Dita Von Teese started her career as a stripper called Heather Sweet in one of Los Angeles many bikini clubs. The former blond girl from a farming town in Michigan rose to international prominence in the early 2000s, in part due to her marriage to and subsequent divorce from Marilyn Manson, but largely thanks to her Hollywood Golden-era look and burlesque routines. Last week, the 39-year old queen of burlesque was in London to launch her fragrance Dita Von Teese at Liberty London. Luxury Travel Beat caught up with her to talk to her about her extensive travels.

“I use all Globe-Trotter suitcases; they look chic and classic. Most of my burlesque costumes travel in Globe-Trotter cases that are color-matched to each outfit.” —Dita Von Teese
