News.am Style: My grandmother was half Armenian – exclusive interview with Dita Von Teese

February 5, 2013
A dancer, a model, an actress… the queen of burlesque Dita Von Teese reveals different talents. But, this is not enough. She continues surprising everyone and making people admire her. Besides, Dita appeared to have Armenian roots, she said in an exclusive interview with NEWS.am STYLE.
It’s almost impossible to mistake the burlesque beauty Dita Von Teese for someone else—unless, of course that someone is of the Gypsy Rose Lee type. That porcelain skin, those vibrant cherry lips, the signature beauty mark, her neatly pinned curls and waves and that teeny-tiny waist and curves is undeniably all Dita Von Teese’s trademark. And, we’ll have you know, Ms. Von Teese does it all herself, from the styling to the hair and make up. Yes, you read the correctly. Her secret? “Hot rollers, brush it out and tons of hairspray!” Oh, and let us note that it took her mere minutes to do, too! And don’t even try and ask the standard, “What’s your signature shade of red?” question because you’ll be damn right let down when she tells you she doesn’t really have one.
Sometimes, my mistakes and failures in beauty have forced me to come up with new hairstyles that became standards for me, so go easy on yourself, and have fun with it.

I recently rediscovered my curling iron and have been trying to breathe new life into my hairstyle by attempting to style it a la Lauren Bacall in Dark Passage, but instead it ends up looking like a hot mess. I’d like to try to migrate away from the curling iron, to keep follicle damage down, but I haven’t been able to find rollers that work for me or a curling pattern that is easy to master. What do you think is the best method to keep my locks healthy and retain a perfect curl? Any products (like setting lotions) that I should be using? You must get hair-related questions an awful lot, hope it isn’t a bother. Thank you in advance!

Dita shared her opinion on her glamorous look and why she isn’t changing it anytime soon. Dita is stunning in person and super sweet!”
Dita Von Teese for Flaunt Magazine, behind the scenes
April 10, 2013
Dita Von Teese so seductively reminds us it is not always what’s on the outside the counts. With just a peak of a little (or a lot) of her porcelain skin, Ms. Von Teese has been credited for reviving Burlesque and putting sultry sophistication back into striptease. For Flaunt’s shoot, N4 Style Ambassador, John Blaine, embraced Ms. Von Teese’s classic beauty giving her voluminous curls with a retro glam vibe. Here’s how you can recreate Dita’s look…
STEP 1: Spray Super Comb Prep & Protect throughout hair to detangle and provide thermal protection.
STEP 2: Cocktail equal parts Blow Dry Lotion and Support Solution and apply to damp hair for a smooth, sleek blow out.
STEP 3: Once hair is dry, roller set spraying Thermal Styling Spray section-by-section prior to rolling. Once cool, release rollers and gently brush through with a paddle brush for smooth waves.
STEP 4: Spray with Mighty Hair Spray to avoid flayaways and maintain shape.

In celebration of her new lingerie collection for HSN, a few of us got to take in Dita Von Teese’s burlesque show on its opening night here in New York City. To say it was impressive would be an understatement. Also amazing? Her skin, perfect red pout, and over-the-top costumes. I caught up with Dita to get the full scoop.
On the pieces of lingerie every gal needs in her closet…
“A set of black lace lingere that fits her perfectly and is both sophisticated and sexy at the same time. Whenever I buy a good bra I always buy several different pairs of the underwear—the bikini, the brief, the string—as many options that are offered because it gives your set longer wear and then you have a wardrobe. A good, sturdy garter belt with metal clips that fits well and functions well, I buy that too. Something with a splash of color. I love black lace over a splash of color.
