#quotes  #dita von teese 
"What, to you, epitomizes femininity?
I love a womanly femininity, a grown up glamour and women that are proud to be women and not trying to recapture their youth. They’re living in the moment, being confident and just enjoying being a female. Young women who are embracing grown up glamour excite me. I think it can be difficult when you’re living in an ageist society being told ‘you should look younger, you should look younger’, that youth is everything. It’s amazing to see young women [in that context] reveling in wanting to be grown women: no pigtails, no bobby socks. Let’s be women, wear womanly things and be proud of our shapes."

You’ve said in the past that you find it hard to relate to the modern idea of beauty – for example, what you might see on the cover of Sports Illustrated – how do you maintain a sense of authenticity in a world that rewards a different beauty ideal?
I think it’s important for us to remember that there is no true standard of beauty, apart from the little things that make us healthy. There are certain hallmarks of beauty that we know to be true, but I’m really interested in the kinds that make us different from each other – I really like to embrace and encourage that.

My beauty and glamour idols are usually of the created kin. That’s one of the reasons I love old Hollywood and I love that whole era, because it wasn’t about natural beauty, it was about the creation of beauty and the art of creating glamour. That’s what I preach because I can relate to it and understand it. It’s always given me hope that I could do it too.

When I see someone who’s naturally perfect in every single way, with no makeup and no styling or anything - like the images I see on a Sports Illustrated swim suit cover or when I look at a supermodel – I know I can’t create that. That’s one of the reason I wear red lipstick. I love glamour, I love creating mystique: it’s something really exciting I think any woman achieve.

This is what I love about Dita Von Teese

dita. von.teese. how many other posts have there been, on tumblr alone that extol her virtues? Now jsut to be clear, I’m not talking about her career. lying naked in a giant martini glass is not my idea of well, classy, awesome etc. :l yet I can’t deny this woman is an EXCELLENT dress, a true style icon. I tried explaining this to some people who where unaware of who she is (??? I know) and yes, the conversation did get awkward when I mentioned she worked in the burlesque industry. (terminology?) but seriously, whenever she does put on clothes, it’s not just fashionable rubbish like so many others. she obviously puts time and effort and care into what she wears. and, surprisingly enough, she looks classy. most of the time (granted there are exceptions) it’s not jsut cheap flesh, but a really well dressed  body. observe-


so kudos dita, I can admire your dress sense :)
