Dita von Teese

Dita Von Teese“admires” people who spend “grandiose amounts” on their style.

The burlesque star is famed for her ever-glamorous appearance, and regularly wows in show-stopping attire.

Elizabeth Taylor’s diamonds were recently auctioned, but Dita admits she wasn’t tempted to bid on such prestigious items.

“I knew that I wasn’t going to have that kind of buying power but I do admire people who do spend grandiose amounts of money on beauty and glamor,” she told the UK edition of OK! magazine.

“I have key pieces of jewelry that I really love but it’s nowhere on that level.”

Dita is famed for her vintage aesthetic, and is a renowned lover of all things elegant. The raven haired beauty loves sharing her beauty techniques.

“I’m usually asked about wearing red lipstick – how to find the right color, how to apply it properly, how to make it last,” she explained.

“I’m a make-up junkie and right now I’m in the process of making my own line of cosmetics with a company called ArtDeco. It’s been real fun to be able to look inside my make-up kit and think up ways to make them even better for me.”
