Dita Von Teese in West Hollywood

Posted on August 26, 2011

We’ve encountered our fair share of celebrities walking about in various cities and we’ve never been the types to overreact or make a fuss, even when it’s someone we like. We once saw Sarah Jessica Parker at the height of her Sex and the City series fame pushing a stroller through the West Village and even when she nodded and said “Hello,” as she passed us (the lady knows her fanbase and probably spent a good chunk of her time in those days nodding at passing gay men) we were cool about it (but secretly thrilled).

But we have to say, if we were walking down the street and Miss Dita was coming towards us looking like this:

We would almost certainly either burst into spontaneous applause or spontaneous tears of joy.

The thing that has always set Miss Dita apart from the average vintage-wearing gal is her theatricality and her impeccably tuned sense of how to pair vintage with modern. The result is a look that’s pretty much purely hers; a sort of drag vintage couture. She is forever selling Miss Dita as a product every time she steps out and she’s got a Joan Crawford-level of commitment to giving her fans exactly what they want to see. Very old-school Hollywood thinking. She absolutely knows what she’s doing every single time she puts a look together. We’re curious if she employs any sort of stylist to help her with that.

And just because the ladies love to talk about purses (or at least the Bitter Kitten ladies do), here are some other bags from the same line, Dolce & Gabbana fall 2011:


Miss Dita chose the exact right one for her look. Brava, girl.
