Burlesque queen and lingerie model Dita Von Teese has been a busy girl in front of the camera just recently, promoting both her new perfume ‘Erotique’ and the latest collection from her vintage Von Follies Underwear range.

Heather Renée Sweet was born on September 28, 1972 in Rochester, Michigan, her innate fascination with the Golden Age of Cinema, sexy pin-up imagery and vintage burlesque corsets, ensured that she would follow in the footsteps of the classic glamour girls she so adored and transform herself into Dita Von Teese, the modern day queen of burlesque, lingerie model extraordinaire and self styled fashion icon.

The stunning forty one year old’s latest publicity shots are a joy to behold and prove that no one can pull off that classic retro look better than Dita Von Teese, the undisputed star of vintage erotic glamour.

There was only one lingerie model who could bring that little bit of retro chic to the promotional  material for Dita Von Teese’s new fragrance ‘Erotique’ and that was Dita Von Teese herself.

The stunning former squeeze of shock rocker Marilyn Manson, turned back the clock as she posed and pouted provocatively in a setting that resembled an old fashioned, luxury hotel room, her modesty protected by just a bouquet of vibrant pink roses.

Dita says …

“My obsession with lingerie, began at a very young age, I remember sneaking in to my mothers underwear drawer and trying on the lingerie, fantasising about when I would be old enough to wear those sort of things.

One of my favourite pieces in the collection, is the Matamax bra, it’s inspired by some illustrations that I have from a vintage catalogue of quite racy bra’s, from Paris.

One of the things that I love about the 1930’s, 40’s and 50’s, is that there was a really genuine sense of artistry in everyday things.

I believe that every woman should have a really great set of lingerie, especially in black, it’s not about what you are wearing for someone, it’s not about buying something sexy for your boyfriend or husband, it’s really just reclaiming your pedestal and flourishing as a woman and enjoying all of the rituals that we have of being a woman, that’s just something that ever since being a little girl I always wanted to do, I wanted to be a woman and so I would take every opportunity I had, to indulge in things I thought were feminine and womanly”.
