Dita Von Teese is a woman who clearly knows what she likes. She's perfected her signature vintage look for over 20 years, so when it came to developing her own fragrances, dubbed Dita Von Teese ($49) and Rouge, Dita knew exactly what she wanted. "I believe perfume is a vital stepping stone to glamour, so I wanted to create a perfume that has a high level of sophistication and is a kind of perfume that maybe one of my idols like Rita Hayworth or Marlene Dietrich would have worn," she says. Her namesake fragrance and Von Follies lingerie is available at Target now, and the 40-year-old burlesque star tells us everything from her skincare secrets to looking good in lingerie.
"When somebody says, 'I don't think she's pretty,' I look at them and think, 'Wow, I never noticed how ugly you were before.'" Dita Von Teese doesn't judge anyone's style or beauty and doesn't think you should, either. At the US launch for her two fragrances (Dita Von Teese and Rouge) in LA over the weekend, Dita dished on how she gained the confidence to become who she is today. Not only that, but Dita, who used to be a blonde, revealed her surprising secret to attaining clear skin. See the full interview in today's Beauty Beat.
