Dita Do

Picture 9





Love her or hate her (I personally love her) Dita Von Teese is so immaculate and polished its almost scary. But what does Dita do? As a girl, everyone called her by her given name, Heather Sweet. But by 15, Von Teese was drawn to a less than sweet aesthetic! She loved lacy lingerie, erotic dance, the pin up style, corsets, old hollywood...she started dancing in a strip club when she was 18 and played with the space to create playful and elaborate vintage dance routines. The burlesque came later in 1992, along with fetish and glamour modeling, costume design and acting. She is not the first woman to evoke the vintage burlesque visual, but she's certainly the most visible - Americas Next Top Model anyone? And she's got the best room of hats I ever did see.

These images are from InStyle and were found on The Vintage Valley.

I love her shes got such grace and sex appeal all at once. In that awkward teen phase I'd look at pics of her and say "its ok to have an ass" and just repeat that a zillion times.
(My mom and I have a room of hats haha, but hers is pretty sweet too.)

I love Dita von Teese, and I love the pictures of her houes. Most celebrities live in soulless and over designed white spaces, but I could totally imagine going round hers for scones or cocktails!

I love her too. Would love to have a proper nose around here house too - as that is probably never ever going to happen, these pictures will have to do! Thanks for sharing. Sally x

she is the ultimate woman! i can't believe that's her home!! i have some serious envy of her and the aesthetic she surrounds herself with. I don't know how she has the energy for it. I've NEVER seen a pic of her with a hair out of place. Amazing!

I think she is absolutely gorgeous and I'd love to steal her star crown from the first picture! :)

she is seriously a goddess. Have you ever seen photos of her going to the gym? It's honestly insane, she is ALWAYS dressed to the nines. I tip my hat to her dedication ;)
