“Zou Bisou Bisou” played over the pool surrounded by orange lanterns at dusk on Wednesday celebrating the first of many Cointreau pool parties this summer 2012. A live performance by Dita Von Teese launched the series following an opening act by the Aqualillies who begin their two month residency at the hotel on Fridays (July 13th – August 25th).
Dita wore Jenny Packham to the event before changing into her tear-away costume — also made by Jenny Packham – and performing around 9pm to a crowd of her friends, and friends of Cointreau, and the Beverly Hills Hotel. The Aquallies performed around 8pm and did synchornized swim and dance acts to three songs.

Guests walked the orange carpet to enter Cointreau’s Summer Bar Cart Series poolside soiree last night at Ku De Ta, the member-only swimming pool and bar behind Three Sheets. Dita Von Teese, Queen of Burlesque and global brand ambassador for Cointreau, brought her ‘40s and ‘50s glam to everything from the retro-style swimsuits worn by the synchronized swimming entertainment, the Aqualillies, to the bar cart design.

Burlesque Goddess Dita Von Teese: “I Really Don’t Get Hit On”

Fri., Jun. 8 2012
Dita Von Teese cannot be confined to one avenue of employment, while she’s known primarily for bringing back — and glamming up — the arena of burlesque as a whole, she’s also a fetish model, author, actress, creator of a German make-up line, and for the last several years, the cocktail-shaking spokeswoman for Cointreau. We caught up with her at a private party for the company where Dita held court in a poolside cabana. Below her, L.A.’s newest synchronized swim team, the Aqualillies, performed.
Dita doesn’t intend to get wet, it would be detrimental to the fabric of the gossamer-thin, 1930′s bias-cut sheer dress she’s chosen for the evening. It’s a poppy, floral print, accented at the tips of her shoulders by indigo velvet spaghetti straps which are tied into perfect bows. She’s shy, and smiles sweetly without fully raising her eyes. Instead, she tilts her head forward bashfully, revealing a perfect 1940′s tube of jet black hair. She is Dita Von Teese, the most glamorous lady in the world.
