Dita Von Teese….Whether she’s dazzling audiences while swirling in a towering martini glass or sparking camera flashes on the red carpet, one reality is constant: for this “Burlesque Queen” and self-styled star, beauty is an art.
“I’ve always felt that creating glamour is an art form and it’s different from God-given beauty,” Dita said in an interview with Style.com. “It’s a little bit like someone putting on their drag. We all have this opportunity to style ourselves the way we want to be seen, and sometimes it’s vastly different from what we’re born with.”
