Strip! Strip! Hooray! Reviewed – Charlotte, North Carolina (October, 2013)

Strip Strip Hooray. Who knew that those three little words chosen from a vintage magazine could be so classy, extravagant, and glitzy! I had the pleasure of attending Dita’s Charlotte Burlesque 90 minute Revue show on closing night 12 October 2013. I live in Georgia, so I trekked 3 ½ hours for Ms. Von Teese. I would do it again in a heartbeat if I had to.
“Joy and living a good life on your own terms is always sexy,” Dita tells us.
With her glamorously sexy looks, risqué burlesque shows, and lingerie and fragrance lines, Dita Von Teese is the epitome of erotica, so it’s no wonder she named her fourth and latest fragrance Erotique. “I was inspired by the erotic stories that I love to read, and the kind of fragrance the characters that I read about would have worn,” she says. “Perfume was very different in the past; it was very carnal, very animalistic. This fragrance has Bulgarian rose, coriander, patchouli, and leather. I love the idea of a perfume that smells like a gloved hand holding a bouquet of roses.”
She had more to say about the power of scent, as well as answers to your most burning questions, when we recently spoke with Dita at the launch party for her fragrance at Ron Robinson/Fred Segal in Los Angeles.
MyDaily.co.uk: Dita Von Teese Does Dramatic Black For Phantom Of The Opera

Dita Von Teese is all about performance and it’s no surprise that the 41-year-old looked stunning for last night’s premiere of Phantom of the Opera at the Neue Flora in Hamburg, Germany.
Dita posed in a black velvet gown with sheer and black applique lace detailing on the back. The subtle train teamed with long black leather gloves created a striking, stunning silhouette.
The best thing about Dita is that she sticks to what she’s good at – her signature black style is always sultry and seriously sexy-making.
The Twenties hair (jet black with tight retro curls), the porcelain complexion, that beauty spot and the killer lipstick also adds definition. The lady is just smouldering.
