Dita Von Teese, the burlesque performer, lingerie designer and entrepreneur, is having quite a month, with the release of her new book, Your Beauty Mark: The Ultimate Guide to Eccentric Glamour (with Rose Apodaca), as well as a new red lipstick from MAC called “Von Teese.” I feel like I’ve known about Dita for several years but I became more interested in her look last year after researching racetrack fashion for an article I was writing. I love her vintage and ladylike style! You can see the post I wrote here.
Dita certainly loves her gloves and I have to think that any burlesque stripper worth her salt must have quite a collection of them since I imagine they would be a big part of the act! In her more buttoned-down daily look, I love that she wore long black leather gloves with a gray dress, above, for an interview about her favorite makeup and beauty products with Elle.com, how old Hollywood is that!?! I also like this photo of her in a leopard bra (probably of her own design and from her lingerie collection) with another pair of long black gloves.

Dita seems like the perfect person to give you the friendly reminder that January’s “How I Wear My” is devoted to gloves. Style your favorite pair in an outfit and join us! Photos due by January 5, 2016. Send them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I hope you have a wonderful New Year’s Eve, filled with friends, family and love, as well as lots of champagne and glamour! Think of Dita and break out your long gloves and red lipstick!
