Dita Von Teese Takes a PEOPLE Camera to Cannes!
THE SUITE LIFE
"Here we are at the Carlton Hotel, right in the middle of the action at Cannes on La Croisette," says Dita Von Teese. "I was doing interviews all day at a beachfront restaurant for MAC with MAC president John Demsey, with occasional breaks to look out at the glamorous scene happening [outside]."
Von Teese tells PEOPLE: "This is a great shot [of me] arriving at the Ocean's Thirteen premiere [and] posing for the fans' cameras before walking the massive red carpet."
GUNNIN' FOR GLAMOUR
"I'm about to go onstage at the amfAR event. I am one of MAC Viva Glam's spokeswomen, and I created a burlesque show [during which] I ride a 9-ft. long bucking and spinning mechanical lipstick. So, naturally, I am dressed as a '50s era rhinestone cowgirl."
Von Teese tells PEOPLE she doesn't worry about not having the right dress with her "because I bring a lot of choices – and a lot of my own clothes."
"I'm with the MAC team at the amfAR event. We're standing in front of the massive Swarovski crystal curtain that raised up to reveal me and my giant Viva Glam lipstick."
"I'm with Jean Paul Gaultier [at the amfAR event]. I'm a big fan of his, and I even walked the runway at his last Paris couture show. He's seen many of my burlesque shows, and he told me that he especially loved the one I did tonight. He adores kitsch as much as I do!"
