Today I want to write about the wonderful Dita Von Teese. Dita is the modern day Marilyn Monroe, showing off her curves and femininity in a way that is unique in today's society.
The vintage hair and make up is her signature look that we all love and admire. She always does her own make up and today I want to write about a few key pieces that can help you to achieve her classic, elegant and glamorous look in a few steps.
In an interview with Style.com Dita herself said: “I’ve always felt that creating glamour is an art form and it’s different from God-given beauty." In her book called Your Beauty Mark she shares her beauty secrets in order to help show the world that a glamorous look can be achieved by anyone.
According to Dita, every woman should own a pot of organic coconut oil, as it helps you to take off your make up in no time. It can also be used for shaving and it is a great alternative to other products that contain harmful chemicals.
If you want to archive Dita's signature matte lipstick look, you are in for a treat, as she has filmed a video with Marie Claire in which she shows us how she is applying her red lip.
To complete your Dita Von Teese look, you will of course need a cute vintage inspired outfit. Below I have gathered a few outfits that I think would fit into this whole vintage inspired, feminine and elegant theme. So the next time you go shopping, look out for a few key pieces that you can combine with the things you already own, in order to make you feel glamorous and elegant every day. Don't forget to give your nails a Dita Von Teese signature manicure, red lipstick and a pair of cat eye sunglasses.
Who is your favourite style icon?
Sometimes you confuse your needs. You don’t need a boyfriend.
You need a black dress, white pearls and red lipstick.
& a drink.
