On October 17th, a Salvatore Ferragamo sponsored gala for the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts saw a roster of stars attend. The January issue of Town & Country has released an exclusive set of portraits from the event.
Dita by Perou
This photoshoot was commissioned for Flaunt magazine. The September, 2003 issue, I think… my copy is in storage. It’s the one Dita mentioned in My Friend Jean Paul Gaultier, by Dita Von Teese for The Daily Beast.
All shots are in high resolution, except for the last two. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find better quality versions. Dita.net probably has them.
“The Brooklyn exhibit will have things like, for example, Dita Von Teese, because I think she’s fantastic. The first time I saw her, I was a fan and I am still a fan of [her ex] Marilyn Manson, and I went to see him because we are supposed to do something for our show, and she was with him, and I said, “My God.” She is more Parisian than the Parisians. She was, oh, perfect. And hair — black, black, black, black, black — porcelain, lipstick, perfect. The makeup: perfect. Everything. In attire, chic. Super black, black, black, black. I’m like, “[Am I] dreaming, or what?””
