Capitol Icon: Dita Von Teese

The Va-va-voom vixen talks about her latest style addictions.

 

Fashion philosophy:Trying to be ‘of the moment’ isn’t chic. Anyone can buy clothes. Beautifully maintaining a signature style is the ultimate achievement.”

Go-to outfit:My Second Look dress for endless reasons: it showcases jewelry so well, can be dressed up or down according to the accessories, and reveals the silhouette without being too revealing. Oh and it travels beautifully too.”  

Favorite high drama accessory:  “Can I choose two? Black leather opera-length gloves and my Von Follies Madame X bra.”

Soundtrack for getting dressed up:I love a soundtrack for bathing, doing my makeup and certainly dressing for the evening. Among my standout favorites are Aquellos Ojos Verdes by Nat King Cole because it’s so glamorous, Teach Me Tonight by Jo Stafford because it’s so sexy, and 36-22-36 by Bobby Blue Bland for being so inspiring.”

Growing up, I wore the hell out of:My special occasion dresses. I hated my casual school clothes and wanted to wear my dressy clothes. I couldn’t understand why I had to save them for special events. It was a constant argument with my parents.”

Sunglasses du jour:I have an entire wardrobe of sunglasses. But I’m particularly fond right now of my round black and white tortoise with ombré lenses and a gold wire temple by Miu Miu.”

Current edible obsession:  “Organic avocado on toasted millet bread with smoked sea salt.”

Home remedy for a Champagne hangover:Every other glass is water. I never have hangovers!”
