• My name is Dita…
  • My name is Dita…

  • Queen of neo burlesque since the 90’s, Dita, her real name Heather Renée Sweet, created literally and figuratively, a real character between glamour vintage and sophistication almost 'surgical'. As Madonna hummed it very well: " my name is Dita, and I’ll be your mistress tonight… " Erotica !

    Focus look : Sophisticated Lady

    [multicol]Only one word: Vintage, vintage, vintage ! Dita von Teese likes retro since she was a child and is obsessed with pin up and Hollywood heroines of the forties and the fifities. Veronica Lake, Rita Hayworth or Bettie Page, Dita falls for an uplift corset, a hobble hem pencil skirt, long satin gloves and heels... high of course ! Perfect day and night, with silk, lace or vinyl, Dita opts for a sexy silhouette but always very chic with white and black, bar suits and other belted dresses. John Galliano and Marc Jacobs consider her as one the best dressed women in the world ! Bargain hunter since she was an adolescent, she keenly knows the vintage shops and the great couturiers. But she does herself some of her outfits because the beauty studied couture ! Now, with success, she creates her own lingerie collections and clothes inspired from her dream dressing which may make jealous Didier Ludot, the king of vintage.

    Focus surgery: scalpel, my friend ?

    [multicol]As she says, the sublime Dita, born in 1972, completely created her character of modern vamp, maliciously swinging from good pupil to very fetish master of the donjon. From blonde, she turned very quickly to red then to deep black. She dyes herself her hair with the products Revlon. At the age of 21, she confesses that she resorted to surgery and turned to a cup 85 D. She partied a lot in the 90’s and consumed a lot of unlawful substances, she said. Having lost a lot of weight, her bust never return to its initial size...no waffle like others !

    Focus body: body conscious !

    [multicol]Despite her relative small size (1m68), the beauty has dream measurements: 85-56-84 ! How does she do it ?! No particular diet, she eats healthy, avoids fries, cheeseburgers and cigarettes (strange !) even if she loves milk and biscuits, her weakness ! Rather lively, Dita regularly practices yoga, pilates and dance, a passion since she was a child. And she doesn’t like fitness rooms so she has a small trampoline at home…to jump she says with irony !

Focus face: porcelain doll

[multicol]The beauty must preserve her beauty capital, it’s her business ! Alternately performer, model, muse or cover girl, Dita must be perfect all the times, especially to play with her huge glass of Martini, her favorite one. Porcelain complexion and black hair, she runs away from the sun and entrusts her alabaster skin to the cosmetics Estée Lauder, the products La Mer and to the dermatologist of the stars, the doctor Lancer. Never without her false eyelashes, she highlights her look with a thick line of eye-liner for a doe effect very fifties. Her lips incendiary red ? She was the muse of MAC. Regarding her waved hair (a short or long bob), Miss Teese confesses that she travels without her hairspray Elnett by L'Oréal nor her heating curlers and she never goes to the hairdresser because she is always disappointed !

Focus perfume : Belle Epoque...

[multicol]Which perfume for the vamp of modern times ? Hers of course ! Nothing more chic ? She has just launched her third fragrance Fleurs Teese, a romantic floral perfume, after Rouge and Dita Von Teese, her first eponymous water. Otherwise, the pin up wears Passage n°9 by Dior and especially Quelques Fleurs of the master perfumer Houbigant created in 1912 that she has been wearing since she were 15... A very vintage logic !
