Dita Von Teese, née Heather Sweet, is a native of West Branch, Michigan, where a traditional Midwestern upbringing cultivated in her a longing for the mid-century Golden Age of Hollywood glamour. Since she launched her career as the globe’s most prominent modern burlesque performer, she has become an international multimedia superstar, beloved for her dazzling performances, and topping best-dressed lists for her distinct retro-style glamour.
Von Teese has expanded into several brands under her own name, including fragrance, lingerie, clothing and cosmetics; she has also served as global ambassador for Cointreau since 2007, and is currently working on her third book, “A Guide to Beauty and Glamour.” In addition, Von Teese has raised awareness in the fight against HIV/AIDS through her work as a MAC Viva Glam spokesperson, as well as her involvement with amfAR.
A fashion icon and the most famous name in burlesque since Gypsy Rose Lee, this sultry performer has been dubbed a “burlesque superheroine” by Vanity Fair. Her full-length revue “Burlesque: Strip Strip Hooray!” offers some of her most renowned acts—like her famous Martini Glass Show, in which she bathes herself in a martini glass complete with an olive-shaped sponge, and her most opulent show yet, The Opium Den.
Raves the Los Angeles Times, “Her attention to detail and embellished glitz onstage is unparalleled, even for pop stars. From the sparkle of each and every Swarovski crystal… to the sensual lighting that caresses her slender porcelain frame to the vampy music that sets the mood for the procession of themed vignettes—your eye cannot turn away from the utter flawlessness of it all.”
After all, sometimes the sexiest sirens aren’t the ladies who put it all out there, but those who know how to show off just enough to leave audiences panting for more.
