underwear, and taxidermy, which she has been collecting for almost 25 years. In search of antiquarian things Dita is more abruptly than Sherlock.
Among the last exhibits of her collection:
• embroidered shawl of the 1940s;
• ballerina in a pink peignoir, 1950s;
• wood shelves with black wood;
• a set of six green champagne glasses from the 1930s and 40s, at a card table in a vintage box.
Dita believes that investing in art is part of her financial profile. To be at your best and feel more confident, to be affectionate and gentle in conversation, but to have an expressive look, you need to train a lot in front of a mirror. “The Queen of Burlesque” does not consider modern models to be the standard of beauty, many of them are one-day models. They do not have such a "person" who would "work."
One of Dita's favorite exhibits is the Victorian era motif - stuffed birds that are set on pale blue velvet,and glass domes are made in the shape of a heart inside them. Every time Dita is going on tour, a bird is with her. It does not allow anyone to touch them, because if you break these heart-shaped glass domes, it will be impossible to find the same replacement glass.
What about clothes? Favorite vintage sellers
Dita Von Teese prefers suits from Dior of the 1950s. The three-piece suit she bought in San Francisco is made from gray tweed with a blouse, and garters are attached under the skirt. This suit even has a serial number, a red tag. Dita’s costume found in stock purchased for $ 3000, and now it costs about $ 60,000.
Since the “queen of burlesque” loves stylish and unusual things, her jewelry is of a high level. She considers La Connie Parente to be the best in her jewelry making business. In 2002, Dita Von Teese shot for the cover of Playboy magazine, where she had the opportunity to wear the best coal-black crystal necklace. After the shooting, she bought it and never leaves him again.
Not only dance, but also books?

The second book, “Dita.StripTeese ”is a book about how to learn to be tender and sensual, to know how to set priorities and seduce men. Every woman wants to be like Dita, and after reading the book, many have succeeded. The main thing is to love yourself, understand what your peculiarity is and define your style.
