Dita Von Teese, burlesque dancer, girlfriend to an aristocrat, and ex-wife to a disturbing rock star, is not everyone's cup of tea. It seems that there are people who find her boring and unappealing. Well, not me. Here are reasons why I like her: she's intelligent and well-read, she has had her shares of troubles but has moved past them, she's sexy, and she always looks stunning in events. The following are Dita looks that I love.
Dita, wearing a one-should Dior, at the Christian Dior Fall 2007 show.
Who looks wonderfully put-together in a non-red carpet event?
I can't think of anyone who would look better in this Marchesa dress. Can you?
It seems unfair that Dita looks great wearing only simple pieces when I know I would look drab in them.
The cute bow does make her a birthday gift, huh? A gift who gives styling advice.
Seriously, I would not be scared of ghosts if they were as stylish as Dita looks here. The collar and pockets of the dress are lovely.
Dita looks stunning in a red numberat the Elie Saab show. A bit matchy-matchy but she pulls it off.
And the brassieres, of course. Here is Dita looking classy at the launch of her Wonderbra Party edition.
For someone who does the work that she does, she pulls off "sexy but classy" wonderfully.
Here is a look that will surprise anyone who is used to seeing Dita in formal black dresses. Doesn't she look like an Egyptian princess?
I think I want this as my wedding gown. It can work, right? Perhaps I'm just deceiving myself into thinking that I'dlook great in that dress as Ditadoes.
While I do not approve of the manicure, I love the dress she is wearing. All frilly and fun; perfectly complementing her dangerously sexy aura.
Why do I get the feeling that the dresses Dita wears were only made for her? Because, again, I can't imagine anyone else pulling this off.
Or is it the other way around? Surely, this look is something that even the impeccably-dressed Mrs. Draper will be too insecure to try.
Doesn't she look like a princess here? The photo is gorgeous, too.
Anyone would have looked like a tacky S&M fetishist in this dress but Dita gives it an air of class.
Okay, this lookis making me want to catch one of her shows.
And focus on the Jean Paul Gaultier ensemble. The detailing is exquisite.
That is one hair accessory that Blair Waldorf would be envious of.
This look just oozes class.
