Darling Dita 2012 - Part 1

Every now and then I like to have a look at what the lovely Miss Von Teese has been wearing lately.  Whether on the red carpet or just buying groceries, Dita always looks immaculate, and the following are outfits she wore in the first quarter of 2012 (most photos from JustJared).

Out and about in Los Angeles.  You don't often see Dita in pants, but I like the high waist on these ones.

Here she is in Los Feliz.  The bra or top she is wearing with all the tiny straps is divine, I wonder who it's by?
The bag Dita is carrying in the previous two photos is the Marc Jacobs Garbo Camille.  It has a padlock and a tiny key!

Before her performance at the Hyde Bellagio resort and casino in Las Vegas.  Notice her shoes, black with black studs?

Of course the're Louboutins, black Alti spikes.  Very punk and understated.

At launch of Swarovski's "Sing Swing and Shine" collection.  How amazing is that buckle!  I wonder if it's vintage (it looks it) or one of Swarovski's?

Leaving a nail salon in Hollywood.  That outfit looks so comfortable, maybe it's the Dita version of tracksuit pants.

The bag is a Christian Louboutin Sweet Charity Tote in pony skin leopard print from the Fall 2010 collection.

On the HARD's Holy Ship! cruise from Florida to the Bahamas, with her boyfriend Count Louis-Marie de Castelbajac.  How cute are they in their matching outfits?

At Jean Paul Gaultier Haute Couture show, Paris Fashion Week.  She seems to be wearing a lot of black this year.  I do love how Dita is so match-matchy with her lace shoes and lace gloves.  The dress has the most enormous buckle. 

Here is a closeup of her necklace (and her flawless makeup).  It looks like it's all fabric covered beads.

Finally, some colour! Dita attended Sidaction's Le Diner de la Mode 2012 at the Pavillon d'Armenonville.  Sidaction is a French charitable event which raises money for AIDS.

The dress is from Alexis Mabille's Couture SS12 collection.

The hat is a similar, if scaled down version of the original.  The lace is magnificent.

Look how similar the earrings are to these ones she wore when she was younger.  Yes, that's Dita when she was still Heather Sweet.  What a cute little face.

Dita out in Paris in what looks like freezing weather.  I'm kind of surprised her gumboots don't have heels!

Dita at the Zac Posen Fall 2012 show.  What wonderful coloured gloves and matching clutch!  It's an interesting coloured outfit and not one I've seen Dita in before.

At the Jenny Packham presentation at New York Fashion Week.  This coat is amazing.

Here she is wearing the same coat while shopping in Paris.  Love the oversized shawl collar and full skirt.

Dita arriving at Firmenich (a perfume and flavour company) in Paris.  What amazing shoes!  I love this whole outfit, so covered up and terribly sexy at the same time.

At Elton John's AIDS Foundation Academy Awards viewing party.

The dress is by Jenny Packham from her Fall 2012 collection.  I like it much better in the pale pink that Dita has (or is it the same colour and just a trick of the light?).

In March, Dita came to Melbourne for the L'Oreal Melbourne Fashion Week and to launch her line of Muse clothing at David Jones.

At the launch of Von Follies underwear line for Target in Melbourne, Dita wore a Sonia Rykiel wrap dress with a big bunch of fake violets on the shoulder.  Her bra is an overwired one from the Von Follies range.  You can read my review of the Von Follies underwear range here.

At the premier of Christian Louboutin's caberet show 'Feu'.  The dress is by Herve L. Leroux and she is wearing vintage earrings.

Not sure I like it, I'm not a bit fan of those bandage dresses, and the colour is a bit meh.  The earrings are gorgeous though.

Dita at the premier of Wilde's Salome at the Castro Theatre in San Francisco.  This dress is quite strange, the colour is lovely but it's so...boobyish.

Dita at Perez Hilton's 34th Birthday Party & Mad Hatter's Ball.  I love the hat, but the dress looks a bit frumpy.  I'm not sure why, because one would think that the panel down the front would slim the figure, but it's not working.

Well, that wraps up Dita's wardrobe for January to March, stay tuned for Part 2 soon!


  1. Great collection of Dita's style, I especially love her everyday "comfortable" clothing. She looks so at ease and yet beautiful.
    The strappy bra is from Marlies dekkers

  2. Thanks for a great post. I love her style. As you noted, she has been wearing lots of black, I am not sure that really suits her as much as other colours. I love her in red. BTW I could be wrong, but I think that grey/black coat she is wearing in one of the photos (with the shawl collar) is a Lilli Ann.

  3. Thanks for the comments and for letting me know where things are from! I am dying to get one of those Marlies Dekkers bras now. And I agree, the coat does look very Lilli Ann.

  4. LOVE the shoes in the shot where she is visiting Firmenich!

    Dita is so amazing - have you read this article about her

    Makes me like her even more - she's so honest.

  5. I think the admin of this web page is truly working hard in favor of his web site, as here every stuff is quality based information.


  6. Thanks in favor of sharing such a fastidious idea, piece of writing is nice, thats why i have read it completely.
