Dita Von Teese Loves Her High-Maintence Beauty Routine

Much like Lady Gaga in her ever-shocking ensembles, burlesque dancer Dita Von Teese never deviates from her signature 1950s pin-up girl style. But does the star, 37, ever wish she could just get comfy in sweatpants and no makeup? “No never,” she tells British Vogue. Always accessorizing her retro-glam outfits from designer favorites like Jean Paul Gaultier and Elie Saab, are her glossy black retro waves and scarlet lips–hair and makeup that she says takes no longer than the faux au naturale look of some of her friends: “They straighten their hair, wear all that bronzer and beige lipstick and apply 50 coats…I’m doing the same thing just with different colours.” From hair to shoe, it’s a precise look, but Dita insists, “I get ready just as quick as any other woman I know.” And unlike her red carpet companions, Dita tells the publication that she does not rely on a stylist to lift her fashion spirits. Instead, she looks to avant-garde style icons like Daphne Guinness and the late Isabella Blow, whom she says she admires as “women that took risks and have their own personal style without having to pay someone to do it.” Tell us: Do you think Dita Von Teese is a style icon in the making? –Christie LaRusso
