Dita Von Teese: A Fetish For Fashion

Dita is well-known for her couture corsets, perfect pin-up makeup, and flawless outfits.

This goddess seems to take an almost fetishistic pride in her appearance…And why shouldn’t she? After all, this is the woman who almost singlehandedly sparked the modern burlesque movement. She’s entitled, damnit.

So, take a look at this wonderful interview where she explains the true origins of her vintage obsession. A very thoughtful analysis of the burlesque and pin-up scene, asserting that her beauty is entirely “created” and that “anyone can create this”…”anyone can do what I do”. I can’t say enough great things about this video. Take a look:

So, what do you think? Are you as surprised as I am by her kittenish soft-spoken voice? Somehow, I expected her speaking style to be as brazen and in-your-face as her performances. And yet I’m not disappointed. In a way, it softens her. In fact, I think her quiet intelligence makes her seem more relatable and almost vulnerable…You?
