Dita Von Teese: amFAR Against AIDS!

Dita Von Teese shows off a bit of leg (and garter belt!) at the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS 2009 Cocktail Party at the Hotel du Cap during the 2009 Cannes Film Festival on Thursday (May 21) in Antibes, France.

The 36-year-old burlesque queen wore dress from the calligraphy collection of Jean Paul Gaultier Haute Couture. She finished off her look with Christian Louboutin pumps.

Dita tweeted, “[My dress] should get me sufficiently ridiculed in the US=Success!”

I like the dress. Does that make me un-American???

Ms. Von Teese also encouraged Sharon Stone, a tireless advocates for AIDS research. She added, “Go,go,go Sharon! Extract [millions from] the film industry for the cause!!!” 10+ pics inside…

    It’s a beautiful, exotic dress.

    Dita’s been wearing a lot of black and white lately…

    Aside from the makeup, she is pure perfection.

  • Anya

    She’s looked so pretty at Cannes.

  • Love the Teese

    Props to Dita for her continued support for AIDS organizations
    and charities.

  • Je Suis

    Love Dita, but please also post Diane Kruger and Marion Cotillard’s pics.

  • beatrice

    I think she’s stuck in a mild rut, makeup-wise, but her dedication to classic vintage style blows my mind. She is probably one of the best dressed female celebs of today and she doesn’t even use a stylist. She just needs a new makeup artist.

  • charmed

    I’d like to know the secret of her perfect, pale creamy complexion.

  • tookie

    She looks beautiful, though a tad overpowered by the gown.

  • scout

    The dress is pretty, but her makeup is too much.

  • Venus

    Yes, that really is an incredible dress. A real show stopper…

  • Venus

    …the detail is exquisite!

  • yes we can

    Go Dita! Go Sharon!

  • betsy

    it’s very ornate but she pulls it off..i guess.

  • Lynne

    She’s okay looking. She seems kinda weird

  • mena

    I would like to live in this girl’s closet for a day.
    She probably gets all this stuff for free too.
    Not fair!

  • afterglow

    Other than the heavy makeup, she looks stunning!

  • kitt

    I’ve loved all her Cannes’ outfits this year.
    She really outdid herself.

  • cinnabon

    She is so beautiful.

  • Grad


  • Elric

    Cute. Her face seems lighter than the rest of her body.

  • bESS

    her face is kind of weird, sometimes she looks like a ‘tran.ny’ but the dress is so cute.

  • marina

    beautiful exquisite dress

  • Pepper

    Dita’s skin tone is kind of shocking but she has a pretty face.
    I would love to own that dress.

  • Lance – Outsourcing Company

    Somebody want to bring the fashion from 1960.

  • TWPumpkin

    She just screams…”look at me everybody!”. Total media whore.

  • kristy

    why is she famous

  • hrhkat

    Its not really fair, its actually a gorgeous dress but it might not look great on plumper people, only a few people could wear that dress and look drop dead gorgeous in it, Dita is one of them, that dress fits her like a glove. I dont know why she would think people would ridicule her for it, its a very smart dress and architectual, wtg dita.

  • Angiefan

    Hi I always see people making fun of this place on Dlisted in the open forum and wanted to come check it out. It ooks like a nice enough place here. Dita is gorgeous. I love the way she dresses.

  • Nativenyker
  • CJ

    who the hell is this person and why is she always on this blog??????????????…………….honestly i have no idea w hy this pe rs on is “famous”………………………

  • fashionista

    I love her style. She would look a lot younger without the Kibuki makeup.

  • Jeannified

    LOVE HER! What a dress!…and those shoes…let’s not forget the SHOES!

  • Alfons

    Dita… its been a long 15 minutes, but the time is almost up. Your act is getting tired old woman.

  • sadie

    ha……she should have appeared with Adam Lambert on American Idol when he was performing with the rock group- KISS.

    He was awesome!

    Dita’s outfit would have blended in nicely.


  • molly

    She looks wonderful. That dress is beautiful and she is about the only person who could pull it off but…
    I really don’t understand that comment about getting ridiculed in the US. What do we not have any fashion sense?? I just think that was a really unnecessary comment that takes away from how great she looks.
    I will admit the make is slightly on the heavy handed side but I think with they whole look she is going for and always goes for it works.

  • You/Me

    Mmm, I guess I’m un-American too because I love the dress. What I don’t like is that Von Teese feels the need to disparage the U.S., it’s not America’s fault that she doesn’t always have the greatest taste in clothing. Geez. I hate these celebrities that dog the United States when they are overseas then turn arund and come back here where they know their bread is buttered. A-holes.

  • lakers fan in boston

    the dress is nice and weird in a good way
    but i just hate her
    she’s a no talent loser who does burlesque
    and as usual she’s pale as shit, her feet r disgusting it’s almost like paper white
    defs love the white girls, but this chick is beyond white, just pale

  • gemma

    She is not disparaging Americans. She was referring to the U.S. tabloids and joking around on twitter. I like her taste in clothing but if you’re not into vintage then you probably wouldn’t like her style.

  • LC

    This woman has parlayed a stripping and dancing career into her own multi-million dollar empire. She must have some level of talent and business savvy. She is definitely making the most of her 15 minutes.

    Love the dress too!

  • Wi

    No one can wear that but her! Somehow she just manages to pull of anything.

  • Noticias de famosos

    Dita dress is really beautiful, the top is very
    Interlaced with this pretty skirt and, in addition she is
    even with perfect transparency. Who could have dressed as a
    this at home … (but with some transparency unless, of course ..)

  • loco

    hoorayyy,DITA in GAULTIER.i can’t help it,it’s my fetish!!! :-)

  • misscriss

    Wow, she wore a lot of beautiful dresses lately and this one is just great, it looks, I don’t know, very art-deco to me…
    I’m not so crazy about the short hair but it still looks so perfect and shiny all the time.
    And I don’t think she literally wears tons of make-up, when you use red lipstick and eyeliner and you’re pale people get the wrong impression. There are lots of celebrities out there that put on just as much make-up, the only difference is they use other shades and colors.
