Dita Von Teese has been in the spotlight for being a neo-burlesque queen and associated with the tattoo industry, yet she has only one tattoo herself - a tiny black beauty mark on her left cheek. When she was a shy young girl growing up in a small town in Michigan, Dita found her identity in wearing vintage clothing and hats - so developing her own lingerie line inspired by retro glamour has been a labor of love. Her inspirations were the pin-up queens of the 1930's, '40's and 50's, including Betty Grable, Rita Hayworth, Marlene Dietrich, Bettie Page and Marilyn Monroe. Working in a lingerie shop in her teens also gave Dita a taste for beautiful underpinnings in vintage-inspired styles, which have become her trademark look. This love of beauty extends to her private life, as she much prefers cashmere robes to the standard lounge sweatpants. Dita Von Teese feels that the retro look is classic, and frames the body beautifully. She gets inspiration from genuine vintage lingerie pieces as well as men's magazines from the 1930's and 40's, although her own collections utilize modern construction techniques for function and wearability.
One of Dita Von Teese's trademark items is the garter belt with six garters instead of the usual four, with two each at the front, side seams and back. And the bras include full figure sizes to cater to vintage-loving, voluptuous women everywhere.
Her many talents extend to acting, with a role in a 2011 "CSI: Crime Scene Investigations" episode, in which she played Rita von Squeeze, a campy "film noire" version of herself.
