Stylish burlesque dancer Dita Von Teese would never leave the house without looking her best because she doesn't know who she'll bump into.
Dita Von Teese would never leave the house without looking her best.
The burlesque dancer - who is famed for her well-groomed look - says she feels better about herself when she's made an effort and thinks it's important to always look good.
She said: ''That (dressed down) look never worked for me. Any time I feel like being lazy, I think: 'The day I don't dress up, that's when I'll run into my ex-boyfriend - or worse, his new girlfriend. I feel better about myself when I look my best. I always find the time to put on my powder and do my chignon.''
Dita recently launched her debut dress collection - which comprises feminine retro-inspired dresses -and she says she got the inspiration from going to vintage stores.
She told vogue.co.uk: ''I saw a very famous designer, who shall remain unnamed, in a vintage boutique in LA. He was there with his whole team and they were taking pictures for pieces to inspire his next collection. I just thought to myself: 'There's no reason why I couldn't do that.' Vintage stores are where I buy all my clothes - I love the thrill of the hunt.''
