Dita Von Teese is a beauty. Her raven black hair, rose red lips and beauty mark Dita Von Teese is every inch the 1940’s movie star.

A bona fide fashion icon, renown the world over for her intrinsic sense of beauty and style, Dita is an advocate for glamour being accessible to all women and her collections capture this spirit while being functional for moments of everyday beauty and luxury.

Born Heather Sweet in Rochester, Michigan, Dita grew up in West Branch, Michigan, and was fascinated by the Golden Age of Cinema. This naturally blond, mid- western girl transformed herself into a glamour girl like those she admired.
