Dita Von Teese is an American vedette, burlesque dancer, model, costume designer, entrepreneur, singer, and actress.

She is credited with re-popularising burlesque performance, earning the moniker "Queen of Burlesque".

Dita Von Teese grew up fascinated by the Golden Age of Cinema, pin-up imagery, and vintage lingerie. This naturally blond, mid-western girl from Michigan transformed herself into a glamour girl like those she admired. Performing striptease since 1992, she is the biggest name in burlesque in the world since Gypsy Rose Lee and is credited with bringing the art form back into the spotlight with a new sense of elegance and sophistication.

Taking audiences on a journey into fantasy and spectacle, Dita is renowned for her ornate sets and dazzling haute-couture performance costumes lavishly adorned with hundreds of thousands of Swarovski crystals. 

This “Burlesque Superheroine” (Vanity Fair) is the performer of choice at high profile events including those for designers such as Marc Jacobs, Christian Louboutin, Louis Vuitton, Chopard, and Cartier. She was the first guest star in history at the famed Crazy Horse Paris, where she has performed several sold-out runs, including “Dita’s Crazy Show” to celebrate the iconic venue’s 65th Anniversary. She was also the first guest star of Jean Paul Gaultier's Fashion Freak Show at Folies Bergère.

Dita also brought burlesque to prime time television in the States when she appeared as a guest star on CSI and performed her classic trademarked Martini Glass act in one of their highest rated episodes of all time, and was billed as “too hot to handle.”

In addition to her burlesque shows, Dita is a self-styled fashion icon, topping best-dressed lists all over the world. Featured on Vanity Fair’s International Best Dressed List twice, Dita has expanded into her own distinctive brands. Her lingerie collection debuted exclusively with Bloomingdale’s in the U.S. in March 2014, and has expanded to other popular retailers such as Nordstrom, barenecessities.com, FigLeaves, glamuse.com, David Jones, and Myer. She has a luxury gloves collection, a signature hosiery line, and recently launched the world’s first-ever striptease candle and her new fragrance Scandalwood.

Her New York Times Bestselling book, "Your Beauty Mark: The Ultimate Guide to Eccentric Glamour” (Dey Street Books/Harper Collins) is printed in several languages and is requisite reading for pin-up, burlesque and and fashion fans across the globe. Her next book, Fashioning the Femme Totale, lands in stores in 2020.

She served as the global ambassador for Cointreau from 2007-2013 and in 2010-2011, she was also the face of Perrier for an exclusive set of limited edition bottles. An advocate in the fight against HIV and Aids, Dita was the MAC Viva Glam Spokesperson from 2006-2008 and in 2009 she participated in the H&M/Fashion Against Aids t-shirt campaign. She has also performed and appeared at several events for Amfar and was honored with their Award of Courage in 2008. Her status as a burlesque star and modern-day feminist has also garnered her an invitation to speak at the Oxford Student Union, where other elected speakers have included the Dalai Lama, Mother Teresa, Tony Blair, and Anna Wintour.

Dita has collaborated on several music projects, including songs with Monarchy, Die Antwoord and most recently, a full album composed by French artist Sebastien Tellier.

Dita’s three full-length revues, “Burlesque: Strip, Strip, Hooray!”, “The Art of the Teese” and “Dita Von Teese and the Copper Coupe” are the biggest touring burlesque shows in history and regularly play to sold-out crowds around the world.
