Dita Von Teese: 'Lifestyle Mirror' Photo Shoot & Interview!
Here’s what the 40-year-old burlesque beauty had to share with the publication:
On getting into burlesque: “[Creating] elaborate striptease shows gave me an opportunity to express myself. It was something I just enjoyed doing.”
On her perfume line: “It was a dream come true for me to be able to create my own perfume. My signature scent is just my namesake. It’s a very elegant and sophisticated, voluptuous floral. That’s something I was really adamant about—making a really grown up, womanly fragrance. Glamour is something you can do yourself. I’ve always enjoyed the art of self-creation and that’s what I’m selling with my perfumes and my lingerie.”
On remaining true to herself: “I don’t have a persona I put on. People responded to me well and enjoyed watching me perform when I was being myself, and not trying to be sexy or trying to be somebody that I wasn’t. When I’m 90 years old, I will be wearing this red lipstick,” she says. “I’m not trying to please anyone else.”
