Dita Von Teese once sacked a stylist after she recommended the burlesque star wore jeans.
Von Teese - married to rocker Marilyn Manson - is famous for her breathtakingly tight corsets, glamorous gowns and sequined bikinis, so she was stunned by the suggestion she slip into denim.
She says, "I always do my own make-up for my shows, especially after an unfortunate incident a few years ago when I misguidedly hired a stylist/make-up person. She picked out a pair of 1940s shoes and actually said that they'd go really well with a pair of jeans.
"I had to tell her she was no longer required."
