Women We Love: Dita Von Teese

The “Queen of Burlesque”, sexiness, elegance, and fetish, Miss Dita Von Teese is a fair skinned beauty that we all can’t help but love.  Armed with a vintage style and enough sexual confidence for all of female-kind. Dita is one of the first names that comes to mind where modern dance is involved. As an accomplished ballerina, model, and burlesque dancer Von Teese, born Heather Sweet, is in a sex class of her own.

A fan of the 1930’s, ‘40’s, and ‘50’s burlesque shows Dita embarked on her career at the age of 18, as a stripper in California. However, the creative and innovative Von Teese was bored with the “average” costume and routine and put her costume design skills to work as she re-invented her own look.

Before becoming a burlesque dancer in 1993, she gained fame in the fetish world as a tight lacer.  She was even featured on the cover of a Japanese bonding magazine.  Dita’s careers lead her to become the first guest star at the Parisian Crazy Hoarse Cabaret Club (October 2006).  Her 1920’s inspired shows have featured a full shower, powder compact, and her signature martini glass routine, which can be seen in Ex-husband, Marilyn Manson’s music video for “Mobscene”.

Her vintage look and sex appeal has ignited the attention of the fashion world, as Dita, a fan of Dior. Marc Jacobs, and Versace, is a familiar face at all the shows.  Her unique look, slim physique, and elegant tastes make designers gravitate towards her, walking the catwalk for designers Heatherette, Giambattista Valli, and Moschino.

Dita’s resume continues to blossom as she has over three Playboy features, book and album covers, and is an author: Burlesque and the Art of the Teese/Fetish and the Art of the Teese, in which she gives her opinion on the art of burlesque dance.  She has also appeared in soft-core porn films, season 7 of America’s Top Model, and a host of other films.  Dita Von Teese is a woman we love because she is comfortable in her skin, confident, graceful, and stylish.  She does what many women and men secretly fantasize and has made history while doing so.
