The ’50s had Marilyn Monroe. A few women since have come close to epitomizing her glamor, but none really truly reached her status. Then, came Dita Von Teese.
For those of you who don’t know who she is, maybe you are like our mother who asked, “Wait, that girl who was married to Marilyn Manson?” But you also might know she takes her clothes off for a living as a world famous burlesque dancer. But don’t call her a stripper. Well, if you do, she actually doesn’t mind.
Hours before her “My Cointreau Travel Essentials” party at the Mondrian South Beach for the spirit’s US launch of her new to-go mini bar, we got the chance to sit down with Von Teese. And in what seemed like five minutes, we talked marriage, Miami, and being the burlesque maven she is today.
