Time Out: Dita Von Teese’s favourite things of 2011

Time Out: Dita Von Teese’s favourite things of 2011
December 28, 2011

As the year comes to an end, we asked Dita to select a few of her highlights of the past 12 months, from music and fashion to beloved kitchen appliances…

Christian Louboutin’s new book, ‘Christian Louboutin’
A massive book filled with beautiful images illustrating Christian’s personal and professional history with never before published photos, it’s a great gift for any glamour girl.

Amy Winehouse’s album ‘Lioness’
It hasn’t been released yet but Amy was my favourite modern singer and I love the one track that has been released.

Monarchy’s album ‘Around The Sun’
Monarchy is one of my favourite bands and I really love this album. I listen to it a lot while I’m getting ready for my show or driving in my car. Monarchy is also playing a DJ set at the opening of my speakeasy, so I’m really excited about that.

My blender
It may not seem very glamorous but a super-powered blender is amazing for making healthy green smoothies and soups. I have a cult of friends that have all become as obsessed as I am and we share recipes. It’s an important part of my beauty regime to drink lots of healthy greens.

My diamond-back signature seamed stockings
My signature stockings are made on the same machines as they were in the 1940s, with all the details that make a true couture stocking. My fully-fashioned diamond back seams are so elegant and unique, I get compliments on them all the time. (Dita’s stockings are available at teese.us/stockings)
