As a vintage dresser myself she's also very inspiring to look at. My favorite eras are the 40s and 50s, and the women who's pictures I admire today are either very old, or dead now. But miss von Teese is alive and wearing all these fabulous vintage (or new) clothes today, together with that old fashioned styling and makeup I adore in the old movie stars. And the photos you see of her are in color too! Wow! For a lot of her red carpet appearances she even does her own hair and makeup! You can't say that about so many other stars of today! This is also a nice inspiration - if she can do it, so can I, and everyone else who wants to! Practice makes perfect!
So here I'm now gonna show you some of my favorite pics amongst Dita's dresses and outfits. Sit back and enjoy! You might want to put a towel over your computer keyboards before you roll down this page though. In case of drooling...
Love the transparency of this dress, and how you can see the garters and stockings through it!
A dream in pastel and lace...
More tulle for the people...
This is one of my absolute favorite! Just look at the golden peacock spreading out it's plumes on the skirt!
Old Hollywood glamour!
Simple, yet oh so pretty! The thing with making these wiggle dresses look good is to make it fit your own body like a glove. And don't forget to wear the right underpinnings!
This is also one of my favorites. Flowy, pastel colored fabric, and just the right amount of transparency! This one I really want to hang in my own closet!
Another well fitting wiggle dress. Look at the brooch!
The red dress Zac Posen made for Dita, for the Red Dress runway show. A campaign drawing attention to women and heart disease.
Sometimes all you need to look good is some read lipstick and a nice coat. You don't even have to wear anything underneath if you don't want too...
Gimme those leather gloves!!!...And the dress...And the shoes...And the bag...Please?!
I love necklines like this! Beautiful! Black leather can sometimes look...well...not so good...Then, at other times, it can look like this! *Sigh*...
But with all the amazing outfits we see this this lovely woman wearing, we should not forget that she looks just as amazing without them too!
