She does look very sad in that set, but yes, incredibly beautiful. I love seeing her without the red lipstick, she looks so fragile.

when she doesnt wear her makeup makes her look less chic, she is STILL stunning, but in a more natural bohemian way

CatWalkQueen.tv: Dita Von Teese talks fashion and shares her tips for a glamorous life
by Gemma Cartwright

Dita Von Teese is one of a kind. A tiny, perfectly polished throwback to a time when ‘making an effort’ involved more than a spritz of dry shampoo, some platform heels and a lick of mascara. She is always perfectly poised and impeccably dressed, with a smart, well thought-out answer to every question.

We were lucky enough to get some time with Dita when she visited London to show off the My Cointreau evening bag, her latest project with long-term collaborators Cointreau. The elegant cream box bag houses a naughty secret – a specially designed interior that holds all the ingredients to whip up the perfect cocktail. Sneaking booze in your bag has never been so glamorous.

After a peek at the bag itself (which is available in the UK at Selfridges Oxford Street) we settled down with Dita to talk vintage style and shopping…

One of the most interesting things to note about Dita is that, though she has a very evident vintage look, quite often her clothes are modern. On stage, her burlesque outfits are custom made corsets that take her already tiny waist down to an astonishing 16.5 inches. Offstage, she will often wear creations by designers like Elie Saab, Vivienne Westwood and Jenny Packham, but by teaming them with her trademark retro hair and makeup, they look like they’ve come straight out of the costume department of a 1940s movie, not straight off the catwalk.

Dita has a unique ability to pick out modern pieces that fit perfectly with her retro aesthetic. “I like modern clothes, but I don’t look for trends. I look for things that will look good on me.” She explains. “I collect a lot of vintage and I love the thrill of the hunt…I started buying vintage because I couldn’t afford designer clothes. Now I can wear both.” Her favourite finds are “authentic vintage, or great designers with a vintage feel,” all teamed with corsets, bullet bras and seamed stockings.

Speaking of seamed stockings, Dita has her own collection of them by Secrets In Lace. Besides being the global ambassador for Cointreau, she’s had a collaboration with Wonderbra, and now has her own lingerie range “Von Follies by Dita Von Teese” which launched at Target in Australia and is now available at Debenhams as well as online for global shipping via ASOS.com, Glamuse.com and Stylebop.com. Dita has expanded her empire even more with ARTDECO Cosmetics, and she’s also created a small range of dresses shipping globally from Shopdecadesinc.com.

It’s clear that Dita favours luxury and quality in her clothing, so how does she feel about the plethora of vintage reproduction brands that are now cropping up, offering the 40s / 50s look with a lower price tag and fewer of those intricate details? “I have a lot of their clothes, they’re really fun to wear during the day,” She explains. “If you want that pin-up look, they’re perfect. But you can’t compare the quality to vintage or designer – there is a huge difference.”

So what does she recommend to shoppers on a budget? “You can invest in quality, or you can buy for fun. I make both of those choices – I love pinup girl swimwear…but when I buy a coat, I’m going to buy the expensive coat to wear for years and years.”

The continued popularity of the ‘vintage’ look means more and more people are emulating a look similar to Dita, and the catwalks are full of 50s style silhouettes and New Look wasp waists. Does this popularity threaten to dilute her look, or does she embrace the trend and use it to her advantage? “I like it when this look becomes trendy, because my favourite designers make things that I can wear.” But she doesn’t feel like her look will ever become ‘normal’. “It takes a lot of effort to look like this, not everyone will want to do it!”

It’s true that Dita cultivates a style that’s hard to copy without time and effort, so it’s even more amazing that she does almost everything herself. She doesn’t work with a stylist and does her own hair and makeup. She considers herself “an expert on red lipstick” and only delegates one element of her beauty regime. “My nails are the one thing I don’t like to do myself.” She admits, showing off a perfect half-moon manicure in signature dark red.

So how do you get the look without the years of experience and the incredible wardrobe? Dita shared with us five ways to make life instantly more glamorous…

“Disintegration” featuring Dita Von Teese by Monarchy
On iTunes Monday, January 14, 2013

Burlesque queen Dita Von Teese dons her signature vintage corsets and gowns to incarnate a woman lost in sensual fancy in this video for electronic outfit Monarchy’s new single, “Disintegration,” directed by Roy Raz. “She’s a 1950s style housewife stuck in a toxic, dry relationship. She’s fantasizing, releasing herself in a dream world of lovers,” says the band’s Andrew Armstong. The fortuitous pairing began on Twitter, and after spending an extravagant Christmas in Paris together—joined by local characters like Catherine Baba and Diane Pernet—a friendship was forged. Soon Armstrong and partner-in-music Ra Black were penning songs for the master of striptease. The result is a synth-soaked track that brings model and author Teese’s inimitable suggestive touch to Monarchy’s soulful dance. “We considered doing an x-rated version of it,” says Armstrong. “Maybe we will some day.” Switching between stark domestic scenes to muscular choreography performed by Israel’s young Batsheva Dance Company, Tel Aviv-based Raz draws us into an imagined erotic world that is part retro, part surreal. “There should be something reserved, unreachable, unobtainable about an ideal muse—close enough to inspire but just out of reach to keep the mystery,” says Armstrong. “We have that in Dita.” Here Von Teese makes some confessions, including ex-husband Marilyn Manson's thoughts on her foray into music.


How did the collaboration come about?
I had done a couple recordings of me “talk-singing” Mae West/Marilyn Monroe style for my burlesque shows, but those songs together with onstage visuals is different to just listening to my voice. Monarchy believed in me, so I did it anyway, and asked them to make me sound good!

Have you always been interested in music?
I love music, of course, but I never had any intention of performing or helping create anything besides the music for my shows. I had a lot of input into things like styling for some of the music videos that my ex-husband [Marilyn Manson] did, but I wouldn’t ever have dared get involved in any other aspect of music. Actually, we played the song for Manson and the first thing he said was, “Why didn’t you tell me you could sing?”

How was it working on film rather than live performance?
I’ve been in a lot of music videos over the years, so I thought it was fun to be performing the lyrics while taking off my clothes for once! It’s nice to let go of the control of all of that and to trust someone. But I’m also a control freak about my hair, makeup, and wardrobe and doing it all myself for the video while also being in front of the camera isn’t so easy. I think I drove them crazy, asking if they could fix that “one hair out of place”!

What was it like working with Roy Raz?
He’s amazing. I loved the video he did for “I Won’t Let Go,” so when they told me they were trying to get him to do one for this song, I was thrilled to have the chance to work with him. We had an amazing time together in Tel Aviv making the video. It was an absolute pleasure, and delightful to be in that amazing city.

She looks absolutely fabulous in that Dior blue coat in #266, one of my favorite Dior collections, the color and shape is amazing on her.
