It Girl. Dita von Teese is the Queen of Couture. Second City Style Fashion Blog

January 30, 2007 • Celebrity Style


Sinfully delicious, Dita von Teese has seduced world’s most preeminent designers and beauty industry experts. Taking the Paris couture shows by storm, she looked the epitome of style: easily a contemporary Vivian Leigh or Ava Gardner, but with even more of an edge. Mastering the art of taking it off and putting it on, the porcelain burlesque performer and model recently awed viewers at Art Basel in Miami with her cocktail glass performance and got an instant thumbs up when she ditched Marilyn "midlife crisis" Manson. (The only good thing that came out of their marriage was the great pics of her bridal event in Vogue).

But what makes von Teese fashion royalty isn’t just the designer names that grace her perfectly poised back. It’s her uncanny ability to create an atmosphere wherever she goes, perhaps the reason why couturiers flock to her. She’s perfection without plastic and you believe her illusion.. the real watermark of any lasting artist.

Miles ahead of her ex (and his temporary Dita poseur du jour), we can’t wait to see more of her, or less.

Dita sans her cocktail glass:

She ought to be in pictures. Stunning.

This dark-haired maven can wear a black dress and look like old Hollywood glam.. not a Goth princess.

She rocks it in red.

    I absolutely love Dita’s personal style.. no matter what she wears, she always looks sophisticated, elegant and beautiful. How many Hollywood women can you say that about?
