I have recentlybecome obsessed with Dita Von Teese. Not the mannish type, of course.
Not a lot of women can feel so at ease with their own sexuality. Von Teese succeeds in understanding her appeal completely and is not afraid to exhibit it in a classy way.
To some, the beginning of a career of an 18 year old girl in a strip club seems demeaning and derogatory. To Von Teese, she did not flow along with the current. She has her own imagination and belief of what she sees it (seduction) should be. It is not the business she is interested in. It is the art of seduction that captures her heart. It is about graduating something vulgar into something almost as captivating as Audrey Hepburn.
She did not stop at perfecting the smile, did not stop at the perfect steps in a burlesque show. She incorporated her work into her life philosophy, into her daily life. She has not the husky voice that men find mystery and seductive. She has not the out-in-the open, Jordan type sexuality. She entices by her presence. She entices by arousing anticipation with her subtlety – her looks and her words – the way she speaks it. She chooses to live in the sexiest era, the post war glamour of the 1940s. Out of the three cars she owns, two of which are vintage – one comes from the 1940s, another the 70s.
I admire of her genuine personality and being completely at ease with who she is, and lives the life she believes in.
