Happy 42nd birthday, Dita Von Teese! The pin-up queen has had a busy year building her rhinestone-encrusted empire, which now includes four seductive perfumes, her Von Follies line of ravishing lingerie and an it’s-raining-glitter burlesque show, Strip Strip Hooray.
We caught up with the burlesque bombshell at a New York City event for her newly launched line of maternity lingerie with Destination Maternity—it includes a design as mythical as a unicorn: a glamorous nursing bra!
Read on to see how Dita’s spending her birthday, where she gets her design inspiration, and who was waiting for her back at her hotel.

Last week, on Tuesday September 23, the Destination Maternity Flagship Store got the retro-glam treatment as burlesque maven, fashion designer, and beauty icon Dita Von Teese stopped by to celebrate the launch of the Von Follies by Dita Von Teese for Destination Maternity capsule lingerie collection.
The seven-piece collection (which costs approximately $39-55)—which features limited edition bras and panties made just for new and expectant moms—is an extension of Dita’s popular Von Follies line. The look is fierce and feminine with retro touches. The regular “combines retro glamour with flirtatious touches” in Dita’s signature ‘50s pinup style—and the new maternity collection is no different. Styles in the capsule collection are crafted with soft stretch satin and beautiful lace and ribbon details, and includes bras with and without underwire, detachable cups for breast feeding, and a clip-down feature; all panties are designed with a subtle control panel.
Here are some untagged, high resolution photos from the Destination Maternity event.

Burlesque bombshell Dita Von Teese may be having a change of heart when it comes to motherhood. Previously, the 41-year-old said of having children, “Maybe it’s in the cards for me or maybe it isn’t, but it doesn’t diminish me as a human being if it’s not.” The provocateur is now reconsidering her ambivalence. “It’s definitely been something that’s on my mind,” she tells ELLE.com. “It’s one of the things that came up in my life; I’ve been thinking about it a lot about since I created this line.”
