Dita Watch

Everybody's favourite stripper burlesque artist, has been very busy since last time I posted about her outfits in July 2011.  She even managed to squeeze in a trip to Australia!


  Let's see what she's been wearing...


Dita at LAX International Airport on 8 July.  As usual, Dita keeps it simple at the airport with a stunning black bead-trimmed coat.


Her bag is a Goyard Saigon, personalised with her initials, DVT.  For those of us plebs who don't keep up with luxury brands, Goyard is a French luggage manufacturer, established in 1853.  Their symbol is the Goyard chevron, seen here on the canvas of the Saigon bag.


Dita is an ambassador for Cointreau, and they've even named another cocktail after her, the Cointreau MargaDita.  She was in Dallas, Texas at the Rosewood Mansion to celebrate the launch of the drink, wearing a stunning vintage dress, paired with a Louboutin feathered clutch.


 Cointreau MargaDita Recipe

1oz Cointreau
1oz Silver Tequila
1oz fresh lime juice
bar spoon (0.5oz) Monin Rose Syrup
1 pinch Chipotle spice (optional)

Mix all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice.  Shake vigorously and pour into a chilled coup glass.  Garnish with yellow rose petals.  For added kick, add a pinch of  Chipotle, and salt rim.


In August, Dita went to lunch with a friend, wearing a 50s-style floral print dress with a square neck and wrap-style skirt.  Interesting lime-green shoes too.


 The next day, she was snapped leaving a pilates class.  She is wearing a wonderful vintage circle skirt that I have seen before a few times on the internet!  It has a print of a letter, and inkwell with a quill feather, and some roses, which is repeated around the skirt.


Here is the skirt in a different colourway - pale pink and brown.


And a photo from Flickr of the exact same skirt, here worn by Denisebrain.  I soooo want one!!


On 8 September she wore an Elie Saab cocktail dress to the premier of God Save My Shoes in New York, which has a rather  1940s look to it, but without the dramatic shoulder pads.


She is holding a Lulu Guiness 'Lips' clutch, and wearing Louboutins (when is she not?).


Leaving a pilates class.  God I love the way she still manages to look polished even after exercising!


Out and about in LA with a friend, Dita wore a summery Maxime Simoens Spring 2011 dress and paired it with nude pumps.


Dita's bag is a Dolce & Gabbana Miss Sicily, but I can't seem to find the exact model.  You can see in the picture that it has lace detail and a clear panel, but on the flap, not the body of the bag.  This is the closest one to it.


Wearing Elie Saab again at the L'Officiel magazine's 90th anniversary celebration at Maxim's in Paris.


In October, Dita was photographed at Paris Fashion Week, attending the Alexis Mabille show, wearing (of course) Alexis Mabille.  This striped satin dress is from the Spring 2011 Ready to Wear collection. 


I think I like it better on the flat-chested model, I think Dita's maybe a little too busty for this kind of babydoll look, but the stripes look lovely on her.


Next up, Dita jetted off to Madrid to launch the Cointreau Mini Bar.


I adore the shoes she is wearing - the're Louboutins of course - but look at the backs.  Those shoes are at least a size too big for her.  How she walks in them I don't know.

The mini bar Dita was launching, is actually known as My Cointreau Travel Essentials.  The coffret (that's French for 'casket'), consists of a white leather, hatbox-style box that opens up to reveal a glossy gold interior.

The set includes a limited edition bottle of Cointrea, a silver shaker, a jigger, bar spoon, two glasses, a Cointreau perfume atomiser, and a leather-bound notebook for jotting down innovative recipes.  The whole thing retails for $399.  Now you can have cocktails wherever you are!


Dita at Radio Deejay studios in Milan.



Launching My Cointreau Travel Essentials in Milan, wearing a Herve L Leroux gown.  It's a bit bandage-like for my tastes, but her hair looks fantastic.


The earrings are vintage Schreiner. The Schreiner jewellery company was started by German immigrant Henry Schreiner, who began designing jewelled shoe buckles in the 1920s. Although he died in 1954, his daughter and her husband continued to design costume jewellery under the family name up until 1975.  The work was always hand-done and never mass produced, and the large, showy pieces are collectors items today.


Launching her perfume at Soho House in Berlin.

Official picture for the perfume.
"The self titled perfume opens with a head note composed of fresh peonies, bergamot, and slightly spicy Bourbon pepper. The heart of the perfume is a combination of Bulgarian rose, Tahitian Tiaré petals, and fresh jasmine. And in the base note, the mystical and warm scents of patchouli, musk, and smoky Gaiac wood and sandalwood."
Here's a picture of the bottle, very Art Deco.


At the Cointreauversial Cocktail Party in Singapore, wearing a Roland Mouret dress.


Dita wore this Gaultier dress twice in one week (shock horror!), once to the opening of the Gaultier exhibit in Dallas, and then three days later to the Museum of Contemporary Art Gala. 


 Here is the original dress from Gaultier's 2002 Couture collection.



This image from Dita's book Burlesque and the Art of the Teese/Fetish and the Art of the Teese.  She said that this is one of her favourite dresses, which she actually owns, and "when a dress costs as much as a Mercedes, you want to wear it more than once."


Heading to the Pantages Theatre to see the Cure.  I like how she's matched her black lace gloves with black lace shoes!


At the launch of the Cointreau Prive pop-up bar at The Pigalle Club in London.



The very glamorous dress is by Tadashi Shoji from his Spring 2012 RTW collection.


 On her way to the Playboy Club Christmas Party in London.  I like how this dress has a very pale pink satin slip under the black lace.


Out and about in Paris just before Christmas.  What a cunning little hat!


I couldn't resist leaving you with this picture, tweeted by Miss Von Teese herself, of her wearing a glorious turn-of-the-century silk velvet dressing gown.
