Dita Von Teese turns 41 today but she is not afraid of her age.
With her powder-pale face, blood-red lips and dark, cascading hair, the burlesque star looks as though she stepped out of one of Bram Stoker’s fantasies.
Dita Von Teese appeared on Vanity Fair’s 2013 Best Dressed list alongside Kate Middleton, Gisele and Kerry Washington. The magazine claimed she was the antidote to a Girls Gone Wild generation and described her as “a curvaceous, alabaster-skinned, immaculately coiffed stripper with a fondness for retro fashions and the attention to detail to do it right.” She has been a featured guest on America’s Next Top Model, celebrated on the cover of Playboy, modeled in haute fashion shows for Jean Paul Gaultier and starred in a MAC Cosmetics campaign.
Dita Von Teese, who is bringing her show Strip, Strip Hooray to the Gramercy Theater from September 30 to October 4, is renowned for being one of the most beautiful and stylish women in the world.
