When it comes to any sort of a classic beauty, one would quickly think of a retro styled pin up model. Dita Von Teese is well known for her unique style and her love for 1940s cinema as well as the starlet, retro style. This love for classic beauty was adopted at a very young age and nurtured by her mother who is known for buying her daughter all sorts of incredible clothing for her little girl to dress up in. This golden age Hollywood film era is where Dita draws her inspiration from and uses it throughout her modeling and shows today.

Not only does Dita Von Teese have an affinity for classic, retro style but she is also known to have a love for the art of dance. At a young age, she was trained in classical ballet and even had solo performances as early as age 13. This dance training can be seen today when she performs her numerous burlesque shows, which happen to sell out at each venue that she is booked. This love for dance as well as classic performance is what makes Dita such a unique beauty and incredible performer to behold.

Throughout the years, Dita Von Teese grew quite a fondness for the world of dressing up and lingerie, which led to her immense passion for frilly undergarments. From fashionable stockings to lace trimmed corsets and accessories, Von Teese is well known for being the poster girl for all that is glamorous about the retro pin up style. Not only does she star in the photo shoots, but she will often design all of the costumes and fully design the shoots herself. If you ever have a chance to see Dita Von Teese perform, you are going to be very glad that you did.
