Dita Von Teese's Beauty Secrets

Dita von Teese is the ultimate in pin up girl beauty: flawless, milky white skin, perfectly tonged hair — and have you seen that body?! When PEOPLE caught up with her at a MAC Viva Glam event in London this week, we wanted to know all of her beauty secrets. “I do yoga and pilates” she revealed as her tiny frame wafted past in a silver mermaid-esque Dior gown. “I also do my best to get my beauty sleep which means knowing when the party is over!” And, how does she maintain that perfectly porcelain skin? “Sunscreen is very important but there isn’t one miracle cream, we’re all different.” After performing in a pink Swarovski crystal cow girl outfit (which off course was quickly removed) complete with crystal covered Christian Louboutin boots to perform her risqué burlesque style strip tease, she switched back her glamorous gown and went clubbing with her girlfriends, dutifully leaving at 1:30 am, with a sneaky yawn on the way out. At least she practices what she preaches.

don’t like her… she’s isn’t that beaustiful and her body is just ok, and nothing more… but i must admit that she has great skin :)

She is one of a kind with just enough touch of the 1950’s Hollywood Glamour, she kinda remimds me of Elizabeth Taylor!

Rose on

I love, love her. She’s a modern day Bettie Page.

Dita is SO beautiful!

Beauty secret step 1: plastic surgery
step 2: more plastic surgery
step 3: dye, dye, dye, wax, wax wax
step 3: show your bare boobs
step 4: only work in places where the lighting is really, really dim, and only take pictures that are photoshopped
step 5: wear lots of the darkest, cakiest makeup possible

Now you look absolutely nothing like the way you were born, or like a normal healthy female, for that matter. What a great formula! I’ll take the secret of exercise, smiling, being natural, and getting outside instead.

From first-hand experience, she’s pretty full of herself and snooty. No personality outside of her performing self. Very self-aware. How much more high-maintenance can you get than this girl? Yuck…I’d hate to see what all the years of those corsets set to 18 inches or whatever are doing to her internal organs!

I don’t think she’s beautiful, I think she lookd\s kind of like a cartoon. Or like a member of the Munster family.

Well, can you be a pin up beauty if you don’t have milky white skin? Wow.

anonymous on

i love her style.

hehe on

Kids, if you don’t get her style, then don’t comment.
Everyone has a different style. Some like to dress trashy, others classy and some don’t like to wear anything. ;)

Lauren on

Yay! Let’s glorify strippers! Ooooh, she’s so awesome and beautiful. She takes her clothes off for money. I want to be just like her! GROSS.

Lucia on

i am sorry dont get her style that much cuz her style is like all over the place and i dont care for it that much… and her dark her makes her kin look sooooooo pal…she looks like she is sick or somethin

I would like to know what is the ideal beauty image to you guys who keep mocking her? I don’t understand why everyone should be all tanned and looking the same way? Why should everyone go with the flow and be copies of each other? I can’t really understand. And yes I do admire what she does, and I would like to do it myself if I just had the confidence and the body. Thank you good night.

Jessica on

Lauren, you are an idiot. Do you even know what burlesque means? look it up on google.

Lucia, from what I’m getting from your comment and the way you type, you seem pretty ignorant too. how old are you? 12?

I agree with Mona.

anyway, burlesque dancers they are way different from strippers at strip clubs. now Dita here is a performing artist and knows how to do nudity in an artful and tasteful manner. the fact that she is sporting the classic 40’s/50’s beauty makes her a porcelain, statuesque goddess!

She is all-around classic beauty and really is a modern day Bettie Page.

I once saw pictures of her with Pamela Anderson at a restaurant, and compared to Pam’s orange crackly skin, fake boobes and plastic face, Dita stands out as classic next to some trashy Barbie girl.

I think she should ditch the heavy makeup and try a more natural look.The heavy makeup makes her look years older.

Dita is the most beautiful woman that I´ve ever seen and I´m telling it because I had the honour to meet her in Ibiza, after a performing of hers. Pure porcelain beauty!..and I can assure you that very few women, even after all that make up can look so good. She is 35 and her skin looks amazingly fresh, not at all like a tipically Plastic 21st century beauty.

You don’t get her style? It’s called old hollywood glamour. The women of the 30’s-50’s were so beautiful, they embraced being a women. They had curves to die for, curls done up just right, and lets not forget those dreamy cat eyes of the 50’s the bold eyebrows are the luscious red lips. It was a magical time in fashion that few people embrace. Dita embraces this, she lives it. And I admire that about her. She looks like a women. The style of girls today just seems to be getting worse and worse. And another thing, before you mock her about being a burlesque dancer (or stripper, seeing that it is a form of stripping) then watch a video of her doing it first. It’s so tasteful and fun. It makes all of us girls want to put on a show for our guys. It’s empowering and is a way that any woman can embrace her body, use her curves, and feel sexy and beautiful.
