Dita Von Teese is Fashionably Fierce

Dita Von Teese is Fashionably Fierce

Dita Von Teese looks exquisite in Elie Saab at the Fashion Dinner for Aids at the Pavillon d’Armenonville on Thursday (January 29) in Paris, France.

“I was so shy in other ways but I was never shy about that,” the 36-year-old burlesque beauty said of her distinctive look. “For people to be looking at me because I was wearing an unusual hat or a strange dress and looking like I stepped off a movie set — I’ve been used to that for my entire adult life.”

“I started performing burlesque in 1991 and originally my audience was in strip clubs, pole dancing clubs, fetish clubs and I’ve watched the way it changed,” Dita told Reuters.

“I’ve been doing the same show all along but why has it become more fashionable? It’s interesting because I’m not the one that’s changed.”

  • Cedia

    Beautiful. She knocked it out the ballpark with that dress but please stop using Wenn. The Wireimage photos are much better quality and don’t have the flash issues Wenn seems to have.

  • Venus

    Aside from the heels, she looks exquisite…

  • Venus

    …Much better than some of her recent looks. Dita does old Hollywood glam very well.

  • Summer

    She has very good taste in fabrics and colors. She should work as a stylist. Some of the ladies on the red carpet this season really could use her help.

  • whisper

    Is the dress new or vintage?

  • Fashion 911

    Beautiful lady. Beautiful dress.

  • jaye

    I like her style, but this dress; not so much.

  • lakers fan in boston

    dont get me wrong i think she has a nice sense of fashion
    but i just hate her, she needs to get over this “50s or whatever age it is” looks
    i also dont like her because she reminds me of goths and emo ppl

  • Redhead

    From the waist up, Dita’s gown is divine. I love how she shows off her cleavage without looking like a slut. Take note, overpaid Hollywood stylists.

  • lea


  • Steve

    She looks like a beautiful, sexy vampire.

  • chris

    I gotta hand it to her. She loves herself. She thinks she’s the greatest thing since slice bread. Queen Elizabeth wannabe.
